We had Suncrest Omni and their team gave the most absolutely best care to our loved one. We unfortunately had to part ways with them due to our loved ones health
Marginally Met Expectationsreviewed on: 05/20/2021 by anonymous
If you're looking for someone to provide companion care and your need does not veer over into skilled nursing, it's worthy of consideration. If your need is more along the lines of skilled nursing, I would be cautious. I think I saw as much as I did because I was more involved. I think people distance themselves from the care once it's being provided and don't see what's actually going on. I would recommend that you keep all valuables, sensitive information, and medications secured in your home. I was disappointed that I didn't know who would be showing up each day. They couldn't provide a schedule for me because they had staff turnover, and some of the caregivers didn't like my mother with dementia. There were a lot of factors. So in my experience, they were average, not great. I had challenges with them, but I suspect I would have had challenges with any company. A lot of it revolved around caring for people with dementia. I felt they should have sent someone who had experience with that. People who have dementia have specific issues that manifest in different ways, and if the caregiver is going to be offended by that, maybe they need more training or need to choose something different to do. I know right now it's difficult to find help anywhere. Leadership in the company was great. One caregiver in particular was awesome. Another caregiver in particular was a little brutal, and didn't have any empathy for someone with a cognitive impairment. When I was considering changing companies, I found that they were about $10 an hour cheaper than other places I checked out. So if you're on a budget, the value is good. If you're looking for more companionship, I think they could be great. If you're trying to keep your loved one out of a nursing home, as was my situation, I wouldn't necessarily recommend them.
A Good Place to Bereviewed on: 05/17/2021 by Anonymous
Every time I visit my loved one is in their room. I would encourage you to look at the community, as it is close proximity to areas with other loved ones. Since we have been there they have only had 5 residents at a time. There currently isn't a lot of activities going on. The communication with the staff is fair. There seems to be someone new each time I visit, and I don't feel comfortable with all of them yet. The staff at the door are welcoming. My loved one seems to be doing well here.
My tour experiencereviewed on: 05/21/2021 by anonymous
I knew pretty quickly this wasn't where I would have wanted my mom. The people there were so very sweet, and there was nothing wrong with the tour or the facility. It was just the difference between staying at your aunt's old house vs. living in a nice hotel, which was the type of community we chose for her in the end. We were looking for more of a luxury experience.
