Nursing Home Reviews for Elderwood Of Scallop Shell At Wakefield

April 22, 2014

I am a friend or relative of resident

This is the worst nursing home I have ever been to. My father was a resident at this facility. The rooms are very small. My father fell the first night he was there with no attentive staff to help him. The staff is unhelpful and very rude. My fathers health was worse after he left than before he arrived at the Scallop Shell Nursing Home. I do not recommend this facility to anyone. I would give this provider with zero stars, but I'm unable to select that as an option.

I visited this facility

Working as an EMT in Rhode Island for a private company for quite a while, I have seen more than my share of nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. Scallop Shell is not exactly luxury, but it's better than many. When walking inside, it does not immediately smell of urine or general uncleanliness. Furthermore, the residents of Scallop Shell are generally friendly and happy, which I consider a good sign. The only thing I find the facility deficient in is having a more attentive staff, and better security. It's very easy to slip out of the nursing home without anyone noticing or being concerned, which could have very serious implications for residents suffering from dementia or Alzheimers disease. The residents I have transported to/from Scallop Shell have rarely complained about it beyond what is to be expected by an elderly person who is no longer living at home. Another sign of a competent nursing staff is present when the lack of transports to the Emergency Room from the home is considered; rarely do the elderly residents fall and need to be taken to the ER. Knowing a nurse that has worked there for years, it's apt to say they may not be the most enthusiastic about their jobs, but they certainly put the residents' safety and well-being first.
