Reviews of Village Health Care
A Hospital Social Worker August 19, 2011
I visited this facility
This is a small skilled nursing facility for about 50 residents, with no specific memory care. Parking is very tough here"”especially if there's a staff meeting.
Village HealthCare is clean, although not immaculate. Rather than offering a homelike atmosphere, it feels like a hospital, with a centrally located nurses' station and cold common areas.
It also feels a little chaotic inside. There is an RN on staff"”and several CNAs and LPNs. It seems as if the staff is flurrying around, addressing the needs of the high needs residents"”or hoarding around the nurses' station. None of this imparts a sense of calm.
But many staff members have been there for a very long time"”some 20 years or more. And most of them are pleasant, even though they do not seem to go above and beyond the call of duty. They also seem patient and caring with family members.
There's a basic outdoor area, but it has no garden, just a couple chairs in a shaded area. And there are very minimal activities scheduled, nothing very engaging"”mostly TV.
The food is decent and readily available, and even special requests are honored.
Basically, this place is a mixed bag. On one hand, I saw wound care that was dangerously insufficient. But on the other, I noted that staff members cared enough to attend the funeral of a resident who died.
