The administrative or nursing staff don't understand Alzheimer's Disease or dementia. I spoke to professionals in Indianapolis who specialize in these disease, and they agreed with me. The admin and some of the nursing staff show bias against residents with these challenges.

There is a lot of staff turnover. The food is average most of the time. They have made promises that they don't keep. A pontoon boat (two summers have passed without boat rides for residents) and a garden to which residents can contribute and outdoor dining in the summer (never happened).

The building and grounds are attractive. There are activities, but they don't meet everyone's interests.

Provider Response

We are excited to implement the innovative Behavior-Based Ergonomics Therapy (BBET) Program to improve the quality of life for our residents with Alzheimer's and dementia. The BBET Program has received 6 national awards. BBET uses Ergonomics and Neuroscience to help us achieve our goal of minimizing the use of behavioral medications. The program provides therapeutic activities including music, videos, cognitive stimulation, and memory props to engage residents in a way that is customized to their interests and capabilities. In the coming months, we will be setting up a BBET Resource Center, training our staff, and holding a special family night to introduce our Memory Care families to the BBET Program. As a community we strive to provide our residents with the best possible care! Our new Executive Chef recently joined our team, and is excited to strengthen and enhance our dining mission here at Solana. We appreciate your feedback and we are always available to meet with any of our residents and family members at anytime. Please feel free to call and schedule an appointment with our General Manager and 317.860.0000 .

First of all the facility is designed to attract those of us who are placing our family in their care...don't be fooled. Most of us have family who were living back in the 40's,50's and 60's so why would the decorate it to cater to artsy type? To sell to the families that's why! It is WAY expensive and they have no experience with memory care. I put my relative initially in assisted living because the Alzheimers was progressing enough to where assistance was needed. They were aware enough to know they did NOT want to be locked in. Due to a flight risk they had a bracelet that would lock the doors when they tried to get out. After one week and two SUCCESSFUL attempts to get out, where on one attempt they had NO CLUE of their absence until a stranger brought them back, up the the memory care unit they went. Two months (only 20 days under Solana's roof) and many trips out to a pysch hospital for med adjustments they were KICKED out. This facility opened way to soon and was not prepared to handle residents who struggled adjusting to this new environment. Not to mention the bedroom was never cleaned, laundry never done and showers never taken. And I mean NEVER! So do your research first! Oh and there have been others that I found out were asked to leave. They only prefer the easy going Alzheimers patients whatever that is.

Provider Response

We appreciate your message and want you to know that the safety and health are our top priority of all our residents. Our community strives to provide a home-like environment to our residents who are challenged with various dementia diagnoses that maximizes dignity, productivity and quality of life. Admission to the program is not based solely upon diagnosis or disease stage, but is based on a variety of criteria as dictated by the Indiana State Department of Health and our Community. The decision to accept an individual to our Memory Care Program is made at the community level and is based upon the best information gathered by an interdisciplinary team (Clinical Director and General Manager) following the initial admission assessment. Continued residency in our Memory Care is based on criteria that have been set forth by our Community. On occasion, it becomes clear, based on the state criteria, that an admission acceptance may have been inappropriate or that a resident has progressed beyond the scope of care offered by our Memory Care Program. Such occurrences may warrant a resident relocation. Our community proudly works together in a team environment with residents, family, staff and physician to provide the best possible atmosphere for all residents. We welcome and promote open communication at all times. Please feel free to contact us at anytime to discuss any concerns you may have.

The reason we chose Traditions at Solana was because it's on a lake and it's got the homiest and most welcoming atmosphere. It suited my parents' needs the best. They take the residents out on the pontoon boat and they also have a golf hole out in the water. They have a little bit of different activities and the standard ones. My parents are going to be in the independent living and they're waiting for the new ones to be built.

This place is really overpriced for the poor attention to the residents' needs. Even after repeated attempts to bring issues to the attention of the staff and management, we did not see change and moved my grandmother out.

We chose Traditions at Solana for my parent because it is in a good location, it is brand new, and it is very clean. This place is large. It is just a really nice facility. It also overlooks the river. It is a surprisingly beautiful place. I was shocked because they take Medicaid also. The staff is excellent. They're very friendly and very helpful. I ate there; the food is very good. I would recommend Traditions at Solana.

My mom is in Solana. It was in the high end of nice. It is really pretty and new. It is Medicaid waiver certified. They did a really good job. The only down side is that the chef isn't all that good, but other than the food, it's doing well. We like it. There is a practitioner who is right there. We like the staff. Things have been pretty good. I highly recommend it. They have activities. They do everything you can think of. They have a theater. They do arts & crafts every day. They have an exercise room.

The place is brand new, and they only had seven or eight people in their memory care unit, so it was quiet. Traditions at Solana has got a big open day room with the TV area and the eating area. They did have assisted living, and one half of the floor is designated for memory care. It is all arranged differently. This unit opened up June 2014, so everything is brand new and very upscale looking. The locked unit opens up to the very large day room. They have a lot of facilities on the floor like a kitchen and refrigerator. They have their own tables at one end of the large room. Most of their food comes from the kitchen that makes the food for assisted living. They can still bake cookies or whatever right there. They can do stuff right there if they wanted to like cook an egg for somebody that didn't want what is served. They have a smallish table, and they sit in groups however they want to. They have individual rooms, and you have to bring your own furniture. Each room has a very large window that overlooks one side of the building. Once in a while, the TV might be loud because people can't hear that well, but in general it is a calm and quiet place.

We chose Traditions at Solana for my brother because it is so very nice. It has a very nice location, and the facility itself is extremely nice. It's some place I wouldn't mind living myself. Actually my brother has also toured other facilities, and it is the best choice for him. The staff is extremely pleasant and professional. They were doing whatever they needed to do to make sure our needs were met. They have a movie theater -- where they watch a movie once a week -- and a lounge area where they have a happy hour once or twice a week. They even take them shopping. Some boating is possible around the facility. They are planning to get some kind of a boat because they have a river behind them and a lake in the front. Solano is a brand new facility who just opened last June. It is well built over the course of probably the past year and a half. They have all the bells and whistles.
