When it was time for my mother to be discharged from the hospital I was given the usual list of available rehab/nursing facility. It was right before the 4th of July weekend and I called seven places on that list, only to have two call me back. One was Julia from Althea Woodland Nursing Home & Rehabilitation, not only did she call me back and invite me to visit the facility, but she also went to the hospital to visit my mother. (That spoke volumes to me). She took the time to assess my mother’s and my needs and or expectations. Julia made all arrangements with the hospital for my mother’s arrival and they allowed me to come in prior to set-up her room.
Due to the fact that this was my mother’s third visit to a nursing facility….since she had her stroke two years ago. And the other two experiences were horrible!!! (night terrors; bed sores, laying in vomit, wet for hours, informed of her discharge date the day of her discharge). I knew firsthand the only way to see true facility (minus the smoke and mirrors) was to visit my mother all times of the day and in the middle of the night… And due to prior experiences, sometimes I just needed to lay my eyes on her!!!!
I found the staff at Althea Woodland to be warm, welcoming and informative. The staff never portrayed themselves as if this was just a job and they were there to do their eight and hit the gate. The facility was always clean free of urine smell on both floors even were the permanent residents resided. If you rang the bell and there was going to be a wait, someone from the nursing staff came in to advise the reasoning for the wait or to see if the situation could wait. The phone was always answered and/or phone calls were always returned in a timely fashion. Whenever a doctor’s appointment was made for my mother a member of the staff always accompanied her. Other rehab/nursing facility sent my mother alone with the transportation driver and I was never even informed that she was leaving the facility!
The activity staff at Althea Woodland always had something going on, not just a colorful calendar of events. I personally witnessed residents’ in the hallway going to the multipurpose room, residents’ playing cards, listening to music, cook outs and bedtime rituals. My mother informed me of ice cream socials, movie nights, pizza parties and all types of religious services.
My mother was at Althea Woodland for a little less than ninety days for rehab. They’re rehab department was amazing, my mother is now strong enough to transfer to a chair and sit up for hours without complaint or pain. To see my mother regain some mobility and her confidence is AMAZING!!!! We furthermore found that the confusion did come from her stoke, but from her inability to get the air out of her lungs, causing CO2 build-up in her body. At the other two facilities I had to visit my mother daily to insure her well-being and daily she cried when I had leave her… At Althea Woodland my mother insured me that she was ok so I didn’t have to visit her daily. My mother was so well taken care of that she cried when she had to leave!!!! She may not remember everyone’s name, red head, honey roasted peanuts, pony tail, ladybug, short guy, bib guy and list goes on. Yet she speaks of them all with such fondness.
I ’am truly grateful to the Woodland crew for taking care of the person who took care of me!!

    Althea Woodland Nurshing home is under staffed, as one reviewer commented the evening staff is the worst, they need help. My father is a resident there, and he has fallen twice out of his bed. He is totally disabled so his falling was completely nurse error, he didn't just roll out of bed he was placed incorrectly in bed. I don't know what the problem is but the residents at Althea Woodland need and deserve better treatment than that. We are working now to get my dad placed somewhere else.
    I visit frequently, the staff are very friendly and attentive when you bring issues to their attention. BUT my dad on the cold floor unable to move or get up on his own is totally unacceptable.
    Althea Woodland facility is old and needs to be updated, and when I say updated I mean completely, new windows, the plumbing is bad and toilets backed up, the painting is old and chipping, its old and it smells in there from the front door all the way to the basement. The basement is an old dirty basement. They don't need top of the line, but the residents need newer, better living conditions. Not just to look good, but since the residents live there, it should comfortable. It may look presentable on the outside and the small lobby area, but take a closer look.

    Almost every nursing center, just like a hospital, that I have been in, sooner or later has had a negative event or staffing challenges. However, I have to say that this center has one of the best customer service presentations. Everyone is so kind. While the center is small, you immediately get that home-like feel. It is not the newest facility. But it is surely one of the best.

    My main complaint is that the evening shift is chronically understaffed. Once when at the nursing home in the evening, I saw a woman essentially lying down with vomit coming out of our mouth. When I told a nurse, she was not that moved and did lots of other things before finally tending to the woman. Part of this was the lack of help she had. She was caring for most of the entire floor by herself! Others were no where to be found. If you use this nursing home, be sure to do random evening checks on your family members to see what's going on with them.
