Both of my parents were at the bradley house, my dad just recently passed away. The staff and owners are thoughtful, loving and very supportive of not only the client but the entire family. This is the first time in 4 years that they have required caregivers that all their needs were met and I could feel confident that even during my absence they both were safe and happy. We visited many different care facilities and believe that this one is the very best.. I trust the owner and the decisions we make together on behalf of my mom. I can not find the appropriate words to say thank you for making my mom's life safe, warm and encouraging.susan

I feel the comments were very harsh. It doesn't sound like this family member was in charge of his care. There is always family members that do not agree on decisions, and one is usually in charge to work with the facility. The owner does all meds and care with the consult of the Doctor & Nurses. The caregivers are not nurses, and they are qualified for assisted living. Maybe he needed to be in a skilled nursing facility. Why did you not move him if you were unhappy instead of complaining. No one is tied down. And with so many deaths, owners do not go to every funeral. That does not make them not caring!! I feel the people of the Bradley House were misjudged. And remember there is always 2 sides to every story!!

My Grandfather lived at the Bradley House for over a year. The facility itself is clean and spacious but my problem is the owner, who is a very controlling, opinionated woman. Many times she took it upon herself to stop his pain medication or change dosage amounts before talking to his doctor, hospice or a family member. She hires meek, uneducated, timid girls who are wonderful with the residents (The ones we knew have all since left) but live in fear of her - you can actually feel it. The owner did work hard to make my Grandfather comfortable but she also had a way about her that accused our family of neglecting him. Every single time I saw her she questioned our decisions, inserted her opinions and judged our choices. When my Grandfather finally passed away, the caregivers came to his funeral but the owner did not. We felt that as a slap in the face and a true testament of who she is. All the months of telling us how much she cared and wanted what was best for him was clearly a lie. I feel that when all is said and done, it's really being able to control everything around her and the monthly check that matters most.
