I have visited family and friends at this nursing home and I really appreciate all the staff does to make this home for the residents a healing place for them. It is never easy to take care of patients when they are going through hard mental and physical changes. I saw a caring and compassionate staff that cares about their patients. Seeing loved ones health decline is very hard for not only the family or friend visitor but also for the staff. Not only that but when the residents pass on, not only is it hard for family and friends it is also hard sometimes on the staff who loved them.It takes special people to care and show compassion to their residents and it is a spiritual gift. I want to personally thank each and every one of you in taking on this role. You each can make a very positive and uplifting experience for each resident there. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking on this special mission to help others in time of need. Sometimes that need will be over the top but yet you are there! Thanks so much again for all you do staff! Continue to be a light for them. God bless you and the residents you care for. Galatians 6:2 Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

The nursing staff at this "Five Star" home is a nightmare, particularly a nurse named Cheri, who lets her 12 year old daughter dress in a doctor's coat while the elderly patients treat this child as though she's a doctor! The night nursing staff has seemed disrespectful and lazy at various times. The attitudes of staff are many times completely different when they realize someone is there and watching. Honestly, if THIS is the Five Star living they tout, I'd rather die.Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, transport staff, and Medicaid Admin staff is wonderful, the patients are incredibly touching but the nursing staff are discouraged from revealing too much about the patients to their families. I did not however blame the nursing staff as they seem to be more than afraid to discuss any physical or mental complications due to fear of reprisals from above. The food is downright AWFUL. Numerous things stolen or gone missing and little to no response when an inquiry is made (which of course I understand is quite common in many nursing/rehab homes).Food is often taken from patient's trays by other confused dementia patients. Servers of the trays (nurses or aides) report 80-100% eaten when another patient wanders by, scoops a tray up and empties it in the trash without anyone even noticing and that poor elderly person has not had one bite. I can't count the number of times I've caught a resident falling over with not a single nursing staff member in sight. It really is uncontrolled mayhem. It is SO frightening to see them advertise FIVE STAR REHAB. Almost as frightening as some of the angry-elderly walker-crashing boxing matches in the hallways.Truly, this is NOT somewhere you would want your loved one to be. Had there been an option for 0 Stars, that would have been my rating. Do anything. Hire a private aide, apply for Medicaid, get assistance... do ANYthing you can to ensure that you won't have to put your loved one here to "heal" or to live out their lives.
