Overall RatingsCheney Care Center is a nursing home that sadly falls far below the norm with a concerning 1-star overall rating, placing it in the bottom 20% of facilities based on overall ratings. Significantly below the state average, this low ranking is mirrored in its 1-star health inspection rating which positions it in the lowest 10% of facilities in that category and further below the state average.

This place will be shut down soon! The owner Keith is a horrid man (if you can call him that). The residents are constantly abused and mis-treated. I had to pull a family member out of here because I feared for her safety. I wish nothing but the worst for Keith, he doesn't deserve to be in charge of a nursing home. DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE.
Absolutely rudest receptionist I have ever dealt with. Was scared to leave grandma there after just one interaction with Jamie.She couldn't be bothered to show us how to use the covid tests and was put out because we couldn't see the directions on the garbage covered table.If I could give this warden of the elderly a minus ten I gladly would do it
Nice people staff are friendly administration is great always treats the seniors with care.They have a large parking lot in close proximity to schools stores and churchs many rooms for the seniors small town but with fine medical care always keeps an eye on their seniors.
