Grandma had broken her hip, and we had to look for a rehab facility, quickly. (If you ask me, I feel pushed out by the hospital.) The hospital gave us several facilities to tour. I was impressed by the absence of urine odor in Glisan Care Center. The other 3 facilities had INSTANT urine smell upon walking in the door. (can i name them???) We choose Glisan for that reason...it was clean. Grandma got a nice two bedroom, next to a window. The nursing staff was somewhat slow at answering call lights, but not absent at answering call lights. The c.n.a's were just busy helping others. Like this one asian fella was walking and yelling in the halls, insisting on leaving. I saw two aides having to "babysit" him, as he would'nt listen to reason. Finally, his son came to calm him down. That asian fella was eventually transfered to "a facility that could better accomodate his needs", as I was told.
I didn't hear or see any other huge problems. Staff knocked on the door before entering, grandma was always clean, and nursing answered questions I had without making me feel stupid. I also brought grandmas puppy in a few times, and it made other patients happy, as well as grandma. Glisan is very pet friendly, and they dont "regulate" visiting hours.
I'd be happy to say that if grandma, or any of my family members, needed rehabilitation, Glisan Care Center would be the first on my list. Grandma seemed content, and she "lived" there for 6 weeks. She had no squabbles with anyone, except she did have a slight run-in with another patient. I guess grandma was walking too slow, and the patient had barked at grandma, but the person doing her rehab smoothed the situation. Grandmas feelings were a little hurt, but it wasn't Glisan Care Centers fault.
They also seem to retain employees well. Employee retention ranges from 3 years to 26 years...

Pros: established

Cons: Not a huge parking lot, but have ample parking on the side streets.

I read the last review from over a year ago and I was shocked that this is the same place this lady was talking about. This nursing home is far from abusive. My mom has been there for the past 4 years and I visit her almost daily and have grown familiar with the staff there. I sleep well at night, knowing she is well cared for. My overall, general experience is positive. We've had some rough spots, but the staff has listened and resolved my concerns. I understand they have a tough job and appreciate what they do. The aids work so hard and are often under appreciated. It's not unusual for mom to loose things (she has dementia and will put her dentures in a napkin and has almost thrown them away several times). When these things happen, the care center has shown concern and have helped locate the missing items. On one occasion, they even paid to replace a pair of glasses that accidently got stepped on by another patient. They recently got a new director of nursing, who I have spoken to and whom I've been very impressed with. I have recommended Glisan Care Center to friends of mine who needed a temporary place for their dad. My understanding was they had a positive experience, and their dad will ask to stop by and visit his friends there on occasion. I think it's unfortunate that people tend to only focus on negative experiences in nursing facilities and totally ignore the daily heroic efforts that are made by people who take on the challenge of caring for our loved ones that we are unable to care for at home. If I didn't work, I still don't think I could take care of my mother at home. She requires so much care and attention. I am grateful for the staff at Glisan who will do that and who care so much for my mom.

Pros: Friendly and caring staff, willing to communicate and resolve concerns

Cons: There's no place like home

Not impressed at all.
Staff rud, not clean, slow service.
Dad was dirty & his room, he & room smelled. No proper utensels when requested or trimet lift.
Left in diappers for hours. Therapy discontinued after 4 weeks. Told would never walk or use right hand again. Lost includs, $3,000.00 new hearing aids, teeth, wallet, checkbook, leg brace, & etc.
There for 5 months where family was repeated informed by staff that he could never leave yet doctor told us he could.

I brought Daddy home, & hes great now.
Walking with help, feeding himself again, shaving himself, Learning to write with right hand again.
Has put on proper level of weight again. No longer on all the downers the home had him put on.

Daddy made the rams head doorknocker at Timberline lodge in 1938. 70th Reunion was this month & he was an honored guest. One of only 6 men there. Hes 93 yrs old now. You can find pictures of him on it or on my space under my name, that is on the Timberline webpage. It shows more pictures of Timberline lodge and stuff of great interest on him & a lot of the original builders. Ps ,all of a sudden his checks where mailed after his representative was told he took it all with him when we left, (10 months ago. Why the overly positive review from someon this week & his checks mailed to him (this week), but no teeth, hearing aids, or wallet. ???? Seems a bit odd!!!!!! Id be interested in knowing if a staff member wrote that review. Ive worked in nursing homes, hospitals, and foster care. I lived in Hawaii when he fell ill & took a few months to get the airfare home. Now Im trying to figure out (How to replace his teeth & hearing aids) . I bought and old mobile home, wheelchairs, walkers, etc with what little money he did have to bring him out of that place instead of going back to live in Paradise. I couldnt leave him or anyone I love in a place that leaves you in soiled pants, bed, and dirty. Youll be old soon, make unanounced visits so it isnt you

Pros: If they hadnt lost his teeth & could use his right arm to eat with, they did have good food.

Cons: Rude, dirty, very slow, lacking in person one on one respect or care. No water ever at meals.

I love Glisan Care Center. I get a good feeling just thinking about the place. The staff were so friendly and professional. The administrator brings her dog, a mixed lab who is very gentle and cute. She visits people and adds so much to the facility. Any concerns I had were not major, and were promptly addressed and attended to. I was so impressed with the knowledgable nurses and care managers. They were able to answer all of my medical questions and put my mind at ease. The rehabilitation team is beyond fabulous. They have a huge therapy area and are incredibly competent. I would highly recommend this facility to any of my friends and family. You will be well cared for!!

Cons: The building is a little older and not in the "best" part of town.
