    Total lack of communication between all disciplines! My father never looked cared for. His weight significantly declined in the 2 weeks he was there and it took our complaining before any intervention was done. No one bothered to get reports from specialist appointments or told therapies about results. Total lack of care from nursing all together. Disorganized and inattentive. We were under the impression that this was the best around. If you are not proactive in your family's care then stay away! We took my father home to provide adequate care. What a sin! Take them up north if you want good care.

    Stay proactive on your loved ones care. The organization is very secretive or just can't be bothered to pick up the phone. No team work between departments, it is up to you for ALL information gathering. Getting lab results and quality detail information is impossible unless you are right in their face. Very sad place for individuals with no loved ones to be an advocate for them.. It is all about the money and the folks are run through like cattle.

    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!

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
