Stay Clear if Health Care Center

First Community Village was great prior to acquisition by National Church Residences involvement. Under no circumstances should you consider the Healthcare Center. Plz see ODH surveys 2017 & 2015. Ratings demonstrate nurses having difficulty with proper medicine administration. If your loved one can’t self administer this is not the place for you. Also the doctors give medications to patients to suppress their ability to speak. So if a complaint is lodged with Ohio Dept of health your family member can’t offer input in complaints nor communicate when they ate soiled or in pain. My family member is placed in solitary confinement and not allowed in the dining hall due to needing 2 persons to assist them with transfer into transport chair. I hate to say this bc i dont want to admit it but there is a racial element tio my family member’s abuse and neglect. The last time i took my mom to dinner at M restaurant she begged me not to take her back. I had no choice. My mother has recently lost over 26pds and I inquired with the dietician about her malnutrition. I know I sound unbaised but all this is true. I was a whistleblower and bc the nursing home was contributors to the Attorney General I was retaliated against and lost control of my mom. My 68 year old mom is slowly dying and being tortured at First Community but too many people are afraid to get involved. Half of the healthcare center has been shut down. Medicare or CMS may have information as to why the facility is running at less than 50% capacity. Now ask yourself why would a facility in Upper Arlington be half full. Independent Living is much different and this is a better service although NCR has reduced services a bit. Chelsea may not have a desk attendant to assist you. Dont be surpised if your nursing aide is your housekeeper tomorrow. The food at Chelsea is great! I would stay clear of the infamous Health Care Center unless you dont care about your family member and just want to dump them someplace. Assisted Living is a lot better.

Not recommended

Attractive facility but expensive and very poorly managed. Any for profit enterprise run as it is would be bankrupt. Food average but expensive. Housekeeping in the apartments all but nonexistent. Staff generally friendly but obviously untrained. Nursing/Healthcare just terrible. Understaffed, no management visible, aides sit around in unoccupied rooms and watch TV. Patients wait 20 - 30 minutes for someone to answer a call. Everybody is sorry, everybody has an excuse, nothing is done.

Not accommodating to mother under hospice care

So sad this facility is politically bent. Want to move my mom out of her assisted living room after 5 years with her cat and under hospice care. Tried to make other arrangements to keep her with her cat, but the staff doesn't seem to care. Very sad. The staff doesn't seem to work well with outside private duty companies. Makes them feel unwelcomed as an outsider.
