I am very happy here at Sheriden Woods Health Care Center. The staff, for the most part, are patient and attentive to our needs. I have my favorites, of course, but get along with everyone. The secret is keeping a positive attitude and a smile on your face. That can uplift other residents who might be less happy. Cheerful is the word for each day. <3
Sheriden Woods during the pandemic allowed a patient with COVID-19 come home without any type of notification or anything from the nurse or administrators. We have a high risk toddler and another toddler who could be infected with it. This also put us in quarantine for the 14 days because of their lack of notifications to others. This nursing home put all of us at risk for acquiring this virus with the lack of empathy of others work. These people instead of taking responsibility for their mess, blamed the insurance company.
My Mother spent the last 3 weeks of her life @ Sheriden Woods. My Mother received excellent care. The nurses, aides, dietary staff, physical therapists, speech staff, office staff & administrators were wonderful. Their skill, kindness & concern was amazing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely, Mary B.
My wife Teddi has been here since May. She has an incredibly complex medical case, and this facility has pulled out all the stops to treat her sitiuation. They have given treatments that to me have been innovative and extraordinary. Whatever your medical situation, these folks have skills and talents to handle it. My only complaint is their communication is not always 100% but is satisfactory. Also, due to covid, they are having incredible difficulty maintaining staffing levels but even still they are keeping up their exemplary work. I not only reccommend them, I also commend them. Even their management staff picks up any slack when needed.
My grandmother was sent there for a short period of time and after a month had a stroke. She sat for 2 days before staff checked up on her and it was only after noticing the food piling up (she was left paralyzed) and her not moving from the same spot did they think something was wrong. Absolutely unprofessional and incompetent.
As an elder care coordinator at Allaire Elder Law I work with many nursing homes and social workers to advocate for our clients. Cortney Graham at Sheriden Woods is a pleasure to work with. She truly cares about the residents at Sheriden Woods and has worked with our firm to ensure that our clients are treated with respect and dignity. She is always thoughtful and tries to make the discharge plan for those who can transition home successful. If there are any issues or concerns that need to be addressed, Cortney always works with us in a very professional and caring manner always trying to do what is best for the resident.
They have no compassion . When I talked to nurse she seemed very aggravated at the way my mother was acting . She was 80 and very sick. Also I went there to see my mom through window. The woman at front desk said no go home make a appointment. I started crying tried to explain I hadn’t seen her in over 2 month’s and she was not doing well at all she would not even listen to me just said very rudely go home. My mom died of massive heart attack the next morning. She robbed me for the last chance of seeing her alive. And I no of other people who have just shown up and yes they allowed them to see their loved one through the window with out a appointment

See, I study this virus and know this virus fairly well. They put a whole family at risk. If they wanted to fight with the insurance company or readmit her and notify us. We would not be in this situation and now in quarantine and losing money from work due to them.
I have a family member as a resident, right now. I think this facility is absolutely amazing! The staff here are the most dedicated, tender and compassionate people I have ever known. We have been overwhelmed with fear and sadness these last weeks but we have found some peace by what these people create everyday. This facility is nothing short of a gift to it's residents and families! Especially, compared to other medical facilities. I wish I could list every name and kindness offered here..I believe I speak for my entire family when I say....We will be eternally grateful for the care my Aunt is receiving.Every moment of the day this staff is determined for the safety and well being of not only the patients but the families as well.* I must mention the respect and love I have for these nurses aids. The patience , knowledge, tenderness and positive energy these women bring is something to be respected. These women should not go unnoticed because they are the very heart of this facility!With that said, I do believe its every member of the team!! How all these people ended up in the same building I will never know. I cannot find a bad thing to say about this homeThank you...
This place is a toilet. They don't wear gloves or masks. I was there to recover from my foot injury ..They only give you a shower once every seven or eight days and if you miss your shower day you have to wait another week. They stole my pajamas, makeup and dentures. As soon as I told them I wanted to file a police report they magically found them Whatever meds you're doctor has you on makes no difference the doctor there can do what he wants. I had a very painful operation and my bone was shaved. The doctor decided to stop all my painkillers and not tell me. I went into a horrible withdraw and I thought it was a flu and they refused to send me to the hospital. I called 911while there I begged them not to send me back. I left out a lot because it's too painful to say it or type it
