I just moved my sister in law yesterday at St. Luke, and they provide all the services we needed. They offer a lot of activities in house. They a full therapy on site, doctors that come on site, and they take care all the prescriptions to make sure her meds are always on a hand. They have three chefs there, and they treat them like they are in a restaurant. They sit down, order what they want on the menu, and are given an option of 4 entrees every dinner time. Actually, she moved in to what they called Dogwood Commons -- which is the assisted living part of it -- and they’re all brand new. The room she is in, she is the first one to stay there. The maintenance guys were helpful; they helped us move stuff in. They were right there to hook up the phone and the cable. The nursing staff was there right away to check on her and see if she needed anything. They have been wonderful.

I saw my mother here for the first time today. She moved in about 10 days ago so she is still a bit off from the transition. The rooms are unbearably small next to other nursing homes I have seen for friends and family. Her roommates furniture was on my mom's side of the room so she could not have her wheelchair there. I have never seen a nursing home room so small, dark and it smelled. I felt horrible for mom to be in such a place. She was upset at having trouble breathing at lunch. I asked the nurse when she came in. She said mom had on her oxygen so it "was just a panic attack." As we were working to attach her portable tank she realized it was empty. There was no apology to my mom for disrespecting her and assuming it was her fault. I am a psychotherapist and know about panic attacks. If mom says she can't breath she can't breath. She has had some strokes and has a hard time asking for what she needs. She should be in a place that can take her concerns seriously and not treat her with such disrespect. They had a sign at the nurses desk that said complaint department 200 miles that way....how awful to do people who are scared, vulnerable and dependent totally on these people for all their care. If they were not they would be in assisted living instead. I fear they will even hold this review against her. Poor thing for having to live in such an awful place. I hope to help her find a better place soon.

I feel that overall this facility does a great job with the patients. My husbands grandmother has dementia and is a very difficult patient. They always respect her and take wonderful care of her. The staff seems very caring with her and she is always clean and tidy when we have come to visit. The facility is nice, and in the section that she is in, you actually have to be swiped in with a card which I feel is very important considering that many of the Alzheimer patients do get violet or could wander outside. Meals also seem well balanced. They take most of the residents into the dining area and make a nice experience out of it. The only thing that kind of bothered me when I visit is that many patients seemed to be waiting on aids. They had the residents lined up in the hall waiting to be wheeled back to their rooms. I understand wanting to spend time getting each patient situated in their rooms but some waited for quite a long time. They could at least wheel everyone back and then go back to each room. I feel St. Luke's has earned a 4 Star rating and is meeting the proper standards of care.
