Prevention of falls at 100 %? My father has been there two months, has fallen no less than half a dozen times and has been hospitalized twice. I showed up to visit once and found him bleeding from the head with the band aid falling off. They used a rubber glove full of ice as a cold compress for the swelling. But ok. Im not sure where usnews gets their numbers

These people are Simply the Best. The facility is kept in pristine fashion. Every single person there is so nice and they are all focused on the patients all the time. Frankly, I wish I ate there all the time the food is always freshly prepared and very very delicious. The kitchen is very aware of patients preferences and favorites. They believe in Cutting Edge practice and technology and good old-fashioned love and patience. If you're considering places like this please give a visit, I believe you will be impressed and feel comfortable.

MVH South Paris is a fantastic place with a wonderful group of caring caregivers that really go above and beyond for their residents. I had the privilege of attending a T-Ball game at MVH South Paris last summer, and it was incredible to see these veterans out there swinging the bat, and competing again. A truly great place filled with great people who care about veterans.

I can not get over just how wonderful this place is. During one of the hardest things to go through in life.. Having to decide that your parent can no longer care for themselves and then needing a place that will care for them like you know they deserve. Well... this is the place. These people are genuinely caring and they are at the top of their game when it comes to knowledge, performance and dedication. With bright faces, the attention to details and energetic personalities, they make any person forget that true independance is no longer an option. The facilty is spotless..and it offers every kind of hospitality and entertainment to the FAMILIES let alone the residents.. But the attention to caring for each person that resides here is just amazing. I hope that one day when it comes time for me ... I can find a place even HALF as wonderful. Can I move in NOW? :).......... (I love you Dad)

Yes I certainly do and have. I have had four family members stay there. The compassion and care for the residents and their families is just outstanding. We were surely blessed to have the comfort of knowing that since they could not be home, they were in the best place possible.

My mother (Lady Lee McGall) spent close to a decade in this wonderful facility. Coming to visit her over the years, I made some very good friends here. The level of care mom received was unequivocally THE BEST from the team of Angels that work here. Ever single staff member cares for and respects each client in the highest possible regard, befitting of our Veterans! This business model should be followed in every state! My deepest gratitude goes to to each and every staff member that took the utmost care of my Mom! I am forever grateful!

We could not have asked for better care for our dad for the last 10 months of his life. Every member of their staff regardless of their position or job there, were nothing but helpful, caring, patient, supportive, knowledgeable, I could go on and on. From the very beginning of the process to his very last moment, they provided Dad as well as our family all the care, love and support that we needed. There are no words to express her sincere thank you for all you did for Dad and our family. You are all very special people, not sure how you do what you do day in and day out but we cannot thank you enough. Sincerely, Jackie Bonner ( for Don Morin)
