I love working at the Camden Nursing Facility. It's like working with family and for family.!!! I never thought I would love a job as much as I love this one!! It really is an honor and a privilege to be able to work for such a great group of people and to be able to be a part of so many people's lives. It really is a Blessing!!!
The family of Nell Martin want to thank you for caring for our mother the last four and a half months. You did everything to make this time comfortable for her. From baths to food. Mrs. Sara Rinehart has become our new best friend. We will miss seeing you all. Thank you I would recommend CNF to others who need this care.
I feel if you truly love your love ones don't put them here. They will be out of the cold and have food to eat. But the care is pathetic. The answer the patients call lights when they get ready. Their equipment is awful and not safe to use. They workers all walk around with sour looks on their faces. I felt unfriendly vibes when I go there . I had a loved on there for a short stAy . They lost some of his clothes even though his name was written in them. So once again if you truly care about your loved ones place them in a more pleasant environment. Where you will know they can receive the best care.
