    As a former employee I can say that I worked house keeping and I truly enjoyed my job. I would certainly work there again if I could. With that being said I can also say that when they fired me they called my sister to deliver the message, so she came to the house to do so and when she arrived she couldn't believe what she saw. Both ankles where swollen to the size of a small canalope but she helped me to get in the car and drove me up there so my supervisor could see I hadn't called in for no reason. My supervisor said oh well she was firing me to set an example to the others calling in on a Saturday was not going to be exceptable for any reason. I should have fought it but I couldn't afford to see a Dr at the time so I excepted my fate. But when my grandmother was admitted there the treatment she recived was fantastic simply because my mother and my sister made it clear that they would never know when they would show up. Which was everyday but never the same time and more than once a day. When grandmother's time was there the nurse who took care of her was truly awesome with her as well as the family. Would go there when it's my time. And again I would work there again in house keeping given the chance.

    I am totally undone by this place. For the most part we love the people but being nice does not get the job done. It costs $750.00 per day to stay in this place. They do offer a guest tray for meals because there is no cafeteria or place where families can buy food other than in vending machines and then they give you one pancake with a note that says "no bacon for guests" Come on. No therapy on weekends. and during the week it is hit and miss. Some days the therapist actually have said they are too tired and some days they give 10 min and some days 20 min. Nothing is consistent. Even the meds we have one treatment due every 6 hours and some days this comes once. Some days there is help every 2 hours and some days every 6 hours. One of the halls has 20 patients and at night there is 1 nurse aide. I am stunned by this whole process...$750.00 a day and what do you get? I want to call the state but does that help or do they just slide by and nothing changes...staffing is poor and the staff changes frequently...somehow I was expecting more and better.............

    The staff is friendly, helpful and genuinely cares for the residence. This facility has a wonderful family atmosphere. I would highly recommend this facility.

    Nice inside, Terrible management. It's remodeled very well, but isn't enough to cover up the unfairness of the staff. As a family member of a previous resident, they never kept the same people around that we liked. Also, hearing how the nurses talked about/to the workers really surprised me. No listening or communication skills what so ever. Besides some of the workers, the food was the only redeemable aspect. It's just the head nurses that seem to lack in the area of bedside manner. I do not want to risk my parent's last few years with an inconsistent and rude staff. I wouldn't even recommend anyone working here unless they wanna be gonna be gone in a month for "not having the proper well being". ?! That's actual quote from a head nurse after asking why they fired one of my parent's favorite workers. No better than Grace Living Center.

Compare The Number of Problems

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
