Assisted Living Reviews for Pecan Point

November 14, 2014

I am a friend or relative of resident

My Mother has lived at Pecan Point for over 5+ years now, recently she has transitioned over into the Memory Care Unit. Overall the place is very pretty and people are very nice. But it does have its downfalls as any place else. The turnover rate is constant with Care partners. They are understaffed especially in Memory Care. (in my opinion). The Food is 1STAR level & that is being generous. Although there have been several wonderful chefs there in the past. just not lately. The Veteren Care Partners are always on their feet working hard and smiling. Its very obvious to pick them out. The Activity Director is amazing! I have hope for Pecan Point. They have new management there now, and change is good. Mom is supposed to be watched a little closer in Memory care but she has fallen twice since she has been there. And we have found her laying in her own feces several times during the day, because she was unable to change or clean herself from her fall injury. Yet, this is the time of the day they are staffed with the most people….Not blaming anyone in particular, just think there should be more Care partners. I figure its as good as any other assisted living place out there. Mom is happy. Daughter is frustrated.

I visited this facility

My experience with this assisted living provider has always been very pleasant. I enjoy visiting this facility due to the fact that the staff are extremely knowledgable as well as caring. The atmosphere is very positive! Pecan Point offers many ammenities such as activities, family dining, transportation, festivities, ice cream socials, interactive dancing when the local two steppers come, laundry care, meal delivery from kitchen, etc. There are way too many to list! The facility itself is kept in very good shape. Upon walking in the door you are welcomed with a clean aroma. Decor is quite elegant yet tasteful! I applaud them on their warm smile and loving demeanor as it makes visiting Pecan Point such a pleasure! I cannot attest to any negative feedback as I have never recieved any negativity by any staff member nor have I felt in a negative way when coming to this facility! I highly recommend this facility to any senior looking for an assisted living as well as a family member who is in search of a great home for their loved ones!
