Assisted Living Reviews for Fenwick Landing Senior Care Community

January 25, 2019

By M Labrie

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

The staff is excellent!!! Every person that works here is very kind and professional. The entire facility is sparkling clean. There are many daily activities bingo, trivia, baking and gardening. The overall attitude is consistent and always positive. My Dad started in Fenwick Landing’s Adult Day Center. Dad is now a full time resident at Fenwick’s Assisted Living. I am so happy that my family chose Fenwick for our Dad. The quality of care (personal, medical) my Dad receives everyday is outstanding. The residents eat home cooked meals in the dining room everyday. There is nothing institutional about the food or the decor. It feels and looks like home.The staff always addresses any questions or concerns I have promptly. I am always included in any decisions regarding my Dad. Fenwick Landing is always honest about any additional costs that may come up. Fenwick Landing is Waldorf’s best kept secret!!!

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

Saw at least 2 staff members with head down on mobile devices, braiding their own hair.One resident asked for medicine, stating she was in pain, had to ask three times before she was attended to. I visited this facility for almost 2 hours, one resident was not moved, offered a snack, water or companionship the entire time. While great music was playing consistently in the background, staff seemed to be entertaining each other more than residents. The dining area is neat and well laid out however over shadowed by the smell of urine and or feces. I will not reccommend anyone I care about to this facility and it is only my opinion that more experienced staff are hired here for a better outcome and look to visitors. When I left, dinner was being served on time, the cook seemed more socially interactive more than staff placed on the floor for resident care. The rooms are small but, are appropriate for the population. I would encourage more hospital type beds for this facility, one bed located on dagsboro unit was lower than my knee cap. Beautiful waterfall located on premises outside, l would recommend staff take smoke breaks in their vehicles or in the back of facility. Before I signed out I felt I had to make sure my loved one was you later as it was not offered during my entire stay.

I visited this facility

The rooms at Fenwick Landing Senior Care Community were very small. It was clean and had a nice smell, and the people were friendly.

About Fenwick Landing Senior Care Community

fenwicklandingseniorcare.com

We learned long ago that smaller is better when it comes to really knowing our residents and their families. Fenwick Landing Senior Care Community is comprised of two side-by-side residential homes. With only 15 residents in each of our homes, we are able to provide each person with the individualized, resident-centered, attention they deserve.

People come to us for a variety of reasons. Some have health needs that require monitoring, some have dementia, and others require physical help with their daily care. For this reason, we have designed our homes to provide a wide range of care options. One of our homes caters to individuals requiring mild to moderate assistance, while our advanced care home is designed for those requiring more intensive services such as memory care, so that nursing home placement may not be necessary.

Our approach is oriented towards comfort - physical, emotional, and spiritual, incorporating each resident's life history and life choices into our care model.

Your loved one will experience the feeling of a safe and comfortable home-away-from-home at Fenwick Landing. Since many older adults have difficulty with climbing stairs, each our homes are on one level. This design also makes it easier for individuals with cognitive impairments to find their way and allows easy access to our secured backyard.

Private bedrooms are the norm for all of our residents providing each of them with personal space. Each home also has a common living room, cozy fireplace, dining room, and a peaceful lounge where residents can relax, meditate, or spend time with family and friends.

Our enclosed courtyards offer our residents a safe, comfortable place to enjoy the outdoors. We believe that sunshine and fresh air are the best medicine!

Our comprehensive activity program encourages socialization and companionship, offering a wide variety of mentally and physically stimulating programs. We also go out on a weekly lunch outing and participate in other community events.

The Dagsboro residential home accommodates residents with mild-to-moderate care needs. Although Dagsboro residents are somewhat independent concerning their daily needs, they do require some supervision and assistance with certain tasks. Our skilled caregivers are here to assist with what is needed, but to also respect each resident's wishes.

The Dunroven home is designed for individuals with higher care needs such as those with advanced dementia or other chronic health conditions. Our caregivers in this home are prepared to assist our residents with care in any way needed, including at more advanced levels, such as transferring or feeding. The management office is located in this building, with a fully visible view of the common areas, so that residents can be observed more closely.
