If your loved one is on any opioid medication you might want to think twice about placing him/her at Valley Terrace.
At first sight, it looks lovely, helpful and yes, the kitchen is well stocked and the meals are really OK. But...
My mother was on the fentanyl patch and also Oxycodone to treat her severe pain. Over time, certain staff members began to remove her fentanyl patch before its expiration date, and then tell her she had "lost it" and that she had to get down on the floor to "find it." So a 94 year old woman was crawling on the floor to find something that was never there in the first place.
The Oxycodone pills were given whenever they decided to let her have one while the doctor's orders were for a set schedule per day. Where they go? Did anyone care about the obvious pain she was in? No one to supervise the meds.
My family tried to advocate for her on a continuous basis but the situation just deteriorated. She needed attention to daily walks and exercise and did not receive this. Without this she became confined to a wheel chair and eventually to her bed.
