User Reviews

12/28/2014  -  An OurParents User Writes:

I am sorry to say that of all the nursing homes and care facilities I have had the opportunity to visit or work in during my 25yrs of professional health care, the Lackey Convalescent Home is the worst example I have witnessed. I am especially sorry to say that I have a family member who is being "held" there. The odor meets you in the parking lot and the entrance is lined with the poor inhabitants in wheelchairs/chairs, with staff manning the front desk, and no hint of medical "care". Has the MS State Health Department ever visited this facility?
