The rooms at Bay Breeze were OK if you're by the window side. If you're by the door side, it was kind of crowded but acceptable. The rooms were very clean, and they stay clean. The food is brought to the room. My mother's complaint was by the time they got the food to her, because she's at the end room, her food was not as hot at it should have been. They got a a couple of good workers there who seemed to care, especially when they have to take her to showers. They were very good. But the ratio of workers to patient in my opinion was not acceptable. Both of my parents were in there for about 25 days.

I visited this facility
The atmosphere at Bay Breeze Nursing and Retirement Center seemed depressing. The personnel that I met seemed nice and pleasant, but the atmosphere was very depressing. There were at least two people to a room, which seemed more like a hospital room. The patients were either lying in their beds or in a chair or wheelchair. This facility was a locked-door-type situation where you have to push a buzzer to make the door open because of the people with Alzheimers. The outside was beautiful, though. It was very pretty on the outside.

My mother was in skilled nursing here for 3 months due to a stroke and broken collarbone. From there she moved to the ALF for the remainder of her life. I can not put into words how wonderful the staff is. They loved and cared for my mom as if she were their own. The day before she passed, every staff member of the ALF visited her room with hugs and kisses and "i love yous". Our family was so touched and my mom smiled at everyone one of them and told them she loved them too and my mom never said anything she didn't mean! There could be no better place for my mom to have lived out her final years. She couldn't have been more well taken care of. I have gained lifetime friends (more like family) at Bay Breeze ALF who I will forever be thankful for...thankful for making my mom's life happy and safe, and for giving me peace of mind knowing how well she was being cared for by people would go above and beyond to make sure they were.

My 83 yr old mother-in-law was in rehab for 3 months and then their assisted living facility for a year before she passed away. I cannot say enough good things about their warm, loving, "happy" staff and their immaculate, bright sunny facility. She was so happy there and felt like she was in her own home surrounded by friends and family. She loved her private room with her private bathroom and her little patio and garden outside. They let the resident decorate their rooms however they want with their own furniture, pictures, plants etc. The dining room is like a nice restaurant and they have lots of big barbecues, parties, holiday events and live entertainment on a regular basis. I enjoyed visiting with her there because ever employee seemed to really love their job and the residents they took care of. Baybreeze redefines "nursing home". It was just home for her and we are so indebted to them for taking such good care of her down to her very last day! We will miss them all dearly...

My great grand mother is a resident at Bay Breeze Nursing & Retirement Center. Shes been there now going on four years. She is one hundred and one years old. A Centurion, a time warrior if you will. Even still, she maintains the same clarity and mental sharpness she had at the tender age of 19. This facility and its staff have definitively made Mamaw's last years a better time for her. The staff always are quick to answer our questions and if they don't know the answer they will stop what they are doing and get the information for you, impressive to say the least. They have always treated my grand mother like she was their grand mother, with the respect and dignity that she deserves.When Manmaw turned 100, the facility threw her a 100 birthday bash, and boy did she have fun!! She hasn't seen so many good friends and family like that in years that she lit up like one thousand watt light bulb when she saw them!The facility organized it and facilitated it complete with staff to watch the residents and wait staff to wait on them and their families.I think this facility has what others lack, and that's compassion, you can see it written in the faces of the employes, and I would definitely recommend it.
