Very early today my Uncle [Name removed] passed away. Also today he was buried. In the Jewish faith we bury the deceased quickly if possible. Everyone did what was necessary to ensure this happened efficiently and promptly.
I want to thank each and every team member because my uncle was happy at The Chelsea. At first, it was a big adjustment but he acclimated quickly due to the loving care and attention he got every day from every person there.
For me, it all started with [Name removed]. I interviewed many such facilities in Jackson, near my uncle's prior home and in Monroe, near my home. I chose The Chelsea not only because of its proximity, but because of [Name removed] and also [Name removed]. Both were very assuring and so I believed he would get the proper care; my conclusion proved sound.
Nurses [Name removed], [Name removed], and [Name removed]were wonderful. They kept me informed at all times. They called if there was an issue. They took great care of his needs. They welcomed me each time I visited. They were not just his nurses; they were his friends (and mine too). Dr. [Name removed]was wonderful. [Name removed]and the team downstairs in the Cottage were fabulous. I wish I could remember everyone's names. So many, all were terrific...Associates I can describe but cannot recall their names, for that I apologize. Everyone always made me feel welcome and provided care and concern for my uncle. He ate with the V.I.P.s and he truly felt he was just that- a VIP.
This morning when I went to his room at 6 AM to see him one last time, I was so impressed that 2 staff members who tended to him came to say their goodbyes. Clearly, though he has passed, he wasn't just another short term visitor. They treated him with care, respect, and with loving attentiveness even after he was gone.
The Grace hospice team was exceptional. [Name removed] and [Name removed] deserve huge kudos for the care they provided in his final days. Thanks as well to [Name removed], the social worker, and the Rabbi who came to offer prayers and blessings and give support to me and my family...
I suppose this is a love letter of sorts. I love every single person who made my Uncle's time at The Chelsea enjoyable. Yes enjoyable. He adored the staff. And he loved the food! He had Sloppy Joes for the first time and loved them! He also enjoyed festivities, especially the music.
Uncle [Name removed] was a loner for many years. But he was never lonely at The Chelsea. I will be forever grateful that you gave him joy these last few months. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and bless you all for the wonderful work you do. My family and I are so very appreciative...

Nasty place not worth staying
This place is the worst ever. Don't put your family member in there. It's nothing but a front just to get your money. I give this place a ZERO rating. Reaping with urine, food sucks, workers sitting around on cell phones, loud talking amongst t h.g themselves, patients not being properly watch. Male patients walking around trying to get in doors. Items missing from rooms. They are a bunch of money hogging staffers and rude liars about this place. Nothing they say is true. I suggest you look elsewhere their poor rating speaks volumes.
I am unfamiliar with the other Chelsea ALF but I can tell you that this location is poorly run. There is frequent turnover of administration as well as staff. My loved one has fallen several times over the past few months. Response time is 20-30 minutes each time. I find this unacceptable with regards to quality of care and it is atrocious for the price they charge these residents. We have had issues with missed showers, missing prescriptions and roaming residents stealing from my parent. Attitude is poor from the top all the way to the bottom. It is obvious by the way occupancy has doubled in the past 18 months that they are more worried about the bottom line than the well being of their residents. My loved one was in an ALF in a different state - very different and a very enjoyable experience. Do your homework before sending your loved one here.
Poor Rude Hell Hole
This facility has been renovated but what lies under beauty and decor is another story its what o call "plastic" "phony" there is two realities I actually toured the facility the marketer Cheryl was smiling yet her tone of voice and poor eye contact showed me she was not wanting to tour us she had no knowledge of the speciality care memory impaired unit which was nicely decorated due to holiday yet smell of urine overwhelming there was two workers sitting conversing to each other one had cell in hand few residents sitting alone no interaction a activity going on with group of 9 by bubbly older woman named regina who introduced herself Cheryl did not there was trash stuck in handrails on walls the nurse [removed] thin physically eating standing over med cart On tour of second floor I was introduced to the director of nurses who appeared irritated unfriendly in corridor I heard loud conversation by large sized african [removed] in wellness where she stated "im tired of these residents and their [removed]" She was talking to a young man I was sad to see how Chelsea a well known healthcare company had lowered standards but as I sat in lobby I did have insight by conversing with a resident who informed me the place was the pits and blamed administration stated she does nothing we have no rights well clearly id never put my mom here now
