My mother, age 93 in a hospice program until just recently, was a resident of the Sterling House from about April of 2010 to the middle of November 2011. We chose this facility because it appeared to be a nice facility with the services we required and we were told by an acquaintance who was also a part-time employee of the Sterling House, and The Sterling House management that they had only asked 2 people to leave since they had been open, one because the resident required a tube feeding and the other was an aggressive male that was problematic. Not having to move my mother was very important to me as this would very traumatic for my mother. We were asked to move my mother early in September of this year because if / when she has fallen it takes 3 to get her off the floor. Needless to say, this was very disappointing to say the least.
Other issues include:
1. Medications – one of the employees setting up medications for distributions was observed by my brother once and my brother and me on another occasion having a personal conversation on her cell phone while setting up the medications.
2. The doctor that was contracted to serve the facility was unavailable to speak with for over 2 weeks. No one else was covering or him.
3. Those who worked closely with the residents were very hard workers, however some were not well trained and not appropriate for the job, meaning not physically strong enough.
4. I think a high turnover in personnel is not uncommon in this industry however, it seemed higher than what I would expect making them short handed much o the time.
5. Ala Cart pricing – run as fast as you can from this type of pricing. Average cost in Tulsa for Assisted Living is $4000. Our invoices fluctuated from $4000 to $6000 as time, once without notice. Family members of other residents have similar stories. I can only take their word for it, I haven’t seen their invoices.
6. Salon Services – We requested her hair be done every week. Couldn’t get this to happen, management and hairdresser each pointing the finger to the other one.
7. Newspaper – For those who subscribed to the newspaper, the paper was delivered to the office to be distributed to the residents. This seldom got done, I finally canceled the paper.
I think the overall issues lies with either the local management or company policy.
The good news is, she has now been moved and is actually doing much better than expected, getting more attention, requiring less services, out of hospice and for less money.
