I am a friend or relative of a resident
Mom was in Corvallis Manor for a couple of months. She had a really bad infection, and then she couldn't get up and walk. So they were trying to give her physical therapy to get her up and move a little bit. For the most part, the care was good. They really tried, and they worked with her and did whatever they could to help me through the process, so I'm pleased with it. The rooms were very big. She had roommates, a couple of them. There were two beds in each room. It's an older facility, so it's not really up to date, but it was kept clean.

Corvallis Manor is spacious, the grounds are pleasant, and they take care to include services and space for residents with a variety of needs. The facility includes several "bariatric rooms" for morbidly obese residents, easily able to accommodate residents in excess of 400 lb. Several staff members are at least bilingual. They have specialized lifts and tubs available to facilitate safely bathing even residents fully immobilized with contractures. They offer vocational rehabilitation, on-site physical therapy, and dietitian services and specialized meals for residents with unique nutritional needs.Morale down at the CNA level seems to be low. Many CNAs seem only to be there for the paycheck, unconcerned with the residents' wellbeing beyond a minimum standard of care. Motivation and supervision for CNAs is insufficient to ensure their tasks are performed efficiently and properly.Accidents can happen anywhere, and responses to accidents inside the facility are prompt and thorough. A fall or head-bump seems to be treated as a full-scale emergency, because it very well might be, even if most aren't. I have no doubt this reaction urgency has saved lives inside the facility.Cleanliness is good but not perfect. Some areas are slightly dusty, but garbage and laundry are well taken care of, spills are cleaned quickly, and there is no build-up of waste nor fluids, and no mold or mildew that I could see.Overall I would consider Corvallis Manor a fairly good place to live if one must live in a nursing home, but it does have some room for improvement.

I am an elder care provider for a couple in their nineties. The wife took a fall at home and injured her hip. She was sent to Corvallis Manor for physical therapy. My first impression was that the parking situation was poorly arranged anD inadequate. They had very few handicapped spaces (even though spouses coming to see their sick or very elderly mates were bound to be sick or elderly themselves) and the regular spaces were way around the back, making a difficult long walk for seniors. The inside seemed clean and well lit, the amenities were few but adequate. I thought the dining room was very small, and subsequently found out some patients were made to eat in their rooms because there was no room for them in the dining facility. The staff also appeared competent and friendly, I have to say that they answered all of my questions and were very helpful. However, my friend (or elderly person whom I used to give home care to) withered away from her home. Within two weeks she had developed symptoms of heart disorders she never had before, her lucidity slipped away, she lost a significant amount of weight and constantly complained about the food. Also, her intended physical therapy sessions fell by the wayside. Fearing that she might die in there away from her family, her daughter authorized me to remove my "friend" from the nursing home and take her to the family physician she had been seeing for years. The doctor told her that things looked bleak and explained to her that she might not last very much longer. It was a matter of days. Hospice was called, she returned home and family gathered from all over the united states to say their goodbyes. Much to everyone's surprise, after returning home the woman began to make a swift and miraculous recovery. She is no longer at death's doorstep, hospice has been canceled and she is quite ambulatory with a walker. Do I blame Corvallis Manor for the swift onset of deteriorating health? I have to wonder, she was in considerably good shape when she entered, declined awfully rapidly in their care, and is now in fairly good shape for a woman her age. (94)
