  • Administration concerns

    Highly concerned about administrative level. There are no systems in place. HUGE medication management issues that caused us the greatest concern. I understand the head of the organization [name removed] has finally come in the beginning of the month to, maybe, find out what is going on at this facility. I would like to know what steps are taking place, because although we have left, I care deeply for those remaining families who have no one to advocate. Thank god they hired [name removed], RN before we left, excellent care and respect for the residents, we did not find that from the other nurse, still there. Total disrespect and disregard. PCA's we found to be caring and open to suggestions, and no problem there! Additional concerns regarding process in place for shower assist, cleaning (in the room and facility!), meals and supervision at meal time, and building/resident safety. And yes, we were told to 'speak up'. We did and unanimously we were always told, "well that shouldn't be", but no change! This is why we just did it ourselves, because we didn't want to make to big noise so our family member wasn't retaliated against. This increased her frustration and anxiety as well. Knowing she is paying an astronomical amount of money, and her family still has to be doing all the work. Not a good place to be in. We'd like to let this go, but this brings us so much sadness. I want this to be the place the [name removed] family must have envisioned according to their website. Maybe was like that in the beginning, but something drastically changed.

  • Happy Safe and Clean Oak Park Place

    My Mother is 87 years old and has been living here at OAK PARK PLACE for 5+ years. I want to mention that my mother has only gotten healthier and more engaged in a social life since her arrival. I use to worry when I would try to call her room and all I talked to was her answering machine. I would find out that she was busy getting her nails done, at exercise class, at mass, playing blackjack or at the movies. I also appreciate that they have quarterly family meal nights. So nice to meet so many family members of the residents. The caring staff at Oak Park Place has truly energized my mother. [Name removed], the director has been a great asset to her staff and our parents needs...after all we are now the adults looking over our parents live and needs. Could not due this without the support of Oak Park Place and my weekly visits.
