Westview is full of caring people doing their very best to care for and tend to the needs of the residents, After having my Mom in another "facility" that will remain unnamed, Westview was a breath of fresh air. Everyone from the ladies who make sure everyone is well to the chefs and servers in the dining room, the Staff, the Wellness and Assisted Living Directors and Executive Director and all those I am forgetting to name are sincere, good people who truly care about who they are serving and how they do it. A loving environment for my Mom who has acclimated from her house in the country to her beautiful 4 room apartment with the help of all of the folks at Westview who truly try to make it home. We are blessed to have found them and even more blessed by all of them every day.

I am a care Manager and have been pleasantly surprised by the home-like, warm atmosphere that I have found for my client at Westview. Staff is responsive and wants to help. I have had good communication with nursing, therapy as well as office staff. I will refer others to Westview in the future.

I am one of their entertainers, leading sing alongs twice per month for both their memory care and assisted living programs. I have been involved in the musical portion of their activity program since July of 2014. From the front desk to the nursing staff to the business office to the activity department, and everyone in between, the staff here is so very friendly and show obvious love and concern for the residents. The residents are occupied with a number of different activities each day and are given the utmost care and personal attention. I would highly recommend this facility!!!

As an entertainer, I enjoy performing at Westview. The activity department works hard at making sure the residents are enjoying themselves. I also play at other Spectrum facilities. They are all top notch...

We have found Westview to be a stellar and unique assisted living community. Our dad lived on his own until a bad fall last winter. He is a very young 96 years of age and can do just about anything he has always done. It is hard to find a facility which acknowledges and appreciates that in a resident. Our most important criteria in assisting him in finding a residence was to find a place where his intellect, personality and talents were appreciated.Besides being a lovely, homey community with a caring, kind staff, the people at Westview treat Dad as a contemporary with respect, kindness and a love of life that is wonderful to see. The staff got to know him immediately which allowed him to develop a sense of belonging that is so important to all of us.

I would like to highly recommend Westview at Ellisville Assisted Living for their loved one. My mother was a resident there for over a year, until she passed away last month. I cannot say enough nice things about the care she received and the very caring and loving staff. They were very attentive to her needs, and were very patient with her moods and stubbornness. I found that there was a low turnover of staff, so it was easy for me to deal with someone who was familiar with her. The care she received was over and above what I expected. They were quick to call if something did not seem right with her health. Excellent care to the end. They treated my mom and I like family.

My parents have been at Westview at Ellisville for over 6 months and we have all been very pleased with their expertise and care. During my first visit to Westview, a lady stopped me in the hall and asked if I was considering Westview as a home for my parents. She told me that her mother had been there for 3 years and they were very satisfied with the care and treatment, and would highly recommend it. After experiencing Westview for myself, I too am extremely satisfied with the care and feel very fortunate to have discovered Westview. Their entire staff is extremely caring and supportive of my parents. Both my parents have experienced some health / rehab issues, and we couldn't have asked for a more caring staff to help them through those times. My father also thinks the food is very good.

My mother has been at Westview about a year now. We love the staff and the facilities are wonderful. The nursing staff is very responsive as are all the other departments. Everyone always has a smile or a hello. The activities are abundant and varied. They include everything from outings and exercises to bingo and movie nights. The most important thing is that she is not alone and has people to interact with and to watch over her.

My Mother lives in the memory Care unit. I love the look of the unit and the fact that she has her own room. The staff is like family and does such a great job of caring for my Mother. After looking around I am so happy I found Westview of Ellisville. It has been a great place for my Mother to call home.

I can only rate Westview at Ellisville Assisted Living & Memory Care with 2 stars based on the current situation at the facility. My Mother is a former resident and was one of the first residents in the Memory Care Unit. At that time, and up until about 2 years ago, I would have rated the facility with 5 stars. Since the change in management about 2 years ago, the quality of service and professionalism has gone down substantially. There has been a drastic change in staffing in the Memory Care Unit and most of the long-term care-giving staff have either transferred to other divisions, left on their own accord or have been terminated.As I live in Germany, I only had contact with the facility about once a year when I came back to St. Louis to visit. My sisters, on the other hand, were there on a daily basis. On my last visit, in April 2018, our Mother celebrated her 98th birthday. My sister brought in ice cream and cupcakes to celebrate with the residents and staff in the Memory Care Unit as well as some of the other residents and staff in the facility who had had contact with our Mother over the years. My sister was in the open kitchenette area scooping out ice cream and putting cupcakes onto plates to be distributed to the residents, staff and anyone else who happened to be in the Unit at the time. Suddenly, the director of the Memory Care Unit started yelling at my sister to get out of the kitchen area, that she was not supposed to be there. That may very well be the case, but the way it was shouted at her was extremely non-professional. If she were professional, she would have asked my sister in a civil tone if she could speak to her privately, and not yell at her for everyone (the staff, the residents, our family members and family members of some of the residents) to hear. As a former Nursing Home Administrator licensed by the State of Missouri, and a long-term manager, this type of behavior by the director of the Memory Care Unit was totally uncalled for.A few weeks ago, my sisters were told that Westview could no longer provide care for our Mother and that she would have to leave the facility within 30 days. In hindsight, what kind of care were they providing? She has had a couple of bed sores, the current one is a level 3 sore. How could it go from a level 1 to a level 3 if they were providing her with care? She had a huge bruise on her side a few months ago that no one could account for (“she may have fallen in the shower” is the excuse they used, but she is never in the shower by herself, she is always attended to.)Luckily, my sisters were able to find another facility in just a couple of days and she no longer has to be at Westview. She has been at the new facility for a couple of weeks, and the family is extremely satisfied. For the sake of the existing residents and any future residents, it would be great if the Memory Care Unit at Westview could return to the professional facility that it used to be.

Don’t ever confuse what you’re getting for WHAT YOU DESERVE.Our precious mother was one of the original residents in Memory care at Westview of Ellisville, and we were extremely satisfied with the care she received for the first five years. We were able to be with mom every day for all of those years, often multiple times each day. We have seen it all!!Within the past 2 years Westview has been under new administration. It has become a different place. The director of memory care has been so impossible to work with, 8 of the best staff have left WV, all but one going to the same community!The Mc Director has been rude and disrespectful to me and my family. She didn’t even look at us when we spoke to her. My sister refused to talk to her since an incident on Dec. 27. When I tried to talk to her , She closed her door and pretended to not be in her office, I loudly said. “I’m not leaving until I talk to you. “. She finally opened her door. On another occasion I asked if memory care was fully staffed that day. Director’s response to me was. “YOU DON’T GOTTA KNOW. “ On another occasion I asked a CNA if there was full staff, she responded “yes, the new girl.. “ I asked her name, the CNA said that she was told to tell me that. There was no new girl. Director of memory care instructed a staff member to lie. UNETHICAL !!! I reported that to the executive director. And was told there are two sides to every story. Myself and several other family members complained that the memory care director, as well as CNA staff talk and text on their phones continuously, while feeding residents, pushing wheelchairs, working in rooms, serving food. The staff in assisted living, serving staff, kitchen staff, housekeeping staff, activities and office staff DON’t do that. The care plan was followed at their whim. I can’t count the times she did not have on pjs. She had on a soaked brief, or was pushed off to the side. I asked the memory care director one time to lay mom down after lunch, and was told it was not in her care plan!!!! Again reported that to the executive director. Prior to the new director, staff toileted residents before a change of shift. I NEVER SAW THAT. When asked when mom was toileted, no one had an answer. There was no schedule. Multiple residents have pulled their parents out, one even telling us “ mom’s not safe here.” Their mom was in memory care less than one month. There are some exceptional staff there, but they are fed up with the TOXIC environment in memory care. (Their words, not mine) They know who they are, and we thanked them on our way out. Westview asked us to find another community. WE DID, and thank God for mom’s new home. As I said on no our way out. “I make no apology for demanding and expecting quality care for mom.” We simply were not getting it.For the sake of the wonderful families OF MEMORY CARE, and their loved ones, please, please, do something.
