I am a friend or relative of a resident

My father-in-law was a resident here for ten years (until Nov '11). He was fortunate to have his mental faculties intact and needed only simple care (such as assurance of taking his medications). The staff here are very friendly and as compassionate as they can be considering how overworked they are by the facility. Altercare follows the state guidelines of 15 residents per aide, so response time is very poor. The staff does not have any time to go "above and beyond" what is asked for or required. Until I requested it, for example, my FIL's face was not washed after meals (he needed feeding help near the end). It is not unusual to go down the hall and see face after face with food on it from lunch hours before. If you need help getting to the bathroom, odds are very good that you will wait at least 15 minutes or more for help to arrive, so make sure you ask far in advance. The administration is pretty easy to work with, but administrators have a VERY high turnover. I didn't even bother finding out who the new administrator was because they wouldn't be there long. However, the DON and head nurses have been there for a long time and are great to work with, so go directly to them with your concerns. My advice to anyone who needs to make use of a nursing home: allocate plenty of your time to being the resident's advocate because that is the only way to ensure good care!
