My father was in Brightmoor Hospice for about two and a half weeks. The facility was really good. The rooms were great. They had individual balconies that the family could go out to. They took good care of the families as well as the patients. It was a good place for him to be taken care of. They did a great job, and they made it easy for the family. I would recommend Brightmoor for people's family.
Brightmoor Hospice has three levels of care assisted living, nursing, and hospice. They had told me that they could provide respite care to see how they would be able to accommodate dad. They would let dad come in for a couple of weeks. I was considering Brightmoor because you could still maintain in one place for different levels of care. It's a very large facility with lots of activities there, but the rooms were much smaller and you share a bathroom and that would be difficult.
My sister-in-law stayed at Brightmoor overnight. I liked them very much. The place was clean, light and airy. The people were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and they explained things to you. They listened and they were good.
I have been a caregiver for a special lady,who is endeared and addressed as Granny,with Azheimers disease for two years. During this time,Granny has been under Brightmoor Hospice care which has allowed her to remain in her own home. The employees of Brightmoor Hospice have been involved in all aspects of grannys care.An aide comes in every day to assist with her personal care including giving her a bath,washing her hair,dressing her and changing her bed.A nurse comes in once a week to make sure her vita signs are normal and all medical needs are taken care of. A chaplain and social worker visit once a month to address social and emotional concerns. Brightmoor is just not about the care of the patient. The team of caregivers from Brightmoor Hospice ensures that Grannys home caregivers are emotionally and spiritually fit as well. They go above and beyond to make sure Brightmoor Hospice patients and their caregivers have support aong the path of life's journey thru caring,dedication,and respect.
I will be forever grateful for the love and support you all have given our family during one of the hardest times in our lives. My mother was and will always be the most precious part of my life. Brightmoor treated her with the most gentle, loving care than I ever could have imagined. Forever grateful for walking us through this, with such love. An amazing group of people, we were so blessed to have.
My mother passed after spending the last seven days of her life on this earth in this facility. I tend to be very short on words (and very critical of providing reivews on associated services such as this). I always thought of facilities like this as government sponsored "Death Clinics". However, I could never have imagined my mom being in a better place as she lived out her final days.
These people as amazing! Everyday, I wanted to give the care givers a hug and a "thank you" for the excellent care they provided my mom. But in the end, I realized that they were only doing what must come natural to them; delivering the best continuous and thoughtful care to all her needs, and the needs of her family. They were always there to answer questions, and help to prepare me and my family for every question and need as we struggled to deal with our own grief and pending loss. We got to know all the staff by name as they got to know us. They were as sensitive to our own (sometimes selfish) needs and wants) as they tirelessly addressed every need of my Mom.
The facility is emaculate, cheerful and welcoming. Literally a pleasent place to visit everyday under the circumstances. I never felt the dread of walking through the front doors, as I always felt I was visiting a loved one i a home environment. They always greated us with a smile and an update , and we always knew that the answers to our questions were just a few steps away.
I pray that no one will ever have to use the services of a hospice. Sadly, many of us will. But if I ever have to go through this experience again, I would never even think of considering another facility. This was what caring and comfort is supposed to be when your loved one needs this special care.
Thanks again to you all at Brightmoor. I know that my Mom got the most loving care she could ever need. I owe you all a standing ovation! I will never forget what you did for me and my family.
