I am a friend or relative of a resident

Tonawanda Manor is excellent. I like it very much. My father actually lived there for a month, and his brother and sister-in-law are there. The rooms are big and clean, and there are lots of activities to enojoy. It is a beautiful place, and the people are very nice. The food is very good. It is definitely a five out of five.

We found Tonawanda Manor for my mother. The food is excellent. They probably have too much for them, but at least the food is excellent. Every night, they have some sort of activities, like music and crafts, so they do a lot and they really keep them active. The rooms are very roomy, and they all have windows. They have pull cords in every room, e.g., in the bathroom, the sitting room and the bed area. They have a wonderful staff. The staff has designed what they call emergency pull cords. My mother the other day couldn't get her television on, so she had to pull the cord, and they said, 'Oh that's fine.' I mean it is not an emergency thing, so it works out well. We can actually have the meal with the residents. Also they have activities everyday, sometimes twice a day. They have bingo, board games, cards, crafts, and movies. At least twice a week, they have a group or a single person coming in with some sort of musical instrument. The place is very secure. All the doors are coded to get in and coded to get out. They have plenty of staff. What they could improve on is probably a little better parking lot because the parking lot is very small.

Both of my parents lived here until Dad passed last fall. Mom still lives there. Have also had two other relatives live there in the past. Everyone was completely satisfied with the care received at the Manor. The staff is helpful, caring, and supportive. The residents rooms, common rooms, and grounds are well maintained and pleasant. The only thing that prevents me from giving a five is the food, which is rather bland, institutional food. My mother has some dementia and right now they are managing her care well, but as her memory worsens we are considering a skilled setting with a memory care unit. We are just so afraid that she could wander.

Questions about Elderwood Assisted Living at Tonawanda

Describe the overall population of assisted living residents at Elderwood Assisted Living at Tonawanda. What is their average age? What are their favorite things to do?

Residents at our community are at least 65 years of age or older. We have residents that are anywhere from 65 to 101, and they all have in common the fact that they are independent with getting around the community. Some residents may walk, use a cane or walker, or propel themselves in a wheelchair, but everyone is able to get around on their own. Some residents need more help than others, and that's okay - we work to provide the care level that each resident needs.

What programs or activities does Elderwood Assisted Living at Tonawanda offer to enrich residents' well-being?

Here at Elderwood Assisted Living at Tonawanda, we have a vibrant activities schedule. From card games, to bingo, to movies, to arts and crafts, there is always something to do. Even if there isn't a current scheduled activity, it is common to find residents working on puzzles in common areas, taking walks with friends or lounging on the couch watching T.V. together. During the warmer months, residents love spending time in our outdoor areas, soaking in the sun. Outings are on of the most popular activities within our community. A few times a month, a small group of residents will take a van to their favorite places - Ted's and Anderson's for some good eats, the Dollar Store for essentials, or The Christmas Tree Shop for some shopping.

What places are near Elderwood Assisted Living at Tonawanda or within walking distance for assisted living residents to enjoy?

There isn't walkable access to stores near our community, but the Tonawanda Senior Center is less than a half mile away, as is Sheridan Park and the golf course. Residents are able to have their own cars and park in our lot free of charge. The Village of Kenmore is just a few minutes away and provides tons of shopping in adorable boutiques and specialty restaurants and stores.

What transportation services does Elderwood Assisted Living at Tonawanda offer to assisted living residents?

Elderwood Assisted Living at Tonawanda does not provide transportation, but we can help to arrange it. Our social worker can help make sure you have a ride that will get you where you need to go. Our activities van is reserved for activity outings only.

What makes the chef or dining program at Elderwood Assisted Living at Tonawanda exceptional? What kind of menu can assisted living residents expect?

Our chef has been serving up meals in our community for nearly 20 years - meaning, she knows exactly what the residents love. Residents will choose their menus a week in advance and there are always at least two main options for each meal. There are always other options, too, such as simpler sandwiches, salads and soups. Lunch is our larger meal for the day, with dinner being a bit smaller. Everything is homemade - from the donuts, to the soups, to the fresh salads, it's all made with love. It's a pretty good sign when our staff can't wait to see what's for lunch each day, too.

What safety features or security measures does Elderwood Assisted Living at Tonawanda offer to assisted living residents?

Elderwood Assisted Living at Tonawanda is equipped with a brand new call bell system installed in 2020. In addition to traditional call bells near every bed, in every bathroom and all common areas, each resident is issued a personal pendent that they can press in an emergency. Any emergency calls are routed directly to our staff for immediate assistance.

How does Elderwood Assisted Living at Tonawanda keep residents' families informed about their loved ones?

Beginning in 2019, families will be invited to a family forum within six month's of their loved one's arrival. This is a private event for families, but an open forum for families to ask questions and express concerns. As always, we encourage families to keep an open line of communication with our staff at all times - from our nurses and aides, to admissions, to social work, to our business office, someone is always available to address your concerns. Monthly e-mails are sent out to interested families about upcoming events and activities.
