Took my father in for respite care in spring of 2014. When he went in he could walk, feed himself & do simple chores like take a lid off of a bottle of water. When I went to pick him up a couple of weeks later he needed 2 persons to assist him with walking. He also could not feed himself without help and could not take a lid off water bottle. He lost about 15 - 20 pounds. He had fallen while in this facility and he had never ever fallen before. He had bruising on legs and buttocks area. He also had a smashed finger. Chaffing around his groin area. Don't believe he was given correct medication. Another medication was being given everyday when bottle states "as needed". I was heart broken by how much his health had declined. I could never in good faith recommend this facility. However I had put him in a couple of years back and was very happy with his care. I will be writing a follow up after I talk with administrator.
I took my loved one to this facility in November of 2012. I was very pleased. I thought he was given the best care. However this was under different management/owners. Was not SIGNATURE HEALTH CARE. However, I have recently just taken a respite care and will be taking him home in a couple of days. I will write a follow up on or around the 2nd week of June 2014.
My father-in-law stayed here for two weeks for a respite stay. During his stay there his glasses were lost THREE times, at the third time they were never to be found. So now he has no glasses.
FIVE pair of his shorts came up missing (Starter brand gym shorts, I wonder what happened to them) and I should mention all of his clothes had his name in them! One pair of slacks and a blanket also went missing. $400 of stuff came up missing and their policy is not to reimburse for lost/stolen items!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Imagine that, must happen all the time for them to have a policy like that! BTW, I had to continue to call because "Ken" was too busy to remember to call me back because "after all he is just one person".
And he came home with bed sores on his bottom!!!!!!!!!!!! After two weeks???? Ugh! If you love your family member... UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES LET THEM STAY AT PARKWOOD SIGNATURE HEALTHCARE!!!!
This place is a joke. The first day we took him there they tried to put him in an unlocked wing. He has Alzheimers! And you should have seen the laundry room! No wonder items come up missing, it was a complete cluster!
