    My mother went to Allison after hip surgery. The staff was kind and helpful. Debbie, the administrator made sure my mother was well taken care of. Everyone went out of their way to make her stay comfortable. She stayed for about 3 weeks and could not have been in better hands. She is back home now, and I truly believe that all the attention at Allison contributed to her amazing recovery. She is 97 years old. I will most definitely recommend this center to anyone in search of a good rehabilitation facility that feels like home. Thank you Allison!

    Both my parents were at Allison Care Center with Dementia. My father one year. My mother just one month shy of 6 years. My father had a room on the second floor. My mother was on the first floor. By request they were not put in the same room. They would bring my father down each meal time to be with his wife. I just loved walking in and seeing them having their meals together. One time I walked in and saw the both asleep holding hands in front of the TV. That was the day I had to step out because it brought me to tears to see them enjoying just being together. Second floor staff were wonderful and caring for my father. He liked all the activities that were constantly happening. Loved it when he got to go on the bus tours. Always clean and smelling good when you got off the elevator. Staff were friendly and easy to talk with any concerns that I had. Allison Care was also wonderful in caring for my mother. She spent the last years in Walden Way. Which is their unit for more advanced dementia or flight risks. I was very pleased with how she was taken care of. I even had requests on certain things that the staff worked with me on. She was always busy with activities, special parties, entertainment and each Holiday themed parties. She told me many times how nice they were to her! My mother did not like to shower, but staff would tell her it is "SPA" day. The people that work in Walden way have a God Given Gift! They do the best they can with each and every resident. I have sat and watched how each resident is handled. Always with respect and caring attitude. They follow the laws and rules when situations come up beyond their control. I got a call each and every time there was one with my mom. I would call and never feel like I was putting some out by asking questions Let me say that it is up to all of us to be proactive in the care of our loved ones. It was the hardest thing I have had to do. Putting both parents in a nursing home broke my heart. I visited many before deciding on Allison Care. It is up to family to get the staff to understand and know your loved ones likes and dislikes. What they were all about before Dementia. I stopped by at different times and days. There was always cleaning being done, great smells coming from the kitchen, people smiling and saying Hi when you walk in. I do suggest keeping your own records updated when it comes to the business part of Allison Care. I was frustrated at doing it. In conclusion I THANK YOU ALLISON CARE for helping me help my parents in their final years. Janet Dowdy

    This is a great place! The atmosphere is homey and clean. It truly feels like a comforting environment. I have a loved one here and they really enjoy the activities that this place provides daily and the awesome food. Everyone is super friendly and staff is always helpful. I will say that I was concerned at first when I found out that they did not have an actual AC unit in their building. However, I was made aware that they do have a cooling system. (Like many places here in CO, they use swamp coolers.) Really happy with this place.

    I wrote this 1st review due to MY OWN experiences at Alison. I was there doing clinical hours to earn my CNA 4-5 years ago. So there is an update after this. DO NOT SEND YOUR LOVED ONES HERE!!!!!! This place is ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIC! I was there only 2 days to do my CNA testing at this awfully disgustingly MESSED UP facility! None of he staff gave a damn & patients were severely mistreated & neglected! I witnessed the CNA, i was supposed to be shadowing, disappear at dinner time (so people who needed assistance eating, were NOT eating). I witnessed the CNA give an elderly woman a FREEZING COLD shower...all because it was too hot at 1st for the elderly lady. The CNA didn't even let her feel the temp of the water before she stripped her naked & just blasted her with hot water! When I told my teacher, I was told I cared too much & that the school needed that facility to do testing at ( for Pacific school of nursing). So not to say anything. I also witnessed another worker pass right by an elderly woman is distress (who was making a ton of noise)on her rounds, and the CNA told me just to ignore the resident cuz she didnt know anything about her. The CNA couldn't understand her, & the CNA shift before her didn't give any update on the new resident. So the CNA just ignored her until SHE was ready to add a new person to her routine. (Turns out the woman was saying HELP ME!) Unfortunately, no one believes all these eldery people & they just say they r out of their minds.. .. THEY ARE NOT out of their minds. .. they ARE mistreated & the only place to find a phone #, to complain about staff, is in the elevator. & Most residents have dimentia or Alzheimer's and cannot access the information in order to complain about their treatment. No one knows that they can eat all they want from a basket in the common room & no one bothers to remind them or offer them snacks. The residents just wither away, grow weaker & die there, instead of getting better like a rehab SHOULD BE DOING! And these are only a handful of things I SAW!! THIS FACILITY WILL KILL YOUR LOVED ONES! I know they will only deteriorate there! If ur loved one complains .. BELIEVE THEM! if ur loved one cannot talk, SAVE THEM! take them OUT of that God Awful facility if you love them... PLEASE! or put in a hidden camera & see for yourself. It's NOT ONLY this facility that this kind of stuff happens in... There are bad people EVERYWHERE! Put in hidden cameras!! UPDATE: I have since been informed by management that there is NEW management in place there. He assures me he has worked very hard to change things there, and that they have a whole new staff. I find he is sincere in HIS efforts. He also seems like HE truly cares. He said he has even installed some cameras. (Not sure how many or where though). And that they have new standards in place. He assures me it's completely different. However, I believe more of what I see & feel rather than taking someone's word for it over a text message. And I have NOT gone there to SEE the changes yet. And I have NOT met him in person... (u learn so much more about people in person ). SO, I understand staff & management have changed & they have every right to be given the benefit of the doubt -that the whole staff is perfectly kind.... But too many people lack empathy & integrity. I'll return someday to see for myself. Unfortunately, SOME people are fabulous actors/ manipulators who pretend & act differently when they know they are being watched. So- I probably won't notice a thing considering I'm not staff. Until then, I suppose they deserve the benefit of the doubt.

    Very nice facility. I personally deal with Barb Davilla and her activity engagement is the best I have seen! All the residents love her and when she has to be out of the facility, most all of them ask about her. The previous activities personnel before she came were not engaged with the residents nearly as much. When I see the happiness and joy that she brings to the residents it makes me very relieved to have a loved one there. When I saw this review I knew it was bogus and felt compelled to respond. There is just no way that these allegations are true. It sounds not only malicious but also very suspicious. I highly recommend this facility and to interact with activities there, you will soon find out how lovely of an individual she is.

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
