Nothing about this facility is good. Every aspect of it is extremely poor. The administrator Brian McCormick doesn't know the first thing about running a care facility. He will tell you just about anything you want to hear just to get you out the door. I swear the guy has memory loss he doesn't remember speaking to you about anything and acts as if he doesn't know who you are when you come back into the doors to follow up on the complaint you made. You can tell by the way he carry a himself that he has no sympathy nor care for the patients or even the staff for that matter. He is purely in the business for the money and that's it. A business such a healthcare demands caring people and he is far from it.

This facility does not really deserve any stars, I'm saddened to say. I've lived in the high desert since 1988, where this facility is located. I have several cna friends (certifed NURSES assistants, they are the ones who actually do all the hands on care of patients) who have worked there in the past. All of them quit because they couldn't stand seeing the neglect. In fact one of them told me a horror story of an elderly woman who was choking and her roommate kept calling for help. When my friend went in to visit the woman who was asking for help (my friend was no longrr working there at the time but was visiting this lady), she notice her elder friend crying about her roommate that no one came in to check on. When my friend looked over at her friend's roommate, she had already passed away! My friend was hysterical! Apparently she told me the roommate was choking and it was to late. You may want to investigate them with the state and ombudsmen before considering working there or leaving a loved one in there.

Apple Valley Christian Care Center is an amazing facility to send your family member, between Acute Care Hospital and Home. We have very loving and compassionate staff, who are here 24/7. Our facility is clean, and free of odors. I would recommend our facility to anyone in need of skilled nursing care. :)

Response: This place is totally the opposite of your review. You know very well that this facility neglects their patients. I have seen neglect with my own eyes. I am in the process of filing a complaint the the dept of aging

This establishment is unprofessinal. One younge lady was taking a personal phone call and the other one was just playing on her phone while I needed assistence in the room, and after standing there and eye contact was made still the younge ladys had no need to help or ask if I needed anyting! When i asked for more water she said I already gave him some water when he got here mind you that, that was over 3 hours ago. And proceeded to tell me that there was still ice in the cup, like he was supposed to eat the ice, or wait until it melted. I felt they have no conserating for other peoples needs, I do understand that there are MANY other people ther that need help just as well as my father did, but i ask them to just act like there are on top of it! First impressions last!!!
