    Feeling discouraged from other visits to assisted living facilities, my husband and I gave up the search for a few months; we just couldn't see my dad feeling comfortable in those places. When we toured Whetstone, we found it to be peaceful and inviting apartment-style living that felt more like a home than a facility. We loved the natural light on the 3rd floor, the patio in the back, and the updated decor. The bedrooms were roomy and well-equipped (bigger than many others we had seen in other locations). Its close proximity to Riverside Hospital with the capability to handle serious medical issues added an extra layer of comfort to our family. My dad's transition has been smooth. We immediately noticed that he was more talkative, happy, and less stressed. In the 5 months he's been there, what we love best is the warmth of the staff. The nurses are friendly and let us know of any issues or health concerns, taking extra precautions to ensure my dad is safe. Residents are also provided with a call button to press when they need help. Jaclyn, the director, is cheerful and energetic, loves her residents, and knows all of their names. She is effective with communication and responds quickly to questions by e-mail or phone. Whether it is a computer question, scheduling appointments or coordinating activities, the Whetstone staff has been willing to help my dad in any way. We are thankful to have found such a great fit for our dad and would recommend Whetstone as a nurturing and safe place to live.

    My Husband has resided at Whetstone Assisted Living for over a year. Previously he was at another facility and was very unhappy with that situation. At Whetstone he has met many friends and feels a part of the community. He goes out every Wednesday on planned outings to different restaurants with many of the residents. He has become good friends with everyone that sits at his table for Dinner. He has formed relationships with many of the staff and they tell me they enjoy his sense of humor. His apartment is quite nice and roomy. It is kept very clean and orderly. While he would rather be at home - he realizes that Whetstone is best for his continued care and health.

    The Assisted Living Director is always on top of things! She is highly communicative with our family and is always willing to go above and beyond to make your loved one feel special or to address their specific needs. The head nurse is also very communicative and knowledgeable. She cares about the quality of life of your loved one and is willing to make sure best care practices are upheld even if it means going outside of the facility for that specialized care. And we love the receptionist at Whetstone! She is always helpful and never makes you feel as if you are bothering her. She does extra tasks for the residents to ensure they feel secure and validated. If you are looking for a good fit for your loved one, just look at their employee turnover. Those employees in major positions have been there for a long time and that is a positive indicator of the environment at Whetstone. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that I feel we have a VERY broken Elder Care system. And it is the system's fault, not necessarily the facility. Our state/country needs to do better.

    My mother has lived at Whetstone assisted living for the past 18 months. It's been a perfect fit. Her suite is lovely, the staff is caring and she feels safe in her new home. I've found everyone to be trustworthy. I'm very appreciative of the care received to date.

    Convenient location and excellent choice for my mother to be safe and secure. Administrative, nursing, and staff are very friendly and attentive! Very spacious and attractive room options. My mom has macular degeneration and dementia yet has managed to learn her way around and participate in many of the facility's activities, exercise programs and outings. They always make our family feel welcome and encourage closeness with several activities throughout the year!

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
