This past weekend, a Friend of McHenry County Blog was vehement in her defense of the management of McHenry County’s nursing home, Valley Hi.
I asked her to write down a bit of her observations. You can read them below:
My Mother is a resident at Valley Hi and I feel strongly that she is being very well cared for.
I find all staff to be very helpful and friendly.
Everyone keeps me very well informed on her health condition, activities she does, and even the chef, who cooks for all residents manages to tell me what she eats or doesn’t eat, and what he can do to help her eat better. Really….
We visit often and have come to know many of the resident’s, so it’s not just my Mother, all the residents are well taken care of.
Everyone should follow the staff for a day to see just what they have to do and with smiles on their faces.
Now let me address the scabbies issue.
Valley Hi did everything they needed to do to treat everyone including their staff and families.
We had notification constantly every few days.
I was in contact with Valley Hi and my Mother all the time and everyone was happy to let me know what they were doing and walk me through the process.
Can’t imagine how much work that was times every resident, cleaning bed linens, clothes, shoes, showering and medicating everyone, not once but twice [a week apart to make sure to get any eggs that had hatched after the first treatment].
If everyone who uses their computers to find a good restaurant or vacation spot took 5 minutes and did their homework they would have discovered Valley Hi was doing their job!!
A huge “Thank You “should be given to Valley Hi for their services and the dedication of all who work there.
At each of his Town Hall Meetings, Jack Franks rants about poor management at Valley Hi and how everyone will be “held accountable.”
