Westside Garden Plaza is a very established care center, but they didn't have rehab until last year, and it's an add-on. The staff seemed very industrious and seemed to care a lot about their patients, and they spend a lot of time in their rooms. The semi-private rooms are nice and spacious. The food is delicious, they do it really well, and they cater to just about any menu. They make sure my wife can eat what they're serving, and they've evidently hired someone who can cook.

I visited this facility
The Westside Village was real nice. It was close to town. Everybody was real nice there. It had good activity program with transportation, just about anything that a senior would want. They had card games going on. They like to go on trips. We ate a meal there; it was very nice. They had large rooms. Their dining room was excellent; the facility was excellent.

I thought Westside Retirement Village was great, but it was extremely high. Not everyone can afford something like that, but it was outstanding. It was progressive. You went on a 1-bedroom apartment. They checked on you twice a day if you didn't come down for whatever meal that you chose to include in your rent. If you were sick, you could pick off a menu and order and they'd bring it up to you. We'd go and have lunch with her at different times and you'd pay like $7 and you can have anything on the menu. The food is great, better than any hospital I've ever been to or seen. For one person, the room was alright. She used a cane and a walker, so she'd get around, but when her scooter was in there, it was cramped. She took some of her furniture with her, but it was nicely furnished. It had a full kitchen, they have a refrigerator, an oven with a range in it and microwave. There were times they went to Lincoln and Covington, Indiana to the steak house. They went to watch a Pacers game. They went different places, they had a Cadillac and a mini bus that they could take them to the shopping center. They had a variety of activities. They played cards and they had different people that would come in and entertain. Then she got older and she went to the assisted living level, which was a very small refrigerator, a microwave, a sink, a bed and they had a little table, an easy chair and a TV. That was about it, but it was okay for her. They took her down to physical therapy. They kept her active. And then at the very end, she was in the nursing home side. You couldn't ask for anything better and they treated us all like we were great, very welcoming. It wasn't home, but she said it was wonderful that they had a place like that.

DO NOT LET THE BEAUTIFUL FACILITY FOOL YOU! Just look below and the Medicare rating! They are horrible. I would give it a NEGATIVE 5 if I could! My loved one was there for short term physical therapy with a plan to come home in a few weeks! They were transported to the hospital in worse shape then when they arrived and the hospital was APPALLED at the horrible condition. They said it was obvious this person was uncared for, ignored, never moved or turned and never received ANY physical therapy! Their DON's drop like flies! The staff couldn't care less. Your loved one WILL suffer here! Understaffed and what they do have is poor at best! Lights go unanswered for HOURS on end! Everyone is forced into a diaper, and only changed once per day! Check your dignity at the door!

Westside Retirement Village seems to be an excellent option for those needing assisted living. The rooms are more than adequately sized and have nice accommodations. The staff have always been friendly, both to me and to those living within the facility. The grounds are beautifully kept. There are several activity rooms, which are helpful not only in staying active, but also for staying social. It seems like those that take care of the individuals in the facility are trustworthy and care about their work. It was not too long ago I also was able to share a meal with my friend at this facility; the food is of decent quality and the selections were varied enough that I feel the options would not become stale. I did find the scratch marks in the elevator to be a tad peculiar, but I attribute them mostly to wheelchairs and other equipment that was being transported via the elevator. All in all, I think it's a fantastic facility with great amenities and a comfortable environment for its residents.
