11/08/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My mother, 93, has been an invalid (lifted by a crane, etc.) over 4 years, and she has been a resident in the highest level of Health Care at Southminster about 7 years. She is cared for with great love and care. The staff responds quickly to any complaints, comments. They want to be excellent. My father was still pretty-much "with it" during his several years in this Health Care. I was always asking him how he liked it, and he always responded he did. Prior to their living in Health Care, they lived in independent living since 2001. They loved it.
Although I live out-of-town, a brother and a sister visit about weekly. When I go I stay in a guest room, and thus, show up at all odd times and hours.
We are very satisfied with the fine, care. Although an invalid, my mother is fully dressed-to earrings-each morning before she is brought from her room.
She is taken to the beauty-parlor in health care once a week. She is fed at a table, 3 meals a day. The soundings are lovely.

Nursing care facilities cater to several types of patients: some patients require short-term rehab while recovering from surgery; others require long-term nursing and medical supervision. In addition, some nursing homes offer specialized care programs for Alzheimer's or other illnesses, or short-term respite care for frail or disabled persons when a family member requires a rest from providing care in the home.
