One week in and we couldn’t be happier. We will update this post later; however, only a substantial lapse (in one of the dimensions below) would lead us to consider moving our loved one. My son and I undertook a rigorous process of finding a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) that was appropriate for my wife of 55 years — e.g., staffing levels, skill sets, range of care programs (PTOT, LTC, Memory), service levels, enrichment programs, ease of access, quality controls … even the quality of the food. Our initial list of Medicare approved and 4/5 star rated (on medicare.gov) SNFs totaled nearly 30 within a 20 mile radius. We then spoke to an extended personal network of Therapists, Nurses, and friends & family who had first hand experience with SNFs. After this, our list narrowed to nine (9) SNFs. Of these nine (9), we drove by /stuck our head into registration desk (to snoop around amidst Covid restrictions) and read hundreds of online reviews (google, yelp, and even job posting websites for employer-employee reviews). Following this our list quickly narrowed to four (4) facilities on the East / Northeast quadrant of the Columbus MSA. Smith’s Mill Health Campus was far and away our #1 choice (with the others clustered as distant #’s 2-4). We consider ourselves to be extremely fortunate and have had these feelings validated with each and every interaction with the staff, facility and our loved one (wife and mother). Thank you SMHC!
