Adequate, just barely. Severely understaffed with medical personnel; patients wait longer than they should when requesting assistance. Social worker provided NO assistance, contacted us on Day 2 then 12 wks later, two days before departure, but provided no helpful information. One or two nurses should not be working in a facility for the elderly; they intimdate and act rudely. No method to keep family in the loop of care/progress/problems, etc. Obtaining this info was difficiult.

Mostly mediocre. Staff is minimal, so everyone is over-worked. Most staff members are pleasant and helpful, especially therapists. Patients wait too long for response to call buttons. Dining area is cheery and menus are reasonable. Delightful inner courtyard for resident and guest use. Cleanliness is adequate, not exceptional. This is a "for-profit" facility, which is evidenced by reduced staff and services.

I had a very good experiance when I was at The Oaks about 6 months ago. The staff was very good to me as well as the Administarative staff. Everyone was very helpful. When I came into the facility I was afraid I would not be able to walk out but with the wonderful staff I was able to walk out and go home on my own. If I had to come to a facility I would come back to The Oaks all over again. Thanks to the wonder staff members of this facility.

When this facility changed ownership the care went to
the dogs. If you have a loved one look for a better place. Issues are not changed timely, meals left in
halls to get cold, basic hygiene ignored like cleaning
dentures etc. Staff says they have no supplies when
you ask for a simple wash cloth. Phones are never answered at the desk and calls are not returned when you need to speak with staff. If you do not care or check on your loved one then the rooms are bigger than most. Food below par and you never get what you ordered if its any different that the normal menu.
After many complaints nothing is done but lip service.

Much has been written about the Oaks. Let the truth be told. When we were sold to Liberty Health in May of 2011,we took a nose dive. Management,sucks. From the administrator on down to the cna staff. The showers are filthy!!!! As to how the manager of housekeeping has kept her job, only heaven knows. One of the employees is begging to get fired. He is sorry like a mud fence.Another one comes in at 5am and sits and drinks coffee until it's time for him to walk around and spy on others.
One thing that surpasses all others is the racial prejudice from one of the Nurse Managers,Linda. She is beyond rude. Although she does a good job of trying to hide it.The fact that there are some nurses who really care is shot down by the others who don't care.
The aids have very little to work with for patient care.The work load is beyond strainous. Sometimes aides must take care of 19 residents!!! There is noway that they recieve top care.Third shift aides are the best workers there. It has a different flavor of concern
We have to answer the question What is becoming of America's health care?. The Oaks is just one small cog in an ever growing crisis that focuses on making money.Would I recomend this place? Hell no! If I am going to spend $6,000 plus a month; I
would expect the best of the best. Why not come by and see for yourself.

Response: My Mother came in to the oaks before it changed hands.The first 2 mths were great and then the switch happened.almost within a week things went downhill.My mothers dentures are left in nightly.I find her wet beyond belief.Never a wash cloth to be found to wash her face with She rarely gets a shower because they say their out of hot water or short of help.She has personal items that are missing.I reported this and it was brushed under the rug.How can a facility operate like this?

Response: How sad to spend that much money for people to give a person poor quality of life, most are at the end of their life. You need to keep on reporting this place and get new administration and workers in their. There only needs to be people working their that have a passion to help people. How sad people treat other people, and when they get old they will get the same treatment they are giving. God sees all.

Response: Linda is so horrible she should be fired immediatley!
But like everything else there they do nothing about
abuse to families or patients.

The Oaks offers patients short term post acute care and long term services. They have attentive in-house physical, occupational and speech therapy. The facility has an active pet therapy program and is a vibrant building.

Response: Who is paying you for your assessment?

Response: This is a joke. No therapy unless paid for by Medicare or Medicaid usually after a hospital visit.
Who ever wrote this must have been paid for sure.
Some of the staff are decent but most sit around talking and not working and definitel do not answer call bells timely. They simply do not take care of the simplest things for the patients and do not care.

Updates are needed with furniture. Often there is a smell of urine in the halls. Administration is friendly and helpful. Some CNA's have attitude problems. They need more parking spaces. Food is average..just not much choice.

My uncle sat for 1 1/2hrs waiting on assistance to go to the bathroom. He pushed his call bell and someone came in and cut it off telling him that she wasn't his assistant but she would "pass it along". After and hour and 4 pushes of the call bell he was told that if he pushed it again they would take it away!!! I then stepped in and told them that they could come help him or I would call the police for elder abuse. We will be moving him this week.

Response: This is terrible that our elderly have to go through this. This happened to my family years ago and we got the administration terminated as well as the staff. I can't remember who we called but i know it can be done. We stayed at the nursing home all the time and saw these same things.I will pray for this place.

Response: Oh this sounds so true. My mom presses the button and no one comes for a long time. This is a very dangerous place unless you check on your loved one
often as we do. We want to move our mom but no where to move her too they all stinks! Our country should be ashamed that this is allowed. They just want old people to die. What happened to people who take pride in their jobs?

07/16/2011  -  An OurParents User Writes:

Nursing staff is very kind and they try very hard. The food is fair, but often the dietary orders are not followed. The housekeeping department leaves a lot to be desired in the way of cleanliness and attitude towards residents. Many of the housekeepers are very rude.

Response: Why don't take her home.
