Memory Care Reviews for Grace Point Place

October 01, 2018

By Beagle fan

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

I, my siblings and two cousins are my aunt's remaining family. By fortuitous circumstances, I was referred to Grace Point by one of the social workers at an assisted living facility which has a 2 to three year waiting list. I met with community relations director and was given a tour. From the minute I walked in the lobby door I very impressed by the decor, aroma and especially the lighting. During the tour I met the activities director who gave me the impression that she was quite enthused about her job. Upon leaving that day, I immediately called my sister and one of my cousins and made arrangements to meet with the community relations director the next day so they could see the facility. We unanimously decided that this where my aunt needed to be. Fortunately we were able to secure a residency for her her so she could obtain the physical therapy and more important, treatment for Alzheimer's dementia. Once she was placed, I found the entire staff from maintenance to medical personnel very friendly, attentive and willing to listen and be of assistance. Inquiries, whether in person, by telephone or email were addressed in a timely fashion. We were also very much impressed by the efforts made by Grace Point to educate family members about aging, dementia and related matters. My aunt has now been a resident for two months and the standard of excellence in care has shown every sign of being maintained. My family members and I have had a tremendous burden lifted from us in knowing my aunt is where she needs to be and is doing well because of it.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

We entered this spectacular 5 star establishment and I was immediately struck by the fresh aroma and impeccably clean foyer when I exclaimed, "Can I get a room here too!" To say that I was impressed during my personalized tour of Grace Point is an understatement. From the moment we walked through the doors, the director Meredith and the entire staff embraced us as family and I knew this would be dad's new safe haven home. Every phone call, every visit, every question and concern is given full and immediate attention by multiple members of the staff and we can all sleep better each night knowing dad is in a clean, safe and beautiful environment with a loving and attentive staff 24 hours a day. What does dad enjoy doing? What will keep dad engaged throughout the day? What soothes dad? Are all top of mind questions that the staff explores daily to help dad build relationships and bring a sense of purpose and joy to dad's days. The director bought dad a mailbox and the staff fills it with mail because they discovered dad looks forward to that! How novel! How thoughtful! The staff at Grace Point has been teaching us more about dad than we knew. He's treated with dignity and as a special individual and we are so grateful to everyone at Grace Point. They've made this very painful and emotional experience with dementia as positive as it could possibly be.

Questions about Grace Point Place

What ongoing training does the staff receive in dementia care?

Our employee training program begins with a 40 hour orientation, before resident assignments are given and continue monthly. We believe on-going education is essential to our success and are dedicated to improving staff knowledge on topics related to safety, awareness and memory loss of all types.

How many staffers are on duty in the daytime and overnight?

Our staff scheduling is based on not only the number of residents served but also on their level of assistance needed. The staffing fluctuates based on meeting the needs of our residents, but will typically average approximately 8 residents per caregiver.

Our community is vibrant! We provide daily and monthly calendars to families that provide a complete listing of all scheduled programs. On average, 6-8 resident programs are scheduled each day and 1:1 engagement opportunities are endless.

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

Prior to a new resident arriving, our Director of Clinical Services will meet with each new resident and evaluate their needs, discuss with the family and activate a care plan. Approximately 4-8 weeks after arriving at the community, the Executive Director and Clinical Services Director welcome each family to a care plan review meeting to discuss clinical questions or concerns. Assessments are repeated regularly and at the time of any noticed change in condition.

Family style dining in smaller groups are certainly a driving factor to our successful dining experience. Staff assists residents at each meal.
