I have a family member there and it is the most disgusting place ever. I have walked into soiled sheets, clothing, missed meds and all the "activities" they have all the time are never carried through so they are constantly glued to a TV or their room. The workers I have come across do not seem to be there for more than the check and the lady in charge is worse! Would not recommend nor place anyone in my family there again.

    My Mom was a resident of the Thomas House for 20 months. The staff is wonderful. They are caring, competent and professional. The facility is always clean with good homemade food. The owner listens to the resident's family with its needs and concerns.

    I've found The Thomas House to have a very caring and well trained staff. While visiting on several occasions, we noted that they are very kind to all the residents. We would recommend this facility to everyone.

    A few of the staff are caring towards the residents. The owner and the young part time staff really don't put in the time and effort necessary to provide quality care. Research the records for yourself.

    Owner/only nurse there is just not around....Staff is under trained, do not take job of caring for residents seriously. Seems they are just there to put in their time on shift and that's it. Staff spend lots of time doing their own social things. Attitude seems to be that what are the residents going to do - tell on us to the boss who doesn't care anyway? Most residents are unable mentally to report anything and staff knows that, and boss doesn't seem to care anyway.

    05/20/2010  -  An OurParents User Writes:

    The staff is well intentioned but there isn't enough supervision and follow through. The owner isn't around much and there isn't enough information shared between shifts. The workers have their boyfriends/husbands hang around. I do not recommend this facility for your loved ones.

    04/16/2010  -  An OurParents User Writes:

    care was not provided in a timely matter and much stress was involoved because staff was not educated involving the residents care during end - of- life issues. Not a good place to leave your loved one.
