Reviews of Beacon Ridge, A Choice Comm

I am a friend or relative of a resident
When I first visited Beacon Ridge, I was a little nervous because I thought maybe it was too small and unqualified because of their calm and quiet atmosphere. Although, upon visiting another facility and having to move another relative out of that facility to this one, I realized sometimes a more private, home-like facility is better. One of the unique things about Beacon Ridge is they actually have pets living on site in the facility for the patients and their friends and family to visit with and look at such as dogs, birds, fish, etc. They were very calm animals, but still nice and relaxing to have around. Of course, my parents are more in control of my grandmothers care than I am, so I was not there right off the bat. So when I arrived there a couple weeks after she did to visit her, I noticed that most of the staff that came in at different times knew her name, knew that she liked sports (which sports and which players,) and seemed to know a lot about her. Some of the negatives were things that weren't that big, things such as outdated fixtures, maybe some new flooring would be nice and some new TV's, stuff like that. However, you can't expect a lot when you aren't going to a state facility. One of the nurses seemed to only want to talk about herself, and of course we want to be there for our family member. My grandmother did eventually end up getting a bedsore, but from what I understand happens regularly when a patient is somewhere like this, being basically bedridden. It is a very hard experience seeing someone you love on a daily basis, as my dad does, in a bed because it does change their personality but it helps to have a good facility like Beacon Ridge.
