Assisted Living Reviews for HarborChase of Plainfield

January 27, 2021

By Franki0123

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

When I toured the building and apartments everything was kept up well. The apartments were larger than the other assisted living facilities in the area. The staff is friendly. My mother complains about the food choices and that some of the staff, especially caregivers and servers, forget to do things. My mom doesn't really need much help but has chosen to live there. The nursing staff itself is adequate. The former nursing director would say she would handle certain issues and never did. A concierge at the front desk confirmed there were numerous similar complaints. They had trouble scheduling medical contractors in the facility even though there was a script. In addition, they accommodate medical conditions that they should not be handling allowing my mother to avoid treatment. The new nursing director won't even call me back on a generic prescription ordering question that is not disclosing any private health information because my mom is her own POA. The chef once looked at my mom's leg and foot condition because my mother asked her to and she complied and gave her advice. My mom trusted the chef to give medical advice because she has family members that are in healthcare. I notified the nursing director. If I could choose facilities again, I would choose differently.

HarborChase of Plainfield was very nice. I got a tour of their assisted living facility, and the staff was very nice. The dining area was beautiful. I would have loved to move my parents there. The library and the exercise room were very nice.

UNPROFESSIONAL! - If they treat prospective residents this way, I wonder how they treat “captive” residents who have signed on the dotted line and have no choice? Saturday, Feb3, we arrive five minutes before our 3pm appointment. The receptionist greeted us and then lead us down the hall to a far back corner of the building and wait. At 3:20, an employee came over and stated that someone would we with us soon even though we had an appointment at 3pm because a walk-in came in and they were helping the walk-in first. My wife was offended because she worked hard to get the Saturday appointment as the website stated we needed to. Until that time there was no other contact and they did not even say how much longer it would take before someone meet with us - We left without being helped!

Provider Response

When I walked in HarborChase of Plainfield, I got a bad feeling. All of the patients we saw were just sitting, not happy or smiling. They looked like they didn’t want to be there. The room they showed us was too small and was like walking into a hospital room. It was just one room that could maybe fit a bed and a dresser. They had one of their staff pushing a beach ball back and forth with the residents who didn’t look happy to be there.

Provider Response

What drew me to the community was the physical therapy, the memory care, and speech therapy. I thought that my wife would have the best treatment available for dementia patients. The staff is very polite, nice, and helpful. The rooms were very nice, comfortable, and spacious for her. She enjoys their food. I have never heard her say anything bad, though periodically she does come across that she didn’t care. They asked her what she prefers, and they will make it for her. Harbor Chase is a convenient place to get in.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for taking the time to rate us, Robert. We’re very happy that you chose HarborChase for your wife. We’re glad to hear that we have the services you were looking for and we appreciate the kind words about comfortable rooms, helpful service and chef-prepared food. We especially appreciate your recognition of our hard-working associates and care partners. They are dedicated to providing the very best in senior living each and every day. Again, we thank you for your review and look forward to serving you and your family for years to come.

I visited this facility

This was nice enough. Had much the same amenities as other facilities. I was not crazy about the location and the decor seemed dark. While touring, we saw a resident that seemed to be wanting attention and was having a hard time getting it. Maybe I misunderstood the situation, but that put me off for sure.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for taking the time to rate us. Although many people rave about our convenient location, we realize that it might not be ideal for everyone. We are also sorry to hear that your initial visit did not go well, but we would love to invite you back for another visit soon. We would like the opportunity to tell you more about our innovative health services, delicious dining options through our Chef’s Fare Dining Program, housekeeping services, and wealth of activities offered through our Life Enrichment Program. Again, we thank you for your thoughts and hope you come by for another visit. We would love another chance to get to know you!

I would love to have moved my mother to HarborChase of Plainfield, but it's too far away, which would've been an hour at least drive for me. It was great the minute I walked in. It had a lovely lobby, it's just so clean, and it didn't smell. I went there once, and the staff seemed to be good. The rooms were lovely, and each resident has their own bathroom, which was nice. The residents that I saw seemed happy, and the marketing person was lovely.

I really liked HarborChase except the extra charges for some services. The people were very nice. The rooms were nice as well. I have a friend whose mother is there, and I have been there a couple of times. They have a lot of activities, and they go out on tours.

I chose Harbor Chase because of its location, the workers were friendly, and it was clean. The rooms were a five-star and more economical than a lot of the places I have looked at. I had dinner with my mom there a couple of times, and the food is very good. They have a big activities directory, and I know my mom has participated in several of the activities. I like the staff. They treat her like family. Every one of them came up and greeted her, talked to her, and got to know her.

Provider Response

I liked Harbor Chase because of its newness, its staff to patient ratio, and its location. The room is carpeted; it has a refrigerator, microwave and it's a one-bedroom unit. The staff has a caring attitude, positive response time and they are knowledgeable. The menu is very good and adapted for individuals with special needs.

My father and mother-in-law moved into The Park. One of the reasons why we choose it is because it is closer to us. It is only 10 minutes from my house. It is transitional. It goes from independent, to assisting, to nursing home. The staff is wonderful. My husband loves the apartments so much he wants to move in.

The Park just recently opened and I went there for the open house. The staff is excellent. The dining room and the food was superb. They’re top-notch but I just think it is too much for my husband as he is handicapped.

I visited The Park at Plainfield and it was very nice. The amenities were really nice. The staff seemed to be friendly and the lady who ran it who talked to me was really nice. It's just out of my budget. Otherwise, if someone could afford it, I would recommend it to them.

This facility is such a home-like atmosphere and everyone I have ever met has been kind, compassionate and dedicated to the residents. They provide excellent care and they are able to do a lot for my mom. She needs a great deal of care and they do a fabulous job. The dining is excellent and activities have really come a long way. There has been new management and lots of growth. We are so happy to be here and to be part of something great. I see the real customer focus and willingness to help anyone and everyone. The managers operate with integrity and honesty in all they do and we trust the whole team. I am so glad we chose The Park and I am only more and more impressed every single day! What a blessing they have been!

Upon first arriving at The Park, the facility is clean and modern. I was greeted by a friendly receptionist and asked that I sign in. This is a smaller, more intimate, location with only 3 floors. As I walked through what seemed like a lounge and social area, I noticed that no residents were here or any other common areas. Throughout the many visits I made during my 2 week stay, this was a common occurrence. Activities were either not provided enough for the residents to bring them out into these areas, or there were not enough social locations provided. As I entered into my friends private room, that somewhat resembles an apartment, I noticed that the cleaning staff was not doing a very efficient job. Her furniture was thickly layered in dust, her floor had not been vacuumed, the bathroom toilet and shower were filthy, and her sheets had not been washed in a very long time. I interacted with several CNAs, some with more competence and patients than the others. But overall, they seemed to care about the resident's well-being. Overall, this facility could become more interactive with their residents, helping them to socialize and bring them out of their rooms. In addition, the cleaning staff needs incredible help in providing better service to the rooms of residents. The facility in general is maintained and clean, but I was appalled by the way they allowed my friends room to be.

I was very impress with the Park at Plainfield, Il. It's a brand new facility, and is just beautiful. The people my wife and I dealt with really seemed to have my father's best interest at heart, both emotionally and financially. We hope once my father sees this facility on Saturday that he will fall in love with it like we did.

My Mother is at this facility and I feel that it is good fit for her. The staff is wonderful, loving and caring and residents and families respond well to the positive manner in which the staff presents itself. They are always trying to work with each and every patient in a personal manner...really trying to get to know them in order to be more effective. The food is excellent and nutritious...served in a pretty diningroom. The creative activities are designed for enjoyment and stimulation. I would highly recommend this beautiful, clean environment.
