    North Star Community is the home of my sister who is a paraplegic and suffers from a sever rare form of Epilepsy. North Star has done a tremendous job in caring for her and providing an environment and culture that all professionals working there should be proud of. Thank you.

    We've been here for a week. And my family and I and even the patient hate it here. The staff just talks in the hallway. Staff is very late too even when they're right out the door chatting about dinner or something. It's upsetting. I hate the staff and the place itself.

    Went in and filled out an application for house keeping (very qualified ) filled it out in the facility's dining room even spoke with some of the workers there. Called the next day to check on the status of my application and the lady told me I never went in , they don't have any application of mine , they don't even know who I am. She was very rude! I'm guessing the job went to the "Samantha" girl who she thought I was. They're very unprofessional And discriminate on people who don't speak Spanish !

    My Dad lived here for years, the staff is caring, and the facility is very clean. Can't say enough about how great they treated him.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others.

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.
