    Had my mother do her Rehab when she was discharged from the Hospital. Took her out in less than 24 hours. Absolutely would not recommend this place to anyone

    I am writing a new review just because the staff on East wing has been wonderful! I know working in a skilled nursing facility is not an easy job so I highly commend the nurses and staff who help care for my Dad at Fairhaven. I would love to mention names but am afraid I will leave someone out. I hope each of these valuable people are compensated well for their work!

    Great food and that's the only good thing I have to say about it. I'm not surprised to find that my original review never made it online and I was as polite as I could possible be. I would not take a sick pet there!!

    I cannot fathom how 90% of the staff here actually have a job in this industry. You have to be considerate, patient, kind and have a sense of compassion to do well at this job. That is not the case in the majority of their employees, unfortunately. As someone who has seen what goes on in a 10 hour day, I would never suggest this facility as an even decent place to send your family member.

    Recently, due to dementia, my mother moved into the specialty care unit. From day one the staff has worked effortlessly to make my mother feel at home. They have spent time with her, loved her, nurtured her, and focused on her happiness by giving her attention, love, and support. The result has been fabulous. She has thrived on the structured environment that offers consistent routines and engaging daily activities that so many like her desire and need. The low turn-over staff means that they have gotten to know my Mom and how to help her with just the help she needs. They are warm, friendly, and respectful. When I visit, I am greeted by name and always with a smile. In addition, the deliciously prepared meals keep her satisfied because the food is always high quality, well prepared, and nutritious. Fair Haven has met and exceeded our family's expectations. Simply put, I would highly recommend this facility to anyone who is looking for a community that is very clean and where administrators and staff aim to please. This is a friendly and caring environment for your loved one.

Compare The Number of Problems

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
Fair Haven has not received any fines, complaints, or inspection problems in the last 3 years.

Staffing Levels Per Resident per Day

Medicare determines the expected staffing time per resident per day depending on level of care the residents of Fair Haven require. It is important to compare the reported time to expected time for a single facility instead of comparing the amount of time per resident of two facilities. Learn why.
