Memory Care Reviews for Porter Place

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

I thank God every day that we found Porter Place! The care my father receives is exceptional! The staff I cannot say enough great things about. From the nurses, cooks, maintenance to the office staff feels like family.

I like the facility and some of the RN's are great, 1 not so much. The facility in Tinley Park, Il lacks enough staff, and the director doesn't seem to understand the demented mind, everything seems to be 'by the book' without looking into why a resident does what they do. Also, management doesn't 'manage' the aides, they pretty much do as they please. If they had adequate staffing, and some management changes were made, the Tinley Porter Place facility could be a great place to send a loved one.
Provider Response
Dear Gabbyl: Thank you for taking the time to provide a review of Porter Place. Your feedback helps us improve the quality and service we provide to our residents and family members. I am sorry your experience was not a positive one. We are constantly striving to improve the knowledge and skills of our caregivers and management team. Our entire team recently completed an advanced 4 hour training in Alzheimer's and dementia care (in addition to our ongoing monthly training program). I would appreciate an opportunity to discuss the concerns expressed in your review. Please give me a call at your convenience.

Everybody at Porter Place seems to be nice and attentive. The facility is nice, and the room is large enough. Some of the rooms are furnished, but mom has her own furniture. What I don't like about it is that you don't have access and you have to wait to get in and out, so there's always somebody at the front desk so you can get buzzed in, and when it's time for you to leave, you have to find somebody especially if you wait after 8:00 because nobody's at the front desk after 8:00.

Questions about Porter Place

What ongoing training does the staff receive in dementia care?

Monthly staff dementia training is required and monitored by Porter Place. Each employee receives 40 hours of training prior to receiving their first assignments.

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

Our staffing is based on the number of residents each day PLUS the level of care that is needed by each resident, thus it fluctuates daily. We provide more staffing than the State of Illinois requires to meet the needs of our residents.

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

Our resident programming is very robust. Since Porter Place EXCLUSIVELY supports residents with memory loss, our programming is robust (7 days weekly) and a primary focus.

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

Initial assessments are completed prior to a resident moving to Porter Place, again several times over the next 30 day period, and also when a change in status is recognized.

What techniques does Porter Place use to support memory care residents during mealtimes?

Family style dining in a "kitchen" setting with caregivers available to encourage and assist residents.
