Well fact being it happened. And no it was not at Willow Care where it happened. She stole it none the less, regardless of where it happened.

I worked there and its not one of the worst places, but the Drama is real....and rampant but that is a general scene in 99% of all Medical establishments. The employees bicker, backstab, and they will climb over each other for attention and they will place the blame of any wrong doing on the current target of the week just to take blame off themselves. They gossip, most are two faced and the majority act like they are in kindergarten or highschool......the sad part is that most are over the age of 30 who behave this way. There are several employees however that are there because they care. I got to work with some good people and one of them is a supervisor. I haven't been there for a little while but the care isnt sub standard for the most part. And just because people are childish doesn't mean they are mistreating the patients. The biggest issue I observed there is the drama and how its encouraged and accepted but the people in supervisory positions there. Its a sad situation when the "boss" ia gossiping and feeding into the drama with the employees who are the cause or start of it.

I find it interesting however that there are several comments from employees on here that are known to be drama feeders etc .......if there is any question go in and visit with some of the residents and spend a day try to be unnoticed and observe for a few hours and make your decision there are problems in every nursing facility, don't make your decision off of other's thoughts and feelings, make them off your own. A persons instincts and intuition are some of the best tools we have, go for a visit and then make your decision. I do agree with alot of the things the other person who said they were an ex employee however, that person is giving truthful information.

I think it's a pitiful shame that we live in a society where our elderly "have" to be put in a nursing home. What ever happened to respecting and caring for our elders, instead of trying to find a place where they would be less abused or less miserable. I have worked in nursing homes, I have seen people who raised families, built businesses, educated themselves reduced to crying, cowering, confused lumps of flesh. There doesn't have to be blatant abuse or cruelty, just the loss of home, family and routine can devastate someone. Just as we are too busy to raise our children, we are too busy to care for our elders in their final days

You are absolutely right. We live in a throw away society.
We throw away everything, including people. After all, what else can you call putting someone in a nursing home and leaving them
there alone? It really used to bother me when these wonderful old people never had a visitor from week to week - except maybe holidays when their families visited for a little while.

The family members felt virtuous because they had given up a few moments of their precious time. It never seemed to occur to them
that their "loved one" was in a strange place separated from everything they were familiar with, having to make adjustments that no one should have had to make. How would they like to have someone snatch them up and say, "Ok, buddy, you're gonna live
in half of this room now with someone you don't even know. You
will eat what we say, not what you want. You will live on the
schedule we set. Oh, by the way, you're on your own now, so you'd
better get used to it." This is reality. Yes, there are loving and kind nursing home staff, however they can't make up for the
sense of loneliness and abandonment these people feel.

Just had some help from the Nursing Home, thank you for all your caring people, advise,love, cleanliness, good food and most of all some very special people who seem to like the residents and their jobs. I'm glad to know you are there for me.
okay

i just have to say the housekeepers need to step up on their job. When you walk in to a residents room it should not smell dirty after they clean it. They have one housekeeper that is really lazy and she doesnt clean very well. I have seen some of the crap the CNA's do and its shameful. Theres a few CNA's that dont wear gloves and dont wash their hands and go on to the next resident. If you call state they let the nursing home know before they come. What state needs to do is make a suprise inspection and go through that place. Meds have been stolen and people steal out of the break rooms and out of residents rooms all the time. I see residents that dont want to be there but they make the best of it. They need to really look into CNA's before they hire them. It seems kind of funny that WHC cant keep CNA's very long they either quit or they transfur to a different nursing home. If i was loooking for somewhere to have my loved one stay i would look somewhere other then WHC or any nursing home assoicated with WHC which is Mt view or West plains. If you want your family to be somewhere clean Willow Care is not the place you want your family to stay.

I know alot of people who work in that place. And they will tell you it's nasty and they only work there for a paycheck.They don't care about the people in that place they talk bad about everyone in the place. And the place is going broke because the residents are dieing out or familys are moving them to better nursinghom's

WC is a very lovely nursing home. I know people who work there and there is a bit of drama between the employees (but honestly, what place of employment doesn't have drama?) but there are employees who truly do care about the residents.

They have churches of different varieties that come in every week to do worship, they have activity time, bingo, they even have beauty salon days where the residents can get dolled up.

They remodeled the entire building last year and it is very lovely and cozy. They have little parlor rooms with birds and a TV and puzzles. Residents can go outside whenever they please to enjoy the weather.

But every worker that I know agrees that WC in Willow is the best facility that is owned by WHC, Inc. But don't let strangers online sway your opinion, be biased and see for yourself whether or not Willow Care is up to your standards.
Yes

Seriously? Over half of the "positive "You comments on here are written by either the Admin or DON or someone they gave a "bonus" to write something. Or one of their little "pets". The nursing home was remodeled yes, but as for employees etc? If you dont bow down and kiss butt or let them trample all over you then you dont fit in. I know for certain of a couple CNAs who were repeatedly "abused" verbally by staff and when they tried to approach the issue were written up pr punished for it. And I know of a few Nurses who were treated horribly because they were not liked by other staff! Their work was excellent and they were dependable honorable employees but because they didnt just lay down and take the abuse they were treated with disdain and when tried to talk with DON or Admin the people in those positions were repeatedly over hears Gossiping about these employees who were only looking to seek a better work environment. I am a firm believe that if you are in an administration position and an employee comes to you in confidence about something whether it be work related, personal, or medical that you respect yourself and the employee or employees and address any needed situations with tact and professionalism. However that is not the WC way, its more fun to blatantly disrespect and disregard each person for your own pleasure. Never have a seen a company who has so many employees who enjoy and feed off of others pain and misery. Sad really

Those housekeepers do a wonderful job!! Try cleaning like they do!! Pee in garbage cans, pee on every peice of furniture, pee in the corners on the fake shrubbery! Its a flippn nursing home, no matter how well its sterilized, the rooms WILL smell! Give them more credit, housekeeping is hardwork, especially in a nursing home! Complain about the two faced, backstabbing drama queens that bring their problems around our parents/grandparents. That has got to stop. Professionals should not be more concerned about their image than their residence. Its nonsence, and not what we are paying them for!

Both of my parents were at Willow Care. They received kind, compassionate, and loving care. I cannot imagine where they would have received better care. I am not a staff member of Willow Care. Shirley is a champ in my book.
