Paramount Senior Living at Newark – Reviews
My mother was in Paramount’s memory care unit from June 2018 until she passed in June 2019. The family agrees she received outstanding care from a professional and warmhearted Paramount staff while she was there as detailed below: The course of her advanced dementia was close to the typical one you’ve read about elsewhere. We noticed something was seriously wrong in 2013. By 2018 it was probably past the time she could live at home. Sending her to Paramount (Brookdale at the time) was a wrenching family decision, and it took some months to get everyone on the same page. Finally, we all agreed she wasn’t safe at the house even though she lived there with other family members. When she entered, she could walk – though unsteadily – and she could feed herself. From the beginning in 2013, the pattern was a step down in her capabilities and then a long plateau, but over time, the duration of the plateaus decreased before the next step down. The physical plant at Paramount is clean and designed with the patients’ needs in mind with a secure and locked memory care section, flat floors, and bathrooms designed for their requirements. The staff keeps the patients on a predictable, steady schedule. There are approximately 20 patients in the unit. Social isolation is a major problem for the elderly—part of the care is just the patients being together—they seem to be appreciative of each others company. My mother didn’t participate in very many of the activities, but she seemed to enjoy being there with the others. The well-trained, patient, and compassionate health aides (always at least 2-3 or more on duty) keep the patients under constant line-of-sight supervision. If needed, there are nurses one minute away a short walk down the hall. There is quite a lot going on that you don’t see—bathing, dressing, and other daily activities they take care of in an optimum and efficient way. These daily routines are increasingly difficult and stressful for family members to take care of at home. After a certain amount of mental decline, it becomes just too much for a family to handle it. Paramount is staffed and trained to do it— while there she was safe, clean, and comfortable. Paramount closely monitors food intake. At home she refused to eat some days. Paramount handled this effectively and ensured she received proper nutrition. Paramount works with other companies including Compassionate Care to provide additional nursing care for feeding (the ability to swallow declines) and other daily activities as mental capacities continue to decrease. These are questions you need to ask: What happens when the mental decline exceeds Paramount’s capabilities to deal with it? Will she be moved to another facility? Paramount’s family communications are outstanding. The nursing staff and facility management kept our family well informed in real time about what was happening. Facility manager Paul Taylor did a particularly outstanding job. In his role he has a lot to balance: state and federal regulations, the needs of the patients, family concerns, his staff, and corporate Paramount. Things happen, and in our experience, Paul was able to make it work in the best interests of our mother. Cost: The monthly costs at Paramount are typical for similar facilities in Delaware—some are a little more, some a little less. My dad required a nursing home – skilled nursing – kind of as described above, except patients there are in constant line-of-sight supervision by a nurse, not a health aide. They also need more supervision at night, and other labor intensive care short of a hospital. Skilled nursing costs approximately twice as much as the Paramount memory care unit. Depending on the nature of the decline, skilled nursing might become a requirement. In our case, Paul kept us informed so there would be no surprises, and he did everything possible with the outside care agencies consistent with his obligation to comply with the regulations. Again—he made it work. In sum, based on our experience, my family highly and strongly recommends Paramount.
We needed to have my mother admitted to a memory care unit quickly, and Paramount was wonderful! Other facilities required a 6 week process, but Paramount was able to assess her, get all her records and admit her within four days. They even went to pick her up from the rehab center she was in! The administration and nursing staff are extremely helpful. We call them often (probably too much, I admit) and they always respond promptly. I am very happy with the care my mother is receiving.
My 96-year-old mother's happy - no, she's thrilled - to be "at home" in Paramount in White Chapel village - and so are well. The staff there are universally kind, caring and helpful. Friends who've visited are impressed - the rooms are neat and clean, there are tons of activites, the proximity to the Newark Senior Center is a big plus, and the range of services gives us the flexibility to tailor a program which is "just right," for us all.
Let me start out saying that I am most grateful for what you and the Paramount staff do in the care of my mother. I can not comprehend anyone giving you a negative evaluation. My mother is a most difficult elderly person to deal with, and I make a daily visit to check on her, so I have had more then the usual opportunity to see her care, as well as other residents of your facility. You are doing a wonderful job with her care, and I thank you. Best regards. Jim Maio
We moved my favorite mother-in-law in to Paramount two months ago (early 2019). It was a smooth process to get her enrolled. It was a really tough transition period for her having lost her husband a couple of months before and having to move across the country. The staff came and visited us at our Newark home and did a warm and friendly and professional interview with her that put her at ease for taking the physical tour. She literally spent just a minute on the day of the tour to decide to put down a deposit and moved in within two weeks. She talks about the good food, the activities and the new friends she has made. Having worked with older adults all of my adult life and with families who have gone through this process, Paramount made it as easy and painless as I've ever seen it. They have been so responsive to my wife's questions and requests and quickly and efficiently have done everything we needed them to do to put her mom at ease and to put our minds at ease as well. We discoverd that it's as difficult emotionally to drive away after dropping one's parent at an assisted living place as it is to drive away after dropping off our children at college. The difference is that Paramount left us feeling totally assured about her safety and well-being. I would highly recommend Paramount to any family.
My Mother-in Law has been a resident of Paramount (formerly Brookdale, Emeritus, Gardens of Whitechapel) for the past ten years. We have been very happy with the loving care that the staff has provided for her. She enjoys the weekly entertainment, activities, and her meals in the dining room. The staff and management are quick to address any small concerns we have had and they have always been rectified in a timely manner.
Paramount made the transition from one provider to another pretty easy. They accommodated our request. I understand they are going to renovate and update the facility.
