Highly recommendreviewed on: 05/17/2021 by John N
We chose this facility because of the location, availability, ad we also liked their security. My mom was in memory care and they were all on one floor and there was a very good staff to patient ratio. I think they were very good with communication and they sent out newsletters to keep us updated. They were very accommodating with having families visit their loved ones. They tried to cater to everybody personally as far as the meals go and figure out what they liked so that they would eat. I would definitely recommend.
We are satisfied with this community!!!reviewed on: 07/06/2016 by Anonymous
I feel that the pricing of the nursing home is a scam. They offer one price and then raise it when you talk to them. The staff at Bethesda is good with my wife. They also offer good healthy meals for her to enjoy. The home is clean and well taken care of.
Quality Facility that Cares!reviewed on: 07/24/2019 by DiazFamily
My father was at Bethesda for a few months this year. He was comfortable and happy. Bethesda is clean, inviting, and a quality facility. The employees care about their jobs and the residents. Our family felt extremely comfortable visiting him and we knew that he was well taken care of when we were not around. THANK YOU BETHESDA STAFF!! Diaz Family
Do not give water to patients!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!reviewed on: 07/08/2020 by K
My mother was scheduled for a family visit during Covid-19. While we were waiting, they found her unresponsive and needed to call 911. She was rushed by ambulance to nearest hospital. She was found to have been severely hydrated and had high sodium levels with a UTI. They do not even care to make sure dementia patients are given basic need of water. Very upset and would love to not give the caretakers water where they become unresponsive and almost die.
Unhappyreviewed on: 09/14/2018 by Kathleen
My husband Rip.π, was there forban open wound care, 2017, all they cared about was Physical therapy π his room was not hardly clean, PT. Never locked his wheel chair when brought back to room. He almost tipped over 4x. Kept a blue matt,by his left outside of bed on floor in case he fell, some CNA's were terrible, place understaffed, at times, not a safe place. Ceo is not capable of handling complaints of family members, side doors outside of building were broken, and anyone could sneak in, no cameras to watch if anyone could enter on side door. I wouldn't recommend this place, really. Not what its cut up to be. Especially if person has Dementia π. I give it a 0 REVIEW π . Argued everyday for my spouse. He was not happy at all. It may be ok for temporary rehabilitation, but not for permanent resident π’ half of the time call light in room not working.
