My husband was given a long acting medication and told he could chew it up. This mistake gave him halucinations . He saw animals coming out of the walls to eat him. After 9 days in Chester County Hospital he was ok. YOu NEVER chew up time release capsules.

My sister spent the last few weeks of her life at Brandywine Hall. The staff was professional, caring and helpful, and the nurses were the most patient, sweet people that my family has ever dealt with in healthcare facilities. We are extremely grateful to them for the kindness they showed to our sister.

I visited Brandy Hall in West Chester. The people seemed nice, but there was a definite odor of urine and industrial cleaners. They had no private rooms.

My grandmother suffered from dementia so we had to put her in a place that could provide 24 hour care. She did not want to go and it was really hard to leave her once we settled her at Brandywine Hall. I researched and looked at several in the area before hand and I was disgusted with the ammonia urine like smells when walking into the building and on each floor. I liked Brandywine Hall for the simple reason that it was clean and the environment was very relaxed and had many plants and large windows with bird feeders and gardens to look at. These are the simple things that often make us smile when we are immobile. I felt there was adequate staff to handle the case load on each floor as well. My grandmother was lucky enough to have a very loving and supportive family unlike others at Brandywine and from my observation they were cared for very well and cleaned daily. Growing attached to other residents I would bring my dog in so they could pet and love her. This made everyone's day including my dog's! There are not to many negative things for me to say. They would misplace her teeth (Bridge) often and then would not look for it and she would have to eat gruel until I made them find it. It seemed the nursing staff did not take the time to help her eat. It took my grandmother sometimes an hour to eat a whole meal and the nursing staff did not have the time for that and often would even try and take the tray of food away before she was done. This is why our family made time to be with her for at least two meals a day so she would not continue to lose weight.
