We placed my father-in-law in this facillity's locked dementia unit. To say that they have special training for dementia patients is a big stretch. We got the impression that they only wanted residents who were no trouble or required little to no extra care which was not the case with my father-in-law. They told us that his wandering and trespassing into others' rooms was a problem and put him on additional meds without our knowledge. We came to find out that the meds. they put him on make dementia patients more anxious and the problems escalated. They eventually, after only 3 weeks 4 days of which he was in the hospital, kicked him out while we were on a brief vacation. They told medical staff at two hospitals that they were not taking him back before they mentioned it to us. We received no assistance in finding new placement for him from them and they also "blacklisted" him saying he was violent so no other facilities would take him either. After now being in three hospitals which have all stated he is not violent or combative and had not displayed any signs of being so, we can not help but think that Stratford just didn't want to deal with someone who needed a little extra attention. All hospitals have told us that he has typical conditions for his type of dementia. Although his type of dementia is rare, his behavior for his type was not.

Three times in a row when we visited, we noticed his trash can was full of snack wrappers. Each time we told the staff he was diabetic they acted like it was news to them. On two doctors visits his blood sugar levels were in the 280-330 range. We had been managing it in the 110-120 range for several months before he was moved to Stratford.

I would not put anyone I know in this facility. Their care for him was less than satisfactory and their compassion for us was non-existant.

Response: I am new to this web-site.
I am appalled at the negativity someone can write about such a fine Nursing Facilty and with that be offered a rating on its' quality.
I know personally the facilty, its' employees and the extraordinary care they offer.
I would personnaly rate this Nursing Facilty as outstanding.
One needs to consider when reading such negativity, motives, (and) who might write such (potentially) damaging comments.
One should only decide for themselves, by reviewing for themselves, the facility itself, in making such an important decision of admission to a Nursing Facility.
I would hope that this published web-site negativity would not deter anyone from seeking such fine care as the Stratford facilty can offer.
Respectfully offered--

Response: After reading the review posted on Nov 23, 2009 I am appalled. I just want to remind everyone to not judge Stratford Nursing and Rehab Center based on a disgruntled family member. I would be upset as well if my family member had not been allowed back to live somewhere but I would also look at the circumstances involved before calling a place unfit. I encourage the people writing the review to also be more forthcoming with the dementia diagnosis and the behaviors displayed....just because the behaviors displayed were typical of that type of dementia does not mean that they were appropriate, and not negatively affecting others. If the staff said he was violent, the documentation would support that. I also would encourage family members to visit often, that way you know what is going on and can keep in communication with the well trained staff of the facility. Please before taking the review to heart, visit Stratford Nursing and Rehab center and see for yourself!

Response: This is a follow up to my post regarding the poor care my father-in-law received at this facility. It has now been 6 month since my father-in-law was removed from this facility. He has had no problems or displayed any violence at any of the other facilities/hospitals he has been in since this one. The current facility tells us frequently that he is a very happy resident and they enjoy having him there. He has frontotemporal dementia and the typical issues that go with it. Yes, it is more challenging than a typical dementia. He is not on any additional medications than what we had him on when we were taking care of him outside of any care facility so his behavior is not altered by medications. One of the hospitals he was in made a good point when we were discussing our situation. All of the other dementia units in Central Iowa are full with waiting lists, why isn't this one? There were more open beds than occupied ones when we were there. My suggestion to this facility would be, do your research more thoroughly on people and their conditions before you put them through the ringer that we were put through and show compassion.

Response: PS My motive for posting is to give anyone else who is walking in our shoes the help and heads up they may need when making an already heartbreaking decision for a loved one.

Response: Well once again to the users who are reading this follow up be sure you do your homework prior to admitting a family member into any long term care facility.....DO NOT SOLEY base your opinions of a facility on this persons review. There are many happy families and residents residing in the Stratford Nursing and Rehab center. I once again remind family to visit their loved ones often, and visit with your family members and friends that come to visit to see what their opinions are and what they are seeing at the time of their visit. Also be sure to return any phone calls from the facility so there are no surprises to you! And before running a place down, do your homework and know what you are talking about, do not discredit a facility because of your situation.....are there others with this issue at the facility or just you?
