Our mother had dementia and it became increasingly difficult for her to be safely cared for in her home. We turned to Methodist Village, where the new memory care wing had newly been built, and felt she could receive quality care and attention at this facility Mom received comprehensive care ranging from help with all her Activities of Daily Living, Assist with Bathroom needs, medical exams, podiatry care, dental care, hair cutting and styling, PT and OT.
Our mother received excellent care. We felt Mom was truly loved and cared for in a family-like environment. From the CEO to the cooks, to the custodians and handymen, to the office staff and recreational persons, all knew Mom by her name and interacted positively with her in a caring way. The staff that worked with Mom day in and day out were kind and we felt provided Mom with opportunities to be as independent as possible while keeping her safe all the while respecting her as an individual. The family was always welcomed to visit and have a part in her plan of care. Even during the Covid19 pandemic, extra measures were taken to provide communication with the patients.
Overall, our experience with Methodist Village was very positive and our family was very thankful! Mom was one of the first group of people to live in the Senior Memory Care Unit; I was allowed to spend the first few nights with Mom and I was impressed that the staff gathered first thing in the morning for prayer. It helped me feel more at peace with this transition.
My Father, Noah Johnson, suffered a stroke in late 2016. Our families have long been associated with Methodist, with multiple family members experiencing various specialties for nearly 50 years. For us, those previous experiences made Methodist the obvious choice to help Noah rehab and recover. You all provided long term and rehab for Noah. Our goal was always to make sure that Noah received the best care available to help him recover physically and emotionally from the stroke. Noah could do very little when he entered Methodist. His physical and verbal skills were severely impacted by the stroke. Due to these limitations, his social skills were virtually non-existent. Over the past four and 1/2 years, we’ve watched the staff at Methodist rehab his verbal skills, which have played a huge role in his recovery. While his physical skills remain challenged, the fact that Noah can now sit with a group of others, enjoy a meal, play bingo or participate in any social function, is a testament to the culture that Mercy practices every day. This incredible staff that have shown Noah compassion and love…That’show Methodist has helped. The peace of mind our family has knowing that Noah is in a place with people that show, through their actions every day, that they are committed to him like we are committed to him, showing him love, mercy and grace, that feeling of trust has not only improved our lives, but most importantly, Noah’s life is better.
