My mother was a resident for six weeks in the assisted living side. She had recent surgery and dementia. The staff did not communicate her health care needs to each other. She was at risk for falling, yet the staff did not notify each other of this. She developed two pressure ulcers that they did not tell our family about. The staff took between 15 to 45 minutes to answer any call lights. The first time I visited, I walked in walked through the building, pass several workers who did not ask my name or business being there. I didn't know there was a visitor check-in process until I had visited her 4 times!
When I visited my mother, I noticed a bruise on her face. When I asked about it, no one could answer. I spoke with the doctor several times. The doctor did not work with her primary doctor about mother's care. Needless to say, we moved my mother to a better facility.
The facility is beautiful, very inviting, but when you take the cosmetics away, care is lacking. In my opinion, that's what truly matters.

I visited this facility
Bridgeview Estates has acute care, assisted care, and the apartments. It was very nice. The apartments were very nice; we saw the one-bedrooms and the two-bedrooms. All the staff seemed helpful. The food was very good. They had a lot of different activities, plus go out of the facility to go places and do things.

My mom was in Bridgeview Estates. The regular staff was very wonderful and very caring, but the administration was difficult to work with. When we were asking about certain questions for her, the staff was more than willing to help her, but the administration thought that she would be too difficult. The facility was very pleasant. They had a nice dining room, and the rooms were nice as well.
The administration called my brother who lives in Idaho and told him that she needed to be moved to a hospice. Some of the difficulty came when my brother said we will take her to the doctor and see what the doctor will say. They said he does not need to, and they will just move her into a hospice. He was not happy about it. He took her to the doctor and the doctor said she was not ready for hospice care yet. I would not put our mom back in there.

It was a wonderful experience with this facility. They took care of my father, and made sure that he had everything he could need. They took him to his doctor appointments, and helped him take his medication.
