    Beware before signing anything here. Get everything in writing, and if possible notarize everything anyone at Schenley Gardens gives you. My mother was here for a few months. The care was sub standard at best, the food appalling and the management changed so often there was no one with whom to communicate. The floor she was on smelled of urine and when I pointed that out, our 'tour guide' replied that you have to expect those odors in an assisted living place. We were charged for many services we did not receive and since we didn't document every missed service, we had no recourse. I suggest consulting with an attorney before agreeing to have a family member live at Scheney Gardens. I challenge anyone to eat a week's worth of meals here. There are far better places in Pittsburgh that charge way less money. The convenience of the Oakland location is not worth the horror of having anyone live here.

    They have so many activities on the schedule every day for my mom! There is even a choir group that she sings in. She loves the shopping outings and I love that they take her to her doctors appointments. The meals are great, and my family loves the private dining room for family dinners. I think they take good care of my mom and keep her from feeling lonely. My only complaint is that the furniture could be a little more updated. But I've heard that it's in the works.

    Housekeeping not providing enough towels. Have to look for dining room seating due to porch area of dining room closed off (my assigned seating is there.) Social activities are minimal-outings have decreased since I became a resident. Have had two thefts recently. Telephones have been out for more than two weeks (although I have been advised that they are working on it) I am a very unhappy camper these days.
