I visited this facility
My experience with Sacred Heart Nursing Home was horrible. I attempted to move my father from ot of state and tought this facility would be a good fit. I began the admissions process in August with my iniyial meeting with Sister Anna where she we went over the documentaion needed to admit my father. I worked on getting this together and submitted everyhting informing her of the time frame in which I expected to have him move to the area. She then requested more information and over the course of 3 months this became the norm. There was no consistency or even a document twith a full list of what they required. It appeared she made it up as she went along. It got to the point where I asked if they just didn't want to admit my father. He had done all the necessary medical tests and I gave what I thought was all the documentation. When they couldn't give me the run around anymore, they told me that they did not believe the bank statements forwarded directly from the banking institution was legitimate. I asked them to contact the bank directly and they refused. They essentially wasted 3 months of my time. Ultimately, they decide who they want at their facility under guidelines that are based on who they feel they want there. I was humiliated and expected more from a religous facility that should be more compassionate about a decision as important and heart wrenching as decided to place a loved one in a nursing home. Ultimately, this probably was not the place for my dad and God has a way of working things out. Within one week my dad was accepted at another home. Please beware of placing your loved one here.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
Sacred Heart was a very compasionate place. The nuns there truly seemed to care about the residents and their care. When a resident died they treated the deceased with dignity, not just seeming to try to get rid of the deceased, but comforting the family and making sure the family was informed in a timely and compassionate manner. They took true care in who they hired to work with the patients, and took great care in their feeding and care.
