Golden Livingcenters - Independence
Golden Living Community Independence Center
Choosing this Golden Living Center for my father was the best choice I could have made. The staff are so friendly and take great care of him. I go here quite often to visit, and I, nor my family members, have ever smelled urine. It actually smells like fresh laundry! The nurses do a wonderful job taking care of his health and making sure he is comfortable. The administrative staff answers questions that I have, and always make sure I understand their answers completely.
I highly recommend the Golden Living Center in Independence, and will gladly call it a second home for my father.
Golden Living Center has been a friendly, caring, and and safe home away from home. They address any concerns and provide exceptional PT and OT. Golden Living Center also provides daily recreational activities such as entertainers who sing, bingo with popcorn, and holiday related activities just to name a few.
Kind of ironic that the last 2 reviews were both 5 star and done on the same day. I don't think I could possibly find 2 people who would give this facility 5 stars. In fact, if there were a negative stars option I would have gone with that. When the time comes that you have to put a parent in a nursing facility you pray that they are going somewhere that they will be treated with dignity and respect. After all, they have worked hard their whole life & deserve the best. THIS PLACE IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING IT! It smells like urine. Our family member was in short-term care andtheir hygiene was so poorly neglected. We had to make a change. The staff get very confrontational whenyou inquire about anythingand they will lie and cover up for each other saying "well I hate to say anyone is not telling you the truth" about your loved one. You want your loved one to feel a sense of safety and security, so do not take them here!!!!!! And wonder how with as few reviews are on here, that there are two 5-star reviews on tbe same day??? Hmmmmm......Good luck in your search.
My Father, Mother and Brother have all been residents of Golden Living in Independence, MO. My Father has been there for 5 years and I'm sure he wouldn't be here with us today if he had not had the care he has received from this center. He turns 91 years of age this week. Anytime I have a special request for him ; it is dealt with in a timely fashion, Tonya makes sure the matter is always handled.
A staff member convinced my father who is losing his mind a bit to give her his debt card to get him and money out of the atm, turns out she got $150 for herself and paid some bills for herself. When I spoke to the director she said their is nothing she can do because the employee was off the clock when she took the money out! Then she wants to kick my father a Veteran of the United States out of the facility because I said I was gonna write a review about the situation. I will be finding a new place for my father where the staff doesn't take advantage of him!
The staff were so warm and friendly, everyone smiled and greeted me. They had a care meeting and all the caregivers were there, which helped me feel better about my Uncle. We talked about his meds, diet, activity, everything. When I left I knew he was in good hands. They really do aim to please here making it less "scary". Nursing homes have bad repuattions but this one is top notch. It might not be the newest and biggest but It is definitely a truly caring place.
