It was the worse 14 days of my life. I never seen an CNA except to bring food. When I rang the bell for pain meds and to go to the bathroom the call bell was shut off at the desk and no-one ever came in. I was on my own. What a very helpless feeling the whole stay was. They missed many medication doses. The room and bathroom was so filthy! I would never recommend this facility to anyone.

My mother is a resident here. She gets good basic care I suppose but I am concerned because she has fallen three times and taken to the ER. This last time she got a black (and swollen) eye, several stitches and a concussion. When queried no one was able to tell us what happened during any of the three incidents. I'm not sure what they provide beyond basic care. They roll her out in the hall in the morning along with other residents and leave them sitting around the nurses station.

The aides and the nurses of James River Convalescent Center were very kind and very helpful. They went out of their way taking care of me during my stay there. I was there for three years and they proved to be valuable assets of this nursing home. On the other hand, I was not pleased in particular with the people from the top management. At night, they would only have one nurse for two units, which in my opinion was just criminal. If there was an emergency, there was no way one nurse could cover it. I think the management cut corners way too hard to the disadvantage of their patients. Also the food was terrible. I would not recommend this place.

My maternal grandmother was a resident at this facility. She lived here because we could not care for her on our on and the previous facility she lived at did not care for her properly. This facility had such caring staff and they took good care of her to the end. One of he favorite thing about this facility is that every other thursday they have three dogs that come in to visit the residents. On sundays they load anyone who wants to go on a bus and take them to church, she always liked that as well, but rarely felt well enough to go. The food they serve the residents is delicious and they have snacks available at all times. Visitations are always encouraged and looked forward to. Family members can pay for meal cards for themselves so that they may eat with their family member, which is nice and the residents love it. I do recommend this nursing home to anyone in the area.

I visited this facility
During my HS days I hung out with the elderly for class. It was one of the best decisions I've made in my life as it got to see how the older half lived. In some places, the living was great. In others...not so much. Maybe it was just me but this place just seemed 'dead'. Like the staff was just phoning it in. I remember hanging out with this funny little lady, she said she was 76. We would making fun of the terrible food comparing it to airplane food. Now we were nice about it just joking around. But then one of the nursing staff came in and just glared at us. Like what? She then went and yanked the tray from the lady's table in a huff. Apparently staff here lacked a sense of humor. Hopefully time changed this. In fact aside from the residents the place was so ho hum I can see why the residents joked about it's blandness so much.
