It is never anyone’s dream or what they write in their High School Yearbook that they end up in a Long Term Care Facility for the last years of their life. Since the day my dad arrived on September 17th, 2020 at Generations, the care and attention to our father’s needs has been more than expected and top notch from ALL of the Generation’s Team. Quality care and compassion does not just start with staff, it trickles down from the top which is the Generation’s leadership and attention to family values. We have noticed very promising changes in our father from all the different facets of care he receives at Generations. This includes the personalized care he receives from all of the nurses and support workers which we have witnessed at some of our visits. Recently my sister and I had a very thorough yearly review of my dad’s care and I can honestly say that we were left with no concerns as all aspects were covered. Dad has not looked as good or been so cheerful in years since being at his “new” home. The fact that he has regular quality meals in which he rarely voices concern about, or that his medications and his exercise routine are finally dialed in after many years is thanks to the medical and OT/PT teams. Over the past months our dad has also been engaged with all staff, residents and social activities that are definitely engaging him & fulfilling his days. It is also very helpful he gets a good night’s sleep in his private room.
When anyone is faced with the difficult decision to have one of their loved ones placed in Long Term Care, our family is definitely an advocate of Generations. There are certainly ‘stereotypes” of care facilities…..and Generations definitely does not fall into that category! Please pass on our thoughts to all that care for Floyd.
