I visited this facility
I was very disappointed with St. Nicholas Home. As soon as I entered the building, I saw the inside was in dire need of renovation and repair. It looked old, dated, worn, and dingy; it needs to be renovated. I did not like that facility at all. The woman who assisted me during my visit was very, very pleasant. She was very nice and very pleasant, but her pleasantness cannot possibly make up for what the facility lacked. That was not a place where I would have put my uncle, and I did not. One great thing about that facility was their little courtyard or backyard. A place where the clients could go and sit outside, which was very nice, but the inside of the building was not very good. It just didn't look inviting at all. It was a drab, dreary, and run-down looking place. It did not appear like they were reinvesting any money into that facility.

I would not consider St. Nicholas Home for my mother. We were referred to this facility by a place for mom. When we arrived for our scheduled appointment with the administrator, we were asked to wait for her in the recreation room. During our wait, which was around 25 minutes, we knew this was not going to be a place for our mom. A lot of residents were sleeping even though it was only 10:30am. The room smelled of urine and most of the residents looked like they were not being taken care of (dirty clothes, uncombed hair, and some were were missing teeth. Most were sleeping which was odd as it was 10:30am. A staff person was playing a board game with one resident ignoring the rest until a male and a female resident got into a loud argument over what channel to watch.
The administrator offered no apology for keeping us waiting so long and seem to have an unpleasant demeanor towards the residents. While showing us around, she did not say hello to any residents or staff. A distraught looking resident asked the administrator if she could speak with her right away. We said that would be fine with us but the administrator told the resident that she could call her assistant to set up a meeting later in the day as she was in the middle of a tour. If she wanted to sell us, she would of met with this resident showing she had a heart. We were quite disappointed with a place for mom for referring us to such a terrible place.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
I was very happy with the overall condition of St. Nicholas Home. My grandmother was a resident here and she was happy with it as well. The rooms were clean and provided the basics that residents would need, including a small bedroom and bathroom. Most time is not spent in the room because there is a downstairs area with television and more. The staff members were always very friendly and got along well with my grandma and my family. Residents received all of their meals here and a variety of activities were offered daily to keep the residents busy, including bingo, dancing, and more. Many residents are also allowed to leave the facility during the day if they would like and can be checked out by family members if leaving for several days. Overall, I would definitely recommend this assisted living facility for anyone who is looking to stay here.
