I honestly could not say I liked anything about it (most) cnas there are terrible people espcially one tall coloured women. She acts and feels as if she runs the place and she is mean. She is so unsesitive to patient and doesn't respect their privacy.

Big Elm has qualified staff who provide excellent care to the residents entrusted to our care. Our goal is to make the resident's life the best that it can be while not being at home. We also want to rehab and return to home those residents who do not need to be long-term care. We welcome concerns to be brought to our attention so that we may address and correct them. Our staff loves their residents as if they are part of their families, which they are.

Appalling lack of concern paid to residents by staff--witnessed one staff member mocking a resident who was vomiting, and unable to help herself. Residents are rushed through their meals, left to sit in wheelchairs in dirty undergarments for hours on end. If this was an animal shelter it would be shut down for abuse and neglect.
