I have recently moved my Mother to the Inn. The first day I came in to tour the facility everyone was very attentive and courteous. The staff has been great! I'm very impress with the follow up from day one. The best thing is receiving daily updates from her care taker regarding my mothers care and her transition to a new home. I thank the management and care staff for giving my family such great piece of mind knowing my mother is well taken care. God Bless and thank you once again for such inspiring dedication!

The staff is an A plus, more than excellent at the Inn.
The office is a let down, they forged my husbands initals on a lease document and changed out the original
lease that was signed. The facility is very good, but I
would be very leary about the business office. At the best, they are dishonest and perhaps with the forgery, somewhat criminal. I will be working to resolve this
situation with them over the next few months. So far, I
have been tied up with a personal move and business and I haven't had the time to work with our legal council or
their office on this, but I will be over the next 3-4 weeks. I will do another posting after I am able to meet with them.

My parents both live at the Amethyst in Peoria. They have been there a little over a year. The first few months were pretty confusing with no real person in charge to talk with. That has changed in most areas. Most of the staff is great. Here are the pluses. My parents enjoy the activities in the community on a daily basis. They talk a lot about going to trips and events all the time this is big thing for them because they would not have any entertainment without the activities in the community. Activities being scheduled regularly that are covering all interests rather than just a few interests is a big plus. My mother is not a quilt maker but does enjoy many other activities. My dad asks all the time where she is going and the answer is usually to an activity she is interested in. Also, every week on Friday both my mom and dad are at happy hour with live entertainment. Just recently my parents have told me about how good the food is. My mom has a digestive disorder and she even said that the food is much better now than before. My dad on the other hand has lost the ability to talk about anything other then how good the food is now. I was skeptical to be quite honest. Yesterday I was down for a visit and all i can say is wow !! Whoever made the changes in food at the Amethyst you are my parents hero. I myself ate lunch with my parents and was impressed with everything. The menu is a real menu not some school cafeteria offering. they cn order anything they want off the menu and not have to eat whatever the Chef made that day. what a nice change for them. The food looked appetizing for the first time since I have been in the dining room. The food is a top notch reason why my parents want to stay after it being a reason for them wanting to move to another facility as little as 2 months ago. The only issue on going is the nursing situation. I know they have a new person in charge and i have talked with her on several occasions. She is more interested in being right than caring. She is really a bull about almost everything. I have heard from others that this is how she is. My sister wanted to talk about some medication questions two weeks ago and got nowhere with her. Rushed, i do not have time for you and overbearing towards staff member is what she reported to me. She is a desk nurse at best not a bed side nurse. There may be a nursing change coming soon. I hope so. She really has no people skills and no care in her whatsoever. She has a horrible demeanor to be in that environment. Oh well 1 area bad does not erase the good things in all the other areas.

The physical plant of this community is beautiful, however over the past several years there has been a considerable and consistent turnover in leadership and management resulting in a lack of continuity in care provision.

History of constantly changing mgmt and "directors". No night time security for residents. Often unable to get anyone in the facility to answer the phone at night because there is no staff person hired to answer the phone (Even medical providers are unable to reach the staff). Very poor food quality and presentation. Food is tasteless. Owners of the facilities remain hidden and the name and address of the ownership is not posted as required by law. Poor maintenance staffing due to staff reduction and reduction of wages of staff. Inadequate housekeeping personnel (staff has been reduced). History of rodent and mold infestation w/ poor responsiveness to repeated requests for services at the onset. Mgmt responded only after complaints were filed w/ the state.

Provider Response May 16, 2013

I value your feedback on our community. While we are thoroughly disappointed that you did not have a better experience we take any feedback seriously to ensure that going forward our residents are highly satisfied while residing at The Amethyst.

When Senior Lifestyle acquired management of The Amethyst in 2012 it was apparent that significant changes were needed. The focus revolved around recruiting and retaining talented professionals, improving oversight and delivery of care, and enhancing the level of customer service throughout all departments within the community.

As the Executive Director I am dedicated to earning a high level of satisfaction from our residents and to being responsive to their concerns and to those of their family members. I encourage you to come visit our beautiful community, meet our dedicated staff and to personally join me to experience our revamped menu in our dining room. I look forward to seeing you.

Executive Director at The Amethyst.
