Funny, I thought the same thing after reading your comments.

Actually Fredonia place serves three meals a day, at least the memory care wing (I can't speak for the other side), and the food is worlds better then the food served at the County Home.
At the CH as many times as not dinner consisted of a sandwich, either PB&J, or a scoop of egg salad, tuna salad, or some sort of ground meat and 2 pieces of bread.
One would think that for the $8k+ a month they charge that they could do much better, especially since Fredonia Place charges less then half as much but serves better quality food and meals.
The memory care wing also have more staff, but fewer residents then on the ground floor unit my family member was in at the CH.
Yes FP isn't a medical facilty and yet the care my family member recieves that is worlds better then what they recieved at the CH (which there basically consisted of tossing them into a wheelchair and sticking them somewhere out of the way.)
and darkside get your facts right about the home and fredonia place. they do not get the care there and they get two pick only two meals a day and pay for the rest. yes that would be profit. the people at fredonia place have to be able to care for them selves somewhat and is considered assisted living vs skilled level care. love when people think they know it all
with the national gov. lowering the reimbursement for medicaid medicare i think we should understand as a community it is necessary for us to try to keep the home public. there are other ways to try to obt. the money. donations could be set up in fund to keep the home going. so the tax payers that can not afford to pay 16 dollars a year can let the ones that do care contribute more. we should pull to together not segregate. we paid for an 80 thousand dollar survey to help us. we need to give it an other year or two and see if some of them work. and then in a couple years if we do not break out even or go in black then we would be more marketable and the loan on the home will be paid down more. and as for Mr. Rothner he is a shister he is a money man with a lot of words. thank you mr horrigan for the research of mr rothner's few homes he does run alone. but there is always two sides to every story. and in conclusion money talks and well you know what walks.... amazing right
