Assisted Living Reviews for Wingate Residences on the East Side

September 17, 2014

By SarahR

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My father moved in to his apartment at EPOCH around mid-May 2014, after an extended time in a nursing facility. He was eager to have a little more independence after the restrictions of nursing care, but he was quite frail and my brothers and I knew the transition might be too much of a challenge after the comprehensive care of a nursing facility, but we wanted to honor his wishes for a better quality of life. Beth was particularly helpful in answering all of our questions and supporting our efforts to bring Sam to Epoch. Right away, we all loved the physical space of the EPOCH facility; the pretty, open, common rooms, the spacious apartment, and the beautiful sunny patio with the view of the river. We also always felt so welcomed by everyone, the women at the front desk, the kitchen and dining room staff, housekeepers, nurses, physical therapy folks - everyone seemed so gracious, helpful, and genuinely invested in helping my father have a good experience. The staff were always available and attentive to my father's considerable needs (and sometimes considerable demands), and they seem to go out of their way to make sure his apartment was clean, that he made it to meals, and that he was clean and ready for each day. We also took such comfort in Linda's firm, caring expertise in overseeing my father’s condition. My Dad had a lovely, but brief time at Epoch, and sadly, after two good months, he died peacefully of congestive heart failure. In his last days, we were impressed by how often members of Epoch staff would come by to express their heartfelt affection for my father and concern for us in this difficult time.
