I am looking for a place for my mom. She has Alzheimer's disease and I was looking at Morning Pointe. I had heard they were closing their Alz unit. Anyone have any input on this facility?

My great aunt was a patient in the Alzheimer's unit at Morning Pointe. Her children were very pleased with the care that she received while she was there.

morning pointe is an awesome facility. the staff there are very knowledgeable and kind to their residents. I would much rather see you put your mother there than in madison manor or kenwood. both of those places have been under scrutiny lately for allegations of neglect and abuse. Good luck to you and God bless you and your mother. My dad has alzheimer's as well so I know what you're going through.

Drop in unexpectedly @ that facility or any other place you might be considering several times before you make the decision. They will all promise you the moon. Try to talk to someone with family there. That helps more than anything. Directors are not going to tell you anything undesirable, families will tell you the truth.

I do not know much about Morning Pointe personally but I only know that people talks very highly of the place.

Please take the advice of caregiver always drop in unexpectedly @ the facility and check them out completely before putting your love one in any home. Then when you do put them in a home always do stop by checks, get to know the nurses, orderlys and doctors. Always be on the defensive side never let your guard down. Always ask questions never let them over ride you.

stay away. my friends mother was there and they weren't happy. and they aren't assisted living, they are personal care, meaning the price is much higher than assisted living. the director there just walked out and quit and i think thats 6 or 7 directors in just a few years. its a big decision, but think it through. lexington has memory care, liberty ridge has an alz unit. if she isn't that bad off, maybe mccready manor or arcadian cove.

would not do arcadian cove. a lot of talk but do not have enough workers to take care of the residents they have.

Like someone said be sure and do several drop by visits before you make up your mind and make sure they are not on the same shift. Once you do place your realitive in the home of your choice, make sure to contineuly drop by at all odd hours. If you can't then have someone you trust to do this. My family had to place both of my grandparents in nursing homes. The first home was at Jackson KY called the Nim Henson home. It was terrible. I wouldn't let them take care of my dog. But at that time we didn't have a choice as we wanted my grandfather close by. He had Alzheimer's. THis was back in the early 90's. THen we got the great nursing home in Campton. My grandmother and two of her sisters were there. They were awesome. If you don't mind the distance and need full time nursing care I suggest you check into the WOlfe COunty Health Care Center. Susan Arnold runs a really tight ship with both her staff.

Arcadian Cove just won 2 state-wide awards. Also, the growth alone there is enough to show they are a good place. In this economy, any new private pay community that has over 30 residents in less than 2 years is crazy. The place is beautiful.

McCready is nice too. Very large, but they take the more independent assisted living residents. They are beautiful as well.

And any community that has had 9 Directors in 4 years is in some sort of trouble. I find that odd... just tour the places. Tour all 3... then see where you feel the crew and staff are the friendliest. I do have a friend who works for Arcadian and she says they have never lost a resident due to them "disliking" it. I also have an friend who lives at McCready and she loves it. Shes healthier than me. lol.

Do your research and tour all 3, and stop by unexpected... thats the true test

columbia tennessee facility is definitely not up to par, its not assisted, more like a nursing home with a big price tag, not very considerate of their employees in any way

why do all these facilities have such a turn over of directors? that has happened at one I was considering for my family. I know that is a red flag but what's the deal ? any suggestions welcome

The lexington east location near the interstate off Richmond road has a wonderful alzheimers unit and the other side for people without Alzheimer's is great too

The Lexington East Location just opened and it's beautiful. I took a tour, met with staff, and was very pleased with the activities for both sides of th facility. I am going to go to the grand opening next week to get more information for our parents. I will report back after.

Lexington east location does not have a nurse on duty from 11pm- 7am. medication has not been given when it should have been several times and they have lied about it. The resident there has had to bring up issues about his dad several times. all staff is not certified aids.there's more.

It's been my experience that most personal care facilities don't have certified nurses 24 hrs. I would suggest another facility if this resident requires that type of care. I have worked at Richmond Place in Lexington and they take residents needing closer care like watchful eye has issues with.

I went to the grand opening and met with the executive director. He seemed very nice and was informative. My mother would not be able to stay there due to her amount of medical problems so we are looking elsewhere. If I could, we would put her there. I bet watchful eye's resident wouldn't like it anywhere else. I've seen what's out there.... count your blessings that he qualified to stay there.

My friend is employed by Arcadian Cove in Madison County.She talks with me about how understaffed they are, how the management get away with doing things to clients they shouldn't, & how little the clients are actually cared for.i would not ever consider Arcadian Cove.

No matter how upscale nursing homes are they all have problems I noticed. I hate to see any one have to go but, familys have to put them there. I wish I could save them from going there but I cant, Thats why I love being a caregiver I'm saving a senior to remain home.

Personal care communities don't staff nurses through the night. People who need 24 hr nursing care need to be in a skilled setting. Medications are documented and accounted for. It is difficult for some residents to remember to take medication which is the main reasons they come to personal care...for medication management. There will be minor issues at any community....communication between management and families is crucial for success.
