Assisted Living Reviews for Deer Meadows Retirement Community

I visited this facility

Deer Meadows has not gone through extensive remodeling and was just taken over by a new company. The way that it was being run was kind of restrictive, and I would not want to live there. There were a lot of different kinds of rooms, and you could enlarge a room by taking two rooms and putting them together to make one, long apartment, and that was very nice. The other rooms ranged from comfortably small to maybe a little too small. I did not get the sense that it was entirely a happy retirement community.

Not a good place my family. No communication, DON wasn't nice, don't know how to treat patient or staff.

We were on a real tight budget, and Deer Meadows worked out a budget that we can afford. They travel to the local stores, and they take them out to a movie, but there's not as much activity as I thought there's going to be. My mom goes to bingo twice a week, and my dad plays cards once a week. I feel that they're safe there. The staff seems to be on top of things, but they can do more things to make them more active, and someone needs to take a hold of the activities per se and enhance it.

Facility was unkempt. Dietary was sub-standard and the meal was inappropriate for my father's phyical condition. TV was broken in his room. All in all I would stay way

My father was a short term resident at Deer Meadows. Our family could not ask for a better outcome for the care he received. The nursing staff were attentive to all his needs. The Rehab Department was excellent. My father did return once again after a hospital stay and again our family was very pleased his care. The facility is very clean and bright. I would recommend Deer Meadows for the excellent nursing care they provide.

Nursing Home Reviews for Deer Meadows Retirement Community

My grandfather was sent to this nursing home after an almost 3 week hospital stay because of a fall. He was healing and doing pretty well. We all knew and had accepted that he would not be the same strong man he was before the accident, but he would live. He passed away this past Tuesday evening because of the horrible care the staff at deer meadows provided. They inserted his catheter wrong and neglected to check on him for God only knows how long. His bladder filled with urine to the point where his stomach became distended. He was rushed to the hospital where he died on Tuesday. The doctors at the hospital told us the catheter was coiled and hadn't even been inserted in the bladder. We trusted that the staff at deer meadows would take care of him as they would take care of their own family members. Also, two women who had been sitting in the hallway in wheel chairs at 11:30am on Sunday, were still in the same positions at 7:30pm Sunday night. Unbelievable and extremely heartbreaking.

The physical plant is well maintained. The decor is rich and elegant. The nursing staff and administration are well trained and caring. The residents are treated with respect. The facility doesn't have the institutional feel that many others have. The place really felt like your own home. They are equipped to provide a wide range of care based on the needs of the individual resident.

The apartment section of Deer Meadow's is beautiful, the apartment are well laid out and spaceous. The building is kept very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They have many activities for the residents to take part in, from bingo to casino trips. The location is perfect, it is very close to Nazareth hospital, they also have doctor's on staff in the building for resident to visit with. A full hair salon, a chapel, and a gift shop a game room, this building has just about everything you could want.
