Reviews of The Altenheim

As a neighbor it's surprising the amount of noise this place makes, consistently, year after year. Practically every day of nice weather it's like a continuous construction site, with cranes beeping all day, hammering. And I'm a block away. I'd hate to ever live there. It's surprising for a health facility that the groundskeepers use gas leaf blowers constantly, and you can't contact anyone about it or get them to call back. Leaf blowers kick up micro particulates that stay in the lungs and are particularly harmful to children and the elderly. And gas leaf blowers are unfiltered pollutants, worse than semi trucks. There are serious health concerns, and they've been banned in some places. I've seen the groundskeepers leaf blowing needlessly and pointlessly in 20 mph winds, and when it's damp, when a rake actually works better. I really wish they'd be more thoughtful.read more

What a difference from where the hospital just dumped my father-in-law off on a Friday night. We were horrified. But Kelly at the Altenheim worked with me to get him transfered in less than a week.The staffing ratios are excellent and my father-in-law has been treated with dignity and respect from day one.We are so grateful! My fil is on hospice and was very sick when he got there. The great care and encouragement seemed to put him on a plateau. His quality of life is much improved.!read more

Nice facility, very sweet and wonderful residents. Very incompetent administration. This lady Angela who is a secretary there, was a total B and I'm censoring it. The lady who ran the place was keeping an eye on me for no reason and when she thought I was not doing my job she goes back and tell the people at the agency that I work for a bunch of lies. I was stressed out so I left. I don't want to go back and work for them at all.read more

I am so thankful to the wonderful, caring staff at the Altenheim. My mother was at the Altenheim for two years before she died and my family could not have been more pleased with the wonderful care that she received.read more

They have The potential of being a great place but they have a prejudice rude maintenance man who has the person who runs the building in their pocket. I was picked on by him, even attempted to intimidate me by staring me down every time he came near me. When I finally stood up for myself with plenty of witnesses around he threatened me and told me he runs that building and I would never work there again. He was right. Even with witnesses saying what he did, how he rudly talked to me..... I was told to leave not even by the person that was supposed to tell me. They then told my agency they had a "bad feeling about me" so unprofessional. I'm a pregnant black woman who felt threatned and that's how I was treated. I'm Glad tho for my agency who had my back and stood on my side.read more

Although the Altenheim is currently short staffed and in need of CNAs, they are refusing to hire any family members of their residents, regardless of their qualifications. In light of the pandemic, I would expect this facility to be keen on filling the positions and making sure the residents have adequate staff to care for them. I was highly disappointed to learn about this aspect of this facility and I was told that there is no written policy regarding this situation.read more

I highly recommend The Altenheim to anyone looking for a safe, compassionate and caring place for themselves or a loved one to live. It has several care options to meet the needs of each individual, and a variety of wonderful amenities and activities. However, it's the staff that make it stand apart. They treat each resident with the utmost respect, dignity and professionalism. To them, it’s more than just a job, it’s a passion and a calling.read more

The Altenheim cared for my grandmother during her last year on earth. The facilities were up-to-date and always kept very clean. The staff was friendly, caring, and always attentive to her last need as well as our family’s special requests...ALL the way from the director, down to the nurses, and even the custodians/laundry workers. The Altenhein will always hold a special place in my heart. Thank you all!read more
