    My mother was a resident at Olivenhain for almost a year before her passing. The care there was so much more than just eldercare. They treated her like family and supported us everyday with their care and love. Larger institutions might have more ammenities, but the personal care and attention that she received from the staff and the owners was beyond our expectations. I would recommend Olivenhain to anyone who wants love and care for their family member.

    This facility is beautiful inside and out. The facility is very clean and never smelled institutional. The insides are airy and bright, while the outside areas are lovely with places to sit in the sun or shade. A lot of care is taken to make sure the residents are safe and can not wander off. The feeling here is one of a protected community that cares about every resident. The staff is very caring, respectful and kind towards the people in their care. The staff makes great efforts to engage with the residents. They have many activities at all levels for residents to partake in. We gave detailed instructions on our family member's care and they followed them carefully. Our family members care here was exception.

    I absolutely love Olivenhain Guest Home! It's a hidden GEM! I worked here while I was in school then came back a second time a few years later. Sadly I had to leave since then, but in my experience, this was the best facility. I found larger facilities to be good, but nowhere has same kind of compassion as OGH. This is a privately owned facility, not a corporation. The owners Hank and Suzanne take a personal interest in every resident. Kelly the administrator always advocates for her residents whether it's insurance related, doctors, hospice, or medical equipment, she fights hard for every resident. They expect the highest care from all staff member. Everyone in this building treats each resident like they were they're own parent or grandparent. That is what makes them so special! I recommend them to all friends and family with loved ones in need of long term care. They're expertise with memory care is unmatched!

    Over the past several years I have had to place my two aunts and parents-in-law in senior care facilities. I feel I have seen them from the outside in and the inside out. There are big ones and little ones, all promising optimum care. After many experiences, I have found the best to be this guest home owned and operated by Suzanne and Hank Kurtz. They make their residents and their families a priority, listening to their needs and providing care that cannot be found anywhere else. They are personable, loving, caring and they go the extra mile every day of the year to give the finest quality attention and care possible. Their guest home is not a facility. Rather, it is a home with genuine attention to each resident. The grounds are peaceful and serene and the food better than home. Thank you Suzanne and Hank for giving so much to such precious charges. Alberta Keystone

    There's maybe about 3 genuine caregivers. The owners are more focused on money than the residents. The owners move residents around from room to room to make space to move new residents in, but as you know patients with dementia don't do well with change. They do not provide enough supplies for staff and residents. They do not use tear free shampoo. The home is rat infested. Or "bunny infested" as they prefer to call it. Rocking recliners are unsafe for residents, when transferring for example. One Med tech left and clocked out of her shift and left the caregivers unattended and a female resident had a heart attack soon after the med tech employee left her shift and unfortunately passed away. Understandable that most residents have a do not resuscitate form but that is abandonment. The female owner loses her temper. Has said to staff member "I'll call you whatever I like" and has referred to certain staff that she has hired of a certain race as "gang members." Would not recommend bringing your loved ones to the facility and also would not recommend working for the facility. Also I'd like to point out that Melodramatic I might have been in some opinions, and I may have been spreading "negativity" but I started out as a very positive and eager to learn employee. The negativity was brought on by a stressful environment and myself being unhappy with the facility's standards of care for their staff and the residents. Cause and effect. I brought in tear free shampoo to share with the residents because I can only imagine what the residents feel, and the owners of the facility told me to stop bringing it in because, "it makes it look like they don't provide supplies." Thats an example of the management's and the owner's thinking so yes, my attitude was adjusting to the environment I was in because I was not happy with their standards of care. Thank you for pointing out melodramatic and negativity but it does not mean that I am wrong. And sure! See for yourself what it's like, like most places you will be allowed to see what they would like you to see, along with some yellow curtains pulled to cover what they don't. :)
