My older brother came to Traverse Victorian very ill. On his good days he enjoyed visiting with the other residents out in the fenced and locked garden area. It was so peaceful there with the walkway and flowers. Even on bad days he still enjoyed sitting out there. He didn't eat much but said the meals were very good. When he didn't feel like eating the chef would make him a special milkshake. The caregivers were very attentive to all his needs. The hospice nurses were wonderful to him and comforting to me. I would definitely recommend Traverse Victorian for any family who are struggling with how to care for their loved ones. It's a hard decision to make but the staff there are very compassionate and helpful.

I found Traverse Victorian, but I am not happy with it. Insufficient help; my sister had had a stroke, and it was not recognized as a stroke. Eventually, where she had previously been, they were very aware of the dressings they change and her personality, and nobody could identify what happened or what was wrong. By that, I mean she became almost schizophrenic. All of that has passed now, and that’s the problem.
When I took her to the facility, she is in right now, she had been in the hospital. She had a great deal of physiotherapy and was able to walk in with her walker into the facility and then to her room. But she is in bed all the time now. They don’t encourage her or go out for meals. It is easier I think just to bring the meal and put it down. Actually, I have been in the insurance business and still am, so I really know the difference, and these people have about five places; the last one that they uilt is like ticking old room motels and going in.
My sister is in a very attractive room. It is not physical aspects necessarily except that one thing I kind of object to is that she never sees people or hears people. It was quiet, but you are living there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, nobody is coming in to your room unless to bring your medicine and then leave. There is very little communication, and I have watched her just go down. She is in bed practically full time except when she gets up to use the porta potti right next to her bed. They do not have enough help, the nurse at the most comes once a week, and I don’t know how many patients they have, but I know it has increased. There is just no way one day that she can’t get around and see people. The population gets larger and larger, and then when my sister went in to have a shot of sciatica, first of all they didn’t want her to go, and I said I had helped her previously and I really just took her into the very same doctor we had used before.
