I visited this facility

The first thing that I noticed about Dominion Village of Poquoson which I did not care for, was the lack of security. There was no monitoring for people coming in and out. We stood in the front foyer for a good 30 minutes and nobody even paid attention to us. We could have walked around in that building anywhere we wanted to. No sign-in and sign-out policy. There was an elderly resident in the front area in a wheelchair who had been out, trying to enjoy the day. She was the only person I saw who was out. When she wanted to come back in, she was stuck and we tried to help her with her wheelchair. None of the workers there stopped to help her. I also didn’t like that their meal times have a limited one hour time frame. The facility had a dark and definitely, an old feel to it instead of a bright and light atmosphere. It didn’t have a lifting atmosphere.

Dominion Village was clean and well kept for its age, but it was definitely old. It was clean. The people that I talked to were very nice and accommodating. I thought they understood that their facility was older, but I do believed that they tried to give good care. The rooms were small and the bathroom facility was the worst thing because it was the old bathroom facility and was not easy for handicap and wheelchair's accessibility. My dad would definitely not accept the oldness of the facility, but barring that I would definitely considered them. If the people were okay with small and old room, I would recommend them.

My visit went fine with Dominion Village. It had good accommodations and nice staff. Staff to patient ratio was good. For one person, the rooms were adequate, but for two people they were too small. We were able to discuss their activities, and I think they were age-appropriate. They have plenty of different types of activities for the residents. In comparison to other facilities, there isn’t anything that they stand out in, except that they are pet friendly, but their location is not a good location. There are no amenities anywhere close.

I visited this facility

I came with a friend and his family to visit a relative that was a big part of my life growing up. During my brief stay here I noticed quite a few things, The staff was extremely friendly and personal with every person in the facility. It was clean, there seemed to be plenty of activities for the occupants to participate in and everyone seemed relatively comfortable. Even with all of this though I'm not quite sure about the quality of the care that is provided, during a discussion with one of the nurses the family I was with was bewildered as there had apparently been no communication between the "weekend shift" and the nurses that were currently handling the relative. This concerned us as the person in there care was susceptible to falling (minor occurrences but potentially dangerous) and had an extreme case of dementia, and due to lack of facility communication we had no way of actually finding out if he had any problems over the weekend.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom has Alzheimers and was comfortably living with my dad until a series of events happened. My dad had a massive stroke and my mom came to live with me. I was caring for my mom and working a 6-day a week job and taking her to adult day care (which became very hard for her) My mom's condition was upgraded to severe, therefore needing 24 hr care. While at my house, she fell 3 times and that concerned me. My sister came from NC and we looked at facilities for her to stay. We choose Dominion Village in Poquoson, Va. Since Poquoson is where we all live it seemed perfect. Well it is, it is a small and down-home type of place and I am convinced that she is happy there. She has her own bedroom and her own bath (complete with a tub) and we are allowed to set all the rules. Her meals are served home-style so if she wants more peas she can have them) and with real dinnerware. The staff is caring and very co-operative. I go to see my mom almost every day and she is doing well. I love the facility and what they are doing for the sick. At first there where wrinkles that had to be ironed out but I am convident now that this was the right choice.
