I visited this facility
Shurmer Place at Altenheim was beautiful. The rooms were very clean, updated, and had beautiful views from the rooms and a very nice courtyard. We didn't eat there, but the tour was very nice. They had bingo, card games, and exercises going on. There's a whole month schedule of activities. The staff who assisted me was very nice.

My mother suffered a stroke while living at Shurmer Place in March 2017. I was called five hours after she had blatant signs of mental status change, noted in progress notes, only to find her in the dining room when I arrived. She was responding appropriately but could not speak in full sentences and had visual disturbance. These are signs of stroke. Taking her to dinner was a huge mistake as she could have choked. The director at Shurmer Place tried to convince me that because she was responding appropriately they felt she was in no immediate danger. This is very bad practice and very poor nursing judgement. I cannot find any evidence that they did anything for my mom after the initial finding. This is heartbreaking and disturbing as my mother lived there for two years and they knew her well. Also know that medical POA has the right to medical records. The elderly population are at increased risk for stroke so make sure staff is knowledgeable of signs and symptoms and know their policy. Staff at Shurmer Place should have notified provider/family at the first sign of altered mental status. One prompt phone call could have changed the outcome for my mom.

We are moving my mom to Shurmer Place at Altenheim because it is closer to where we live. It just seems like the food is better and the facility is a better lit for her. She is getting a brand new room there. The staff is very friendly. They take them on tours -- for instance, they go down to some of the stores or take them out on a picnic, so they do get them out pretty often. The place had more of a homey feeling; the walls are wall papered, for example, and the lighting looks homier.

This facility is wonderful. It is always a pleasant place to be. They treat the residents with care and compassion. They are always available and welcome talking about any concern regarding your loved one. My father is happy at his "home away from home" and I am comforted knowing he is receiving wonderful care.
