I have worked in the care home now going on three years and to whom ever posted the false statement above . Maybe you should get the facts of what you post about ALF on this blog. Since you say that we are not looking after our cluents the way that we should then why in the hell are we still in operations ? Also just some fyu for you all , its not a locked facility and they have just as many rights as you and i do ! so please keep in mind that when you post things , please post nothing but the facts !!

I HAD A NEPHEW WHO STAYED AT CANTERBURY HILLS IT IS NO WAY FOR ADULT CARE IT IS FOR THE MENTALLY ILL. I HAVE PULLED UP AND SEEN THE RESIDENTS TAKING A CRAP IN THE FRONT YARD AND PEEING IN THE CORNER OF THE BUILDING.THE ROOM MY NEPHEW WAS IN HAD NICE CRAP IN HAS DRESSER AND ON HIS CLOTHES IT GOT SO BAD WE FINELY TOOK HIM OUT. THE TRUTH IS THIS PLACE SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN THIS IS ONE PLACE THE STATE GOT IT RIGHT IT IS A IMD. I CALLED JIM SMITH AND HE SAID HE WOULD CALL ME BACK NEVER DID HIS VOICE MAIL IS ALWAYS FULL SO YOU CAN"T LEAVE A MESSAGE. IF YOU CARE ANYTHING ABOUT YOUR FAMILY DON"T LET THEM GO THERE. I HOPE THE STATE CLOSES THIS PLACE DOWN. THERE JUST OUT FOR THE MONEY!!!!!

And just where do you people think these mentally ill clients are supposed to go? Off the planet, so you won't be bothered by the scenery? There are places that assume the responsibility of this kind of work and you should be on your knees in gratitude that there are. Otherwise they would be living in boxes, piled up in the emergency rooms or beside your grandma in nursing homes. Good for canterbury for taking people everyone else wants to throw away like garbage. And for God's sake, get for freaking real PLEASE.

Wow! An 4 years later from the date of the original post here, the community is STILL having serious issues with this facility!! Are you kidding?? These residents ARE right beside our grand parents because Canterbury does take in ANYONE.. The RAPISTS, CONVICTED MURDERERS, PARANOID SCHIZOPHRENICS!.. The list goes on.. Then they cannot do not receive the care that they need. Meds are mismanaged, they are not fed and they are out crapping in neighborhood yards for our grand parents and children to see. We are SICK of this place and the mismanagement there!They are not up to the challenges they take in and they are completely negligent and careless of how it affects those of us in the community. SHUT IT DOWN!! Before someone gets hurt or killed!

I would also like to add that at this point the community does not care where they go. We have had it!!! We are too busy trying to save ourselves from them while they're breaking into our homes, exposing themselves for our children and all to see, approaching our children, asking for money, beating down our doors pitching their schizophrenic fits at all hours of the night... So no, we don't wish them harm, but we no longer care what happens to them. We can't afford to because we're too busy trying to protect our families and save ourselves from them!!!

It is much worse than you think. Canterbury Hills is a powder keg waiting to explode and if you check the records has almost cost the life of one man. Despite the fact that a patient at the home tried to kill another and drugs flow rampantly through the home nothing is done to stop the maddness. There are patients that regularly send other patients into our community to buy drugs, homes have been broken into, and while the home says it is Their Right to go into our comminity where are our rights. We are being forced to leave and cannot even sell our homes. I have talked to many in the home that relate how bad the drug situation is and this is coming from the staff and patients. I had tried to contact a Mr. Smith but was told he does not work at the home any more. Meeting after meeting has done nothing and the situation never changes. After doing some research at the goings on of this home i am amazed that more people have not stepped up to get something done about this mess. Staff at the home have told me that "bad patients" are merely rotated to other homes owned by the company and then back after things have cooled off. When does it end.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
