Reviews of Franciscan Villa

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My friend wasn't happy at Franciscan Villa. It's not a good environment and was a little bit overwhelming for him. They're understaffed. The people there who are supposed to be taking care of him are not really nice and responsible. They should do their job instead of talking in the hallways. When the lights go on, they should go see what's going on. How are they going to know if someone had a fall?

I visited this facility
Frequently, as is the case with many of these places, they are under-staffed. Having 2-4 people watching over 60-80 residents is ridiculous. More staff would come in at mealtimes, but frequently my uncle would have to wait upwards of 30 minutes before being able to be taken to the bathroom. For the enormous costs to keep him there, it should have been better staffed. However, they did do a good job of keeping an eye on him regularly and making sure he did get his medicines. They also provided a range of activities that residents could be shuttled around too, at least for the residents that were coherent and conscious. Mostly I visited between 3pm and as late as 10pm, and that's when it was obvious they were under-staffed. We would take my uncle for a ride around the neighborhood just to get him out, and when we would be returning, there would be residents wandering around unattended, trying to escape, or just being left to idle. Again, the staff were nice, but just short a bit on man-power.
