It was a non-profit entity that operated on a non-sectarian basis. It was the first Methodist church in the United States built specifically for this purpose. The chapel, named for T. L. Hunt, was chaired by him on the board of trustees. R. A. Young, Jr., meanwhile, chaired the building committee. The other board members were: W. A. Downum, David Conyers, Dr. Will H Mock, W. P Connell, Elmo Thomason, Dr . Harold Wright , Roy Martin and Stanley Evans

Our ASCU Community will provide a home for those individuals who are no longer able to live independently as a result of Alzheimer’s disease, or any other form of dementia. Our goal is to provide the best possible care for our residents, as if they were our own loved ones. We want to support them through every stage of Alzheimer's and other related dementias.
Respite CareWe offer short-term, overnight stays for individuals needing care arrangements.

When you need a break, respite care is available for Assisted Living, Alzheimer’s Special Care and Long Term Care.
RehabilitationThe Rehabilitation Center provides a wide range of rehab programs, including physical, occupational and speech therapies.

My family and I want to give a BIG shout out to Matthew Holloway!!! He is a compassionate and caring person who cares about the residents. He helped with our loved one when she was having a hard time adjusting since she just moved in. He talked about one of her favorite past times with her (gardening) and brought her ice cream (she loves ice cream). It helped to calm her nerves and he made sure that we knew we could count on him for anything.
Methodist cared for my mom with respect. During her 16 months as a resident, the staff gave her dignity that Parkinson's had stripped from her. Being a family member that had never had to admit a loved one into a nursing home was tough, but Methodist eased that hurt and guilt by their daily love and laughter. In my opinion, the road leading into the facility should be paved with gold bricks.
They pull the CNA's to other halls forcibly and that's against the family policies since you have to be pulled once a week to a different hall, in addition they have residents with Covid-19 in isolation in one hall, limited equipments, rude aids and nurses, plus they lie about hiring, they get people in they know without following the protocol, using interventions in the hiring process, they don't respect the residents demands, such as keeping their favorite CNA in their hall to take care of them, it's a factory atmosphere not a facility. They don't respect the rules especially with residents that require two aids assistance, they use the lift singularly without taking precautions.
It's all about the money now! Not only has this place become disorganized over the past few years but the administration is trying to increase their financial gains! Gone are the days of the non-profit status as they make their way to becoming a corporate, for-profit home. The people in charge are no longer committed to providing the staff needed to ensure proper care of our precious elderly. Teeth aren't getting brushed! Showers are being skipped! Patients are not being fed properly!And still they put out a facade that they care! The staff are doing the best that they can with what they have, but are told they are sufficient in number and more help is unnecessary. They used to hire based on keen thoughts and through knowledge. The staff always had such propensity to care. No longer does the administration worry over the quality of their nurses only their numbers. They tell the staff to be thankful that they are working the way that they are, because comparable 'for profit' homes in the area are working that way too. Let's just say it's better for their business if they don't have to pay more people to 'pick up the slack' of their already over worked CNAs and caregivers. The staff are left with no recourse but to accept their circumstances and your loved ones are the ones to suffer the consequences.That one star rating on Nursing Home Compare is well deserved and accurate for this facility!If you have loved ones at this facility, check in on them! Compare for yourself the quality of care they say they are getting against what the facility says they are. Hold them all accountable if you find discrepancies!If you are considering a home for your loved ones, stay far away until they can stop hiring their friends where they aren't needed, and instead start hiring more staff to take the load off of nurses already doing the work of two or three. Stay far away until the CEO and current administration start following their mission statement and not their greedy noses!
I find that the only people that leave reviews anymore are the ones that are mad. I usually don't leave reviews, but I felt the need to because Methodist was a wonderful experience for our family. My mother was there for therapy. The staff was always kind and caring. The staff treated my mother like she was their family--not just a patient or a job. The therapists were wonderful. They worked hard to help my mother get better to return home and were always very nice and encouraging. I highly recommend Methodist to everyone!
I don't want to make this long and drawn out but I'm sure it will be. My grandparents recently stayed there for some rehab to get my grandpas strength up to get him walking again after a recent heart attack. Well the rehab he received was just short of ridiculous. One day they had him stand up for a whole hour of course he got weak. He had a stroke 15 yrs ago which left him paralyzed on his left side. So then they start giving him puzzles to do, no walking so he could reach his goal of coming home. He has to be able to help himself as much as possible so it's not so hard on my nana. So he finally gets to come home on Christmas and walked about 16ft by himself which my nana, boyfriend and i all witnessed. He returns to this so called rehab and tells them that he walked on his own. Their response was to tell him that he didn't he just thought he did. Now I'm sorry but that just really pissed me off! This place is about getting that check and thats it. Not rehab of any sort. So if that is why you are entering this place you might look elsewhere. The staff is nice but no real physical therapy to get one back on their feet and their independence back what so ever. Plus they are short staffed in ' RNs and P.Therapists. Definitely would not recommend.
