    I have one parent age 84 in the special care (skilled nursing) unit & one age 77 in the assisted living part of the building. Prices are reasonable for the Los Angeles area I suppose. Not the newest facility around, but it does have a certain charm. Built at the end of the 70's & funded by the Italian American community of LA including ol blue eyes himself...Frank Sinatra. If you visit, be sure to check out the Chapel on site & also say "Hello Dolly" to the painting of Dolly Sinatra out in the adjacent hallway. Daily Mass and rosary is offered for the residents. The iconography around this place is definitely Catholic and/or Italian, although it's not required that you be of that background to live here. The furniture in the main foyer is Baroque in it's style. Pretty nice gardens w/water fountains etc around the facility to enjoy the SoCal weather year round if your parent is able to walk around. Physical therapy offered in the skilled nursing side of the place but not the assisted living. Several dozen fairly new La Dolce Vita residences out back (two bedroom condos) for elders who are still healthy enough for independent living, but I think there's a waiting list to get in. Overall I rank it a strong 4 stars as a five star "resort" place would be prohibitively expensive. I'm sure you could find cheaper, but as the ol' adage goes "you get what you pay for."

    I just relocated my sweet 90 year young mom to the Special Care Unit at the Villa. She had been living for a short time in a nursing home in LaGrange Il. This will be her first year without snow! Villa Scalabrini has welcomed her with open arms and heart. After less than one week, she told me she "loved" it here. It means so much to me to know she is so well cared for. This is a very special "home" away from home. Thank you all.

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
