Reviews of Braybrook at Bayonet Point

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mom has dementia. She's in the hospice of Braybrook Assisted Living. It is like a big house with rooms along the border and they have everything open up in the center. As far as I know, mom likes it. We are a little scared before because she was at another assisted living facility where everybody are walking around smiling. This place here is kind of quiet.
When I had an appointment at 11:00, I made sure that I was there at 9:00 so they are not prepared. I want to see what it is really like. They are friendly and I didn't see anything out of the ordinary. My mom is in a private room with her own bath and it is spacious enough for her. I saw the dining room with a big dining room table that fits everybody. It is more like a family style. They have activities like karaoke on Wednesdays, bingo, and I think they have people coming in to do music.
I visited this facility
My mother is attending daycare services every other day and although she does have Alzheimers, she seems to be in very good spirits when I pick her up in the afternoon. The place is always clean, smells good and they know how to redirect those with dementia and Alzheimers. The same lady that worked there 3 yrs ago when my mother stayed there for a month after surgery is still working there, and that is a good sign that employees are treated very well also as that is a very tough job. The meals are homemade and are quite delicious; there is always coffee in a carafe for the residents and it does have a feeling of home, not an institution.
