In 10/16, I was very pleased to transfer my mother from a long-term care facility to Sharon Health Care Center. My mother and I were not satisfied with the level of care she was receiving at the prior facility. The staff at Sharon were very helpful and kept me informed on a near daily basis of their bed availability, and once a bed became available, the admissions staff made all the arrangements for transporting my mother and also set up and did the transport. The staff greeted us by name as soon as we entered the front door, and they welcomed us. Her room was bright, neat, and very clean. She was given a bed next to the window which overlooked their lower level courtyard; very pretty and nicely maintained. My mother needs a wheelchair as she is not able to weight bear on her lower extremities. She needs to be transferred by staff from bed to the wheelchair and back. At the prior nursing home, a slide board was used which didn't make my mother feel safe. At Sharon, they use a Hoyer lift which allows for a much safer transfer. After some time, my mother was approved for a power wheelchair, which allows her so much more independence. Once in this chair she can go where she wants, i.e., the sitting rooms where there are books she can borrow, newspapers she can read, and other residents she can socialize with. She is able to go to the dining area at lunch time (she has her breakfast and dinner in bed, but this is her choice), and she is able to take herself to the therapy room when they work with her. This independence is a wonderful privilege for her. All of the staff in every capacity (housekeeping, maintenance, medical, therapy, social services, financial, and administrative, etc.) treat my mother with dignity and respect. My mother is unable to speak above a whisper because her vocal chords are paralyzed due to radiation treatments she received for Lymphoma. The staff all fuss over her and talk with her every day. She enjoys these people and enjoys their joking and friendship. I try to visit my mother almost every day, and I, too, have developed a good relationship with the staff. I was a patient myself at Sharon Health Care Center in 4/17, and again in 3/18, for rehab therapy due to having both of my knees replaced. I was treated very, very well and have no complaints. My mother is 90 years old, and it is very comforting to me to know that she is receiving excellent care. I can't thank these people enough for their excellent care shown to my mother. I highly recommend the Sharon Health Care Center to anyone needing short/long term care for their loved ones.
