Three years ago when another family member was in this facility I was very happy with the care. In the last three years this facility has deteriorated immensely. They are understaffed, leadership is obviously lacking. Most decisions appear to be financially based. The facility is rundown in comparison of what it was three years ago. My relatives room was dirty with no liners in their trash can and dirty tissues under the bed. We had numerous meetings with the staff in regard to the treatment plan with no follow through and little regard of our request. Their own staff publicly admit the the facility has deteriorated recently. There seems to be a lot of attention spent on profit with little on care.

Response: Shepherd of the Valley-Boardman recently completed an extensive renovation creating all-private rooms and remodeling the therapy gym If you haven't been to Shepherd in Boardman lately, you should drop in for a visit and a tour.

The facility was clean--never smelled of urine or feces in rooms, hallways. Had a variety of activities that were nice for patients. Nursing staff/aides were friendly but not as attentive as needed. Found it necessary to contact ombudsman for advocacy and guidance--especially regarding therapies (or rather, LACK of appropriate therapy) and accomodations necessary for patient to request help.
