Customer Reviews

Open and inviting facility

My Mother-In-Law is very happy here. It’s a very open facility and it feels really inviting. All of the staff members that I have met are really nice and if my In-Law has a problem it is dealt with quickly. For activities, they offer things like bingo, parties, Wii bowling, church services, and live entertainment. I would recommend this facility to other families.

Superb! I'd rate them at 100 stars if I could

There is no way I can say enough nice things about the folks at Bentley. The facility is lovely, but it is the staff that make Bentley the unique place it is. They are professional, experienced, and (best of all) genuinely kind. My 92-year-old mother lived there during the last year of her life (she moved from a very new, very expensive, and pretty atrocious facility just outside of Athens where she most decidedly was not thriving), and the care she received in Bentley's Memory Care wing was absolutely first-rate. This summer she went into hospice and passed away at Bentley, and then too the whole staff and administration made a wrenching time far less difficult than it would have been had it not been for the staff's and administration's professionalism as well as their kindness and care. (Executive director [Removed] and Memory Care wing nurse [Removed], in particular, went *far* above and beyond what their jobs required; their compassion and generosity of spirit was truly humbling and overwhelming.) Suffice it to say that I recommend Bentley, with enthusiasm and deep gratitude, to anyone who loves their parents and wants them to receive exceptional care.

A tour for care

We toured this community for care. We liked the environment when we arrived. The staff director was not available at the time of the tour. The community was clean and the variety of the menu was appealing. They have nice activities for the residents. We would suggest families to this community to confirm the value of this community

Care for a loved one.

I like this community for the staff for they are good and are attentive. The food is good and they offer aa good variety. We knew from others that this was a good community for the care of a loved one.

Very Nice But Too Far

I had talked with this community over the phone. They were all very nice and provided me with answers I needed. I decided that they were too far for the family when visiting our mom.

The Change Has Been Good

The care has got a lot better since I let the staff care for my husband. I had to give him some time to transition better. It makes me happy to see them shower and shave him. I do communicate with the staff daily and they give me their report. My husband has gained weight from the meals that he enjoys to eat. He likes green and chicken. The community is clean but I have asked them to air out his room due to the odor that lingers. Everybody is nice and they understand what I want to see for my husband. He is comfortable with all the staff now and they cooperate well.

A Nice Experience For My Father Here

It was nice experience for my father here at this community. He is now back home, but we were pleased with all they did for us. It is a nice and clean community, they do a good job with the cleanliness. The staff was very kind and friendly. This is a lovely community and I would recommend it.

Caring facility

Very caring staff and wonderful facility. They keep the residents involved and interacting with others. My family member has dementia and is adjusting well and they know just how to work with her so that she feels comfortable being there

what you see isnt what they get

RAs and CNAs are fantastic although the team as a whole has a lot of miscommunication. From the medtechs to RAs. The management is rude uncaring and understaffed. Other residents have told me and my mother that the house keeping does not clean their rooms or the halls, upper level management does not know the residents by name/face and they do not speak when walking by. Management seem money hungry and only show you the rooms that they fix up. You do not see the residents rooms that are not fixed up for you to see. Activities directors do nothing for the residents in memory care they never take them outside there are only 3-4 residents who really get to go outside from memory care and activities is painting nails and watching movies up there. After hearing what my mother tells me and really listening in it sounds like nothing really gets taken care of. Will be moving her out. This place really needs to get shut down. The new LPN clearly is not happy to be at work dresses very unprofessional. Acts very unprofessional. Unappreciative of staff as well. Terrible place. Please do not move your family in here.

don't waste your money.

This place is very understaffed . money hungry business residents don't get the care they pay for. The house keeping don't clean like they should,residents bathrooms are nasty. Over all this place is a joke!!!

My Loved One really Likes It

I really can not think of what to say. I have been very pleased with Bentley Assisted living so far. My loved one has been there for little over a month and she really likes it. They take good care of her.

Clean and happy community

This is a very clean and happy community. Everything has been going great. Everything is excellent. The value is excellent as well. My loved one is very happy with the Bentley Assisted Living at Northminster. It is a nice place for a reasonable price. I would highly recommend this place if you are in the Jefferson, GA area. We are just very pleased. 5 stars!

Administration Lies

The care staff at Bentley is wonderful. Unfortunately, [removed]. We were told that my mother, who has Alzheimer's and congestive heart failure, could remain at Bentley until she died as long as she did not need skilled nursing care.
Mother has lived there for two years, and she knows and loves the staff. She is in her fifth month of hospice care. The administration at Bentley has now told us that they can no longer care for Mother. They have given us 30 days to move her out. She will never recognize the staff at a new facility or recognize the facility itself. Moving her at this point is unnecessarily cruel.

Bennett Review

Very nice place with really good people.

Seemed like a nice place

We toured this community when we were looking into care options for our loved one. I thought Bentley Assisted Living seemed like a very nice place overall. The staff we spoke with were friendly, and I really liked the room setup here. One thing we were slightly disappointed in is that they did not have a secure outdoor area for their memory care patients, and my loved one loves to be able to sit outside.

Friendly staff and good food

They've doing an excellent job at Bentley Assisted Living! The people here are extremely caring and nice, and the place just has a comfortable homey atmosphere. They also do a great job with the food, I've heard nothing but good things about it!

Excellent memory care!

We've been very pleased with how things have gone with Bentley Assisted Living so far! It's a beautiful community, and the staff are all incredibly friendly and caring. In particular two of the administrative staff I spoke with, Phyllis the director and Allie the marketing director, were both incredibly helpful and always available. The staff here do a great job working with Alzheimer's and dementia patients, and they've really helped my loved one do a complete 180.

Wonderful place

My experience with Bentley Assisted Living has been wonderful! They made a fabulous first impression. When you come in on your initial visit they are immediately helpful and compassionate, they know it is a trying experience for everyone to make a move like this and they take a lot of the burden off of both families and their loved ones.
It's a beautiful looking community, and it has a great atmosphere.

They have been really, really good.

They have been really, really good. They are very clean. The staff is very friendly, they have been wonderful. They have been quick to respond to any needs or concerns, there have only been a few things. There are good activities, and he is starting to get involved. The food is pretty good, but he likes a lot of vegetables, they do a good job accommodating him if there is something he doesn't like. We are very satisfied.

Happy !

We looked at 8-10 communities for Mom - Bentley was by far the BEST community - it wasn't even close !
She moved in about 10 days ago and we are very, very happy with all aspects of the community. More importantly - Mom is happy !

So far so good! Love Bentley

So far so good! Love Bentley

saw the rooms and they are small - but didn't know sq ft. good care - hydration prog. way too far away though - 28 mi from me. built by church - lots of church involvement - only have 2 - 2bd units that are occupied by roomates.

Neglect

my husband was there 8 days total
it took 4 days to be put on shower list.( I gave him shower)
it also took 4 days for laundry list.
He never had blood sugar taken. He was listed as diabetic
He fell twice in the night. A new sleep aid was started by Dr. and he was to be watched for side effects. After the falls as his POA I asked for medication to be stopped.
When returning home with medications. I found he was given sleep aid 6 more times. He was in a state of complete
confussion. unsteady on his feet. He told the nurse he had burning when urinating. I requested his urine checked.
It never was.
As a fulltime caregiver and wife. I feel awful for the neglect I put him through.

Truly Blesses

After contacting A Place for Mom, I received immediate contact with a representative who contacted several possible places for me to place my husband in a Memory Care Unit close to my home. I am so pleased with my choice, and he is receiving wonderful care. My prayers were answered by the wonderful staff members at Bentley. His room is spacious and comfortable, and I have only positive things to say about the facility and the service provided by A Place for Mom

Great activites and people

We're very pleased with it and all the arrangements that were made and them being patient and working with us, it was really a great help. I've talked to other people in the meantime and they say its a good place and she does like it, they say its good for her. I think the activities are really good, she doesn't tell me what she participates with and what she doesn't. She sits back in the hot sun and they've been real good about going out and telling her to come back in and cool down and bring her water. They make sure that ther's activity, they make sure that there's some spiritual help and someone to talk with. Everything is available and she just needs to let herself relax a little bit but they're wonderful in telling her when they're making trips and what's going on. They have a good activities director there and they also have a little bit of a library with a rotating supply of books and a garden that she really enjoys.

Very nice and clean with a friendly helpful staff. Pricey, but includes more than single personal care homes.
