I am glad Mercy Place and others will be reviewed . I have expressed my concerns to Mercy Place Abbotsford where my mother is as I'm not happy with the complete lack of process in place that puts residents at risk . My mother nearly died in Feb this year due to the complete neglect . My mother has been there for last ten years and was in better hands under the Good Shepherd system . Since it's purchase by Mercy - has gone completely downhill . I plan to voice my concerns (I have aleady to Rose and manager ) to RC .

If you are independent and still able to feed and toilet yourself, it is a wonderful place, but if you need care to be fed and toileted, then please do your research as the staff are doing their best, but very stretched, there are often shortages, with two staff carers for about 18 to 20 people, and the poor wonderful nurses do a valiant effort, sometimes caring for the whole ground floor of over 35 people PLUS UPSTAIRS (the mainly hostel section) if someone falls ill and help cannot be hired in time. All are very well intentioned, the atmosphere is great, people friendly, but URGENT NEED for Registered Nurses (NOT PERSONAL CARERS with Certificate to give Medications), this is a very serious issue for many homes, so please do your research, and try to check the resident to Nurse ratio for High Care needs, our Elders deserve far far better than what they receive when corners are cut, and management refuse to acknowledge the need for more staff for the HIGH CARE people. We need to have accountability of staff, to honestly record incidents, to call for help and inform families. HELP is URGENTLY needed for this facility but I do not know who to share this with so the others left can not have to suffer the long days in uncomfortable chairs, the lack of time for preventative measures like cream on fragile arms and legs, for toilet wait not to be one hour and a half , though these things happen at so very many nursing homes, they must still be addressed, it is a TRAGIC situation in many homes, but where to get help? Please do your research, do not believe web site info as it looks so attractive, but rather : VISIT, SIT, WATCH the interactions between staff and other residents, SEE if YOUR RELATIVE will COPE, DO not settle of 'OK', keep looking...

This residential age care is in a good location. Its facilities are excellent - found out that the residents here are always kept busy like entertainment, excursions and birthday or anniversary celebrations not mentioning religious worship. The staff are excellent and residents are looked after 24 hours!.
