About the facility
Carol Ann's Home - Wayward

Carol Ann’s Home opened the doors of its first location in October of 2008. We were interested in providing a different type of care than what was currently available to seniors in our community. I believe seniors deserve to live and be cared for in home environment where they feel comfortable but still have access to the support they need. When a family visits the first thing they notice is how home like we are, walking into the living room they find residents sitting watching TV, playing games, listening to music. The kitchen is in full view where you will find people enjoying a snack and watching the days meal being prepared. The patio always has people watching wildlife and visiting with each other walking freely along our path,
Losing independence as a senior can be frightening. At this stage of life it can also seem as though there is nothing left to enjoy. We have fostered an environment where life is celebrated! Our residents have a lifetime of stories to share and family to love and we are here to make sure that happen....

Excellent Care Facility
My mom has had the greatest experience of love, care, and expression of kindness. [name removed] and staff allowed my mom to continue being whom she was with her mission in life. The facility is beautiful , clean , well decor rated and tranquil. There are many activities , wellness program and the food is great well planned by the chef. [name removed] is very knowledgeable about the needs of the residents and is very accepting to their overall abilities. It’s a blessing I found a beautiful place for my Dear Beloved.

Amazing care with a one big happy family feel
I love Carol Ann’s because it doesn’t feel like a facility. When you walk through the doors, you can smell delicious food and you can see patients smiling and you can see staff talking to the patients and interacting with them as if they were their own grandparents. They are so sweet and gentle with them. I will always be an advocate for this amazing facility!

Welcome home
We received a wonderful welcome from [name removed] and all the staff. Sitting outside on the patio was just like relaxing at home with your friends. They allow my mom to still have her dignity and sense of self esteem. They make sure all her medicine is correct and timely. Help her when she gets confused. Carol Ann’s Home is wonderful in our time of need. I would highly recommend Carol Ann’s. It’s the nearest place to home you can get. They have wonderful activities to help them to socialize and have fun.

Aunt's care
Writing reviews is not my favorite- but I wanted to on this. My Aunt [name removed] is not easy to live with. Her cognitive status did not help things. Somehow, someway, the staff, especially Renee, found a way to work with her hoarding behaviors and fussiness. All they had to do is ask about Petey, her dog. Thank you to [name removed] and her team. They worked through many tough situations with us family members and my aunt' physical needs. Did we always agree- no. Did we work together for the same goal- yes. Which is why I would recommend this particular care home for excellent care. We worked together. Thank you.

Great family oriented facility
Carol Anns Home has been a great facility. I find that it focuses more on family values and is more home oriented. It’s perfect for anyone that wants their parents to get assistance, but still want them to feel like they’re at home in a warm, loving’ caring environment. I totally recommend five stars.

Not caring
My sister stayed here for the duration of 4 1/2 day's she had stage 4 cancer .This home is not for person's like my sister. I dont know what is the requirement for taking care of elderly persons but for someone who has to take morphin it was a nightmare .We had to remind them of the times for her morphin no one knew what to do with the dosages too there was no communication between staff we took care of my sister day and night she would vomit every time she took the medication and had to be cleaned up .We paid for 4 1/2 days of having to provide everything for her even the A/C vents were closed to the rooms .I dont recomend this place .For anyone be it old or sick.They are not trained personnel from what I saw so like they say enter at your own risk......... My sister passed away on the 25 of October asking to be taken out of that place.

This was truly an unfortunate situation to lose a family member so young we didn’t charge the family for the entire month which is our normal policy. We only charge for 4 1/2 days. Unfortunately, there was no way to make this client happy or comfortable as she was very much at the end of life, no one was at a stage when they could except that this would be the outcome and the family decided to take her home to make her more comfortable which is when she passed away. This is truly an unfortunate situation. We did all we could in the short time that she was there. Unfortunately, in a situation like this, there’s no good outcome.

Helpful and caring community, but they need more staff
My Mom is here currently and so far things have been okay. It took a couple of weeks, but the facility was able to get a bigger bed for her than the one that was originally provided. That was the only thing that really annoyed me. Other than that, the staff is always very nice and courteous to me. In many ways, we wish there was more staff available. Sometimes they don’t have enough time to sit with her and spend time with her. They don’t get paid a lot either, so that may be why there aren’t many of them available to visit with her. A real big thing for us was that in their policy, the resident, or someone from the family, has to request pain medicine. My Mom doesn’t like feeling like she’s getting in the way, so she won’t usually ask for the medicine until it’s too late. I was able to talk with hospice about giving her the pain medicine without her asking and now she’s feeling a bit more comfortable. It took 3 weeks, but we got it resolved and they’ve been as helpful as possible since. The food is healthy and decent but she doesn’t always like it. However, we can bring in food from outside or have it delivered and they’re more than happy to help feed her the food even if she didn’t get it from them. Overall, I think they’re doing a good job.

A family never has to request medication. We follow the doctors orders. And if a family member, or Client wants to have medication more frequently, we have to have the doctor approve it. As far as our pay for our staff, we pay quite a bit more than what is required, and my girls have worked with me for years, which says a lot.
