I Visited This Community
Mrc Creekside is a very modern facility in appearance. The facility has a very modern and updated look to it with plenty of features that make it look very sleek, much like a hotel. The décor of this community looks well thought-out and the layout is very nice. Mrc Creekside also seems to be quite clean. The facility as a whole is very nice, with a very contemporary feel to it. The halls look very spacious and the facility has a very airy atmosphere. The food here is alright, and there seems to be a fair amount of variety in the menu. The dining hall was also very spacious and open. The outside of the facility looks very nice with excellent landscaping. There is plenty of outdoor seating areas and trails for residents, and the landscaping suits the facility very well. This facility has very nice indoor and outdoor areas and no shortage of outdoor seating. The recreational areas of the facility looked nice. The facility is in a pretty good area. There are plenty of great places in the near proximity and a lot of local landmarks that residents could possibly visit. Overall, Mrc Creekside is a nice facility; however, there is some room for improvement. I would hope to seem some improvement to management and the staff in the future, though the facility is still satisfactory in its current state. This facility is very nice in terms of indoor and outdoor features, there’s a good amount of activities and the food is satisfactory and the area is good. As I’ve previously mentioned, there is a bit of room to improve in terms of certain areas, but all in all Mrc Creekside isn’t a bad facility. The biggest pros of this facility are its appearance. Mrc Creekside feels quite modern, even more so than most facilities. Its modern appearance and open layout make it unique in its own right. The building feels much like a hotel with plenty of nice furnishing and light fixtures that help to add to this feeling. Mrc Creekside has room to improve, but is overall a nice facility.

Since I haven't had experiences with other nursing homes I would have to give Creekside Retirement Community a 3/5. My 85 year old mother is convalescing for two broken wrists and a few broken ribs. She will be there about 6 more weeks. As far as the expense, I was surprised to see it is ONLY $157 a day before insurance! They have satisfactory nursing staff, but polite for the most part. They deal with problems calmly and professionally. The food is marginal. Fairly clean facility. The main issue we have is with the administration of medications. They do well at giving them, but care is not taken by medical staff in reviewing drug interactions. With the elderly often taking many drugs, this can be a MAJOR issue. My mother had all her health issues stabilized and under control before entering Creekside. They then started loading up the drugs, with many of them new. Her blood pressure then started spiking at 200/90 a number of times. Other new symptoms also presented themselves. After doing my own investigation into drug interactions, I concluded that there were no severe or major interactions with the normal medication regimen. However, with the new medications there were a number of SEVERE and MAJOR drug interactions. I brought this to the attention of the medical staff and suspect they will make modifications. Drug interactions are always an issue that must be carefully reviewed by medical personnel. Sadly, it is rarely ever addressed, and doctors continue to just throw new medications on top of the others to attack symptom. All-in-all I would recommend Creekside to others, but with the above caveats.
