Not a Modern Facility July 03, 2016
I visited this facility
It is hard to rate an overall facility during a few visits. However, there are first impression indicators, which might lead one to believe other problems exist under the surface. One, upon entering the facility, the strong smell of urine was overwhelming. Looking at the existing carpeting, which appears to be old and outdated, one can’t help but believe the pads under the carpet have not been changed for some time. In today’s modern facilities, they don’t even use carpeting to eliminate odors like this. This is clearly not a modern facility. Two, the natural lighting is poor----very poor. This older facility gives off the impression of mood depression because of a lack of nature light. The facility, which was an old business school has never been updated from a construction standpoint and the losers are the patients. This lack of vision only adds to the depressed atmosphere enhanced by the smell once you enter the facility. Three, once you enter the room, which is not a welfare room, but a high paying customer. The smell was unbearable and so strong which only sadden me. Again, the room is wall to wall carpet and I can’t help but feel the carpet and pads have not been changed out or cleaned in a long time. The windows needed to be open immediately to minimize some of the smell, while the bathroom door needed to be closed b/c the smell there was overwhelming. It was sad to leave a friend and loved one at a facility which has not been updated and contains little to no modern immensities for are aging family members.

My parents decided to move into Rhodes Estates Assisted Living facility in 2004. This proved to be a bad mistake. I am a registered nurse in PA and found it necessary to check on them daily to assure of their needs. This facility does not provide proper care on the elderly that need assistance. If you are independent go to an apartment. They are for profit and your money will quickly disappear. My mother stayed there ten years and when she developed end stage dementia went into the hospital they would not take her back nor would they assist into help provide care for her. It was as though she was never a resident there. They want you to believe that they take care of you like family. Such a farce. I found it necessary to report them to PA Dept. of Welfare who provides their licensure for violations. This facility profits off of family in my situation. I was not power of attorney and could not remove my mother. Do Not consider this facility for yourself or your loved ones.
