I have been in and out of the rehab area and assisted living. Very unorganized. They try to blame their lack of care on anything but their own fault. Do not ever leave someone there without checking on them on a regular basis. In the rehab department after a person was admitted there after suffering a brain hemorrhage, was found none responsive to touch and voice. After removing the covers they were found to have soiled their self to their knees. I would think this would be difficult to do while laying flat of your back. Also noticed sores on one of her legs. When the nurse was asked about this she said: sores what sores. My self and another aid went back to her room to wait for the nurse to look at her leg and condition. When she walked in she lifted the leg with the sores and turned it from side to side and said what sores and before I could say anything the aid said right there on her leg. They were not hard to see. We also noticed that when she lifted her leg the backside of her leg remained flat from laying on the bed as if she had not been turned for hours. I could go on and on with the issues that have taken place. I seen them with her and with other room mates and other people in this facility.

My first visit to Spring River Christian Village was with a friend who was going to visit her grandfather. The staff was very friendly even though the facility seemed to be quite busy as we had shown up around lunch time. Her grandfather's room was very clean as was the rest of what I saw of the facility. The food smelled good but we brought food in to eat that day. After lunch I read on a flyer they were looking for volunteers to play games, have a coffee, chat, etc. with the residents of the facility. I decided before we left that day I would return and volunteer as I wans't working much at the time anyway. In the months following I made it back at least three times a month to visit with my friends grandfather and numerous other residents. During the time I spent there I noticed the residents were offered varying amenities as well as activities inside and out of the facility. Spring River Christian Village is now the place I mention to my grandparents who are also local Joplin residents when they talk about assisted living scenarios for their future. All in all I give the place a 9/10. After finally eating the food their a few times I feel the chef could put a little more effort in somedays. This is the only reason I can't give it a 10 out of 10.

I visited this facility on several occasions as a durable medical equipment service technician. I was impressed by the overall quality of the facility. Most of the staff seemed friendly and willing to help. The rooms seemed well-appointed, and there was always someone nearby to ask for help. Also, the food always looked fresh and of good quality. As far as long-term care facilities are concerned, it's one of the best available in the Joplin area. However, I have heard horror stories, and I have seen the neglect first-hand. One day, I was servicing some equipment, and I heard a patient yelling for help for almost half an hour. She needed to use the restroom, so I told one of the staff members. The staff member ignored both the patient and me. I also heard stories and saw bruises from patients being dropped on their heads at this facility. One thing I know for certain: I will never allow a family member to be admitted into this or any other long-term care facility.

I visited the Spring River Christian Village on numerous occasions over this past summer to do volunteer work. The facility in general seemed clean in some places, and not so much in others. As well I witnessed several of the residents in the short-term or end of life unit, eemed to be all but abandoned some days. I have been to many many other facilities where this is not the kind of treatment they recieve. They are not overlooked and parked in a corner half of the day. They did seem to be well fed, but not as well fed as the one in other units who have the aility to get up and do things for themselves. Spring River is a great place to volunteer but I would never put my family members here. They are in need of much improvement in too many areas.
