Reviews of York General Hearthstone

I am a friend or relative of a resident
Hearthstone is an overall excellent nursing home in York, Neb. The facilities are well maintained and clean, and there are a lot of activities for the resident who are up to being social and getting out of their rooms. The nursing staff are generally caring and gentle people who seem as though they care about the residents. They will work with the families to carry out their wishes, and generally stick to requests for how family members are cared for. Occasionally, there will be a staffer who will not do as they are asked, or communication issues will mean that staffers, especially the overnight staff, are not aware of requested changes in care. The biggest problem we encountered were the doctors, who would often change medications without consulting the family, resulting in our grandmother's behavior or emotional state changing unexpectedly. My aunt, who spent much of her time there with grandmother (her mother), was the greatest judge of how grandmother was doing on her medications, and the doctors would often ignore her when she would relate how changes in medication affected grandmother. Overall it is an excellent facility, but family needs to be firm with the staff and doctors in making sure that the resident get exactly the best possible care.
