I am a friend or relative of a resident

My father lived at this facility for two years before his death. It was very clean and run efficiently. The staff was very professional and tried to give the residents personal attention. However, they needed more help. These workers were so busy and almost ran from room to room. My hat is off to them because they were not paid what they are worth! They had two doctors assigned to the entire place, and they only saw the most sick residents. I would say the resources were stretched to the limit, and the staff did a remarkable job. Community groups also provided activities like bingo and music. It was sad to see so many residents who did not have anyone to visit them.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My father was a resident at the Mexico Missouri Veterans Home for 2 years. I was very impressed with the high quality staff and administrators. They knew all the residents names and every resident was treated with respect. The facility was very clean and comfortable. My father received excellent care. He also enjoyed the activities offered to the residents. The food was very good and family could eat with the resident they were visiting. Family activities (Christmas party, bar-be-ques, Veterans Day and Family Day) were also scheduled during the year. I highly recommend this facility.
