My father was unfortunate enough to be placed here.. He was sent to the ER and we were told after he had not had food or water.. He was very dehydrated and malnourished. He also had to be cleaned by the ER staff as he arrived in the ER "dirty". He went from a semi-walking, talking individual to a hallucinating, incoherent man. I wouldn't send my dog there!!
I have been caring for my elderly mother for the past three years. Recently the decission had to be made to put her into long term care at a nursing facility. A facility in Mansfield Ct could not remember or care for my mothers needs after beting there on three separate occasions. I decided to take a tour of St. Joseph Living Center facility in Windham, Ct. The minute i walked through the doors I knew this was the place I knew would care for my mother in the manner in which she deserved. Every staff member there treated my mother and her entire family with complete respect and dignity. Every effort was made to make my mother and her entire family comfortable with her her care. First my mother was matched and put into a room with another woman that was also as caring and respectful as the staff. Although my mother's stat there was a short one, in all the years I have been caring from my mother, I have never experienced such loving care for the eldery, and especially my very ill mother, by any other facility or Doctor and I did release many. Although the loss of my mother will be difficult to bear for a very long time, the thought that I will continue to remember is that she was cared for in such a manner that will warm my heart for as long as it takes for me to recover from her passing. St. Joseph Living Center, in Windham Ct was everything I expected and more. I will for ever be in their debt for allowing my mother to pass with dignity, grace, and most of all the love from God, her family and the staff she was entitled to. Thank you very much. God Bless you all. From the family of Sophie Farr, died October 22, 2012
My Grandfather just passed after 4 months at St. Joes. We could not be more grateful to the nurses, aides and doctors there. Every minute of every day they were kind and attentive, loving and professional. It made our experience of watching a man we love so much go through the ending process so much easier to know they were there with him. Christina, Sam, Olga, Nina, Chuck, Dr. Pietro and Dr. Leech (and others I cannot remember names now!) particularly make it a place of peace and love.
