I am a friend or relative of a resident
Mom was sent there after the hospital. She had multiple issues - bedsore, on dialysis, delirium. One reason she was accepted there was because they had a certified wound care nurse and this way the nursing staff could work with a local wound care facility in a hospital for her care. I went for a quick visit (she was going in that day) and the staff was very kind, respectful, found time to talk to me and show me around. I was informed about their family services, given the name of the social worker (who was always available to help me through the Medicaid paperwork), asked about food issues. The facility was clean, neat, 'homey'. On the floor she was to be on, the nurses station was surrounded by residents talking to each other, there was one side room used for eating and meeting with relatives (with a TV). Another side room was for therapy and getting people ready to go home (kitchen set up) but right outside was a patio with flowers and vegetables growing in boxes raised up so all residents could help take care of them -- water, cut, or just to see. They made sure she was ready for dialysis transport on time. Mom was never dirty or smelly and CNAs seemed interested in helping her eat - they never seemed rushed when I would walk in on them. They were helpful and came pretty quick when I wanted to get her up and go around the facility - she needed to be gotten out of bed by a 'hammock' type of lift and into a wheelchair. I was guided very respectfully and treated well when it came time for palliative care and then hospice, sitting with me and sometimes with me and mom, seeing if she understood the palliative care issue. I was talked through all the changes coming and was invited to call or stop by 24 hours a day. When she passed, they were comforting and respectful. The facility is definitely on my list of ones to recommend in this area.
