Be active and present in your family member's care. I observed that the residents whose family was not present tended to be left alone quite a bit. Issues seemed not to stem from lack of management, but because the staff were spread very thin. There were some staff who tried to do their best. And then there were some who perhaps should have been let go for lack of attention and courteousness but could not be let go because the facility was so short-staffed. We found one of the attendants asleep in our loved one's chair. There were numerous instances of his clothes going missing. He came in with three coats and left with one. They told us they looked for the missing items, but they never did come up with them. The way that they treated our family was inconsistent. They were friendly to some of us and not to others. Again, there was variation depending on the workers. Some were very friendly and helpful and would go the extra mile to assist. And then there were some that were there to do just the bare minimum. I understand that issues with staffing are a challenge nationwide currently, be we were paying for a service we feel we did not receive.
The staff is very proactive with Mom and I know she is in good hands. I especially like how they remind the residents of meal time and medication management.
