As a professional who works in the senior industry, I have to commend the staff at Saint John Paul for their commitment to the patients and families they service.  The seasoned staff go out of their way to make this skilled nursing facility a true home to all of the patients who live here.  Wonderful social workers, nurses and activity staff all work together to make every day special. Kudos to this community in working with the "We Honor Veteran" program to recognize and honor their veterans.

All of you go above and beyond in your care for my parents Mr.& Mrs. Ernest Lindstrom. While my father has passed all of you made the most difficult part of life an easier one to handle. Knowing someone cared was a great comfort then as it continues to be. God bless you all of you and MERRY CHRISTMAS.

My sister has been in SJP for a year. Staff have been compassionate and humanistic towards her. Props to the Recreation Department, Debbie and Erica, for attempting to get her moving. From SW Laurie to the Receptionist Kim to the nursing/aides to the dietician/chef to financial office, etc all do their best to keep up my sister’s spirits. Executive Director Helen is very transparent during the family virtual meetingsI truly thank all for keeping my sister alive during COVID-19 and assisting her in her deficit areas.

I have been very happy with the care of my loved one at SJP over a number of years. In particular, there has been great communication and concern by staff in all departments, including nursing, therapies, memory care, and the business office. I feel comfortable with this facility because of its people.

I like how if you call 10 times no one answers. I am a general manager of a store, if I did this or my reps did, I would surely get written up or a job would be lost. I don’t see how it’s any different in a nursing home, it should be if not more important as literal lives are being maintained.

I will start off by saying that in the beginning when initial conversations were had the staff was excellent. They were so human and personal, very much conversational and caring and responsive per all our engagements, whether we had questions big or small. I was so thankful I even asked right before admitting my mother in what way/how could we ever show our gratitude and it was suggested I do so in a review and without question I agreed and wanted to make sure before I did it was well thought out. The staff in admissions, business (which I will never disrespect because especially the director of business, she is a saint) all the way up to the first day getting her there to signing all necessary paperwork, showed not only concern for our situation but interest in my mothers well being. Then the door shut.And I also want to let it be known, this is not the nursing or any immediate responding staff members who are at fault for majority of our disappointment. End of day, you can’t kill the messenger and being a human with only 2 hands, they’re only able to do so much…my mother was very much self sufficient compared her neighbors and even so due to the facility’s inability to staff accordingly, everyone is neglected. Everyone. They promise a lot and come through with little. Hardly anyone knows who is in charge of what or can help by providing a lead towards a solution. It’s beyond cruel and my heart goes out to those who may not be as fortunate to have family to advocate for them. What really motivated my review however was was disgusted I was with the service or lack their of provided by their social workers. I’m not sure if they’re in need of the right training or education but either help us or don’t. There was zero value add when it came to anything in regards to my mother’s best interest medically, physically and/or financially. Only thing we left with was more confusion, more stress and utter disbelief that humans actually treat other humans in the manner we experienced. Harsh reality. Good luck to those looking for a facility and I only applaud those helping family members during this unimaginable time. It’s unfair during such heartbreaking times we unfortunately have to experience more.The facility also needs a ton of work. During covid we were unable to walk in which definitely contributed to our blind sided experience…but just a thought maybe bring some of those dusty fake florals in your unseated waiting area to the poor human beings screaming for help right passed the non handicapped friendly double doors…I think they may brighten up at least one persons day…

Wonderful ,caring staff who always go above and beyond for patients and families. Admissions Director,Amy, is amazing at guiding and counseling patients through the process of entering their new home. SW, Laurie, one of the best in terms of anticipating patients needs. Great nursing staff who work together to provide the best care, fun and responsive recreation director, coupled with a dynamic administrator(Helen) makes this nursing home one of the best in the area.

I recently had a family member staying at this facility. The staff was very welcoming and I knew my aunt was in great hands. Their compassion knew no bounds and I took great comfort in knowing my aunt would be provided for. I highly recommend Saint John Paul II Center for families. Your prayers are answered here.
