My Dad lived at Shalom Park Nursing Home for the last two years of his life. He, and I, received compassionate care and support from the staff members. Although he had dementia, they got to know him as an individual, not just as a "patient." I feel fortunate that he lived out his life in such a beautiful, clean, and spacious facility with excellent care.

If you’ve ever had to make the decision to place a loved one in a nursing facility, you know how devastating that is. You feel like you should be able to take care of your parents - after all, they took care of you. And when that's not possible, it's hard on everyone. About three years ago, our mom was told she couldn’t live on her own any more. For an incredibly independent person, you can imagine how she felt. We started our search for the place where she could be happy, and a friend recommended Shalom Park. We toured (and we toured other facilities as well), and from the first greeting from the receptionist to the staff on the floor, we wre impressed. I could talk about the rooms (they call them "shared", but they are large offset spaces and easily made private), the food (yes, it's institutional, and not to everyone’s liking, but there's a large variety each day and always the "any time" menu) and the environment (it's clean and well-tended). There are tons of activities for all kinds of interests (Bingo, knitting, reading, cards, singing ... too many to name), and mom participates in the ones that interest her. Music programs, visiting animals, crafts projects with school groups … it’s not just the people there, it’s the community that surrounds it. But the thing that is most important to us, since we can’t be there 24/7, is just how deeply the staff cares, and how seriously they take the commandment to honor thy father and thy mother. Mom isn't just cared FOR, she's cared ABOUT. And that is the most wonderful thing of all.

I am/was a resident of this facility
I live in Shalom Park in a two-bedroom patio home with a garage, small sun room, and full-sized kitchen. The community is made of elderly seniors whom I think are waiting to pass away. It's a nursing home with senior accommodations. The staff is pretty good and nice. I cook my own food.

I visited this facility
I've visited Shalom Park for my mother. The housing was a little bit too far from where they had the food service and for my mom, she has a little dementia, so for her to figure out how to get to one location to the other, that was a little bit more difficult. The facility was less expensive but it was just a little bit more confusing as to where you would go. They did have a full range of activities. They also have a fitness center with a pool. You could get your dinner in your building, but you have to go to breakfast and lunch in a different building. They need to cater to more people that need a little more assistance than independent living.

My grandmother was in the care of Shalom in her last days. Prior to being there she was still coherent and even able to still walk. She had no major health issues that would deem her to a specified timeline remaining to live. Though her Parkinson's, arthritis and perhaps another was her only illnesses. After arriving at Shalom she quickly started to deteriorate. She was no longer coherent, her eyes were glazed over and she no longer was able to walk. This facility had her pumped full of drugs, I know it led her to her death. Though I was not the main primary caregiver facilitating her care, I know with all my heart that in the few short month she was at Shalom, she quickly went from one coherent being to a zombie like person with no sense of being! This is at no level a place for anyone! At the time of her passing I was newly pregnant and could not manage pursuing any sort of legal action against this place, but I am currently looking into the possibility of holding this facility at Shalom to be held responsible. I hope you find it in you heart to take my words as truth and not place anyone in their "care" as I feel it is a sure death sentence. Thank you for reading.

The first thing one notices about Shalom Park is that it is very clean. It has an airy feel to it with lots of interesting art in the halls. The staff is very caring, and are quite cheerful and optimistic. They seem to genuinely care for the residents, treating them with the respect and dignity that they deserve. They are there to help when the resident needs them, and are very much in the background when things are going smoothly. Activities are offered on an almost-daily basis. Dining out at various restaurants for lunch is an option offered several times a week. The resident is never pressured to take part in these outings, but they are gently encouraged to, if their health allows. Other outings include visits to museums, shopping malls and concerts. All of this serves to keep the residents' minds engaged in the process of living. The evening meal is provided for the residents, and is by most accounts, quite good. The deserts that are served are delicious. An LPN is on the premises 24/7, and can assist in administering medication. The LPN also provides a front-line defense against medical emergencies. While no one likes to leave their home, having a caring, clean, compassionate place to go, where one is safe and gently and discreetly looked after is a luxury that should be know by many more people in need of such care. After two month's experience with Shalom Park, I would whole-heartedly recommend it to those in need of such care.
