Part two...mother finished therapy at Wyant. I was very happy with the service and treatment there. But, as these things go, she wasn't allowed to live independently anymore, and she must live in a nursing home...which is what Wyant is. If I had left her at Wyant as a long term patient, she would have had to share a room upstairs...a small,darkish room, dreary, without a view. Her fellow long term patients were for the most part, severely disabled physically and mentally. I couldn't see having my mother, an alert person, spending the rest if her life in such an environment. It's not the fault of the staff that Wyant is the old model of a nursing home, but while the care is good, the surroundings are dull and there is very little to offer the able patient. I moved mother to a more modern facility nearby where she has a private room even as a Medicade patient, and where others are alert, even tho they are in wheelchairs...people like my mother. I was told by a staff member at Wyant that they are going to convert a downstairs wing to private rooms and generally upgrade to keep up with the trend if making it more modern, but it hasn't happened yet in time for my mother., yes...but Wyant long term is not so great...except for the staff of course.

Response: As a nurse at Wyant Woods Care Center, I greatly appreciate your comments regarding the care the staff gives to all our residents. I have been employed by Wyant Woods for a long time, more than 15 years, and would not continue to work there if I didn't enjoy my job. Thank you for noticing and appreciating our hard work.

Response: To the original poster....Where did you end up taking your mother? I have a similar situation with my mother and would like to move her to a single occupant room that is modern and have some younger people as well

My mother entered Wyant to rehab because she has Kaiser Permanente health insurance and rehab is covered there. I read the reviews. She had been there in previous reviews and couldn't wait to get home, but they did get her back to functioning. But stay tuned...yesterday was her first day. Imagine our surprise...gone is the dated decor. Gone is any odor. The facility seemed fresh and bright. Mom has a private room...many of the rooms are now single occupancy . Every single department...dietary, laundry, maintenance, nursing, aides, therapy, even the CEO made a point if coming in and introducing themselves. THEY COULD NOT HAVE BEEN KINDER OR MORE HELPFUL AND RESPONSIVE. It was clear that their attitude was that they are there to serve and
care. I will add to this later as the days go spent the first 20 days at Concordia, a 5 star facility, and didn't have this kind of attention to her issues. Maybe Wyant is getting a bad rap unnecessarily????????
