    I've had the pleasure of staying here for PT and OT as well as recreational therapy. All were professional and fun to work with. This made my time go by quickly. The majority of the nursing staff are caring and committed to each patient. The attending MD is quite knowledgeable and cares deeply for the patients. The reason for 4 stars would be the kitchen and dining rooms. Food is adequate but well done most the time also temp. is not that great. I think 1 hour as apposed to 1/2 hour would improve appetites as well as social time. I also believe ore staff is needed to assist in dining room.

    My hurt knee was healing quickly in just 1 1/2 months, until they didn't support as I stood up when done demonstrating on the stairs. That was 5 days ago, and just now I don't have the stabbing pain whenever not on pain pills. I want to start walking again soon, but my doctor wants to wait. Trainers soon push you too hard, must return to campus within 30 minutes when going out. Otherwise a modern place to recuperate.

    My son, Adam, spent two months at Life Care Center of Aurora to recover from a motorcycle accident. He had several serious injuries and required a great deal of care. Overall, the nurses, PT/OTs, doctor (on site and available), and PA were very professional; they all monitored his condition and helped him heal. We do not live in Colorado, but everyone made an effort to care for our son even though we were not there all the time. The facility was clean and the food was good. The Case Manager worked hard to deal with the insurance company. The Executive Director listened to any concerns the family had and was quick to respond with reasonable solutions. The night staff is a bit under staffed, but this was more noticeable because my son required 24 hour care. Overall, the staff was hardworking, polite, friendly, and caring. My son was probably the youngest adult there, but I observed the other patients. Some patients were in for short term rehabilitation and others for long term care. The patients looked like they were well cared for and kept as active as possible. Although a bit overworked, the staff had a good team care attitude and professional skills. I highly recommend Life Care Center of Aurora for rehabilitation or long term care.

    My name is Adam. I was in a severe motorcycle accident that resulted in multiple leg and arm injuries which included a paralyzed right arm that also has debilitating nerve pain, a left arm that was broken and has limited use, and a shattered knee that kept me from walking. I went to Life Care Center of Aurora after I left the hospital for continued acute care. My medical care there was excellent. The Executive Director quickly responded to concerns expressed by my family. Dr. Singh (and his PA, Ms. Patel) were both professional and caring. Liza the case manager always went above and beyond in keeping me up to date and distributing all documentation so that I continued to get the care and benefits I needed. They even advocated for me so that I got a week to prepare when my insurance stopped covering my stay. They also fought for me so that I got my co-pay back when I was wrongfully charged by a hospital for an emergency visit. I would like to thank Yvonne, Laura, Belinda, Becky and Toni in nursing, and Helen the nursing director for their care. Peter and Kelsey with occupational therapy were a major help in getting me ready for daily living along with the rest of the O.T. team. The physical therapy team really helped with my recovery and preparing me to return home, big thanks to Andrew, Kate, Michelle, Marianne, Katrina, and anyone who I may have forgotten to mention. The food was pretty good too. I would like to thank everyone at Life Care Center of Aurora that was involved in my care and highly recommend them.

    I received excellent care after a hip replacement. The nurses and cna's were extremely attentive. Every ring for assistance was responded to quickly. The therapists were thorough with explanations and careful with exercises. I was treated with courtesy and respect by everyone from housekeeping and dietary to CNA's, Nurses and Dr. Singh. I would consider LCCA again if the need for rehab in the future.

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.

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
