    Great facility whether you're looking for short term or long term care. One of the top recommended facilities in the county in my opinion. The staff is great and really easy to communicate with and get along with. Always friendly, smiling faces when you visit Life Care Center of Melbourne! If you need rehab for yourself or your loved one definitely talk to Jenn Allen, she is amazing and will make the transition smooth and stress free.

    My brother has been a resident at Life Care Center of Melbourne for two months after a fall that resulted in a broken hip and repair surgery. We have been so pleased with the care that he has since received. The facility is clean and pleasant, and the employees--from the administration, to the therapists, to the nursing staff and aides, to the housekeeping staff--have been professional, compassionate, helpful and kind. It is very evident to me that my brother is receiving excellent care; I could not be more pleased.

    I've called and left messages concerning the discharge of my mother and no replies. I was contacted by someone about her home health care, she is not at home but staying with me in Indian River County since she is alone and can't drive. I was told they don't service my area and to call the case manager which I have done several times and to no avail, please advise me as to what I am to do?

    Under staffed. Neglect... Mother got pneumonia, flu - from outbreak in facility. Found her lying in bed choking on her own phlegm & 102.5. Then my request to go to Hospital was refused until I insisted. Which I was made to use a private ambulance to transport her. . Shame on them..

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
