Since November 2012, my mother has been a resident of Alta Vista Manor,
She was 102 years old at the time, and as she approaches her 104 birthday, her health and vitality are actually better than when she moved into Alta Vista Manor, (AVM).
I feel very strongly that this is in no small part due to the excellent care given by Anna Wilson and her staff. The personal attention and warmth shown for physical needs, emotional concerns, and social interaction, is never compromised.
These caregivers, who have all been AVM employees for many years, are truly loving individuals, each and every one. I have seen them dealing with very stressful situations, never losing patience, but always showing graciousness towards the individual.
The rooms are always clean and the kitchen is immaculate. Meals are not only healthy, prepared with great attention to balanced nutrition and the needs of the elderly, but they are delicious!! At AVM, family and friends are always welcome to stay for a meal. Holidays are celebrated with great festivity and meals are definitely for the extended family, if a resident so wishes.
Caregivers are always prompt in dealing with personal hygiene. They come readily when called, and show extreme care in making sure each individual gets his/her prescribed medications and is able to take them. Any changes in health appearances, even slight ones, are immediately reported to Anna.
I am very satisfied with the level of medical care given by Anna. She has much experience and knowledge and is excellent at discerning whether to call the doctor, paramedics, and/or family.
I highly recommend Alta Vista Manor to any family who is looking for the best of care for their loved one. This is the home that will provide hands-on loving care, as well as necessary medical (nursing) attention, all given with warmth and affection, as you would yourself.
Never do I worry about leaving the area for awhile, because I have no doubts that my mother is in the best of hands, that her needs will all be met, and if any health issue should arise, immediate action will be taken, and I will then be contacted.
Conversely, John Wilson is very accessible and if unable to answer a phone call, she will return it as soon as possible.
