Nursing Home Reviews for Bethesda Dilworth

August 04, 2014

By vpbenson

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My husband is at the Bethesda Dilworth. I don't know what more they can do because these are all advanced dementia patients and they do what they can. But there really isn't a whole lot they can do for them, so the care is adequate; I don't want to complain about it. The staff is very pleasant. They do a few things but I think there are too many people. I think the staff-to-patient ratio is not really as good as it should be because things tend to get past the staff. My husband fell once during the night and I didn't learn about it until I came to see him the next day -- I don't like that very much. There was also a situation a female resident who thinks he is her husband. I know that happens a lot; it's not a bad thing, but it's gotten a little out of hand sometimes. I know you can't expect normal boundaries in this situation, but I'm thinking they should be keeping a little closer eye on that. I think that perhaps the patient-to-staff ratio should be a little better. I go in almost every day, but I don't know what would happen if I didn't. I don't know whether they'd let me know or not; there's usually not much to report. I have asked for him to be shaved more than once a week and that still hasn't happened. I don't want to be too critical because it's a very difficult situation for everybody. I'm not thrilled, but for what they charge they could shave him more than once a week. It's that kind of thing that makes me less enthusiastic. The facility is not at all homey; it's very depressing. They keep it as clean as possible given that there are some residents who lie down in the middle of the floor and so forth. I think that they are kind to them. I think they are caring but I just don't like the atmosphere. I don't like the non-responsiveness and the food is terrible.

I visited this facility

The Staff are warm and very caring but over worked. The amenities are a little run down, older. They do have a lot of activities and things for my Grandmother to do.
