    I can't speak for all aspects of this center, but having visited many care centers as part of my job, this one has a very positive vibe and everyone seems to be very friendly towards the patients, and the patients seem happy. The facility also seems to be very clean and well-kept.

    I recently had a family member live here for about one month. I visited and called several times during the month and always experienced caring, compassionate, patient and creative staff members. The staff and nurses were especially kind and would find my family member when I called on the phone. My family member improved substantially during his stay and, thanks to their good care, was able to move on to more independent living. Aspen Living provides a lot of engaging activities for the residents. The facility is very clean, with a nice yard and gazebo out back. The meals are tasty and healthy. The ratio of staff to resident seemed very good. I was always impressed with the number of nurses on the floor. Thank you Aspen Living.

    The nursing staff here always call the ambulance for my grandpa when they don't need to because the nurses here don't know how to do their jobs.

    There's no security, the residents have to share a toilet with four people. Their showers get skipped, weekly. They wait hours to come to people after they press the call light. On top of no security the "front desk" doesn't pay attention so anyone can go in when they please. I've never heard one good thing about this place. I HIGHLY recommend if you have any family/friends to remove them quickly! People shouldn't have to spend their last years that way. If I could I would take them all out myself. I'd rather them be at my house! Please take this into consideration, these are people's lives at stake.

    Please don't put your love ones here. The staff is changing always new. The staff just sits the patients outside or in their room not talking with any of them. Most of the staff has no training and don't know how to handle an emergency ( patients seem to fall all the time). Sadly my love one die here before she was transferred. When they call the were rude and disrespectful saying my love one die. When I went to pick up her stuff, I was very upset and they didn't even care it took me 10 minutes to find any staff. I asked where her things were they said that was it. All gifts she had been given were stolen even her shoes. I hope this place is shut down.

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
