Assisted Living Reviews for Traditions at Solana

July 27, 2019

By Kathleen

I visited this facility

Traditions at Solana was nice, and we were accommodated very well. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable. It was the largest of the places we visited that day, it was clean, and pleasant looking. The outside appearance and the landscaping were good. They had a lot of activities going on, they have transportation available, and a beauty shop on the premises.

Provider Response

Hi Kathleen, Thank you for your review. We appreciate the kind and encouraging words. We strive to provide a great experience when visiting and a warm and nurturing atmosphere for the residents we care for each day.

My mom moved into Traditions at Solana, and that was our favorite facility. It was very nice, and there were accommodating people that made it possible for my mom to get in there. My mom loves the food. They play bingo, crafts, and they have lots of dogs running around. The apartments are nice, small, but efficient, and well laid out.

Provider Response

Thank you for the kind review, Patricia! We work hard to meet expectations like yours, and we’re happy to hear we have done so. We appreciate the feedback and are blessed to have the opportunity to provide a nurturing atmosphere for your mother.

They did not bathe him. They did not help him change clothes. They did not take him to the dining room for meals. They promised to do all of these things. We found him huddled in his bed with feces on his sheets, on the bathroom floor, on the toilet seat and on the grab bars. But his diaper was only wet, so it had been there for awhile. They had taken away his panic button and hidden it under a washcloth on the bathroom sink. There were untouched meals in styrofoam around his room. NONE of the clothes I sent for him were used, only his pajamas. He had just a thin tshirt and sweat pants on when we picked him up and he was in his bed wrapped in his blanket. AND--he fell while there and they did not notify us or his doctor. Do not send your loved one here!

Great Community. Staff are so kind. The move-in process is seamless. This helped our family so much with moving mom in. Thank you.

Provider Response

We appreciate your positive review. We strive to meet and exceed families expectations.

In my role providing care for elderly individuals with a variety of medical issues I am often asked to make referrals to facilities like Traditions at Solana. I feel very comfortable making these types of referrals to this beautiful facility. The Executive Director has extensive experience in leadership of assisted living/memory care type units. I have the utmost confidence in her ability to administer over this facility with both the strength and compassion needed to succeed in her role. I truly wish I had known more about Traditions at Solana a few years ago when both my parents, long time residents of the north side, required a move to assisted living. I would not have hesitated to have moved them to such a great place!

Absolutely in LOVE with this building! From the breath taking outdoor appearance to the clean and vibrant interior.. a gorgeous building all around! The receptionist was so kind and friendly with us. All of the staff we passed interacted with us with warm smiles and greetings. I found the Executive Director to be extremely knowledgeable and very compassionate towards my Father and I. We were invited to stay for lunch and enjoyed a wonderful meal where we met several residents who had very good things to say about Solana! Overall great experience and my Father's top choice for Assisted Living!

This place looks great and the staff say all the right things but all is not well. Food service has been terrible since move in. Residents must raise their hand to get the attention of the ever changing staff. There are NO meals available for people with dietary restrictions. QMA's are in charge of too many patients and there is a serious shortage of staff, at all levels...except management. Medication administration is a joke and their pre-packaged meds is a mess leaving personnel to search in multiple drawers. We have no confidence in this process. The facility is a ghost town after 3:oo p.m. and if assistance is needed, good luck. Communication with management is horrible. Not only do they not seem to communicate with one another, when questioned, they manage to place blame on someone else rather than listening to our concerns. We are lucky to live close. y but what about residents who are not so fortunate. If my loved one were not so far in to dementia, we would move. They do nothing to engage residents and the small activities they do are unorganized and not presented in a way to welcome participants and help them have fun. Our perception is the staff look at this as a job and not a commitment to help aging seniors enjoy their golden years. There is a reason they have so many open rooms. The owners are in it for one reason and it is not to provide high quality care. Stay away.

Provider Response

Thanks you for providing your review, we value and appreciate all feedback. We do pride ourselves in the care and attention we provide our residents. We would appreciate your time to further discuss your concerns in person.

My loved one chose Traditions at Solana out of all the places we toured. We have not been disappointed yet, staff are gracious and kind.

Wayne, this is so positive to read! The team at Solana value and appreciate the residents and families we serve. Thank you for the feedback.

The building is absolutely beautiful but what counts most is what's inside. The staff are kind, considerate, compassionate and proactive. I would recommend to anyone searching for a place for their loved one.

Thank you so much for your kind words, I am glad your experience at Solana was positive!

Traditions at Solana is pretty good. The staff is mostly caring and helpful. My loved one has a one-bedroom with a living room, a bathroom, and a tiny kitchen. She wishes there were more fruits, vegetables, and salads instead of so much meat and potatoes, but the food is OK. Communication is not so good. The dining area is very pretty and spacious.

Traditions at Solana is affordable and a very nice facility with good, caring people. The thing that stands out most to me is the personalization. The food is just OK.

My mother has been a resident of Traditions at Salona for almost a year. Our family has been extremely happy with the care provided by the staff. Mom has moderate dementia/alz and has lots of mood swings. Some days she is not very happy, as she thinks she should be able to live on her own. I have no complaints. I feel she is safe at Traditions and getting good care.

By Mom's only Caregiver

I visited this facility

My mother is Mid-Alzheimer's and was assessed to the Assisted Living area only to be recommended to Memory Care three months after she arrived-a placement I felt she deserved upon initial assessment. I also agree with others here who feel like the staff is poorly trained and apathetic to the needs of dementia. There is no longer a Medicaid component at Traditions and we were not informed of this even though it was a plus in our search for a place for my mom. I have experience with three other assisted living places via my mother-in-law here in Indianapolis - all who have provide better care. Have had meetings with director., nursing staff and still feel there is lack of oversight. Another person commented here about Alz care and read Traditions response about a new training procedure with a meeting (family night?) but have yet to see this ??? Shame on me-looking around feel like my mom is falling through the cracks. Worry is making me ill. To the person who removed their mother I'd love to know if you found a better place. If your loved one is physically able without dementia I'd recommend Traditions, but I'd be checking in with them regularly. It is a pretty place.

I visited this facility

I also took a tour of Traditions at Solana. The place was pretty much brand-new and very clean with large rooms. They had lots of activities, but they didn't have many people; maybe that's because it was new. It was the most expensive place of all the places we visited.

I have a relative living at Solana. She is extremely happy there - likes the food and loves the employees. The nursing staff is very conscientious about her needs and so is the dining room staff. When I pass an employee in the building, I get a nice smile and a greeting. Whenever we have asked for something, be it medication, laundry or bathing, they don't put you off. What you ask for is immediately taken care of. I would highly recommend Traditions at Solana!

First of all the facility is designed to attract those of us who are placing our family in their care...don't be fooled. Most of us have family who were living back in the 40's,50's and 60's so why would the decorate it to cater to artsy type? To sell to the families that's why! It is WAY expensive and they have no experience with memory care. I put my relative initially in assisted living because the Alzheimers was progressing enough to where assistance was needed. They were aware enough to know they did NOT want to be locked in. Due to a flight risk they had a bracelet that would lock the doors when they tried to get out. After one week and two SUCCESSFUL attempts to get out, where on one attempt they had NO CLUE of their absence until a stranger brought them back, up the the memory care unit they went. Two months (only 20 days under Solana's roof) and many trips out to a pysch hospital for med adjustments they were KICKED out. This facility opened way to soon and was not prepared to handle residents who struggled adjusting to this new environment. Not to mention the bedroom was never cleaned, laundry never done and showers never taken. And I mean NEVER! So do your research first! Oh and there have been others that I found out were asked to leave. They only prefer the easy going Alzheimers patients whatever that is.

Provider Response

We appreciate your message and want you to know that the safety and health are our top priority of all our residents. Our community strives to provide a home-like environment to our residents who are challenged with various dementia diagnoses that maximizes dignity, productivity and quality of life. Admission to the program is not based solely upon diagnosis or disease stage, but is based on a variety of criteria as dictated by the Indiana State Department of Health and our Community. The decision to accept an individual to our Memory Care Program is made at the community level and is based upon the best information gathered by an interdisciplinary team (Clinical Director and General Manager) following the initial admission assessment. Continued residency in our Memory Care is based on criteria that have been set forth by our Community. On occasion, it becomes clear, based on the state criteria, that an admission acceptance may have been inappropriate or that a resident has progressed beyond the scope of care offered by our Memory Care Program. Such occurrences may warrant a resident relocation. Our community proudly works together in a team environment with residents, family, staff and physician to provide the best possible atmosphere for all residents. We welcome and promote open communication at all times. Please feel free to contact us at anytime to discuss any concerns you may have.

The reason we chose Traditions at Solana was because it's on a lake and it's got the homiest and most welcoming atmosphere. It suited my parents' needs the best. They take the residents out on the pontoon boat and they also have a golf hole out in the water. They have a little bit of different activities and the standard ones. My parents are going to be in the independent living and they're waiting for the new ones to be built.

This place is really overpriced for the poor attention to the residents' needs. Even after repeated attempts to bring issues to the attention of the staff and management, we did not see change and moved my grandmother out.

We chose Traditions at Solana for my parent because it is in a good location, it is brand new, and it is very clean. This place is large. It is just a really nice facility. It also overlooks the river. It is a surprisingly beautiful place. I was shocked because they take Medicaid also. The staff is excellent. They're very friendly and very helpful. I ate there; the food is very good. I would recommend Traditions at Solana.

My mom is in Solana. It was in the high end of nice. It is really pretty and new. It is Medicaid waiver certified. They did a really good job. The only down side is that the chef isn't all that good, but other than the food, it's doing well. We like it. There is a practitioner who is right there. We like the staff. Things have been pretty good. I highly recommend it. They have activities. They do everything you can think of. They have a theater. They do arts & crafts every day. They have an exercise room.

The place is brand new, and they only had seven or eight people in their memory care unit, so it was quiet. Traditions at Solana has got a big open day room with the TV area and the eating area. They did have assisted living, and one half of the floor is designated for memory care. It is all arranged differently. This unit opened up June 2014, so everything is brand new and very upscale looking. The locked unit opens up to the very large day room. They have a lot of facilities on the floor like a kitchen and refrigerator. They have their own tables at one end of the large room. Most of their food comes from the kitchen that makes the food for assisted living. They can still bake cookies or whatever right there. They can do stuff right there if they wanted to like cook an egg for somebody that didn't want what is served. They have a smallish table, and they sit in groups however they want to. They have individual rooms, and you have to bring your own furniture. Each room has a very large window that overlooks one side of the building. Once in a while, the TV might be loud because people can't hear that well, but in general it is a calm and quiet place.

We chose Traditions at Solana for my brother because it is so very nice. It has a very nice location, and the facility itself is extremely nice. It's some place I wouldn't mind living myself. Actually my brother has also toured other facilities, and it is the best choice for him. The staff is extremely pleasant and professional. They were doing whatever they needed to do to make sure our needs were met. They have a movie theater -- where they watch a movie once a week -- and a lounge area where they have a happy hour once or twice a week. They even take them shopping. Some boating is possible around the facility. They are planning to get some kind of a boat because they have a river behind them and a lake in the front. Solano is a brand new facility who just opened last June. It is well built over the course of probably the past year and a half. They have all the bells and whistles.

I visited this facility

Traditions at Solana was very beautiful, we were welcomed, and we were given a meal. We met some other people on the staff, and we got to see an apartment that seemed to be open at that time. I was very impressed with the place, and the food was excellent. We saw the library. They brought in grade-school children to interact with some of the residents.

Provider Response

We appreciate the kind feedback. Thank you for visiting Solana. It is wonderful to hear you had a great visit. We hope to see you again soon!

I toured Traditions at Solana. Their pricing was more than I could afford. The staff was very nice, they showed me a one-bedroom, a two-bedroom, and they showed me the library and exercise room.
