This place is a mess and a new fancy remodel will not help turn them around. Staff talks to residents like they are children. All the good staff have pretty much left and I don't blame them. Administrator just sweeps things under the rug or tells you what she thinks you want to hear but never addresses concerns. She takes absolutely no responsibility for anything. I never see her out and about the facility. The times I've been there when she is she is just sitting in her office most of the time with the door shut. She will go to family meetings to make a big show and is always super fake during them. I know for a fact that one time a nurse worked a 21 hour shift! When it was mentioned she just shrugged it off and really didn't address it. Makes me wonder how often this happens and makes me fear for resident's safety. Every time I come into visit at night or weekends the residents are just all positioned around the front lobby area staring at each other or parked in front of a TV. Such a sad place.

This is not the place for your family member if you care about them. I saw residents treated like children, without consideration for who they are as people. Falls and injuries are not properly documented and this has been investigated. Medical orders are not followed. There is a significant amount of turnover among the staff and the management alike. When you report these things to management, the care your family member receives becomes worse. Be very cautious before considering this for-profit facility to care for your family member.

My husband recently became a resident of Glen Oaks. Having been a caregiver to him for four plus years, it was an emotional time wondering if I did the right thing and feeling guilty, to wanting him safe, and in a caring community. After touring and talking to the personnel at Glen Oaks my fears became less and less. It is a very clean facility and everyone of the workers there are so kind and caring and always answer any questions. The awesome thing at Glen Oaks is that all residents have access to a courtyard in the middle of the facility and there are four entrances and exits to it, so the patient will always be able to come and go at their leisure and never feel lost. Also, the main inside door to Glen Oaks is always locked, obviously; however, it seems to me like a normal door and not a huge double door which to me seemed intimidating like some other facilities I looked at. I feel I chose wisely in picking Glen Oaks to care for my husband, and have been very happy with them for the last two months. My husband, for all practical purposes, has adjusted to them as well and really likes all the employees there.
