I am a friend or relative of resident

I have been very disappointed with Ingleside. The nursing center is atrocious; there is a pronounced odor that is just getting worse and the staff get very angry if you ask them for any help. I would hate be a patient there. If I could, I would move my friend out. She is helpless and the nursing staff do the barest minimum, They leave her wet and I can smell urine when I visit. The management has cut staff hours and it shows. Ingleside is going downhill.

Ingleside is in a very attractive location, right in Rock Creek Park. The residents are interesting, well-educated socially active people and we have many friends there. The buildings are reasonably well kept, though the management has been slow to fix problems the last several years. The front line staff in independent living are usually pleasant, though staffing levels have been cut to the bone and it shows. The dining room is what you find at a mid-level hotel. Nothing exceptional with middle American food. Entrees tend to be bland and over-cooked, with some exceptions. There is a lot of turnover with the wait staff and it can take a long time to get served. The nursing center has been declining for the last several years. It is one of the most expensive options in the area, but the quality of care is quite poor. Again, the low pay leads to significant turnover, and the staff are overworked and can be very short-tempered. The management is very disorganized and has trouble keeping track of medication and paperwork. We experienced numerous episodes where it took far longer than it should have for a caregiver to respond, one was for a fall. If you are considering Ingleside BE SURE to talk to as many residents as possible, and in particular family members of residents of the nursing center. The residents have no voice on the board, and every year there are new arbitrary fees, and the existing fees have been rising significantly. Unfortunately we did not learn about the problems until we had bought in. Ingleside is not the same place we moved into some years ago, and we will be moving out.

My husband is in the long term nursing facility at Ingleside, which is okay. He really needs a memory care unit but they don’t have one yet but they are building a wing. The staff is wonderful. The whole facility is very beautiful and well-maintained but very expensive. The long term nursing unit is more like a hospital facility. They have individual rooms with bathrooms with a sink and a toilet. There’s a bathing and shower station where clients are bathe. There’s a communal dining room and another room where they can watch television. They have various outings, music days and they have pets to come to visit. You can bring your own things in the rooms to make you feel more at home. They have physical, occupational and speech therapy. The food is good too.

Ingleside was top-notched, and the staff was very nice. There is a new wing that?s being built; we will have a very nice and spacious unit. The dining area was very nice and upscale. There are a lot of common activities, and the locale was better. It felt very much residential. They have an existing facility that they will be tearing down.

I had a very pleasant visit at Ingleside at Rock Creek. The person I met was a very smart young woman, and it was a very pleasant facility. We saw an apartment that was furnished, and it was absolutely beautiful. The woman living there was kind enough to let us in. It was elegant and well kept.

Mom was at Ingleside at Rock Creek. We loved it until she had a stroke. When she had a stroke, they put her into a facility that I didn’t like at all. I like the staff because they are kind and caring to my mother. The grounds are beautiful, and the place as a whole is beautiful as well.

I visited Ingleside at Rock Creek several times because I have a friend who lives there. It is a little facility at the District of Columbia. It is a first class facility. They have all levels of care. It is physically attractive with lots of things to do. If I had a choice I would have chosen this facility.

It is the most beautiful place we've visited. But you have to buy into it. I talked to them a couple of times. They sent me a brochure with all the layout and pictures of the apartment. I lived and worked in Washington D.C. before I retired, and I've always loved that area. There is so much to do there and so many activities there and I missed all of that. That's where I want to go.

Beautiful location and new facilities have just been added. The location right on the edge of Rock Creek Park is very special. The food is good and the staff very caring. Hard to find anything to fault. It is not close to any services but there is a good transportation program. the new building are really beautiful and make the most of the woodsy setting.

A beautiful setting nestled on the edge of Rock Creek Park. No services and shopping close by however. The apartments are reasonable sized and well furnished. Dining room food and services are well good. Fellow residents seem very congenial.

I visited this facility

A full continuing care retirement community located in northwest District of Columbia with sponsorship by a Presbyterian affilliate. Residents pay a membership fee, refundable inpart depending onlength of residence, and a varying monthly fee. Residents include former foreign services and other government personnel. Facilities are favorably situated next to Rock Creek Park. Public areas and grounds are attractive but apartments are not spacious. Residents have only a limited voice regarding fees and other policy matters. Assisted living and nursing care seem to be of high quality. New larger resident quarters are under construction by revamping some building areas. Occupancy may lagging due to economy.

This is a small facility offering a number of levels of care, from independent living to assisted living to memory care to skilled nursing care. It's located near Rock Creek Park, which affords a very pretty setting. The facility is currently going through a transition and renovating extensively, especially on the older side of the building, which is for skilled nursing residents. But even during renovation, they obviously put added energy into keeping it clean. The whole place is run in a very organized way. While there are residents in need of varying degrees of care, they all seem to be engaged and content. The staff, from the front desk receptionist to the nurses, is very professional and involved. There is a good staff to resident ratio"”and they also make a real attempt to get to know the families and even the visitors. The assisted living units are a nice size, with good views of the park or trees; most have big windows; there are no cooking units. Most people eat in the common dining room, which offers several choices during mealtimes. And most residents say they like the food there. There is a bank and several eating areas onsite. And there's also a consignment store in which residents can swap clothes; many of them look forward to that and want to see what's new each week. There is also a coffee and juice place, where residents can sit around and chat together. There are a number of planned events, such as outings to local performances, but the staff also engages residents with games and discussions of current events in the news. A drawback: Because they are getting down to the barebones during renovation, that may be a little headachy in the future; some passageways will be knocked down and navigating inside will be a little confusing while construction is going on. There will also be a lot less parking space available for visitors during that time. Residents who enter Ingleside at Rock Creek in independent living are given preference if they need to transfer to a level of higher care, so this facility may be good for people who don't want to face moving a number of times as their care needs change.
