Assisted Living Reviews for The Grand

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
I am writing this review because I strongly feel it The Grands of Dublin has shown a great deal of lack of responsibility and not taking any interest of an issue that occurred while my father was a patient/resident there. On Sunday, September 17, 2017, I picked my father up from room 324 at The Grands and drove him to visit my mother who was a patient at another rehabilitation facility. After the visit, I drove my father back to The Grands. I made sure he was back in his room and noticed his dinner was ready and waiting on his tray/table. On the following day September, 18, I picked my father up for an appointment at The James Cancer hospital. It was then when my father let me know his electronic dentures (talking dentures) were missing. He can’t wear them while eating and has to use his regular dentures. He explained to me that he took the talking dentures out and placed them in his case before eating and laid it on his table. He then fell asleep after eating and when he woke up later, he noticed they were missing. He told his nurse early that morning that they were missing. After returning from his appointment I looked everywhere in his room for the dentures with no luck. The only thing that we strongly feel that happened, is that the dentures with case were removed and thrown away by whoever collected his food tray. The staff available then had searched the laundry and other parts of this facility and no luck. I cannot say enough about how well my father was treated during his stay at The Grands. The staff was always on top of his medication and treatments, taking great care of him and making sure his stay was comfortable and clean. I am writing this because after talking to other staff members, I had no results. On my father’s discharge date, October 20, 2017, I talked to the director about this situation who told me that he would turn this in to corporate. Since then I have left three messages with the director and not yet heard back from him. My first message was on November 6, and then on November 9 and 14. I tried calling corporate myself and all the offered prompts do not have any options to leave a voicemail, so I’m guessing you have to get lucky for someone to answer or go in person, which is hard to do while working. These dentures are very important to my father. This is his only way of communicating if he had to call 911 or talk to anyone in an emergency situation. Whatever the outcome of this situation is, I feel my messages should be recognized and returned. Just seems strange that someone is not wanting to take responsibility for this and doing a great job avoiding whatever consequences that could follow. Respectfully Tammy Dancy

The Grand is a unique environment where it seems like you are outside when you are walking down the hallways. They have storefronts that look like you are walking down a city street instead of down the hallway inside a retirement home such as the beauty salon and a chapel, and it’s got a sky roof, a general store, and an ice-cream shop. It gives you the illusion that you are outside, like cobblestone streets. It seemed very clean, and it was very new.

From all of the places I looked at, The Grand has the nicest rooms. They have a whole area where they have a movie theater and give you popcorn. They also have apothecary. They also have a deli setup were the residents can go. They have a little church as well as a little pub that was very nice. They gave out small glasses of wine. They also have program where they took people out for field trips.

This is a beautiful first class facility. It is brand new and everything is new and beautiful. They have an inside street that has shops, movie, ice cream shop, a chapel, a pub and so much more.

I am/was a resident of this facility
I just left the rehab facilities at The Grand and feel I need to share this with anyone contemplating using The Grand for the same services. Things to be made aware of, 1) IF you enter the Grand on a Friday afternoon your rehab may not begin until Monday or later, they may EVALUATE you over the weekend in Occupational Therapy (OT) and Physical Therapy (PT) and call it rehab but physical and occupational rehab in the real sense did not actually happen until Tuesday after I was admitted on Friday. 2) Make SURE you or your loved one is fully assessed immediately upon entering The Grand by their transitional team. By that I mean sit down with the Trasitional Care Coordinator, The Director of Nursing, and the Social worker. I believe after my experience they will really try to make this right and will work hard to not have your loved one fall through the cracks as I did. The number one priority being there was to receive in-patient rehabilitation services for my replaced hip making “staying ahead of my pain” my goal. Make SURE that you or your loved one is immediately placed on a pain medication schedule that ensures that will happen. Do NOT allow anyone to just say, “just tell us when you need it.” You are in no condition two days after major surgery to do that even if you think you are. There needs to be a 4-6 hour regiment that continues 24/7 that ensures that you will be prepared for your pain, treated, and then physically prepared for therapy. It does you OR the therapist zero good when you are receiving your pain meds, as I was, 10 minutes before receiving therapy. Also, while being put in the ICE room to ice down my hip after therapy feels good, I consider that not part of my therapy and would much rather my limited time with my therapist be spent strengthening my hip than me sitting alone icing it. 3) You have a call button for a reason. When you push it...time the response, if it goes beyond 5 minutes for the aide OR the nurse dial 800 (if you can reach the phone) and have them page the nurse to your room. If you STILL have a problem getting someone (like maybe a nurse that does not respond for 1 hour and 24 minutes) either leave the next day as I did OR dial 800 in the morning and ask for The Administratior who I believe absolutely wants/needs to know what is happening in the facility. 4) The food....improved once the director of foods spoke with me and found out that mine was coming stone cold causing my husband to pick up food and bring in several days in a row. 5) If your room does not get swept or trash emptied each day during their housecleaning, call 800 and request it and finally while I was not there for the nursing care as much as I was for the therapeutic care, the nurses are who you see the most frequent while you are there. Beyond your pain level which they do ask, Make SURE that they check your incision EVERY day and may have to rebandage it, and that your vitals are taken a least once every day. For whatever reason I carried a low grade fever the first several days I was there and that needed to be monitored. I WILL say that one of The Grand’s most redeeming features are that many of their nurses are very caring. I am an active 63 year old female that just wanted a head start on therapy and wanted to be close to my daughters’ homes in Dublin. While I, like everyone who has reviewed The Grand found this place to be beautiful and the concept noteworthy. The actual PRACTICES were found well below expectations. What concerns me most is I KNOW that I wasn’t the only one receiving this same care but many older people are hesitant to give a review for various reasons.
