Memory Care Reviews for Atrium Gardens

November 30, 2015

By William L.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My father has been at Belvedere Commons for six weeks. He’s going to be there for a couple of months, mainly for respite care. Every time I’ve gone to visit him, he looks like he’s been well cared for, and he seems to be happy. We feel like the staff is very professional and very caring. They have a monthly activity schedule. It’s well maintained and clean; it doesn’t have odors like some of the homes do. Because it’s not a large facility, we feel that he gets a little bit more attention here.

Provider Response

William L, Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review of Belvedere Commons of Tampa. We are delighted to know that your father is happy and you are pleased with his care. Thanks for taking advantage of our "Graceful Stays" respite program and calling Belvedere Commons of Tampa home.

I had my father living here. We moved him out within a month of him being here. The nursing staff was constantly not giving him his meds. I had to ask them to give him showers because he smelled and it seemed as though he was not getting showers regularly. The place although older looking seemed cleaned but it did have a constant odor of fecal matter. I felt as though my voice as an advocate of my fathers was not taken seriously. He has dementia & he cannot speak for himself. I feel like the wellness director did not take her job seriously. I had to get him out fast because I feared his well-being

I visited this facility

The Belvedere Commons of Tampa assisted living facility looked really well-kept from the outside, with nicely landscaped grounds. We especially liked the park-like atmosphere of the grounds, which was very peaceful. The main foyer had a lovely receiving area, reminiscent of a quaint country home. The communal areas all had interesting activities occurring, from reading to games and resident interactions. It was clear that the residents enjoy living here. Events and outings scheduled include restaurants, art museums, the library, local films and crafts, fine dining and theater. They also host monthly parties for residents at the facility which they encourage friends and family to attend. The food choices looked nutritious and delicious, as well as the regular snacks - offered continually. The dining areas have many nice menu options. The living suites were all ample and nicely decorated. The patio areas also had barbeques where they host gatherings and private parties. We could see that the residents are treated with care, kindness and respect in this thoughtful living environment.

What ongoing training does the staff receive in dementia care?

Every employee is required to complete 8 hours of initial Alzheimer's training, followed by an annual update of 4 hours. Our caregiver training allows our staff to obtain a deeper knowledge of Alzheimer's disease and dementia, aids in managing changes in communication and behavior, safety tips, fall prevention strategies and emergency procedures.

What programs or activities does Atrium Gardens offer to keep residents engaged? How does the staff engage residents' long-term memories?

Every resident is encouraged to use their remaining skills in their daily activities and utilizing techniques that encourage residents to be as independent as possible. At Atrium Gardens, we provide a wide range of classes, activities and entertainment to invigorate your loved ones mind, and accommodates their level of functioning. The elements in our buildings structure and layout is also deigned to help in creating opportunities for meaningful activity, with indoor and outdoor atrium and walking paths.

Who assesses residents' health and cognitive functioning? How often is that assessment repeated?

A baseline holistic assessment is completed on admission to our community of the residents abilities and background. This baseline assessment is important to Atrium Gardens, so we are able to provide individualized care and assistance that is tailored to the residents needs. Equally important, ongoing monitoring and assessments of our residents is completed by our community's well trained, around-the-clock caregivers and trained staff nurses.

What techniques does Atrium Gardens use to support memory care residents during mealtimes?

Proper nutrition is important to keep the body strong and healthy. Our facility ensures to limit distractions by keeping our table setting simple, serving only one or two foods at a time -- too many foods at once may be overwhelming. We like to make meals an enjoyable social event, so our residents are encouraged to eat together in our community dinning area while providing our residents with plenty of time to eat. We also ensure flexible food preferences. Individuals with dementia may suddenly develop new food preferences or reject foods that were liked in the past, so this is kept in mind when preparing foods.

How does Atrium Gardens keep residents' families informed about their loved ones' health?

This is where our family plays an essential role. A residents memories and emotional health are strengthened by reminiscing and connecting with family. Atrium Gardens works to keep each family informed of their loved ones, simply with a phone call and/or email. Our community offers social events that families are encouraged to attend. We have also equipped our community with technology that provides ease for staff to stay in touch with residents' families.
