We have been met with nothing here at the Parry Center. They have a very qualified staff that have been college that work with the children. Our son is provided with three meals a day, and he get snacks if he is on a high enough level depending on his attitude and the way he handles situations. He has his own room. He likes the staff.
He loves that they have a program that is hands on working with horticulture. He has his own garden there and loves to show us each time he is there.
He is able to go outside with staff and ride his riptide if he maintains a level of trust. They also have bikes there and a gym that he loves to go shoot hoops as he likes to say.
They have a very good staff from doctors to counselors. We have weekly communication with the counselor, and the doctor calls when they feel they need to change meds to get permission. The staff calls if there are any worries about our son and let us know in a reasonable amount of time if there is ever an emergency or issue with our son. This is his fourth time to be in a facility and this by far is the best that we have seen. We know that if anything was happening, or our son felt abused he would let us know and there is nothing like that there.
It is so hard to be away from our loved one in the first place, yet as parents we need to go outside of the box and do what is best for our child. I am confident in his treatment there and them taking care of him if I am not able to at this time. I would love to have my son home with me. Until that can happen, I know that he is in nurturing hands of people that do care. He is learning life skills there that we see great strides in. We also think that while his meds are regulated, it is the safest place for him.
I would recommend this facility to anyone with similar needs to what my son has.
