My information applies only to Carepointe which is the short-term skilled nursing center at Cathedral Village. I was very grateful when there was space for my relative to be admitted to Carepointe because I had had experience at another nursing facility that was definitely inferior. Nevertheless, I found 3 things that seemed important enough not to give an overall rating of EXCELLENT to Carepointe. 1) We had 2 staff conferences about the treatment plan for my relative and neither of the 2 physicians attended either. (Generally, the physicians alternate the days of the week that they are present and they have additional responsibilities for patients on the 2nd floor of the building, as well.) 2)Three key staff members were either on vacation or left Carepointe's employment within the month, making continuity of treatment and continuity of communication difficult. 3) Although an alternative physician was supposed to be available on weekends, I was told this doctor could not make changes in medication, even when there seemed to be very good reasons to do so. (The solution is a patient may refuse to take a medication.)

Cathedral Village is a very good facility. It allows for graduated care that ranges from independent living to full nursing care. The apartments for independent living are fairly spacious. They include a kitchenette so the residents can prepare their own meals. There are also meals that are prepared on site that a resident can go to. A resident is charged based on how many meals they eat at the facility. The interaction of the residents is also encouraged. There are many different activities to choose from that are both intellectual and physical in nature. There is a library and computers available for the residents. There is a pool and exercise room. There are also many local amenities that are easy to get to either by public transit or by automobile.
It is really good that the staff encourages the restaurants to be active in the community. They check on residents who are not as active or who do not show up for any regularly scheduled activities. The biggest downside is that the doctors on staff do not have admitting privileges at the area hospitals. This means that the residents must go through the emergency room to get admitted to a hospital which is not a convenient way to do it and can take a long time to occur.
