I visited this facility
My mother was here for about 9 months until she passed away. She had been at another facility but her needs outgrew that place. I admit I was spoiled by the fine care at the other place but was very disappointed and frustrated by the care she received at Market Square. She was not given her meds on time more than once. After being called on this, the situation did not improve. i continued up the chain of command with poor results. i finally called the head of the local hospital. Market Square is part of the hospital. It also helped that I knew this person AND his mother was also at Market Square! Then suddenly things got better. But it makes me sad to think about the people who do not have someone to advocate for them. I am sure that missing meds is only one of their concerns. Finally as my mother neared the end of her life, (cancer) I needed to become very assertive again to be sure she was receiving an adequate dose of pain relief meds. The staff seemed unfamiliar with what was an acceptable dose to give to an end stage cancer patient. Hospice helped me advocate for the correct dosage. It really took some very strong advocating to get this done. Again, what about those people who have no such advocate? Not a place I want any more to do with.
