My father suffered a stroke that took his mental faculties from him. I was at a loss as to where to put him after his hospital stay. One day I ran into an old family friend who had started working at Brian of Gastonia, and told me she highly recommended it. My parents were divorced, but my family lived in Gastonia my entire childhood, so I took my friends advice and moved him there. Sadly, I regret this decision every day after he died less than a month later. Because his short term memory and other faculties were gone, he needed a lot of attention. But I would often find they didn't allow him dignity in changing him, bathing him, changing his bed sheets, or tidying his room for him. After he left the rehab wing, the permanent rooms forced him to have less supervision, care, and things to do. The first time I saw him after he was moved the first time, his stuff was thrown into a closet and some of it was missing. I filed complaints but we never saw those things again, some of which were important. He was then moved two other times before he died, and by the time of the last move, his personal items were all but gone. Needless to say, I was very disappointed and heartbroken that I didn't get a chance to move him somewhere nicer before he died in that awful place. DO NOT PUT YOUR LOVES ONES AT BRIAN!!!! The place is also disgusting and the nurses on the permanent halls don't seem to like to help those who are a little more difficult. Overall, bad experience.
