This facility has drastically gone downhill since the Franciscans and the new Executive Director and new Administrator, Michael Skirven have taken over. It is no longer an institution in providing quality healthcare to people, but an institution for making the Franciscan Community and upper management richer! Don't be fooled by the newly remodeled lobby, dining area and administrative offices (which no one sees). Do take a look at the filthty wheelchairs with non-working brakes and mis-matched or missing leg rests that the patients are sitting in, the uncomfortable and some broken beds patients are lying in, the peeling wallpaper in patients hallways and rooms, the filthy floors, the smell of urine and feces in the hallways, the garbage on the hallway floors and patients rooms floors, the call lights that go unanswered while some CNA's are standing around talking, texting on their phones or reading a magazine and the alarm checks going off and no one
checking the situation (which is the reason there are so many falls). All these things which would be important to family entrusting their loved ones to a facility and important for the patient staying, are not important to this facility! Spending ridicuous money for an updated lobby and remodeled comforts of administrative office members is! Only goes to show you were their priority lie. Some good nurses and CNA's definitely, but they are forced to practice politics in order to keep their jobs. I would seriously think twice before sending your loved one here!


Response: Well said!

Response: i use to work in the assisted living and yes! it has done down hill since Mary Riggs was there. I left after 14 years as I did feel the director was listening to the CNA. I now have to put my dad in a home and I was there recently and I was sad to see all the residents that I use to take care of in the nuring home and the unit was open. It has down hill since Michael took over.

My husband had to have physical therapy after leaving the hospital and chose this place because we live in this tow n.This is our 1st experience. I thought this was a new facility, but it's not. I feel sorry for all the old people there, it's so boring. There are no bright colors in this place. The walls, floor, wallpaper are decorated in a dead blue gray. They need some reds, and other bright colors for these people to look at.This may make them feel more alive. They have birds in cages, but there always sleeping and looking at fish just make you sleepy. There also is a bad smell, and the patients smell. I understand some wear diapers and have to have a bag on them. I didn't know until my husband came home that you can only bathe twice a week. Tuesdays and I think Friday and the showers are not in the room. The showers are also locked. I think that is awful. No wonder my husband smelled. When you get old, you tend to smell like sour milk and daily hygene should be a must. I do have to say that the staff was very friendly and were very nice to the patients. If your family member must be there, surround them with some bright colors and request they be bathed more than twice a week. It was very sad for me to see this and I hope I never have to go to a nursing home.

My mom had knee surgery and had rehab in the healthcare center. She wasn't sure enough to move back home after Medicare stopped paying for rehab and had a seamless transition into their short-term respite room (fully furnished, beautifully) in their Assisted Living. Since then she's sold her home and moved into The Prairie; their 55+ community at the back of the property. She and we couldn't be happier with the entire experience.

One star is for the very few exceptions in staff (therapists and a few others) that were caring, compassionate, encouraging, and helpful. Moving our family member to another facility. I believe healthcare providers and caregivers should give the type of care that THEY would want to receive and would want THEIR OWN FAMILY to receive. Clearly not the case here. Overall terrible experience.


Response: The new Administrator and nurse educator brought on in 2010 has made a huge positive impact. My mother had knee surgery and rehabbed here and we couldn't have found more caring, compassionate staff. Not the case when a neighbor had a similar stay in 2009. Leadership starts from the top and filters down and I think you'll be impressed with what you now find at Victory Lakes.

Response: My mother received superior services here and I would go here. It's not the newest and shiniest rehab in the area but the exceptional staff, ranging from rehab professionals (PT, OT, etc.) to the nurses and housekeepers and food service staff, were friendly, helpful and clearly worked as a well-honed team. Take a closer look. You'll be impressed. That's why their number of people served is higher than average.
