Cnas and nurses very good in general. Activities poor and poorly run. Good workers quit often out of frustration. Housekeeping and laundry are well run. food is very poor. Chef tries to present good meals, but is restricted by budget. Management is difficult to deal with. Physical therapy is excellent and highly recommended. Would not encourage anyone to bring a loved one here. Ran into many roadblocks with paperwork when leaving for another state. Glad to be gone except for friends left behind. Bus was out of use for literally months. Also, no permanent driver. Many improvements are needed. Such a small facility should run much smoother.

I am/was a resident of this facility
April 07, 2013
I recently visited this facility and a number of others as well. I was able to visit without feeling like they were "trying" to sell the facility; it sold itself. The facility had no smells that were unbecoming and the residents were smiling. There was a very nice aviary with some lovely birds and bird feeders were placed all around the outside of the building as well. Areas were clean and the staff was pleasant. The meal that was being served was nicely done. The presentation was lovely and recognizable. There was a baked lasagna with vegetable and a very nice salad was being served. Lots of color on the plates and everyone seemed to be enjoying the meal. The residents were being served as if they were in a restaurant setting rather than a nursing home.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
This facility is clean and the decor is inviting. They have been taking steps in recent years to make the residents feel more like they are living at home and less like they are living in a hospital setting. The staff is friendly and my friend who lives there has never complained to me otherwise. They offer daily activities which he really enjoys. His favorite is the resident senate, where he and other elected residents help to make decisions regarding the facility on behalf of everyone who lives there. His only complaint about the building was when they transitioned from one Director of Dietary Services to another and the menu changed from what he was used to. (They no longer offer routine meals such as pasta every Monday, pizza every Friday, etc.) In general he seems very happy at this facility.

About Tonganoxie Nursing Center
Tonganoxie Nursing Center, is located centrally between Kansas City, Lawrence, and Leavenworth. We are located at the edge of Tonganoxie, with a view of the countryside. The building is a 90 bed skilled nursing facility, with rehabilitation to home, short term respite stays, and long term care. The staff are committed to supporting the highest level of independence for those we serve. We believe that while someone is with us this is their home, and we strive to help them feel as though they are home. Our staff have a high level of commitment for the residents; which is what has lead several of our staff to being here for 15 years or more, some since the facility originally opened in 1986
