    My Mother was a resident for over 2 years. The staff was very loving and caring. They took excellent care of her.

    My mom was at Life Care Center of Palm Bay last year and again this year for residential rehab after her hospital stay. The staff was extremely helpful and dedicated to their residents. The facility is well maintained and clean. Hopefully my mom won't need rehab in the future; but if she does I will use LCC of PB again.

    The staff are very helpful, I wasn't the best patient but they were always very kind and very caring. Thank you for putting up with me.

    Aside from nice surroundings, good PTs/OTs and pretty good food, this place is not even close to satisfactory. During my mother's stay she had issues with the phone and her meds. When I complained to Jason, ADON, I was given a long explanation about these issues. When I interrupted his lengthy explanation, I was told that I was being "confrontational". WOW - real professional!! To compound things, after complaining, my mother was given a series of cognitive "tests" without explanation. Also, they do not answer call bells in a timely manner (my mother was left on a bedpan for 1/2 hour!!). I guess they don't believe in management pitching in.

    My husband was in Life Care Center last year. The staff were wonderful. The facility is lovely and well maintained. When released he went back a few times a week for physical therapy. If he ever needs rehab again Life Care Center would be our first choice.

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
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
