I visited this facility
This assisted living provider isn't terrible. The staff for the most part seem to care about the patients. They have an appropriate number of people staffed the majority of the time, unless of course people call out. Most of the residents are happy with the staff and their lives at St. Barnabas, but the staff sometimes neglects the patients in the worst conditions or saves them for last which I think is wrong. They also provide meals that don't seem too appealing and seem mostly like gross hospital food.
I visited this facility
St. Barnabas staff was professional and compassionate from the moment I entered the facility. The director gave me a personal guided tour and was helpful with the many questions I asked. The staff was attentive and kind toward the patients. The facility was clean and sterile and all of the rooms and apartments were decorated very nicely. The professional staff of Physical/Speech and Occupational Therapists was highly trained and were attentive and effective. I witnessed a PT help a patient take a first few steps after having hip surgery. The staff was very excited and this helped the patient work a little harder. She took even a few more steps. This made the day of the staff and the other patients to see her walk. It brightened my day too. It seems everyone here truly cares is working for the total care of the patients. The menu is well planned and has many health options for the patients. The patients said the food is very good and it seems like the food is prepared with great care. The food looked very appetizing and the residents seemed to be delighted with their lunch options. The common areas are lovely and cozy for visiting. There are many activities to keep the patients active mentally and physically. There are exercise classes, Chess, Card games and Bingo. They also have outings to the movies and Wal-Mart. This is a lovely facility and I am sure your loved one will be happy here. There is short and long-term care. The efficiency apartments are lovely and cozy and your loved one has the option to bring their own furniture if they like. This is a well run facility that goes out of the way to make life easy for your loved one so they feel right at home.

My mom stayed in the St. Barnabas Nursing Home after a fall and emergency surgery. At first, I wasn't sure what to think about St. Barnbas Nursing Home. My mom did not seem to be getting better, and I wasn't sure if she was getting the attention she needed. I think at the time, they may have been a little under-staffed on CNAs. But once the nursing staff realized there was a problem and that my mom was going to need a little special attention, they did a marvelous job. Every nurse I talked to about her gave me detailed reports on her condition and asked questions about her so that they could better meet her needs. The building is a beautiful, light-filled modern building that almost never smelled like a nursing home. It's location right by Erlanger hospital is good, too. But it is the caring nurses and staff at St. Barnabas who I think made a difference in my mother's recovery.

My aunt recently moved into St. Barnabas. She lives in an efficiency apartment with her own bathroom, a small kitchen, and a bedroom/living room area. She was able to bring in her own furniture and decorate her unit as she liked which she appreciated and made her happy to have a personalized space. She was also able to bring her cat to live with her, which was very nice. Every time I have gone to visit, the staff has been very positive. They have a large bulletin board with pictures of their residence and a calendar of activities. For each day, there is at least four things they can choose from. They offer everything from movies and bingo to trips to Wal-Mart. There is one employee in particular, Marie, who I have been so thankful for. She is always very prompt, and you can tell that she genuinely cares about the people living there. The facility also is always clean and well kept.
