My father, brother and I toured this facility as scheduled at 2:00 pm, therefore, we did not eat lunch. We were greeted warmly by the staff at the front desk and [name removed] our tour guide. The facility looked well managed and maintained. The staff we engaged with were friendly and outgoing. The residents we encountered were friendly and helpful. The dining area looked inviting as well as the activity areas. The hallways were wide with plenty of handrails. The only abnormality is that some of the rooms do not have showers; there are community showers for those rooms. There is 24/7 nursing coverage. Other than the personal shower situation, which would not apply to my father, the facility warrants consideration.
Overall a nice place. We like the 1 floor layout. The dining area was cozy and charming and we liked the huge shaded outdoor patio.
New to assisted living
My dad recently moved into the assisted living at Golden View. This was a difficult transition for him, but the administrator personally escorted him to the dining room and introduced him to the other residents and really made him and us feel welcome. We visit at different times of day due to our busy schedule and have found the staff on all shifts to be responsive and friendly. My dad has adjusted well, even made friends and is attending the various programs they offer. Also, he is not the only male resident! When we toured other facilities, it is mostly females so this was important to him. I feel for the price we are getting quality care, a private room w/ full bath, and a nurse 24/7 on site.
So far, so good
My best advice for anyone placing a loved one in a nursing home/assisted living facility is to be proactive. I thought I had done a thorough job researching and writing down questions, but as time goes by, I have so many more I wish I had asked. My loved one is happy at Golden View for the most part.
There were a few blips at the beginning, mostly because I visited after work and there were no administrators there to speak to about problems that arose. We got everything taken care of, though, and I must say that my concerns were addressed the next day, if not that night.
When my loved one's resources run out, she will have to go into the Medicaid Unit, which is not as nice as her private room now. That will be a problem but it's a few months down the road.
The majority of the care givers are wonderful. One has an attitude but that's a small percentage. Food is wonderful and the activities are varied and plentiful. Private room with bath, nice view. All in all, a good experience so far.
