I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident
My mother lived at Delnor Glen for about a year and a half. The facility is lovely; the food is good. Most of the staff is kind, friendly and helpful. The one problem we had was with the "caregivers", who could have been much better. In one instance my mother was prescribed a new medication. I asked the nurse more than once how Mom was handling it and was always told things were good. When I got the pharmacy bill a month later I discovered the prescription had never been ordered. (If the nurse had actually considered my question she probably would have realized this.) On another occasion my mother was supposed to medicated before a procedure. She left for the hospital before the drug was administered. (Her memory is failing which is why we pay to have someone else handle her meds.) Delnor Glen staff did not call the hospital to let them know that she'd missed getting her medication, nor did they inform the family. It was only after we learned of problems with the procedure that we asked if she'd had the meds and found out she'd not received them. Another time when she was taken to the hospital by ambulance her paperwork (DNR, etc) could not be located and we did not know she had been admitted to ICU until she was able to speak with a nurse the following day and have us called. These are just a few problems that come quickly to mind. I also didn't appreciate the condescending tone the nurse and aids used with my college-educated mother. I doubt she did, either. All-in-all, if one is independent and in good health Delnor Glen would be a lovely place to live. If one needs assistance, I recommend looking elsewhere. We moved my mother to a community that offered better care.
