Caring facility

Sounding in once again. My mom passed October coming on two years. We had no choice but to get her everyday nursing care. We visited or took her out almost every day for three years. I wanted no regrets. Staff was mostly stellar. They have a lot on their plates. Maybe family should want to supplement their loved ones care. Same staff the entire three years. That is amazing and says a lot about the facility. I feel she was truly blessed as were we!

Look elsewhere

My mother was placed here for therapy after a fall. She stayed for two weeks before being discharged to home. After ten days, I was given the admission packet of information regarding her stay. She never received a menu to select her own meals, despite two separate requests. I made sure to take her laundry home to wash myself, rather than deal with lost clothing. When I took her to a doctor appointment, no one bothered to get a wheelchair to transport her to my car. I had to go downstairs to the lobby and borrow one. Most of the time, she was left to do her own care. Her room mate did not fare much better. Having worked in a nursing home thirty years ago, I can say that the care has not improved over the years. In fact, the ratio of caregivers to patients is worse than it was then. I do not recommend this facility for rehab. Look elsewhere.

Bad place

My mother in law lives there. She fell twice, once when in the presence of an aide, out of bed! Their cleaning staff not good at all. Her clothes are always lost. The toilet had a black ring around bowl. The aides are nice but do not help her brush her teeth or remember each time you tell them to help her. DO NOT SEND YOUR LOVED ONE THERE!
