I had been warned by a former family member of a resident that this nursing home was all "show" and very little substance. Yet, it was close to my home and I felt that I could monitor my dad's care despite the home's reputation. It is a full time job doing St. Mary's job. When you bring a legitimate issue to the administrator she is a dud and an intimidating loud mouth who tries to blow you off. The ombudsman rep from the state even alluded to the same fact. If I had to do it over again I would put my dad in another home.
Probably one of the most difficult things to do is to put someone in a nursing home. This past year my mother entered this facility, and so far I am not impressed, in fact I am so disappointed that the Camden Diocese would allow such incompetence to go on in this home. From the top down it seems that no one takes responsiblity or is able to give a complete and honest answer about my mother's condition. I have come in and found her in urine soaked diapers, and wet clothing. Many times she has her lunch or dinner on her clothes or all over the table. Did someone take the time to feed her? Its a mess and the asst. admininstrator turns a deaf ear and does not want to hear it. Call the state and she will hear it loud and clear. I can only go in every other day, so if you put someone here be prepared to visit quite frequently and at all different times...you will see it all.
