i love my grandmother very much as does everyone in my family. at the time of her admission she was active and talikng a lot. over time like other residents i've noticed she has not only become very lethargic and wheelchair bound but very depressed acting. i notice other residents come in and become the same way almost like they stay medicated to the point of submission. the staff (not all) are very friendly to the families but have noticed once the family member walks off the begain gossiping about them. this is not very professional. a few weeks ago after my weekly sunday visit i noticed a wheezing in my grandmothers chest, this alarmed me because the same thing happened several months before and turned into pneumonia and she had to be rushed to the icu. so i told them about the wheezing they said would give her a breathing treatment which i was thankful and left. i was notified later in the week of her being rushed to icu because of the same. it was gone undetected or neglected to this point again. i feel this place is very clean and pretty to look at but this is just a facade. until they get more caring and trained people here i would not recommend this place to anyone and if i had power of attorney over her she would not be anywhere near this place. i feel like the powers in charge there think of the helpless residents are just machines that produce money.

Comfort Care Nursing Home in Laurel, MS is a great place for you loved ones who can no longer care for themselves, if you have the money for a private nurse. Not only is the staff uncaring, it is incompetent. The nurses neglect patients needs such as bathing and turning to avoid bed soars. The management staff has failed to secure a full time staff of physicians, which means that the patients are not getting the proper attention from Doctors. The food is decent enough in terms of sustenance, but the chef takes advantage of the fact that many of the residents will not complain or if they do, the complaints will not result in any action. Finally, do not allow valuables to be kept in the rooms of the residents because they will certainly turn up missing. For the money that this facility charges, it is an understatement to say that it is not worth it. If you can afford the fees and what it costs to have a private nurse for your loved one, it is not as bad. However, with the rising costs of healthcare in a bad economy, not too many people fall into that category. Bottom line, find an alternative.
