Assisted Living Reviews for The Waterford at West Bend

I visited this facility

The Waterford at West Bend seemed pretty nice, but they didn't have enough for the older guys to do. The women were busy, and the guys were sitting in the dark somewhere. The dining area seemed pretty nice. It seemed like the people were pretty nice.

Both men and women call our community home. Their ages vary from 65 to 100+. They love the outdoors and like to sit on our patio on a nice day, or watch our indoor birds at the aviary in the winter. They like to spend time together playing games, listening to music, getting caught up on current events or just getting to know each other.

What makes the chef or dining program at The Waterford at West Bend exceptional? What kind of menu can assisted living residents expect?

The menus at the Waterford change with each season. We serve more soups and heavier meals during the winter months and lighter meals with fresh fruits and veggies during the spring and summer months when they are in season.

Who assesses residents' health and cognitive functioning? How often is that assessment repeated?

Each resident's physician is kept up to date with any changes. The team watches for any changes and promptly reports them to each person who is a part of caring for that resident including the family. The resident's personal physician can complete a cognitive exam so that you have an idea on how early or late your loved one may be in the memory loss continuum.

What techniques does The Waterford at West Bend use to support memory care residents during mealtimes?

The staff spend 1:1 time with residents who need special attention to ensure they get the proper nutrition at meal times. We can also help to physically assist a resident who may struggle to use a utensil to eat on their own. We provide lots of verbal encouragement as needed too. We can also prepare food with different textures, consistencies or even cut the meal up into bite sized pieces. Sometimes residents are most successful when they eat with their hands for finger foods which is OK. Everyone's needs are different and being different is something to celebrate. It's important to meet each resident where they are at, and not worry about fitting in or doing something how we want them to.

We are not affiliated with a medical system as we allow residents to choose their preference for care.

We will try to direct you to services if we think you or your loved one would benefit from some extra services and attention.
