My mom and I put her Boy Friend, Walter Schmeltzer into this Nursing home/ rehap. We was told it was just for rehap and he would get right out. but once they found out Walter had 9 homes they would not let him out. They have abused and neglected him for a year now and we can not get anyone to help him. No one seems to care about old people. I called 6 news and they did not seem to care and did not help us get Walter out. We called ombusbmen, the State Board and even the white house but again no one seems to care. We even went to the Newark city mentings. We seemed to not get heard. Walter has been their a year now in his right mind. Begging to go home. !! They gave him 9 + pills a day to get him to say and do all they want him to do. My mom gets bills from where he's being hit and beat on. and we have seen bad things happen their. My mom had a "power of Attorney" and treied to take him home with Aids to help in a handicap cab. But this place called cops on us saying they will get his money and homes..!!! They ask for and got $20.000 a mo. in probate court for taking care of him. But they abuse him. This place should be closed down.!!! Can anyone help are friend Walter at 17 forry st. Nrewark, Ohio if so I beg for your help..!!! And don't put your people in Autumn Health Csare centers in ohio or they will become a prisoner..!! and get abused..!!They don't let Walter see mom or anyone one. Hes not allowede to used a phone or a walker to get to the bathroom so sometimes he just lays in his own waste. He not allowed any mail or to send any..!! Its so sad..And inhuman..!!! Can anyone help my friend..Hes like a father to me and I love this old man. My mom crys all the time from worry over him and miss's him so much..!!! Walter is 80 and mom 78..!!

    This is a Nursing home/Rehap that abusing people. I put my father in this place for rehap and they would not let him out. They said he was out of his mind when he just needed to heal from a messed up hip. My father was treated like a prisoner, never allowed to use the phones or get mail or or see anyone. They yelled at him using bad words and hit him. My father was so unhappy. I write this to warn people so hopfully no one put their loved ones in this really bad place. It should be closed down. They never gave my father the rehap they said they would. So my father never learned to walk again. He complained about not getting food to eat and missing seeing people. We was very sad and they call the cops if you try to get your friends or people out. They take peoples homes real fast. My fathers home was taken so fast that we did'n know it happen. we had to get him in an low-income apt. And he;s never gotten over what happen. I use to think Nursing homes was a place to heal and come home. But now I think they are like a Scam..They promise you stuff but only give you a nightmare. No one hardly comes come again without lawyers. This place needs to be closed down..!!! My father came out having nightmares. His home gone. And it took him some time to withdraw from all the meds they give him. They give the people alot of meds to keep them out of their mind and their. To get alot of money and max out the insure. or get their homes. This place does not care about the people..Don't put your people here..!!
