"Once we got there, the place was beautiful and the staff was loving and caring. They took great care of my mom and us! I feel so blessed that my mom was able to" spend her last days there! They are truly gracious and loving! Considering the circumstances, it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. They made it the best it could possible be for us!

"They communicated well with us about everything they were doing for her and received all of our observations of her well. They have a full list of all kinds of" staff with specialties to provide the best quality of life and comfort for their patients ranging from pet therapists to physicians and nurses. Their care was comprehensive and extremely caring. I call them angels for the work they do and the quality with which they perform their work. I would highly recommend them to others.

The rehab portion of the care was very good. The floor that he then went to for dementia was what you would expect. When he became critically ill- they dropped the ball. Until there were triggers they did not test him for UTI that he had. They cannot deal with critically ill people and I would suggest taking them to a hospital. If you loved one is in a stable condition, I would give them a B-/C+ grade. However, if your loved one develops a life-threating illness they do not know how to treat them, or advise them to take them to a hospital. Critically ill patients I would give them an F.

When my mother went to hospice care at home, there was an initial buzz of activity as people came to do the intake work with my mother, but when she began to experience extreme discomfort and became distraught on a Saturday morning, Hospice Staff responded only minimally to phone calls and did not respond to increasingly panicked emails. The remained basically unresponsive on Sunday, saying only that someone would come on Monday. In response to desperate calls on Monday, they assured us that someone would come early Tuesday morning. Tuesday morning came and the nurse called to say she couldn't make it when scheduled and she was asked to come as soon as she could. By 4PM Tuesday, no one had come or called, so I called in a fury - finally someone showed up soon after I called. She indicated my mother had a faint heart beat and then shortly after, shook her head and indicated she was gone. No discussion was made of any resuscitation efforts despite the fact that my mother had not signed a DNR (this is a minor point - I think not trying to revive her at this point was the right decision, but discussing the decision given the lack of a DNR would have been the right thing to do). So basically, my mother and the family friend who was living with her and trying to take care of her were miserable and without support for the last four days of my mother's life. The friend/caretaker still struggles with guilt wondering if she could have said something that would have made them come sooner and I still remember waiting for hours on Tuesday doing minor chores and waiting for the response that didn't come. I seriously considered

- but that would have just kept the wounds wide open.
We were entirely abandoned by the Hospice in the 4 days before my mother died. I communicated our experience to the

and Social Worker who called to follow up - they indicated that they would relay my story. The only times I heard from them after that was from fund raisers.

There has been numerous times that the "provider" didn't call or show up. They have been contracted to give personal care for my ill mother and during the past 8 months she has lost 1/2 her body weight. No communication between the people that show up and the office. I found her refrigerator w/ spoiled food and took out 3 garbage bags of rotten items. This care provider service has had close to 8 different people show up during the time we have used them. This last episode was that nobody gave care from 12-5-2014 to 12-11-2014. I have contacted the office w/ my concerns and the supervisor "

. I have left 3 messages in 2 days and still no return call by him. For a company that claims to care for people it's truley sad to think that there are bed ridden humans that depends on this type of service. If my mother didn't have a loveing family she would be neglected by Avatar.

There was no cost because it was a Medicare program. The staff was incredibly personal, caring, and capable. They provided my brother with excellent comforting care.

I would like to Thank all the staff at

1) I requested help for my wife on the first night to get a catheter and bedpan. I was told that she should just "use" the bed she was sleeping in and some one would be out the next day sometime to help...sometime between 8-5. I had to make several calls to get someone's attention and they finally but reluctantly came out to help. ...More /> 2) There seems to be a constant change of staff with no continuity between members
3) I have tried to contact their "after hours" (which is a joke) to find out why the pain medicine that was promised two day previously has not been delivered. No response/no one can or will help. The have allowed her to run completely out of pain medicine and spend what may be her last day/hours in extreme pain.
3) They only work from 8-5 and after that is extremely difficult to get any help/assistance outside that time frame.
4) Beginning the third month and have only had one 5 minute visit by a doctor that was in a hurry to get in and out.
5) The one positive thing (bedside manner) is that only one nurse (

) and one attendant (Crystal) seemed to be the only people that really care about taking care of my wife in her final days.
