I visited this facility

It seemed really great at the facility and the people were very nice. I wasn't really sure what to think of the facility as a whole, but I liked it a lot from what i saw. The people there seemed quite happy and the food looked great. It was a very good facility.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Harbor View Assisted Living is an apartment-style complex in the Sheepshead Bay section of Brooklyn, New York catering to senior citizens who need a little extra help with the activities of daily living. It is close to the bay and many of the apartments have a view of the water from the windows, which is one of the nicer features about these units. I was a frequent visitor to Harbor View when I lived in New York, as several of my former neighbors ended up living there after they could no longer stay on their own.Harbor View offers the basic services that you would expect to find at any assisted living facility, which includes help with dressing, bathing, medication management, transferring and toileting. The residents also get three well-balanced meals a day, activities and transportation to medical appointments. Some physicians do come to Harbor View, so it isn't always necessary to leave the premises. The food is not very fancy and there isn't a large variety, but they do provide Kosher meals for the residents of the Jewish faith. Most of the meals are prepared with very little seasoning or salt, so it does taste a little bland if you are used to more robust flavors.Since Harbor View is located in the metropolitan New York area, it is very expensive for anyone choosing to live there. And while you do get a nice, clean room, it is extremely small and may present a problem to anyone who is moving there from a larger apartment or house. You are not able to fit a double or queen bed in most of the apartments and those in wheelchairs have to be creative in the type of furniture they decide to bring. This is not a criticism as much as a cautionary comment. The rooms are clean and simple and it is in a nice neighborhood. It is close to Coney Island Hospital, so healthcare is pretty accessible.Most of the residents seem clean and well-cared for, but many of them are depressed. There are auxiliary services available (for an extra fee) that includes counseling and psychiatric services. My personal opinion is the residents would be well served by arranging for more activities that involved interaction with outside groups.Harbor View is one of the better assisted living facilities in Brooklyn, and if you do have to relocate to one, this should be on your list to check out.

I visited this facility

Harbor View is located in the heart of Sheepshead Bay. It faces the water as well as the Belt Parkway. In my opinion this facility is a bit on the dreary side. I was not pleased with the administration. I found that the director seemed somewhat annoyed when having to answer the many questions I had. I did not get a warm feeling at all. They are the only assisted living in brooklyn that accepts Medicaid, so I was hoping that it would be a place I would feel comfortable leaving my loved one. The other major concern I had with this facility is the fact that it is so close to the highway. My fear was that my loved one who suffered from dementia would wander outside, as the security did not seem to sound. I would not reccomend this facility.

I visited this facility

I visited this facility with a friend whose grandmother is living in. It was my first time to visit such place and I was impressed with everything that I saw there. I had always have a negative feeling towards nursing home and I thought this one will be the same. I was wrong, it was probably the best place for an elderly person to be. Starting with the staff, they were very welcoming and helpful; one of them walked us my friend's grandmother's room. The room was a nice size with breathtaking view. The facility also provides personal assistance to its residents from bathing to legal counseling. Most importantly, it has full healthcare that the residents can use anytime. Other than those facilities that they offer, I think it is crucial to see that these elderly people are comfortable and healthy as they are being taken care of, and they have friends around them as company.
