My mom is staying in the Elderwood Senior Care for a couple months, but she'll be getting out next week. She's getting excellent care in there. The facility, the staff, and the food are all top-notch.

The reason this has 3 stars is it is neither good nor bad. They were caring and provided basic care, yet the staff was obviously over worked and under paid. Some were 'lifers' and others young workers who seemed disgruntled. All in all though the care was satisfactory, but as I said my mother felt she needed to visit my father everyday just to make sure he was cared for correctly. The thing is my father had Parkinson's, therefore he was unable to fully communicate his needs and the staff would not check on him enough. This affects his drooling, bathroom visits, and general care. In the end he died of a 'Kennedy Ulcer' which is basically a glorified bedsore which stars to cause necrosis of the skin. This was brought on by not moving enough and sitting for too long. In truth he was not an active type which exacerbated it, but more encouragement from staff would have helped.

My grandmother and her significant other have been at Elderwood for approximately one year. The rooms are fairly small but offer convenience so you would not have much to move around. When walking into the room is the kitchen and living area together. Her bedroom appears to be bigger than her living area and the bathroom is connected off the bedroom. I have gone to eat meals with the m while at the facility. The servers in dining room know all the residents names and their preference for drinks. They are polite and courteous. The person that drives them to their appointments is very vibrant and personable. She also knows the residents names and you can tell she cares for everyone. On one occasion, my grandmother's significant other had a hard time with shopping. The driver made sure that she notified the nurses upon return. The facility then sent out two nurses to check on him and ensure he was well. The food that is served is okay and lists many choices as well as special. The menu, however, does not seem to change much. The facility is well kept and clean. It offers a walking trail with a small pond.The landscaping surrounding the building is well kept and very presentable. My grandmother enjoys staying there and does not have complaints either.

Elderwood at Wedgewood has been very insturmental in my mom's care. All of her needs are being met and the staff really gets to know their residents.
I have watched them in action when my mom has an outburst and they are able to get her redirected and calm her down. They are wonderful. The facility is very clean and organized, has plenty of activities for the residents to keep their minds as active as possible.
