Our Reviews

“My mother was at Masonic Home before coming to St Matthews Care Center. Although I do not have any big complaints with MH, the level of service at St Matthews Care Center has far exceeded my expectations. They are much more personable and go out of their way to treat their patients like family.”

From day one, on October 30, 2022, the entire staff has provided the utmost care and treatment for my brother throughout this long ordeal. From the nurses to the nurse practitioner, the entire staff has performed professionally and always answered my questions or responded to my requests.

Feels like family here. Good care and always willing to help!! Top notch therapist!! Keep up the good work!

Since November 2022, this facility is taking care of my brother with 100% professionalism like no other. It takes time to adjust to something you never plan for and the Saint Matthews Care Center Staff helped our family tremendously. I rest easy at night, knowing he is in the care of these great people. Semper Fidelis!

Very friendly people willing to help

The administration seems awesome. They have been helpful and they have communicated well. The day to day care from the staff could be a little better.

My sister has been a resident for about 20 months, and the longer she is there, the more I have discovered caring people who work there. I know that she is in good hands and that is the top priority. Thank you! I wish, however, there was a way to make her room more attractive. I would buy her new furniture but the room itself looks like it hasn't been updated for 30 years. The wallpaper is stained, the floor is stained, so I just wish that there was something we could do to make the room look nicer. The bathroom was awful when she moved in-- I had to spray paint the cabinets because they look like they were from a ghetto. And actually, most of the common spaces are in the same shape. Is there any hope for some improvements in this area? I realize this is a Medicaid facility but I'm just curious to know if there's any way we can pay to have certain things done to the rooms of our family members? Many thanks, Kathy Knotts Sister to Lisa Boswell

I like that the staff is friendly & everyone says hello. Community is an excellent description of the way I feel walking through the front door. Though there seemed to be a shortage of nurses when my husband first arrived in early Jan, mgmt developed an immediate plan of action to resolve that issue. I feel very comfortable with the medical care my husband is receiving and the fact that there is oversight in that Jonathan is checking in to ask if my husband needs anything or if we have any questions or concerns. PT & OT have a plan of action for my husband's rehab that give us realistic expectations & hope that at some point he may be able to return home. The Director & her staff are very caring, patient, & conscientious in the daily rehab process. They consider not only the body but my husband's mindset during a "work" sessions. Though my husband can be picky about food preparation because he has been an excellent cook himself for most of his life, it is encouraging to see him take an interest in eating again (after barely eating a meal in several months). He has been satisfied for the most part with his daily meals & even raves about some of them which thrills me to no end. Overall, I think we are very fortunate that my husband is at St. Matthews Care Center.

Vigilant care is given to the patient for both physical & mental health. I’m glad my mother is within St. Matt’s care. It’s employees work with compassion towards her.
