I visited this facility
Last year my grandmother broke her hip and, after it had been repaired, she had to go to a nursing home for rehabilitation. The family had heard about Ella Smither from various friends and we decided to take her there when she was discharged from the local hospital. From the moment we walked in the staff was great. The place was clean and smelled nice with no hint of any foul odors. The administrator came to meet us along with the Director of Nursing and the head of Physical Therapy. We thought at first they would let her get used to the place on the first day but we were wrong. Therapy evaluated her that morning not long after we got her settled in and that afternoon they had her walking with her walker and some slight assistance to the bathroom. Every day my then 92 year old grandmother continued to work with the facility's amazing therapy department and after 21 days, she was allowed to go home because she could now walk with minimal support of her cane. The entire staff of Ella Smither's was great! MY grandmoher loved the food, the care and especially the therapy that allowed her to return to her home, where she lives to this day all by herself. The therapy department was so patient with her and encouraged her to doas much as she could each session. THEir plan of care for her was well thought out and extremely successful. While nursing homes generally get a bad reputation , it isnt often that you hear about good work they do. But our entire family is extremely grateful to have our grandmother back home where she belongs and it is all because of the great staff and the care they provide. They are very dedicated and should be a model for how other homes take care of their residents. We would certainly recommend Ella Smither Nursing Home to anyone.
