The staff members did not monitor my loved one's medications well and so I do not think that they had a good handle on that at all. I would have to give the Hawthorne House a four - star rating overall.
Very nice place!
This place is wonderful! Hawthorne House is a beautiful, clean, well kept facility. The whole place has a very pleasant atmosphere, and there are no unpleasant odors at all. The staff here have been very thoughtful and kind when dealing with my loved one, which I really appreciate! If they have an opening I would highly recommend Hawthorne House to anyone looking into care in the area.

We are really liking this decision! Aside from the personal adjustment, our loved one is doing much better here! They are really taking good care of her here and she's getting more comfortable! She's making physical improvements too, and is getting up and walking around. She's also eating well here and says that the food is great! Their activities are great, too! They recently had a dance where they were up and dancing around and all of the residents had a great time! It's like one big family here! It's a very nice place and we know that she is safe and well taken care of here!
Rather than attempting to make an institution feel more like “Home,” the Hawthorne House is a home with some of the features of institutions (such as security systems, nursing supervision, etc.). A private bathroom, attached to each bedroom, provides necessary visual cueing to protect the dignity of the resident. The single hallway is circular to eliminate the fear of becoming lost. The bedroom doors are personalized. The kitchen area has been designed to allow residents to participate in meal-making. Rather than a large spacious (unfamiliar) dining room with multiple tables, residents will gather around a comfortable dining room table as a “family.”
The Hawthorne House provides a physical, social and operational environment that accommodates the disabilities of someone suffering from dementia and capitalizes on the person’s strengths. By reducing the anxiety and confusion that result from an unaccommodating environment, residents of the Hawthorne House are allowed to function at their highest possible level. Candidates for residency at the Hawthorne House will be later stage dementia patients for whom current living environments such as their own home, adult foster care, or assisted living environment are no longer secure or suitable for their special needs.
