Not Pleased With This Community
My father isn't doing the best here at this community. It is not completely their fault. He was misdiagnose with dementia. We were paying about 5000 dollars a month and it was not a good experience. I really feel like they took advantage of us. They want residents that really don't do anything.
Nice people, not a fan of the layout
We toured this facility while looking into care options for a loved one. Sterling House seemed like a nice enough place, it was clean and the staff I met were friendly and professional. However I didn't really like the layout of the facility. The entrance area opened right up into the dining room, there wasn't really a lobby area to speak of.

Looking to save money not give needed care.
Not designed for older people with multiple issues. Understaffed. Mom fell a number of times, about five over the year. Medication was often found on the floor or in a cup on the night stand-several issues with that (dementia). There were numerous staff changes which led to inconsistency and lack of care. Little follow-up to meal needs and noted activities-not doing what they advertised. Great R.N. at the beginning of the stay-changed to LPN who did not have the same knowledge-base-mom should have gone to emergency room but unable to pick up on health issues. CNA's unable to follow protocal to tip off the LPN to issues. Mom sat in a chair a lot. No encouragement to participate in activities which seldom took place-no exercise or stimulation. Not always able to get assistance when taking mom out-on break or unable to find.
AFC licensed facility can house up to...
AFC licensed facility can house up to 20. Bedroom with average size bath and kitchenette. Furniture provided or can use your own. Many organized activities available. Do not know about religious opportunities. Residents are checked every 2 hours during the night. Need to inquire about other security measures. On sight medical care, test, and therapy available. Facilities were bright and cheery. Saw several residents moving about.
