I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
I am disgusted with what I had to face today while visiting my best friend today at The Elant in Beacon. I work in the medical field and am understanding to the "under staffed phrase ". However, when I came into her room she was laying in bed at 10:00am and said that the staff had not been in to get her up and cleaned. I asked her if she wanted to get up and sit in the wheelchair for a little while( which I have gotten her up many times before on my own) well when I sat her up she stunk like she had been laying in her urine for a week. Her hair was matted and knotted as well as dirty. I lost it! I went straight to the nurses station and DEMANDED someone come in and take care of this situation. I was told that they were short staffed and that she would make my friend next on the list. Some 20 minutes later it was the Nurse that came in to take care of my friend not an aid. Are you kidding me? I am grateful that my friend was taken care of but I do question how long would it have been if I wasn't there to fight for her? I will be making a lot more frequent stops there now to make sure she is being taken care of properly. It still concerns me about the other residences that don't have anyone to fight for them. So incredibly sad. I am heartbroken and Angry..

Do not put your parent in this place! It's disgusting ! They abuse older people not all the aides are abusive but the ones that I have dealt with are! I caught one yelling at my mother I hate my mother in this place ! The rooms are closets with little or no room if you share the roof leaks horrible when it rains some even leak in the room and it sits for weeks till it gets fixed there is no place to visit and have coffee with your parent the food in the cafeteria and the cafeteria itself is dull and unappetizing but most of all the care my mother receives is not worth what she pays and when I lived in the same star I went there every day because she was being bullied and I would not stand for it! So I was abwatchdog

If your family member needs help using the restroom or has trouble ambulating go somewhere else. They are understaffed and so many of the aides completely ignore them. The social workers say they will help rectify the situation and it never changes. PT and OT are great but once they are gone the patients are lucky to get their basic needs met. Horrible experience. Worse food. Complete disregard for their clients care and well being.

I visited this facility
This review is based on 10 visits of about 4 hours each with my elderly mother in the rehab unit. My mother was put in a shared room. It was very small for two people. The bathroom was tiny, not ventilated and always stank of urine. The walls of the room needed repair and painting, giving it a dingy appearance. After I told staff that my mother had accidentally urinated onto the cushion of a chair in a shared living space, no one cleaned the chair for the remaining few hours I was there. I wonder if anyone ever cleans these accidents, because the smell of urine wafts throughout the facility. But the worst thing I witnessed over and over again was bedridden residents using their call bell and staff rarely coming to find out what the resident needed in less then 10 minutes and sometimes as long as 30 minutes. In fact, the resident rooms and common areas were often without any visible staff for extended periods of time. (Someone with a life-threatening emergency would die before staff arrived.) I even heard patients yelling, "Help!" I checked in on them because no one else was. Most of the patients I spoke with rang their call bell because they needed staff to help to get to a commode/bathroom. If the need was urgent, some of them just gave up and urinated and/or defecated in their diaper/clothes/bed. Whenever I asked staff about these long delays, they told me that there was not enough staff to take care of everyone. I heard one staff loudly scolding a resident who was for asking her for assistance, telling the resident that there were other people to take care of besides her. I believe that if reasonable resident needs are going unmet (which I witnessed repeatedly), the answer is not to blame/scold the residents for requesting help. The answer is to hire enough staff so that patient needs are met. In sum, this is a glum environment with many unhappy residents and insufficient staff.

My Mother was placed in Elant Beacon after medication management in another Facility Senior Behavioral in Sharon CT. My Mom had been diagnosed with Dementia at age 69.I was concerned about the diagnosis at such a young age as well as the level of care she would receive. I found Elant to be a wonderful and safe environment where my Mom was treated with respect and dignity. The staff was pleasant. and very willing to address my questions and concerns. The Social workers returned phone calls and made themselves accessible. I was impressed with the CNAs and there dedication to the residents as well as the short term rehabilitation patients. My Mother who has always been somewhat shy and anxious was put at ease by the nurses and staff. I know that unfortunately my Mom will eventually will not be able to remain home,however it's good to know that she will have a place to go that is close to home and a safe and comfortable environment for my her. I highly recommend Elant of Beacon.

I am/was a resident of this facility
Staff is truly caring. Great rehab facility & staff. Food is less than desirable, though. I stayed there, personally, for 3 weeks after a catastrophic illness. I was treated very well.
