Very dated and institutional. Very helpful staff but not what I expected in regards to A Place for Mom AND Dad.

You're not a half-way house!

Burke Long Term Care in Morganton, NC runs this facility like a half-way house. My brother has lived in a group home for 20 years... He moved here a few months ago and now is being booted out the door to live on his own. As previously determined by the State Of North Carolina, he is not emotionally or mentally capable of living on his own. He is not intellectually able to manage money on any scale and does not have the impulse control to not spend every dime he has as soon as it touches his palm. Without medication, my brother is not capable of managing his emotions including rage. I've tried to have him visit and manage his own meds and he couldn't even make it a week. My parents have tried to allow him to cook at their home and he couldn't complete a simple meal. A few years ago, he had a stroke shortly after being panicked by a inconsiderate neighbor setting off fireworks. My brother was frozen in fear as fireworks went off near him. I had to physically move him inside away from the noise and put noise cancelling headphones on him. When my brother visits, I don't allow him to be by himself because he cannot handle any disturbances or minor accidents. I'm enraged a facility can so easily force people out onto the street who are incapable of living on their own. That was the primary reason he was placed in a group home 20 years ago!
