    After having stayed at Aspire in Hoover previously, I was very disappointed in my recent stay at Cahaba River. The rehab staff was great but most of the other employees didn't seem to care if they did their job or not. I begged for 3 days before I found someone (an aide) to help me get a shower - the nurses were quick to give excuses as to why it couldn't happen. Food was pretty good but trays were always missing items they said you were getting. One time my tray was in such a mess (grape juice all over everything) I couldn't eat and the girl was not the least bit concerned. On my discharge papers there was listed a TB test that never happened and OTC meds that I took at home at times that they never gave me there. I have been home 3 days with no home health care because they failed to provide information needed to get me setup. I would not recommend going here!!

    My mother went in after knee surgery and needed minimal help. She arrived on a Saturday from the hospital. Room was not ready. When she needed help to get to the bathroom it took over an hour 3 different times. My unskilled sister ended up taking her. They couldn't get her medications right either. No orders for her insulin, did not check her sugar levels before giving insulin, and no antibiotic. The wound kept bleeding so they taped it. She ended up going back to the surgeon to stop the bleeding. Then the wound care nurses never changed the gauze that was soiled. Will go back to the surgeon 5 days later for him to change it and remove the staples. UPDATE: she had to have another surgery to clean it out. The leg was swollen so they did not elevate it or ice it without us asking. No use of the CPM machine until 5 days of being there. Minimal therapy. The food was not for diabetics until the last days. We had to bring her food to lower her blood sugar to increase healing. My mother was alone and had to go to the bathroom and it took too long so she went on her own and yelled out the door. They pretended the light at the door was not working. I tested the bed and the door call buttons and they both worked at the door. I called the front desk before coming up there and the person who answered laughed the broken light off, saying the techs were there with her. I called my mother back and it was nurses who could not fix the light that did not need fixing. They are understaffed, without knowledge and have a hotel spa mentality. If you are willing to do everything yourself then you can go there. But if you need even the smallest amount of help or will leave your loved one unattended you are risking falls and possibly death. I am not trying to scare you but this is a life or death decision for most and they are no where near equipped. My mother was simple because she can speak up. They managed to turn that into a disaster. We left after 1 week or 6 days too long! Pray first and maybe visit before taking the chance. Talk to some of the residents or families. Ask a lot of questions before you leap. God be with you!

    Some wonderful chef and food services staff. Friendly, accommodating and willing to adjust to preferences. I did not have restrictions or a special diet. There is a good variety during the week. I appreciated the quality and the presentation. Areas that need improvement: 1)temperature of food when served...especially if should be warm. Maybe it is delivery method or quantity per run. 2)availability of items on the menu. This was across the board from breakfast to dinner. Could be advance orders from vendors, miscommunication of occupancy, or tracking of inventory. I heard " we ran out" too often during my 3 weeks. I complimented Theo and Mike regulary. Excellent substitutions of Greek Salad, Grilled Cheese and other variations of salad. Their sweet tea was marketable. I hope with time they can work through issues that would easily make this a 5* rating.

    The rehab staff was great, but that's only one hour per day, or so. Our overall experience was horrible. Within 24 hours of sending our loved one, she had to be taken back to the ER. You would think that after that situation they would be more attentive and accommodating, but they were not. Constant turnover in nursing staff resulted in a lack of appropriate care for a very frail lady who needed the utmost care during her recovery. Food was sub-standard. I offered to share my feedback directly to the staff and to the facility director. No one called me or emailed me back. They ignored my request for a conversation. To me, that is evidence they did not care about our experience or about improving the experience of other patients going forward. Beautiful facility, but they have miles to go to prove to us that they care.

    Don't let the advertisement for this facility fool you. This is NOT a resort nor does it have "resort amenities." Nor does it have an "excellent staff" or "delicious meals" as the brochure tells you. We took my dad over there to recover his strength after a long stay in the hospital. He stayed about 18 hours, and that was 18 hours too long. Terrible place!
