I visited this facility
I recently visited Heritage Inn of Barnesville with my son and other members of the 4-H club from his school. Upon our arrival I immediately noticed that most of the residents seemed to be fairly happy and I was surprised that I did not see any residents that suffered from Alzheimers or dementia, like I have witnessed when visiting other nursing homes. I was there for only a short while when I realized the reason for this was because the facility has a separate unit for Alzheimers patients. Out of curiosity I decided to walk over to the alzheimers wing. Although the staff seemed to be handling the residents with the upmost respect and the best care they could possibly provide, the unit was extremely chaotic and loud. The residents were confused and many of them were agitated and angry. It definitely takes a special person to be able to effectively perform his job in an environment such as this and keep a positive attitude. The nurses were very professional and I could tell that this was not a professionalism brought on by the fact that a visitor was watching. It was genuine. I only feel that there should have been more housekeeping staff dedicated to this wing because, as I learned , demented residents can be very messy and disorderly at times. As a whole the nursing home seemed to be doing a good job taking care of the residents there. The place was fairly clean and the staff was welcoming and professional.
