    BEFORE YOU BRING YOUR LOVED ONE THERE MAKE SURE THEY ONLY NEED THERAPY, THE MEDICAL STAFF AND TREATMENT IS BELOW SATISFACTORY. GETTING THE TRUTH FROM NURSING AND FINDING YOUR LOVED ONE IN SOIL CLOTHES AND URINE WAS QUITE COMMON DESPITE BEING TOLD THEY CHECK ON PEOPLE EVERY 2 HOURS. MY FAMILY AND I NEVER THAT'S NEVER WENT IN FOR A VISIT EARLY MORNING OR EVENING AND FOUND OUR FAMILY MEMBER NOT IN A SOIL OR URINE CLOTHING . HOWEVER THE THERAPY DEPT WAS GREAT ALTHOUGH THEY CALM TO HAVE ISSUES WITH THE NURSING STAFF AS WELL AND FOUND IT HARD TO DO THERE JOB . I WOULD LOOK ELSEWHERE FIRST BEFORE PUTTING YOUR FAMILY MEMBER HERE ..

    My mother was in Life Care for 3 months. She went for therapy after a hospital stay. The staff was very attentive and cared for her. Mom of course loved certain staff members and not happy with others but that's Mom. There was some miscommunication between case managers and doctors. Some days Mom would call and say "Im coming home". In reality she could not. The CNA's and nurses were wonderful. I cant say enough about how kind and patient they were. Some days they were short staffed or extremely busy and yes Mom may have an accident and had to wait longer than normal for them to get to her. If she ever had to go back to rehab I would select Life Care. Physical Therapists and their rehab room were GREAT. My Mom could hardly walk 3 steps when she first went there. They worked with her and pushed her. She is doing as well or better than she has in years!

    I always wanted the best for my parents. I said I would care for them till the end of life and would ever have my parents live and be cared for at a skilled nursing home. However, with a young family and my parents dimensioning health I knew I couldn't do it alone. At first this was heart breaking to me but I quickly came to realize that Life Care had much more than the best rehab, skilled nursing, CNA's and doctor. They have extremely engaged concerned and loving employees. (Every employee no matter what their role). I was always warmly welcomed from the minute I walked into Life Care and greeted at the front. This welcome ever stopped at the front but it would continue up and down the halls by every employee. The whole staff truly cares about not only the patients but the patient's family. They always had an ear to listen and a how can I help attitude. Life Care has touched my parents and my life more than anyone could ever imagine. My parents have gotten so much more care and love than I could ever have given to them by myself. For this my family is so grateful and blessed. Thank you for everything you do each and every day

    Life care center of Melbourne was a welcomed help in my life. My mother spent one month in there. It was ran as professional as could be. Jeri the case manager was wonderful to work with and updated me on my mom often. Dr. Smith(the house doctor) really cared about my mom and was easy to talk to. The therapist, the front desk, the nurses were all extremely kind. This center is clean and staffed well.The bottom line is that she is Well. period. I would highly recommend this facility, as my mom is being discharged today and back to her old self. Thank you LCCA you all did a wonderful job, and she is home for Christmas.. Health care proffessionals are really unsung heroes! Job well done and THANK YOU!!

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.
