I visited this facility

I’ve looked at the The Buckingham. They have independent, assisted living, and memory care facilities. I was just checking their memory care. They don’t have enough caretakers to deal with the residents -- they did not have enough caretakers on the floor in general. They only have activities for them in the morning and nothing in the afternoon. They just let them sleep after lunch. They had bingo, bridge, and they take them out to different places like trips to museums. The staff was friendly enough, but nothing special. The food was good; the dining area was nice and clean. The apartments were nice. They need more care staff.

I visited this facility

The Buckingham was very expensive and very large. It had many amenities. They had a lot of staff that took excellent care of the bedridden and the people who are up and rounded and eager movers. All kinds of people had good service there. There was a lot of freedom attached there. They had the Alzheimer's unit, skill nursing and health care units. They had all manners of gradation of facilities for the seniors. The dining rooms were very open, airy and lovely. There were linen napkin and flowers on the table. Their meals were nicely presented and it made me want to stop for lunch. I had seen scheduled deliveries of meals and people sitting in the dining room. The people seemed to be brought regular meals in smaller portion because the healthcare people don't eat a lot. But they came back with a little snack and a beverage later. They fed them often. The place was absolutely spotless. I would recommend them to others if they had the economic ability to pay for it.
