My father is at Loretto Cunningham Nursing Home on the 12th floor. I knew nothing of nursing homes until he was admitted this past summer.

I found the staff on his floor to be very warm and friendly to my father. They all call him by his first name "Larry" and he enjoys them as well by joking back. They truly care for my father and that makes me feel very good about him staying there.

I also have never had a problem finding staff. And when I do they always take the time to listen to what I need and help me out. Even one of the employees on the cleaning staff stops in to see my father. She takes the time to check in on him and have a bit of conversation with him throughout the day.

I call my father several times throughout the week and since he doesn't have a phone in his room the staff has to answer and get my father to a phone. I have never once had anyone be rude or impatient to me. They always go out of their way to get my father and fill me in on how he's doing for the day.

I realize that the floor isn't the fashion statement of the year, but I look at it this way. At least I know that Loretto isn't spending money unwisely on decorations and fancy furniture.

I feel good about my father's care at Loretto. I have even conversed with one of the nurses that gives him his meds and she has gone over his chart with me so I'm updated on what medications he's taking.

My father has his own room which faces the city. At night it's absolutely beautiful. Again it's not fancy but it's clean and he has lots of windows in his room which make it bright and cheerful.

I know my father would rather be home, but for right now I know he's happy at Loretto. He enjoys the people that take care of him and I feel very good knowing he's getting the care and love he deserves.

I'm very thankful for Loretto.

My parent is in Loretto Cunningham Nursing Home. There are well over 500 patients in the 13 story building, 11 of which house patients.

The place is vastly understaffed. there are barely enough aides to help the residents and weekends are a big mess.

There is very little in the way of cheerfulness there. Stark white walls, dingy green or yellow floors, plain cheap wooden tables and chairs in the so called dining rooms and no pictures of decorations make it feel like a mental ward or a prison rather than a home.

The administrator is an unyielding and seemingly uncaring man whom I hope will not be in his position much longer. He fails to abide by his own patient's bill of rights.

Meals are often cold and unappetizing and there are no choices. You eat what is given to you or you don't eat, even if you're losing weight quickly.

If a patient is not a problem, things are generally fine. Feistier patients are earmarked and punished, not physically, but in other ways.

Its a dreary, sad existence and I would recommend that you find another place for your loved one.

It's too big and too impersonal to have the care and caring that a smaller place would have. The aides float from floor to floor and never bond with the patients. The med nurses are brusque and have no patience.

This isn't how anyone should spend their final days and I hope that you will truly believe when I say that this place is a very understaffed, underfinanced conglomerate that needs to be reevaluated and to hire more staff so each resident can have the care AND DIGNITY that he or she so rightfully deserve.

There are some things like activities and day trips that break up the monotony but otherwise, the residents are left to sit in a big room all together just staring or sleeping in their chairs.

There is no warmth or love or even caring between the staff and residents and the staff seems to change almost constantly.

Email me for more info. I can't go into as much detail as I would like here.

PROS: Better than being out on the street
CONS: Understaffed, impatient workers, underpaid aides, dingy, sad surroundings
