Very Politereviewed on: 04/08/2015 by Anonymous
It is a great place for my mom. The staff are really polite and considerate towards everyone. The food is really good and my mom has dementia so they take the time to what she needs to eat and make sure she is eating. The facility is expensive but I would have chosen this place for sure.

The people at Westgate Villa are very friendly. They do need to work, however, on following up on issues.
Overall Satisfiedreviewed on: 03/02/2015 by Anonymous
My mother is at Westgate Villa and I'm satisfied overall. Below I've pointed out some things to be aware of. Rooms for residence are less than desirable. I'm told the facility was originally set up for single/private rooms. Now they are putting two people together in a room really designed for one. No division or screen between roommates (therefore no privacy) and one small bathroom. No phone or television hook ups. There is also no place for a private meal or meeting. Would be nice if there was a small room set aside for family get togethers. Staff is friendly but the care givers don't seem to be very pro-active. My experience is that if they aren't specifically told to do something - they won't do it. It's very important that the family stay very involved to make sure needs are being met. Food seems to be quite good with good options for substitutions. I think the kitchen needs help as it takes quite a long time for meals to be served. Many residence need help and there doesn't seem to be enough staff to accommodate. There are two benches outside the entrance, but residence are not allowed to sit outside unless a care giver is with them. I understand the safety issue, but it seems a shame that residence cannot get fresh air and sunshine unless there happens to be someone free to sit with them. They should make sure someone is available so residence can go outdoors. Maybe making the courtyard patio more accessible would help.

Mom is Cared For, Clean, Rested, and Well Fedreviewed on: 09/30/2013 by Karen
The staff is just very warm and friendly. I guess there are some little things like my mom's hearing aid batteries have gone dead and I don't know if they have a system for checking them but little things like that could improve. Other than those little things, mom is well cared for, clean, rested and well fed. She likes it there. She gets assistance transferring into her chair in and out of bed. She has help with dressing sometimes she needs a little encouragement to eat. I think for the care she's getting the cost is very reasonable.
