I am a friend or relative of resident

They are more than staff, they are family. The care of the nursing and administrative staff, both to the residents and to the residents’ families, was outstanding. The staff truly cared about the residents, both physically and emotionally. The residents’ families were kept timely informed and included as much as possible in every aspect of the daily lives and well-being of the residents. The staff treated the residents and the family of the residents like the staff’s own family.

My mother was very happy with all aspects of her care till the facility was purchased by another company. Then the quality of care went south. The new management decided to transport all residents to the downstairs dining room for lunch and dinner with the independent living residents. My mother was happy to go to the dining room that was close to her apartment, which was the one providing meals for the nursing home and assisted living residents. Under the new rules, all residents had to go to the independent living dining room in the basement, via the one elevagtor in the building. This procedure meant that two times a day, all available staff had to gather the nursing home residents and assisted living residents, line them up in the hallway, make their way to the downstairs dining room, then transport them back to their rooms. The staff was running themselvews ragged, making several trips gathering residents,then transporting them back to their rooms. My mother was so traumatized by this process that we had to eventually pay for tray service for her meals to be delivered to her room. We eventually moved mother to a different facility where she was treated like a person and not as a statistic in a so-called business decision. My stars all go to the staff (I would give all 5 stars) for their dedication and service to the residents.

I visited this facility

Located in a safe, charming neighborhood, The Southerlands has many activities and has a very strong community outreach program. A wonderful perk to this community is the levels of care The Southerlands provides from independent elderly care to assisted living, and full-care nursing home. Also, located very close to the town hospital, this is an extremely safe environment if immediate care is needed. In addition, the town of Front Royal is located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley which is a perfect atmosphere for anyone who loves trees, rivers & fresh mountain air. Many historic landmarks also endow the town of Front Royal as a major Civil War landmark, and is a great place to rediscover our nation's past with many small days trips & activities. The Southerlands prides its establishment with keeping your loved ones active with a small but clean fitness center, a studio with Yoga & Tai Chi classes available, and even many golf courses nearby! The rooms are standard, nothing extraordinary, but comfortable, clean & well thought out. All in all, if you're looking for a safe, social, active environment for your loved one, The Southerlands is well worth checking in to.
