Avoid Lifecare! My grandmother, who had alzheimer's, was there for a very short while and ended up with bedsores, was practically comatose, and never checked on. Fortunately my mother and I went everyday to feed and care for her. We moved her to Ivy Hall as soon as a bed opened up and she was treated like a queen. The bedsores cleared up immediately and she came out of her comatose state.
I highly recommend Ivy Hall and I also hear that Asbury in Johnson City has a good reputation, as well. Good luck to you.

the best nursing homes in elizabethton are Hermitage and Hill View. I worked at Life Care and Ivy Hall quit and went to Hermitage, the place was so clean you could eat off the floors.

PineRide in Elizabethton is one of the areas best.They have a outstanding rehab department as well. I had a close friend who spent 6 weeks there & loved it.Its a smaller facility, but clean & friendly staff.

No Dr Clark is just the medical director. She is awesome. But if I need therapy then I highly recommend life care but don't go if you are very sick. Broke hip or arm for therapy is fine.

Worked at life care, it was horrid, I spent my entire shift trying to play catch-up for the lack of care given during day shift, and when I would tell someone of the shape my patients were left in, it wasn't a priority. I loved my patients there and tried my hardest to do right by them but with the lack of care from others it was impossible.

Ivy hall and hermitage are amazing places.
thanks

I've worked at all the nursing homes in Elizabethton at one time or another. In my opinion Ivy Hall is by far the best...followed by Hermitage. Pine Ridge and Lifecare are the worst. I would never have my family put in either one of those.

Roan Highlands Nursing Home in Roan Mountain is excellent! Clean - residents are cared for - personnel really have a passion for their job - they love the residents and the residents respond -the adminstrative staff is never too busy to talk to you about anything - nothing but good words and high praise for this facility - I know it is not in Elizabethton but well worth the extra miles. God has truly blessed this facility in every aspect and in every way.

Always drama at hillview,It is more important to look pretty than it is to do their job(MM).What about the cleaning staff?There are rumors that certain supervisors are messing around with their male staff and it appears to be true.Favortism is on the rampage as certain staff gets the days they want off as well as the job they want to do.As I visit my mom on certain days of the week I have noticed that there seems to be backstabbing and everyone is working against each other and the administrater just turns a blind eye to the situation.

hillview has the worse staff.you cant trust them.josh cannon is bi polar.some of the patients are really neglected.i heard there could have been some big law suits.the stories i have heard.i talked to a cna and she reported another cna who was doing things to the male patients and they said they would have to catch them.well it took a while.what about the patient?how many more times did the patient have to endure things.they need to clean house.

Polly u r telling the truth, about Hillview, the only reason Josh got to be administrator was when he uncle owned Hillview, and Hermitage.I cannot beleive he is still there, u r right Grace Healthcare who owns it now, should clean house, get rid of all of them. When patient rings their bell for assistance, it takes 10 mins. for them to go to the room and see what the need, the reason for this is they r always short handed, I saw in the paper about 2 weeks ago, where they where going to add another addition, I feel sorry for those patients, they cannot take care of what they have now, let along another 30 patient.
