I am a friend or relative of a resident
Millers Merry Manor is a beautiful facility set next to Shaefers Lake outside of Hope Indiana. Upon my initial visit the staff were very friendly and toured the facility with my brother and I and showed us the living accommodations, cafeteria or dining area, shower and bathing area, and recreational area which included a garden out side both wings for warm weather. They conducted certain activities on every other mid-afternoon. Activities included bingo, bible study, birthday parties, outings, and relaxing outside. During holidays the staff throw little parties to make residents at home, and help make them feel involved in their new community. Their is even a resident council which handles easy tasks to bring out the busy body in the residents that require such. Local churches often come to the facility and conduct service for those residents whom would like to and is encouraged. Local clubs also spend time with the residents such as the boy scouts bring in new decorations for the facility. In whole this facility was well kept, respectful to residents and their rights, and provide a loving long-term care or rehabilitation environment.

I visited this facility
I volunteered at this facility around Christmas time. It was pretty miserable. I never once saw anyone working there interact with the patients/residents unless they were rudely yelling at them. I can understand speaking loudly with hearing problems, but what I witnessed was flat-out disrespectful. An elderly lady I had chatted with the majority of the time cried and told me to come back and see her because she was lonely. I just did not feel as if these people were being catered to appropriately. The halls strongly smelled of fecal matter in every part of the building and the people staying there looked miserable. I feel incredibly sorry for that poor generation and anyone who is forced to be at that facility. However, I did notice that they enjoyed my singing and one particular woman was allowed to have flowers in her room. She had explained to me that she loved to garden and it was a major relief to have them available. At least some little slivers of joy aren't denied here.
