I am a past client of this provider
My dad stayed at Shady Knoll Health Care Center. He had Alzheimer's, so we needed a high level of care. They were wonderful. The facility was extremely clean, the staff was very caring. And if there's anything going on, they'd call me. My dad enjoyed the food. They had a lot of community activities, like singing, which was probably top of my dad's list. They also did a lot of memory kinds of things, physical exercises, and he participated to the extent that he could. They also have therapy dogs which was wonderful for people with Alzheimer's. My dad passed last month.

I visited this facility
Everyone there seemed to enjoy it even the workers. THe workers really put the time and effort into making everyone happy and safe. It was nice to see one of my relatives taken care of in such an enjoyable environment. I stongly suggest this place to anyone who is looking for a nursing home for their loved ones. THe local elementary school visits on Halloween in their costumes while the elderly people get to watch.The food there is my biggest complaint it was a step above of cafeteria food but it wasn't anything special.The rooms were very spacious and all had a TV in them. It was 2 to a room and had very nice furniture in it.I highly suggest to anyone in the local area to check it out and put your elderly loved ones here. The parking lot was also very large with many spaces so that wasn't a problem and the surrounding area was very pleasant to look at. You won't be disappointed with this fine establishment

I visited this facility
my mother has been a resident for almost a decade. I have visited once or twice a week. The nursing home has very good staff; they are dedicated to the patients and are very good when working with the residents. There have been some uneven spots, however, with some of the doctors. My mother was given heavy anti depression drugs because she would not eat. When I visited periodically with cookies, she would happily eat anything I gave her. It ocurred to me that she might not like the food. When I checked that out, I found that her food was minced or ground so she could more readily eat it. She could not identify it visually however so she would not eat. When she transitioned back to unground food, her appetite was restored and she did not need as many meds. The facility is generally in a good state of repair. Sometimes it is kept too hot.

My mother stayed At Shady Knoll to recuperate from a broken leg. All rehab was done on premises. The well educated/trained staff treated her with such compassion. My mom being younger than most residents, had a hard time adjusting. The staff was wonderful with that transition and making her comfort a priority. Her room was cleaned every day by a very pleasant housekeeper.
