At first I was pretty impressed regarding the care she provided for her patients. My Mother in law was a resident there for approxamitly 6 months. She is no longer there because of the staff negligence on making sure my mother in law (who had a moterized chair) was not able to leave the facility without accompanyment. Approx 20 minutes after she was told lunch would be ready, 10 minutes after she should have been at the table, they could not locate her on the property. For whatever reason, the gate is left unlocked, and anyone can enter or exit the facility at any time with or without accompanyment. My mother in law was found approx 7 hours later, stuck on a gravel road, trying to walk out with her cane and without her leg brace on. She did not make it very far, and was stuck in 100 degree temp. without any water, not far from her chair. The fact that she was able to leave the facility without anyone noticing is incomprehensable. They were fully aware from the time of admission that my mother in law suffered from a stroke, was paralized on her right side and could not speak, yet they gave her unsupervised priviledges anyway, knowing that the chances of a patient having a stroke have a higher risk of having another. I therefore, would not reccomend this facility to anyone needing continuous care.

Response: I know the woman you are refering to. Although I am sad that she has passed on, she was a wonderful full of life person. An Adult Care Home is not a lock down facility by State rule. The authorities were notifyed right away however the Josephine County Sheriffs department had adopted a policy of non responce. People that new the home responded immediatly and requested freinds and neighbors to assist in the search. One has to wonder, sence the family was contacted, where were they at this time. An investagation has been completed by the State of Oregon DHS and the facility was not found at fault.
The greef must be tremendous, but to smear and lie to somehow justify your own disregard for her care is not the right way to honor her memory.

My grandmother was an ex-resident at this facility. Unfortunately her stay was cut short when she escaped from the watchful eye of the staff from an unlocked gate at the facility. She was found about 7 hours later dead just steps from her wheelchair on a 100 degree day down a dirt road several miles away. when i visited this facility it was fairly clean except for the cloud of cigarette smoke you had to walk through on the porch to get inside the home. I cannot speak to the staff helpfulness because i didn't have much interaction with them. If you want to trust your loved one's well being to a facility this is not the place for you. How a resident can escape through an unlocked gate on their motorized scooter is beyond me. DO NOT USE THIS FACILITY.
