Nursing Home Reviews for Tockwotton on the Waterfront

I visited this facility

I have been a resident here at Tockwotton for two years and I am very happy I made the decision to come here. The staff here is absolutely the best. Our executive director and assistants, office staff, nursing, dietary, housekeeping, maintenance and activities all help to make our home happy and safe. Our rooms are cleaned and beds changed weekly. Repairs are done immediately. Dietary serves us delicious meals of our choice. Activities are fun and many times our staff join right in with us as when we had our senior olympics the first week in August. We have concerts and shows in-house as well as attending them outside. Colt State Park picnic will be coming up as well as a trip to a casino this month. Every day is full of many activities that we may choose to do. Crafts, art, music, games of all kinds, crosswords, trivia, floral design, reiki, bell choir, tai chi, chair chi, and movies. We have speakers come in for spiritual, educational and health lectures. Wednesday evenings we exchange good night lights with the children from Hasbro Children's Hospital. As you can see our days are full with many interesting things to do and wonderful people here to share our good times with. Claudette Moniz

I had the pleasure of working with Carrie in the admissions team. She was kind, soft and took her time to listen to my needs. We toured, I had lunch with some of the residents and was able to meet with the staff. I was quiet impressed with the warm nature from everyone I met. I am currently a resident now at Tockwotton and am so pleased with my decision. They ALL have become my family!

It is like being at home, get up when you want to, eat breakfast when you want to. It isn't like being in an institution, culture change. Staff are the nicest, most caring people I have every met, they cater to every wish

I was atTockwotton and there was only one nurse practitioner that finally was able to help me medically after coughing for seven days Clarise was my savior. Dietary I found careless and incompetent following diet. Was very glad to go home.

By feeling like a terrible daughter

I am a friend or relative of resident

if all that mattered were the beautiful window treatments and light fixtures, this would be the place. however, i've spent quite some time there in the last 10 days with my mother and i have to say i am afraid to go home at night and leave her alone. The nurses have been okay but the quality of the cnas is terrible. my mother has been left for hours, with no call button because they "forget " to put it back in her reach (broken hip and leg,bedridden) They are terribly rough with moving her- she is unbearable pain- and one CNA had the nerve to complain about her own bad back. Classless to say the least. My mother also heard them calling her derogatory names in the hallway . Terribly disappointed. wish i had done more research. Please don't be foo]ed by the private rooms and the building, the care is not on the same level . Not even close

Tockwotton home is a very deceiving place, it is absolutely beautiful on the oitside as wwll as in, but once you realize what goes on in the inside and how understaffed u will see it all. There is never a nurse when needed or always on the other side. Know respect for there workers which makes the workers miserable and unappreciated

I am a daughter of someone who recently stayed at Tockwotton after a knee replacement. My mother didn't stay long, but I hope this review will help others who are evaluating facilities. Overall, I would say the facility looks great on the outside, but it is rather thin on the quality of care. The biggest issue is there is not enough help. Luckily my mother didn't need a lot of help but it would make me think twice for future needs. I believe there were only 2 aides for the entire floor. When I was there and my mother needed assistance to go to the bathroom after surgery, the aid never came 3 out of 4 times. There is no intercom or central switch board, so how do they know if it is an emergency or not? I would suggest to management they figure out a way to measure this proactively because at this point, there is no feedback loop to measure if patients calls are getting answered or not. My mother called once when she was in the bathroom and it wasn't an emergency, but they didn't come for 1/2 hour. The aids are the kitchen help so that makes it very difficult during meal time when they are delivering meals, but also doing dishes and helping people in their rooms. I heard people crying from their rooms asking for help while I was there which didn't make me feel good. The rooms are very nice and spacious. The facility is new and seemed very clean. The rehab staff was fantastic and gave my mother great support and a lot of dedicated time 7 days/week. I was impressed with that. I also had an issue with the Doctor on staff who is only there for a short period of time but was not reachable by the nursing staff and had not okayed a course of treatment with my mother's surgeon. I had to escalate and it was not easy to get someone to help. I think if the person doesn't need medical help or help in general it is a good place. The staff were all very nice to my mother but the management needs to increase the quality of care.

    ALZ Description

    This is Memory Care reimagined. This is The Courtyard Memory Care at Tockwotton on the Waterfront. As an assisted living residence specializing in care for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory loss, The Courtyard provides a safe and nurturing environment where highly trained caregivers focus on what is meaningful to each resident. Priority one is getting to know the resident and their family. Understanding your loved one—appreciating their likes and dislikes and knowing how best to maintain their well-being and peace of mind—allows us to create experiences that will foster positive emotions throughout their day.

    The cognitive changes brought on by memory loss can cause a great deal of anxiety or stress. Something quite familiar can suddenly feel unfamiliar. That is why our surroundings have been designed to feel just like home. Residents reside in private studio apartments. We encourage families to fill the space with the resident’s favorite possessions or pictures. Built in a circular fashion, The Courtyard minimizes opportunities for confusion and agitation, while enhancing a sense of stability and calm. Central to life here is our beautifully landscaped and enclosed courtyard with an herb and cutting garden. Most of the apartments feature either courtyard or waterfront views.

    The safety and contentment of each resident is a full time commitment at The Courtyard. The team approach of our highly trained staff ensures 24-hour care is consistent and compassionate. To that end, our commitment to care does not stop with the resident. We hold a special place in our hearts for family members struggling to understand the intricacies of Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments.
