My experience was positive. Staff was always attentive to patients and helpful with questions or conerns that family members have. The facility was always clean and had a positive atmopshere. They do special things for their residents like have "Bing Night" and honor their birthdates. My grandmother's favorite thing was to go soak in the "big tub". They allowed their residents occasional baths in a tub with jets. The food was ok. There is room for improvement with the food selection. However, most of the residents seemed to be happy and enjoying their time at Rockynol. Upon my grandmother's passing, the nursing facility was very respectful of the family and gracious in working with hospice. They were obliging and many of the staff attended her funeral services. The staff seems to form special bonds with their residents. This facility is especially nice because they offer different levels of assistance. This is a place that you can spend the rest of your days in comfort and with high quality care.

My dad spent several weeks in this facility. He came there after spending 9 days in the hospital. When he arrived from the hospital no one explained how things worked and what to expect on a daily basis. I constantly had to ask qustions. I think they were under staffed with help. Food was inferior. Therapy team was great! Some nurses were better than others. My dad is still able to think clearly and communicate so he was able to express his need for medication, etc. I don't think I'd chose to place him there for assistant living.

Rockynol Assisted Living has a beautiful campus, near the very diverse Highland Square area, in Akron, OH. It has two large ponds, with huge koi and geese that return every year, and memory gardens and trees throughout. There are Independent Living Apartments, an Assisted Living Unit, a Special Care Unit, and a Nursing Care facility. They've recently added a beautiful non-demoninational chapel. The Assisted Living Facility has many activities, and outings, including shopping, lunches and dinners out, and campus wide cocktail parties on Fridays. The Special Care Unit is improving, as far as staff training, care, activities, and consistency in staffing. They are working to improve their knowledge of treatment with dementia and Alzheimer's residents. The Nursing Care Unit is recommended for rehabilitation after hospital stays or surgeries, and residents that require more intense medical care. Both of my parents have been in the Assisted Living, Medical Nursing Unit, and now Special Care. They moved in in May of 2006, and I would move them there again today. There are many facilities nearby, but Rockynol has been chosen #1 for 7 years in a row. No place is perfect, but I now find Rockynol willing to consider new ideas, new information, and new treatments. As long as they're working towards improvement, I can't ask for more.
