I've been here about two months now. I was sent here from Cross Breeze Care in Sarasota for assisted living. What I've now been told by outside health organizations is that this facility is classified as " a locked-down dementia unit". I am not a flight risk, and yet the doors going outside are locked. And am told by outside staff at no one's available to take me over to the office in the other building, and I'm not permitted to go it alone.
And neither do I have dementia! I'm 60 years old, my brain's working fine.
With a few exceptions, there is a lot of hostility coming from the staff here. Most hate their jobs it seems.The things you do need help with, such as with me to get my contact lenses RX from a fairly recent exam from a private doctor. I'm told Mobile Vision comes here in Thursday's. And that they'd be able to get the RX. Nobody seems to know what's going on. Now I'm told they come once a month, but nobody knows when that day is it how I can be sure to see them.I
I'm out of here ASAP! I do not recomend this facility unless you or your family member truly has a diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer's, and is not safe at home and needs to be safe.
