If you read this review, you will think twice (and no more) about ever placing your loved one in ""Celebrate Today"" rehabilitation facility in Salem, Oregon. Recently, my grandfather suffered a massive stroke in Salem, Oregon (June '08). I'm the oldest grandchild of 7 (28 yrs old) and we're very close. To watch him undergo the debilitating pain of a stroke is a heartache. Upon hearing the heartbreaking news that my own Grandad, a man so gentle and respected among family, friends, peers, etc. was mistreated and ABUSED at this facility, I was shocked. You would think that healthcare professionals that enter into this field of work would actually intertwine ""care, concern, and compassion"" into their daily responsibilities of caring for patients like my Grandad. In fact, the opposite occurred. My Parents/Gran are very near in proximity to this facility. In front of their very eyes, they watched as nurses (who, mind you, are not even required by the state to get proper training necessary for adult day care provision and usually have no medical background prior to working at a foster home) refused to feed my Grandad for hours when he woke early in the morning, as he's done his whole life (as if you can change someone who's 76!)...hours he went hungry...AND, as they verbally abused him by telling him he could not leave his room when THAT WAS HIS NEW HOME...how would they have felt if someone came into their home and mandated what they can and can't do? Especially when my Gran is PAYING for this care. Lastly, the workers at this facility (since we can't call them nurses or ""professionals"" for that matter) verbally disrespected my Mom and Gran to their faces by talking as if my Grandad had no decency as to request food when he was hungry or to get out of his room due to boredom, and, to my knowledge, they never once apologized to them for their lack of professionalism. My Mom had to stop one woman from giving him the WRONG medication for crying out loud! Stay Away!
Cons: Read my review: poor care, lack of training, lack of respect, and unprofessional
