    This place might have its flaws, it is a state nursing home. The employees do not get paid much but my God have they treated my mother like family. Most of them anyhow, some she does give the finger to when they walk away. Growing up my mother did not have friends, she made us, her children, her friends, then her grand children. This place treats her like she is a star. She is low maintence because she can not say much so that helps. My mothers main wish in life for so long was just to be left alone so if they are slow to get to her or do not jump right away that is ok with her. Can we talk about the renovations for a moment ? OMG. Listen, my mother did not work her whole life because of a sleep disorder she did not get the proper help for. She gets $600 a month from survivors benefits and this place now looks like a 5 star hotel. SHe has never stayed somewhere with beautiful new furniture and hardwood floors. I can not believe the transformation. All in all if your family member does not want someone to say "how high" when they say jump, if they are ok with things not always happening right when they want them to happen and if you can visit to make sure that you can be their voice this place is great. They really treat their patients like family-- sometimes a mother that they do not really get along with all the time but hey! It reminds them of home!!! I really enjoy that about the Simpson House. Shout out to Dee and Deb-Or-Ah and MIss Gloria and all the therapy staff. My mother loves you all and you have made me cry over and over with your kindness, thank you, really. Thank you

    My experience working here is a joy. The residents I work with are pleasant and the staff here strives everyday to promote a dynamic working environment. We are one big family at Simpson House!

    Simpson House is a wonderful Senior Living facility. The staff is extremely friendly especially in Administration. Walking down the halls you feel a sense of warmth and family. The staff members are attentive and the care is excellent. The facility is clean and inviting.

    Not enough staff. The residents are left alone for a long time. Not good if they need help going to the bathroom. Gave two (2) stars because most of the staff workers are nice.

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
