The facility is older and not state of the art, as far as function and design, having really old furniture and crank beds which gyrate when moving the patient from up to down positions, etc. But the facility seems to be clean and well kept. Importantly, the staff and or CNA's seem well trained and caring and are attentive to the needs of those they care for, within what is reasonable to expect. The morale seems good.

Litchford Falls Healthcare was the cleanest when we looked all over Raleigh for our mother. It was also well-lit. We were pleased with the care. We didn't like that she suffered, but we couldn't do anything about that. All they could do was really be good to her; they bathed her to keep her clean and comfortable and gave her medications the doctor ordered. The nurses, especially the CNAs, were very helpful and kind to her. She loved them and they loved her, especially a young man who bathed her and took care of her. He would come and bring his little son to meet her. They had entertainment. In the last 3 months, they had like a high school prom with a live band. They brought people to do the ladies' makeup and find dresses for them. They brought young men in from the nearby college to dance with people. They would have Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner with families. The activity director was the best I've ever seen, since I used to work in nursing homes as a teacher. He was so great. He would come in his tux and bow or sometimes in a body costume for entertainment. It was just wonderful. It was hard for her to share a tiny room, and she (not because of that) became more and more disabled and ill. They called me when my mother was about to die. She could no longer get her breath; she was crying and everything. They called me to come immediately. The nurse who had taken care of her was praying really loud, and we all were crying because of my mother. If you have to be in Medicaid care, I think this is as good as you can get. They were excellent. They did the best they could for her.

My mother in law is a resident at this facility, being placed a few months ago after a hospital admission and surgery for a broken hip. She also is in end stages of Alzheimers. The staff at Litchford opened their arms and hearts to her upon arrival. She required intensive PT for the hip surgery and with the extreme dementia, she is very challenging to say the least. Everyone seems to have the patience of a "saint" while dealing with her. She visits the administrator several times a week just to bless her out for one thing or another- none of which make any sense and they just smile. We knew this day was fast approaching in her when she would no longer be able to be kept at home safely. The decision to place her in a nursing facility was made for us after the broken hip. She is settled there now, she thinks this is her new house, she has lots of new friends, many with the same mental capacity or ailments and she is happy. We can't thank everyone at Litchford Falls for all they continue to do for our family member.

I visited this facility
I was disappointed with the lack of urgency from the staff that I encountered. Though they hold a tough position, I think its deplorable to ignore the requests of their patients or atleast listen to them.
