My father had to have his gall bladder removed October 2016.
His doctor recommended that he go into a skilled nursing facility for rehabilitation/therapy (Sniff).
Being that his lower extremities were weak!
I sent him to a " SUPPOSEDLY SKILLED FACILITY" in Alvin!
He was there for approximately 40 days!
Prior to surgery he was very independent, could walk on his own,and truly loved the outdoors & would walk a mile daily, dress himself, shower and use the restroom! When he came out of this facility in Alvin he was very "Dependant"
They failed him miserably! He now wears diapers and I change them, shower him, get him dressed, assist him on getting out of bed or chair, basically he can no longer do ANYTHING BY HIMSELF!
It is heart breaking to see my 73 year old father that was once full of life & spunk spiral down to where he is now!
He just had another surgery, which his doctor (New Doctor) if recommending that he go into a skilled nursing facility for physical therapy!
Someone highly recommend Baywind Village, was told they had a "5" star rating!
I spoke with Beth and met with her that same day for a tour of the facility!
Wow! I was so impressed, the "5" star rating DOES NOT even compare! If there were a "100" star rating, that's what I would give them!
As I drove between the BEAUTIFUL trees and land scaping, I could see their BEAUTIFUL Christmas tree all lit up and sparkling! As I entered I was greeted by a very well dressed, nice employee, I then met with Beth!
From the moment I spoke with her on the telephone and meeting her I felt in my heart that this is where my father was meant to be and have his therapy!
Beth listened to me all of my concerns and horrible past experience with the facility in Alvin. She answered all of my questions and went over all of their policies, activities, insurance and billing questions and answeres!
She then gave me the "Grand Tour" !
WOW! The entire facility was RATHER IMMACULATE and coming from a person that is "OCD" about cleanliness!
It had such a "CLEAN & REFRESHING" smell down every hall & every room! There was not even a fuzz ball or lint on the carpet, the floors were shinning! The house keeping employees do a PHENOMENAL job! The decor throughout was absolutely gorgeous!
The Christmas trees throughout the facility looked as though they were decorated by professional decorators and came out of the Better Homes and Gardens magazine , however, the were decorated by the Baywind Village staff!
I was always taught growing up that you do your very best at any or everything you do at school, church or on your job, it doesn't matter how small or large the task may be, your ability, actions and words represent who you are as a person! Touring this place and meeting some of the administration staff, receptionist, therapist and nurses, they make you feel welcomed! From the moment you walk in the door, you do NOT feel like your at a skilled nursing facility!
The private and semi private rooms are spacious, cozy and inviting!
They have a private dining area that has an eight to ten chair dinning table with a georgous Chandler above. You can reserve it for family breakfast, lunch or dinner with your loved one/ones!
Their regular dining area is spacious!
Their physical therapy rooms are spacious with state of the art equipment!
They have daily and hourly fun activities for the residents!
I'm so relieved now, that Baywind Village will be my father's home while he is under going physical therapy there!
I will add an update during and after his treatment there!
Wishing Everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year!
May God Bless You All & Our Country!
