I visited this facility
When I visited Smith Nursing Home for the first time, I was immediately impressed as soon as I pulled into the parking lot. The grounds were well-kept and landscaped. The exterior of the building looked new. Upon entering the building, I was greeted by a recptionist at the front desk. She was friendly and directed me immediately to the room where my uncle was staying. It was easy to find. I found him in his bed reading. The television in the room was on his favorite channel. The shades/curtains on the window were open revealing bright sunlight and a nice view of the landscape. It was Fall, so it was really a pretty site. My uncle was in good spirits, although he complained about the staff and conditions. However, it must be noted that he is known to complain and make up stories for our amusement! While I was visiting him, staff came into the room twice to check on him. They were friendly, joking, and seemed completely at ease, despite his complaining. I later learned that he had become nasty and irrational with the staff a few days later. The staff handled the situation tactfully and with compassion. In fact, they had MUCH more patience with him and his cranky demeanor than I would have had given the circumstances. Eventually however, my uncle became increasingly difficult and became a threat to the staff and other patients. The director of the nursing home gave him numerous chances, but in the end, he had to be discharged to home. I do not blame the nursing home at all and I feel that they handled the situation wonderfully. I would definitely recommend this facility in the future. The staff was compassionate, patient, and competent. The director was personally involved on a daily basis. The facility itself was clean, bright, comfortable, and home-like. It was quiet, smelled good, and was decorated for each of the holidays. My experience with Smith Nursing Home was overall positive and satisfactory.
