Sunset Estates of Maud

32
City/Town: Maud
Location Class: Hospital
Year Built: Mid 1970's
Year Abandoned: 2006
Status: Restored
Photojournalist: Jennifer BurtonLeslie Flaming

Sunset Estates was opened as a long term nursing facility in 1977 for medicaid and medicare patients only. There were 62 beds.

They provided many services to residents such as clinical laboratory services, dental services, dietary services, mental and social services and speech and language pathology.

In 1997 a Pottawatomie county judge found Sunset Estates (medi-plex) not guilty in a case filed against the facility.  The case concerned injuries a patient suffered when she fell from her bed in 1994.

In 2002 they were cited with 4 deficiency violations by the state fire marshal concerning smoke alarms, sprinkler system, faulty electrical wiring in the attic and fire extinguisher certifications.

By September of 2002 it had changed ownership four times.

In 2006, the facility was unable to secure funding through the states medicaid program and was forced to close its doors.

I've recently been to what's left of Sunset Estates. It is soooo spooky. And yes, those are medical records on the shelves. Does anyone know who currently owns this property?

My mom passed
es away in a nursing home in Maud in the late 60's. It had just been built at the time and she liked it here because she knew all the staff. Is this a different place and who originally owned Sunset? Just wondering…….

this is a place I used to visit when I wan in elementary school to sing for the elderly and it was a very nice place it sickens me to see these pictures after it has been sitting there for so long but as of my last visit to my home town it is once again in use and as far as I could tell it was thriving :'(

My grandfather died in this place not from his cancer, but from an infection from the bedsores he got from never being moved from his bed. I remember going to see him in that place when I was little, I hated it then and I hate it now. My grandmother died there as well from severe pneumonia. I know it is historical and maybe haunted, and everyone wants to spend time there, but I wish it would just burn down. Give some families some peace.

Hey….I am the co founder of a new group in Tecumseh & we found the owners of this building…after hours & hours of searching on the internet & several phone calls. He let 4 of us in to do an all night investigation & we caught alot of activity on tape & on our cameras. This was by far one of the spookiest places that I have ever been in. Also just a little FYI the owner does not like to let people into the building but after alot of begging & me promising not to pass along his info… Read more »

we were told by the local pd that the owners were a management company based out of new york. we were also told that the town of maud was having a problem contacting the owners of the property about getting the place cleaned up and were most likely going to do the clean up at the towns expense and bill the owners. we haven't been back and took all these pictures in a matter of minutes. we weren't looking for ghosts though.

I am actually from Maud and my grandfather was in this nursing home he had bed sores and all kinds of problems. my grandmother took better care of him there than the nurses actually did. i think he would have lived longer if we would have another facility to put him in. but being from that little hole of a town you're not left with many choices…it was horrible. the care etc i am thankful they are shut down now!!! Maud is a little town of maybe 1200 people now. I got out right after high school. The town doesn't… Read more »

I wouldn't donate any of that stuff, due to the poor care of that facility, it looks as thouigh they had absolutely no up keep in the past 33 years. Black mold on the ceiling, heat damage to the entire place, the beds and matresses even looked like they're from 1977. No telling what infectious molds or diseases lurked in that place, and still do., Yuk!!! It looks like it's been flooded a few times too. Did you notice all of the water damage on the floor. I'm pretty sure that wasn't from mopping. That is absolutly sad and I… Read more »

That is stupid. I was the legal guardian and caretaker for both my parents for almost 6 years. Mom died 2 years ago in a nearby nursing home at age 86-Dad had Alzheimer's and died last year at age 87, he lived with us for 6 years. What a terrible waste-many many people could use some of that equipment which looked still usable as well as the poor piano and organ. Some organizations could use them for sure. My Dad went to an Adult Day facility that would have loved to be given some of that stuff. That's crazy to… Read more »

I know right! For some reason when we close health care places instead of giving the supplies to another health care facility who could use it we just leave it there to rot , I'm like what the actual hell . My great grandma was in an adult daycare before she died and they would have loved to have the blankets and things in these pictures .

I agree. I was amazed all those items were still there. Wheelchairs and walkers and, were those medical records on the shelves in the blue binders? Why wouldn't they try to sell or donate some of those items. Just amazing and horrifying at the same time.

i know what you mean. that was what we thought too. i recently found out that on the last day of operation there and after all the residents had been moved to other facilities, the employees simply locked the doors and walked away. they left everything pretty much just like you saw it in the pictures.

I hate to see things like this, the waste is just terrible. In these pictures I see several wheelchairs and walkers and I think of all the people that could be benefitted by their use. The table and chairs are beautiful and the piano as well. Why do we allow these things to be wasted as we do, it just makes me sick!!!

Why in the world would ANYONE intrude on the past…. as far as I'm concerned this is sacred ground. My mother and four of her sisters were here for some time. The pictures shown now are a disgrace to the way this nursing home was back then. Yes, it was not the "newest" nursing home.. but to many it was home in their home town, close to family. My mother was in a brand new nursing home in Texas.. she broke her pelvis, and was given the wrong meds which nearly killed her.. she was scalded with too hot bath… Read more »
