A place for mom or dad that gives me peace

We chose Caledonia Senior because another family member had been here and we had word of mouth that it was a good facility. We liked that it was smaller, we felt that he would get more personalized services that way. The room sizes are on the smaller side, but for my father in law it is just perfect for his needs. I think that encourages people to go to the common areas to participate in more activities. We have found it to be a very nice place. The staff are very caring, friendly, and we have been very happy with our choice.

The Scottish Home

This wouldn't be the first choice for a parent, if the choice were to be made again. Each time I'd visit, there would be many new faces at any given time. I talked to the coordinator about the constant turn over of staff. I was told the CNAs don't stay long, because hospitals pay better. Once they get a hospital job they realize how much more work it is. Don't be surprised to see your loved one with food spilled on their clothes when you visit. Also, the wheel chair would be filthy, having remnants of spilled food. I asked about morning hygiene routine, which they were always short on staff. My mother's teeth were brushed only when we brushed them ourselves. Dinner hour was hard to visit, people were sitting there who needed to be fed, rarely enough help. I never left there with a dry eye... The Scottish Home is private pay only. I highly recommend to do some serious research before your loved one moves into The Scottish Home. Although, The Scottish Home is always clean.

Uncaring people who are taking care of our loved ones

Can't even imagine what my dearly departed Grandma had to endure having to be under the same roof with the worker [name removed]. This lady was very RUDE to me, not once but twice after My Mutti past. [Name removed] rudely hung up on me several times.
