My experience with MJHS has been nothing but excellent, from day 1. They have become a family to me and my parents and I have great peace of mind knowing that they are in the best possible place with caring and professional people around them at all times.
I visited several facilities as I was looking for a place for both my parents. Dad has advanced Alzheimer's and mom has had several strokes, dementia, and breast cancer, among other things. My one and only choice was always Miami Jewish and I couldn't be happier that they now get to call it home.
Everyone I have met, from admissions to nursing to doctors to therapists and even environmental services has been nothing but helpful, kind and professional.
Mom has had several episodes of syncope and I have personally been there when they react and act immediately to help her out. They are incredibly patient with her and their main concern is her well-being and safety.
My father's Alzheimer's has made the transition into the home quite difficult and having lived with my father for the past 2 years I know how tough it can be. Yet, everyone is always doing their best to make him feel at home, they reassure him and care for him and have his comfort and safety as their number 1 priority. There was a point when he was becoming more and more confused, and extremely agitated, and the medical staff, including Dr. Lopez and Dr. Agronin came in and addressed this issue by seeing and monitoring dad but also by talking to me to see which care route would be best for him. Dad is now doing much better, and that is all thanks to everyone's efforts.
I live outside of the country, which makes matters for me that much more difficult. Yet, I know that they are in the best possible care right now. I speak with the staff and my parents every day to keep up to date. And, if anything should happen, the nurses or social worker immediately notify me. For example, my mother had to go back to the hospital for a pacemaker, and everyone was attentive and patient with me as I asked a million questions and of course worried about mom, dad being alone and me not being there. Being able to ask the questions and have a conversation about this, made me feel safe...even though I am halfway across the world.
This weekend with Hurricane Irma threatening the state, they have extra staff on board, and are more than fully prepared to ensure that the residents are safe.
And yes, I live outside of the country, but have family who visit mom and dad and they also agree with me in that the facility is simply great!
All in all: the Physical Therapy staff is amazing. The nurses are caring, professional and kind. Their social worker is on top of things and is a great link in between all the different departments. The activities team does an amazing job at having different activities and picking as many residents up so that they can participate and become a part of the community (no easy task.). I could go on and on and have many more examples of why I absolutely recommend this facility. They have given me and my parents peace of mind, and that is simply priceless.
