I am a friend or relative of a resident
Mother has been to Union Plaza Care Center. She didn't have a very good experience. The environment wasn't that pleasant. The room is OK. The staff was OK. The food was OK, too. One bed was facing the door and the other bed was facing the window. The room was not that bright.

Environment: The first thing you notice when entering Union Plaza, is the lack of that strange smell that are present in many nursing homes. There are 7 units where residents reside, each with a RN nurse supervisor. Each unit has a bright dining room with a TV, a TV lounge and an area for sitting. There is a recreation room in the lobby and a 9th floor recreation room and lounge. Although the wallpapers are a bit faded, it is mainly clean and neat. During the summer time, it can get a bit stuffy. The nurses may turn on the air conditioning, and the light in the dining room may be turned off in order to keep the room cooler and more comfortable for the residents.
Staff: This facility has a large Asian population, and this type of diversity is also reflected in the staff, which includes Chinese, Korean, Taiwanese, Russian and Hispanic nationalities. The administrators, RN nurses, LPNs, CNAs, dietitians, therapists, housekeeping staff, recreation staff and dietary aides are all friendly and caring towards the residents. Some dietitians even help feed the residents.
Food: The kitchen staff includes a Korean chef, so there are often Korean dishes made to appeal to the Asian residents. However, the American residents are never forgotten! While the Asian residents receive Korean food such as Chop Chae, Bulgogi and Beef Rib Soup, the non-Asian residents are given items such as Spaghetti and Meatballs, Meatloaf or Baked Ziti. The staff eats the same meal as the residents, which was so good I ate it for the entire duration of my 15-week internship at this facility. During the summer months, there is also a barbeque every two weeks! The menu runs on a 3-week cycle, so for long-term residents it can become boring after some time. However, the kitchen staff tries to accommodate any meal requests the residents have.
Activities: The recreation staff provides a variety of in-facility activities and plan outings to casinos. In-facility activities include ice cream socials, coffee clutches, resident council meetings, pizza making parties, etc. The recreation staff also decorates each unit according to the time of the year and facilitate activities within each unit.
