I am a friend or relative of a resident
My grandmother is currently at this facility. She has Alzheimer's Disease. The nurses and certified nurse aides at this facility are amazing. Whenever I'm there they are always very nice and they treat the residents like family. The rooms the residents stay in are large and accommodating. When my grandmother lived at home she often wandered away if she was not watched very carefully but at this facility all residents wear an ankle bracelet that alerts the staff if they leave the building, very similar to a tether. It lets us know that grandma will always be safe. The meals they get fed are nutritious. It's not hospital food, it is real food that we would normally make at home. They also take the residents that are able to out on the town some days, even if it's only to the mall to do shopping or to lunch. I really appreciate how well this facility treats my grandmother and I would definitely recommend it if you are thinking about putting your loved one in a nursing home.

I am a past client of this provider
This facility did the absolute minimum that could be done for my mother while she was here. Even after being labeled a fall risk my mother was left alone without fall precautions in place multiple times. Meals were at set times and had to be taken in ether the main dining room or, for residents with greater needs, in smaller in hall dining rooms. Meals were bland and of low quality. Most staff passed the buck and it wasn't uncommon for the RN and LPN nursing staff to stand outside a resident's room with the call light flashing, sometimes for more than thirty minutes, because they didn't feel it was their job to answer call lights. Unfortunately this is still the best facility in Jackson County that will accept medicare/medicade. Overall this facility would be acceptable for a very short term placement or for a person that was still fairly independent (walking & mental facilities) but I would not recommend it for long term placements with special needs.
