Reviews of Stoney Brook Assisted Living & Memory Care of Hewitt
Loyal daughter May 07, 2015
I am a friend or relative of resident
Stoney Brook is fairly new, clean, and has really nice employees! Everything is priced ala carte so if your relative needs help w/meds, bathing, dressing, transfers into/out of a wheel chair, etc… there is a point system used to determine how many points attributed to each item and then priced/point. The restaurant style meals are very nice, and they have some things that are always available. The staff really makes every effort to get to know each resident and be an encouragement to them. The calendar of activities is wonderful, and they encourage everyone to participate. There is also a snack area where residents can go to find snacks/cold water throughout the day. My only dissatisfaction was the way they handled my relative's dis-charge after receiving a comment from a 3rd party caregiver that his memory was declining. They gave him a 30-day notice to leave at that time, and insisted on an around-the-clock sitter beginning the following day, for the remainder of his time there. I understood that they considered him "at risk for elopement," and that if they didn't respond to the 3rd party's recommendation, then they would be liable if something did happen. However, that 3rd party was wrong, and after we brought my relative home, we have not had any problems with wandering off. I didn't feel that the Memory Care unit was appropriate for him and after touring it, definitely didn't want him to go in there. He was recovering from a stroke, and not an alzheimer's patient. I felt that he would decline, and there were some aggressive women in there.
