I visited this facility
They were a great help with understanding the type of care my grandmother would need. When we took a tour of the facility everyone was extremely helpful and they had great living conditions. While they provide a comprehensive and affordable plan I only had one small problem with it, if you need more assistance you need to hire a nurse to stay there over night with her. The nurse practioners where extremely competent with medical knowledge, but because of the language barrier it was extremely hard to understand a few of the nurses and that agitated my grandmother a great deal. Otherwise I'd recommend Manor Care to anyone, but that language barrier was a downfall.
Had serious problems at Woodbridge Valley
My mother was at Woodbridge Valley to recuperate after an emergency hospital stay. Problems started as soon as we checked her in. After luring us to the nursing home with the promise of a private room, my mother was placed in a shared room because no other beds were available (so, we were lied to). She was in severe pain (bad enough that her doctor had her on oxycontin), but the nursing home didn't have anything stronger than tylenol available and because it was the end of the day, wouldn't get her anything stronger until the next morning. Throughout her stay, she was given her pain medication on an erratic schedule, leaving her very uncomfortable. The food was poor. Her roommate needed help with the bathroom, but no aides would come to help her and she often had accidents. The worst was that my mother got to the point she couldn't take it any more -- so much pain, no sleep, no food -- that we told the nursing home we wanted to leave. They refused to let her go! I signed her out against medical orders, and they refused to remove her PIC line so I had to take her to the emergency room to get that done. The whole time I was signing her out, the administrator was threatening not to submit the bill for my mother's stay to Medicare so that I would have to pay it all. Needless to say, we have not gone back. The one bright spot was the physical therapy department - everyone there was caring, patient, knowledgeable, and pleasant.
