“Dad (Roman K.) grew up in Saint Leo, lived with his parents after serving in the Navy in WWII – until he met Mom (Rose Mary S.). He lived in their home in Kingman for 64 years. We (us 7 kids) were concerned the transition to WHCC would be difficult for him. But the aides and professional staff welcomed him generously, and continue to provide compassionate skilled nursing care. Their reward is his ornery attitude: he thoroughly enjoys giving the staff a hard time every single day, and plans to live at WHCC until he is 100!”

“When our family started looking for a senior care facility for our parents, it was because of need. Their plan, at least Dad’s plan; “We are going to stay in our home.” There had been no other planning considered or openly discussed with the family members.
That plan did not turn out as he had dreamed. Dementia set in on Dad and as it progressed, Mom became his rock. Our decision was forced when Mom suffered a sacrum fracture which rendered her wheel-chair bound. A lift was required for all her transfers. Their home did not lend itself to wheel-chair access, much less a lifting apparatus and a wheel-chair.
We surveyed three facilities including the one in their home town to find one with suitable staff and equipment for her care and Dad’s dementia. We decided on Wheatlands Health Care Center and our decision could not have turned out any better.
Family members were allowed to prepare their room with family photos and familiar art from their home in advance of their arrival. It helped their transition greatly.
The staff took them in as family, they were not treated as residents. The staff’s attention to detail and willingness to keep the family members updated on Mom and Dad’s status was greatly appreciated and respected. They relayed facts and open conversation.
Our parents had round-the-clock care as necessary. Family members and friends were able to visit at their leisure and visiting areas were made available to suit larger groups. Meals provided were quite good and were changed to suit their dietary needs as changes occurred. Family members were allowed to eat there with notice in advance and payment.
The rooms had individual temperature control for their personal comfort.
I do hope your situation is not as ours was, but if you are looking for a sound senior care facility, you can select Wheatlands Health Care Center with confidence. They have a great facility and the staff provides excellent care.”

“I have been happy with everyone. They really take care of the residents. I feel very fortunate we have a facility so close to home.”

“When faced with the decision of where to put our mother and grandmother, we chose Wheatlands Health Care Center in Kingman Kansas. We chose this facility for several reasons. One being a convenience for our family, but the main reason was the wonderful care we knew she would receive. We could not have asked for a more loving, caring, and competent staff. Our mother’s diagnosis of ALS was not one the nurses and aides deal with on a daily basis, but they knew exactly what to do to keep her comfortable and content. They always made sure they kept us informed with every issue no matter how small. We are so grateful for the care our mother received prior to her passing and would strongly recommend Wheatlands to any family when making this difficult decision.

“Thank you for all the wonderful care you gave to dad and for being so nice to him, mom and our whole family. If it wasn’t for Wheatland’s my dad wouldn’t have been as comfortable and well cared for as he has been the past two and a half years. The entire staff at Wheatlands; nursing, food service, housekeeping, activities, business office, records keeping, social services, maintenance and all the other departments of administration are truly angels without wings. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We love you all.
