Assisted Living Reviews for Walker Methodist Health Center

I visited this facility

Overall the facility is nice. It is kept up well and things always looked very clean. I never heard any complaints on bugs or the conditions. The staff was always friendly and helpful however many do not speak English as their first language and my grandmother stated always having trouble understanding likely due to the language barrier and also to her and the other residents depleting hearing. They have always been very flexible with my family regarding changes to my grandmother's needs and if she is a little late returning home for the evening after visits. Overall, my grandmother and my family are very happy with the continued experience we've had with Walker Methodist. When you hear lot's of stories about the poor treatment of the elderly you can only hope to find a place that lives up to your expectations.

Our grandmother choose this as the place she wanted to live in, after selling her home of 60 years. It was decorated well, there was new carpet and appliances in her apartment, and it was so convenient for her to either have her meals downstairs with her friends or to spend a quiet evening in her apartment. The laundry facility was next door to her apartment as well as the garbage chute. I was impressed with the security of the building, no one was allowed in or out with checking in and this was available 24 hours. The staff was friendly and helpful to her, when required. They definitely keep track of the residents, as when she had not picked up her mail one day, they first called her apartment and when they received no answer, they went into the apartment. This was a lifesaver as she had fallen and broken her hip a few hours earlier and was unable to reach the phone nor cry for help. They saved her life, in my opinion. She was a resident there for 12 years.

The facility itself (i.e. the building) is fine, and in fact the building is much nicer than some other long-term care buildings I have seen. However, I couldn't help but feel that the administration cares first and foremost about running a business, and doesn't truly care for the well-being of the residents. My personal experience is that, while my father was there before I could move him to a better place, the administrators at Walker-Methodist were much more interested in learning about his assets and the value of his house than in learning about him as a person. I urge you to show up unannounced and walk through the long-term care (i.e. nursing home) floors of the building, and I am fairly certain you will become shocked and frightened by what you see. Patients seem to be ignored and left without any engaging stimulation. In addition, I happened to overhear two staff workers in an elevator as they casually discussed a patient who had died--they talked about the deceased person as you would expect someone to talk about a dead goldfish or guppy. Cold, cold, cold. The administrators were, in my experience, all phoney people who I would not trust with the care of a loved one. This is all just my personal feelings and observations, so I urge you to go and see for yourself before you allow a loved one to end up at this particular place.

My Mother was in the memory care unit. While she was there, her dentures were lost. I have left messages with the nursing manager, social worker, and administrator. None will even return my calls. I guess that they are not responsible for anything except collecting the money

My Mom was there for short term rehab. Terribly gloomy, dark, smells of cigarrette smoke, generally looks dirty, dirty glasses, broken unsafe wheelchair, waited over an hr to have someone welcome her-just left her sitting in the broken wheelchair (brakes not working!) in her room the whole time waiting for check in. Elevators and furniture falling apart. Divider curtains ripped, dragging so they are trip hazards. Not updated since probably the 1980's. Never would have agreed to let her go there if I had known how awful it is. Hated to leave her there!!! 2 stars are only for a couple people on staff that were competent and kind.

My mother was in Walker Methodist for her rehab. I have a friend who works there, so I looked at their memory care. It is a very old building, and it is kind of depressing. I know the staff is wonderful, but I just figured that she needed to be in a bright and sunny place.
