05/27/2015 An Interested Visitor Writes: I am really not one of these people who go to sites like this but I felt a need to say . That I appreciate the staff at Granville House in the Care of my mother. I am really grateful they had an opening for her. Yes although there were thing I didn't like , they were always willing to listen , and fix it if they could. No Granville House is not perfect...... and you will never find one perfect , but the sure was a life saver when I needed them . Specail thank to Sarah the Nurse , she really cares about the resident there. She really works hard to get them what they need. The Staff has been extremely helpful , when my mom lost her teeth. We were able to find them. Although Granville House has it s issues just like any other , I feel safe leaving my mother here in their care. When we take her home with us , she always tells us she is ready to go back home meaning Granville House . That truly speaks volume to me , Thank you Granville House .

    03/10/2015 An Interested Visitor Writes: Granville House is a facility I feel comfortable leaving my Dad, The staff and Administrative staff have been great. Although is not home , and Dad really wants to go home , everyone has treated him with respect. The food may not be like we cook at home , and dad really enjoys home cook meals. That is the only area that I feel could use some help. But given they are cooking for so many the food is ok. Thank you Granville House for caring for my dad when he needs it the most.

We have enjoyed the care and the cleanliness of this facility. The food could be better , but I doubt that I could satisfy everyone myself . my hat goes off to them I am sure it is very hard.

    12/01/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: We have not been at Granville House Long , but I find the staff very helpful and the facility is very clean . The food is the one thing I think no one can always get everyone to like them same thing , glad they offer alternatives for the residents. Our loved one loves the activities and look forward to being in just about 100 percent of them. The management staff always take time if I have a question , they are great. This is a great facility, not everything goes just like I like it , but it never is no matter where you are. But they have never disrespected me in any way, or my family. Thanks again Granville house for all you do for those who live there.

    10/25/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: I have read the comments about the Granville House in Oxford. I have worked in a nursing home and assisted living homes for 23 years and if you are looking for the perfect place there is only one (Heaven) I can say that the Granville House is the best? If any one can find somewhere better go for it.


    10/24/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: I would like to say that I have enjoyed my mother being at Granville House. Everyone has treated her with respect and she loved it there. Recently, she had to upgraded to skilled care , Granville House went out of there way to help with this process. The Management team you, couldn't have asked for better. The place is always clean and well taken care of. When seeing the last post I was disturbed because I know for a fact that yes there was a room that had a problem but I know that immediately the facility took care of the situation. As you know this can happen at any facility. My mother was there for almost 8 years and never saw or heard anyone talk about it. So I feel that post was misrepresented. I just had to share with everyone that Granville House is a great place for anyone.

    10/18/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: This facility has bed bugs I went to visit my mom and seen one crawling up the wall. They have had this problem for a couple of months I was told by one of the staff members. They also stated the the head people don't want anyone to know not even their staff. Well I am in the process of finding some where else to place my loved one and I would not send anyone here.



    07/31/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Hi every one I am excited about the thing going on at Granville House , My mother has not been there long , but she is getting to know everyone . the staff have been very helpful , and care towards her, she like the food , and she likes her room mate.

    07/18/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Granville House has the worst Administrator, Office Manager and Nursing Director around. I have had several experiences with care facilities and at first thought this was the greatest place. They put on a good front when you go to discuss placing your loved one, but once they are in and the have your money their care stops there. These 3 will pass you in the the halls and never speak, their noses go right up in the air. Two years ago when Granville house had many vacancies the staff was very nice and happy to please, now that they have most rooms filled they could care less. It is all about the bucks. If you try to talk to upper staff they are defensive and say we are trying to fix the problem. It is never fixed. There is such a large turnover in CNA's an Med Tech you just wonder what is going on. They have some staff that are habitual liars and thief's. The new Alzheimer's Unit was built so fast it has many problems. It was also built for each resident to have their own room but GREEDY took over and they convinced the state to let them double up some rooms. You can barely move in the rooms when there are 2 wheelchair in a room. Some staff has no respect for the patients personal belongings. Apparently you do not have to know how to read to work there because they can not read residents name in clothes and I find my family member with other residents clothes on. If I could find another place where I could place my loved one that was close it would be bye bye for me.

    07/15/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: I just wanted to write and say I have truly enjoyed having my mother at Granville House . It hasn't always been a bed of roses since mom didn't want to go to an assisted Living community. But it has beed a delightful experience. If I had a problem I could go to Sarah and she would get it fixed. Staff were always helpful , kind, and respectful. So if you have someone that needs a place I recommend Granville House.

    06/04/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Had my dad here for 4 years, never had any problems with staff or his care. I am out of town a lot but made regular visits to see him he was very content while at Granville House and seemed to enjoy his last years on earth there. The only complaint he ever had was about the pizza, which he had never eaten at home anyway. I am currently assisting my cousins in finding a place for their mom and I would highly recommend Granville to them and anyone else for that matter. Not sure what the negative reviews are all about but my suggestion would be to visit the place for your self and talk to the residents.

    06/04/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: I have been a volunteer at this for many years and I have had a problem with this place, past or present,. After reading these reviews I feel badly for some of the writers...I haven't seen things the way you put them. I've helped in the kitchen a time or two and the staff works hard to please the residents but they have state regulated rules and menus to follow. There have been times I've offered to bring home recipes but was stopped in my tracks because of Dr prescribed diets that has to be followed to the T. I have watched the AD go above and beyond to try to get residents to come and join in on activities, spending her own money at times. I'm not going to lie nursing staff has had some issues but they never linger. I've heard the administrator and DON state that we are all here for the well-being and safety of the residents so if u can't fulfill your job and manage the oath we have as a nursing staff, we can and will replace you. This facility is one of a very few that I have visited that keeps a clean building. Never forget why the majority of your love ones are there, they forget (to dress appropriately, to go to the bathroom, how to feed themselves, to eat, etc...) so not every cone you turn will smell of roses. Bottom line instead of taking advice, opinions, thoughts from random people (who just maybe holding a grudge)the best way to make a decision on this facility is to stop by and take a tour of the place and see things for yourself....you'll be surprised to see the people are actually nice and willing to assist. The doors are open....PLEASE FORM YOU OWN OPINIONS..... sincerely a loyal volunteer for 10+ years

I appricate the staff , and all they did for him while he was there, ven tho the facility was older they kept it clean and my Dad who always said he never wanted to go a facility , said that je really enjoyed being there. Thanks again to staff, administration for all you did.

Any concerns were dealt with in a timely manner. Anytime I came to visit I was greeted by the staff with a smile. The building was always clean and I never smelled an odor. The food could be a little better.

    05/20/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Deserves a good investigation by the state. Nobody should have to live under the condition these residents live under when "nobody" is around. Yes, I have come and gone at very unexpected times & it is amazing what see.


    05/02/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: horrible experience. Negligence. The staff forgot to order oxygen for oxygen patients????? How does this happen???


    04/29/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Simply put..They are plenty of other places that are far above better than Granville House. Save yourself a headache. Care facilities have ratings online. This is a great way to start. A Place for Mom is also a good tool.


    04/29/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: THE ROOMS ARE EXTREMELY SMALL IF THEY ARE ARE INTENDED TO BE FOR SEMI PRIVATE USE WHICH I AM TOLD THAT THEY ARE SINCE MY MOM JUST GOT PUT INTO A SEMI PRIVATE ROOM. I HAVE TAKEN PICTURES AND ARE HAVEN THEN PROFESSIONALLY PROCESSED SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE FULL EFFECTS OF THE CROWDEDNESS OF PLACING 2 BEDS AND 2 LIFT CHAIRS IN SUCH A SMALL SPACE. I'D SAY GRANVILLE HOUSE IS GREEDY AND AFTER SQUEEZING THE MOST THEY CAN OUT OF A DOLLAR AT THE PATIENTS UNCOMFORTABLENESS! LESS THAN 72 HRS INTO THIS FACILITY AND I'M LOOKING ELSEWHERE!!!!!


    04/28/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Nasty!!!Carpet has wet circles and the place smells of urine. Rang bell for assistance, then went walking hall to try to find nurse. It took 10 minutes before I finally located someone by going into the Alzheimer's Unit.


    04/19/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Strong urine odor. Appeared to be understaffed. Needed assistance & it took someone almost 15 minutes to respond to call bell.


    04/18/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Always decorated for the holidays. Unfortunately it is not the decor that matters, it is the care. The care is less than acceptable, as mentioned in other reviews, probably related to high staff turn over. The rooms are very small & inadequate for 2 adults to share and according to my loved one , the food & menu are awful & redundant(mixed veggies 2-3 times a week, sandwiches, soup, pizza, all except the sandwiches being frozen & precooked .. the heat & serve variety). All staff should be required to eat the same meals that the patients are forced (either eat it or go hungry) to eat; Yes that means they can't bring food or go out & get something. I would be willing to bet that the idea of skimping with a shoestring kitchen staff (working few hrs a day) and frozen fast food would end.

    04/11/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: NOTHING GOOD TO SAY WHEN THE CNA 'S CAN'T BE TRUSTED. IF THEY WILL TAKE PATIENT'S BELONGINGS ( THIS HAPPENED 4/10/14) HOW CAN YOU TRUST THEM WITH YOUR LOVED ONE??? THE THIEVING BEHAVIOR IS NOT NEW TO GRANVILLE HOUSE STAFF.. THEY FIRE ONE & HIRE ANOTHER. IT'S A REVOLVING DOOR OR SO IT SEEMS.


    04/08/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Reeks of urine. Staff rude. Rooms are EXTREMELY SMALL considering they are designed for 2 people to share and most patients like to have a personal chair in their room . Also most patients need walker or wheelchair for assistance getting around. Food is never served hot. Save your money & look elsewhere. Contact APLACEFORMOM & they will give you names of facilities & ratings as well as whether of not they accept Medicaid, etc.


    04/07/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Maybe the activities are fun.. spelling bee's...bingo... devotional time ...singing alongs. That is probably the only decent thing about this facility , if you can tolerate the "Holier than Thou Attitude" of the AD. She use to be very friendly but I guess like the rest of the worker the environment has gotten to her & it shows. The food of the heat & serve variety and is comparible to a normal individual eating fast food 24/7.. these people long for a good home cooked meal & they pay enough to get at least one a day. Granville House needs to look at things from a patients perspective for a change instead of a greed hogs. One day you or your loved one might be in one of these facilities and you may not work here or can visit every day to make sure their needs are being met. Will you worry? Will you be angry when you do come & find them wet or their skin red & almost broke down? Will they tell you they are hungry because they do not get enough to eat ?Think about it.........

    02/20/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: The place has potential, but it it has to start was staffing. It is like a a revolving door with staff. The retention rate average is probably about 6 months tops before the CNA's or Med tech's move on to another facility. Then the facility dumps more money going through the hiring process, background checks, drug screening, training, etc. Doesn't it make sense to spend just a little more money than McDonald's pays their help and get some dedicated, caring personnel that loves what they do & is willing to work for "fair" wages, but not to be taken advantage of. I have been to Granville House when you could tell when you hit the door if it was a "more seasoned" crew working or a bunch of "Newbies", just by the way the place smelled.
    Granville House used to have a really good image as far a care facilities but it is losing steam fast. Someone needs to take time to read these reviews perhaps talk to patients families past & present & get feedback of any suggestions they may have before their reputation gets tarnished beyond repair.

    04/04/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: The majority of the staff at Granville House will walk right by you and never speak. Tell me how I am suppose to feel comfortable leaving my loved one in the care of such impersonal staff members? If they hate their job as much as they act like they do, then they should resign.I want to feel like my aging parent is being cared for . Nobody wants to give up their home to go to a care facility and the staff should treat them like they were guest or like they would want their parent treated.
    Granville House on one wing especially smells worse than any "nursing home" I have ever been it. There is no excuse.It is the urine on the carpet and urine soaked chairs that contribute to the foul smell.
    Before settling for such a facility look around..


    01/21/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: We have had and continue to have a very good experience at the Granville House. We have experienced many of the same issues mentioned in other comments in other facilities that cost twice as much. It is not an upscale facility but a comfortable home for those not ready for a SNF. The nursing staff and caregivers have been very supportive and courteous.


    11/06/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: A holding cell for death. The staff turn over rate is ridiculous.The patients need to feel comfortable with the people giving them care and attending to their needs. Before they can learn the care giver's names, they either resign or get fired which is indicative of problems with Administrative Staff,Upper Management,or Supervisors as well as poor financial compensation. Residents complain about the food; as it is mostly frozen or canned foods that are heated & served.
    When one is forced to go live at such a facility, the only thing they have to really look forward to is the redundant activities, mealtime and possibly something on tv. The tv room has maybe 15 chairs. The care facility maintains about 45-50 patients on average. About 8 of the 15 chairs are upholstered in fabric. Can you image what it is like to visit a loved one in the tv room and sit in a wet chair. Disgusting!
    Granville House has potential to be a very nice place , but until some changes are made, I put it in the same class as the other local "horror story care facilities".


    09/19/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: MY brother and I met with the administrator to see if mom should go there. Its such a hard time when you have to make those decissions. HE seemed like he understood and cared at the time. After mom moved in it was a nightmare-for every concern i had - administrator, LPN and office were rude- saying it was my moms fault. I though they were trained to handle seniors with needs. I wonder now how they stay open. Most families feel thay dont have a choice- WE DID and moved mom out in three days. Save yourslf time and trouble. Mom is now in a wonderful place and we couldnt be more happy. GH needs to get it right or close down!


    08/06/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: This was a excellet facility they treated my mom well and never have heard a compliant. The facility is clean and neat. My Mom had many friends there. My mom is know longer there because she needed SNF. i woud recommde this faclity!!!


    04/28/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: We met with the Administrator and staff when we admitted our mother to this facility and they assured us that they could take good care of her and meet her needs. She has Alzheimer’s. They were a well known facility and I have to say the staff that gave mom her meds were very pleasant when we were there, however when we would come to visit our mom on a weekly basis and our dad would make several visits a week, we would find her disheveled, her hair would look like it hadn't been washed since the last time I took her home which was on a weekly basis, she would not of had a bath in several days and she would not eat the prefabbed foods they served their patients. I would sit with my mom at the table she was assigned to and the other patients complained of the "terrible tasting foods". My 18 year old daughter went by to pick up her Granny one day and mom was sitting in the living room with her clothes on and her underwear was on the outside of her clothes. How could the staff let my mom just sit there like that? Of course when I asked they stated they were not aware she was like this. Yes, mom has Alzheimer's but what are these people getting paid for. Our father paid dearly for her care which was putting him in a financial bind. The LPN, Administrator and the financial/ clerical staff were not professional, when my mother received special assistance from Medicaid they sent my grieving father a certified letter stating they could no longer provide the care my mother needed. Our mom had gone to her PCP and he stated that our mother did not need to be in a SNF and he could not understand why this facility could not meet her needs at this time. This facility is planning on building an Alzheimer's Wing but unless they receive training in Alzheimer's or dementia or memory care and become more compassionate with the needs of someone's loved one, they would be wasting their time and money. Only becoming another facility that is in the business for the money they can make off of Senior Citizens that have worked all their lives only to end up in a place that requires the family to hire someone to be with their loved ones in order to make sure they are receiving quality care. I am in the health care profession as a Registered Nurse and the Assisted Living Facilities and SNF need to strive for higher scores than a 1 or a 2 in order to provide care for the ones we love. I personally will never refer anyone to this facility. Keep Looking!
