I am/was a resident of this facility
I'm a current resident of Cayuga Ridge located in Ithaca, NY. My experience has been mixed with both positive, and negative opinions. First I'd give the aides full professional praise. They have two aides caring for thirty residents, and I know that there are times that they don't take time to stop for bathroom breaks. Their genuine regard for the residents care is noteworthy. Also the dietary department puts a lot of effort into making nutritious and appealing meals. The weaknesses of the facility are the lack of comfortable beds, or clean furnishings for the residents. Without these in place, it does not promote a healthy environment for the residents. I hope to never become a resident here again.
I visited this facility
Overall, I would have to say that my experience was positive. I thought that in general, the staff was rather accommodating. The nurses seemed polite and considerate with the residents. There was even a staff member responsible for daily activities to keep the residents engaged. The staff did their job adequately and used the most of what resources they had.The facilities is a little mixed for me. I would say in the end that it is adequate. The building is rather large, but I felt that the interior felt a little rundown. There were some places that were closed off and everything felt old. However, the main areas were still kept fairly tidy and functional, so I thought it wasn't really that much of a deal.I didn't really get to experience all of the amenities, but overall I thought it was decent. There is a very large dining area/activities room on the first floor. It allows for residents to gather and socialize. On individual floors, there are TV rooms as well as a dining area. These places are sparsely decorated but are still functional. The rooms were rather small, but it was large enough to fit a large bed, a TV, and a mini fridge. Most rooms had a window view and could see the outside landscape.In the end, I thought my experience was pleasant. Cayuga Ridge is not a high-scale nursing home. Rather it is more for those with a budget. This is more apparent when visiting the place, but it is important to note that the staff does everything to make things amenable for the residents as well as for the visitors.
