Our tour experience

Our family had an in person tour and we did not really care for it, the activity area was to far removed from where the residents would stay and the dining room seemed a little dingy. It is an older facility.

Overall community is good, and would recommend

We have only seen a little bit of this community so far due COVID, but staff members have been really good and helpful especially during this time. Their communication has been great, first they were sending us emails about what is going on weekly, and now it is bi-weekly. From our understanding our loved one is being well taken care of. The helpfulness really stood out to us, and one of the main reason our loved one chose this place, was because it is more of the independent style of living, and they don't have to move if they started to need more care, the care services come to them.

My familie's experience

Most of the staff was been very friendly, however there is a language barrier which makes communication a little difficult and makes things more complicated. As far as the community in general the reason we picked it was there was a lot included in the price, but after awhile they started to raise the rates. Since we aren't able to see our loved one we are depending a lot on the communication there to keep us updated. This community is all on one floor which makes it accessible to the residents in a wheel chair or a walker. His room is a decent size, it has a decent layout. Our loved one loves the bingo and card games that are offered.

Review of Deer Meadows Retirement Community

This is a lovely place to see — kept quite well. At this time and since there has been lockdown of course, it is very different — like a ghost town — no activities, no opportunity to exercise which has increased my disabilities. The aides are wonderful. The food is terrible. I thought it was bad when I first came 1.5 years ago; but it is pretty much unbelievable or hardly there. I, personally eat mostly toast, coffee.

Review of Deer Meadows Retirement Community

Nice employees. Everyone nice to an old lady! I have a small apt. I keep it clean myself. There are 8 large apts. on the 5th floor, full kitchens, large ref, stove, dishwasher, 1.5 bathrooms, 1-2 bedrooms, they do not pay what the cruel, mean, uncaring administrator [name removed] priced my apt. when I came here, [date reomoved], 1 yr. feels like 10 yrs. I have a heart condition, my R/B is 2,760 a month. I do not eat any food, it tastes terrible! This [name removed] refuses to lower my rent, my [name removed] passed away after Dementia [date removed]. Shame to give this whole federal employee pension and S.S. to live here. I am going to sue this dump. I will not allow [name removed] to kill me from stress. She doesn't care! I know the owners are for rich men from N.Y. I will sue them also! Please help me I am 85 yrs old!

Efficient

The area where my mother is is always very clean, the rest of the community, however can get dirty. The staff is very nice. From what I have seen, the care my mother is receiving is very good. They do a really good job with working through some of her behaviors. The food could be improved, however the activities are pretty good. Deer Meadows is a good value for the level of care, especially considering they are slightly less expensive than other communities in the area.

Behavioral health is not contractual in A lot of nursing homes. Beware

This institution is very deceptive. My parent went there for physical rehab could not return home in their care plan it was not followed when upper mgt came in they said after taking all Moms funds that they had no contract to service behavioral health which was my mothers medical issue [name removed] came in from their side to back us Be ware of places that say they help elders but only lie to get all their funds and your love still remains very ill this matter us called breach of contract and it will cause medical fiscal emotional pain for years to come for the whole family Shame on you Deer Meadows and corporate staff for your greed and unkindness to our elderly community particular our elderly with behavioral health issues like depression.

Stay away!!!!

Please beware! My friend was there for a week after a lung transplant. They neglected to give her the anti rejection meds! Thank goodness her doctor caught it by reviewing her blood work and she was taken out of there immediately! How could they neglect giving her such a critical medication? How does that even happen?! It’s frightening and unfathomable. ????????????????????

Location Has A Gift Shop

This community is a beautiful property. However, it is rather large and I was a little concerned that my aunt might not get the one on one attention that she needed. With being such a large community I found the rooms to be a little smaller than some of the other communities we looked at. One of the features this community offered was a gift shop which I thought was a nice feature. The staff seemed friendly and nice and interacted with the residents.
