Kivel is an Awesome Facility for Dementia Residents
As a resident of Kivel Memory Unit my mother received fantastic care in the hands of wonderful staff members. She was constantly engaged by various activities through out the day and totally enjoyed their daily music therapy program. The facility is very clean and well planned out to meet dementia needs. During her time at Kivel my mother was happy, healthy and had quality of life. Thank you Kevel for giving her dignity back!
Beautiful Place, But Not Appropriate For Our Loved One
While searching for a long-term assisted living situation for our disabled sister, several people had highly recommended this Kivel facility, so after a delightful tour of this very beautiful place, we confidently decided to arrange for her to live there.
Very soon after moving in, however, she began complaining about the lack of service - not getting assistance as needed, not receiving her correct doses of medications at the proper times, and staff being very disrespectful to her.
Sad to say, she rapidly deteriorated & had to be rushed first to the hospital - mainly to get her meds stabilized - then on to a skilled nursing/rehab facility for renewed physical therapy - because (as they stated) she had "back-tracked" in her mobility progress [removed}.
So sad, as the environment is quite pleasing and most of the residents do seem happy (at least the ones who were out of their rooms and actively participating in activities).
I must agree agree with this statement which a reviewer on another site made: "If your loved one is too much work for the staff they find political reasons to get rid of them and they DO get rid of them!!!!" Unfortunately, this too was our experience. Our sister was just too much trouble, I guess.
Very disappointing. We are now searching for someplace which will be more suitable for her needs.
mom is 91, almost 2 yrs ago we found an independent living situation here for her and she is happy, safe and active. they have a lovely food plan which is served in the dining room and the meals are delicious and nutritious. there are planned activities, caring staff and a congenial environment.
it is also affordable as mom has only her social security .
