    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.

    This review was posted on middle of October and updated November 1. First of all, nurses seem to disregard call lights, Majority of the nurses are Inconsiderate and do not care, I'm speaking for the Harborside Division. I'm observing what I see while I visited. Gruesome and poor care in my opinion. Majority of people are here to do their work and get out. Nothing more, call lights are seldomly answered, taking 3 hours from what I heard when my father called. The atmosphere is depressing as the nurses seem expressionless and dissatisfied with their work. The facility when you enter is amazing and beautiful, when you get into the rooms is outdated, some air conditioner units are updated, some are not. The compassion for their work is non-existent and the dining area is fancy. However service is incredibly lacking, the employees are their for only the money it seems, they do not really try to serve people with care. Physical therapists are great and kind from what I know and heard, that is a great plus. Kind and friendly to their patients. Food is subpar but nothing was really expected from a rehabilitation place. Some receptionists are nice, overall it seems there isnt a quality manager for the place. The downgrade of service is apparent when you enter the harborside division. I do not speak for the bayside division as we were not located there.il

    I have a disabled mom that has had several back surgeries and every time she gets released they put her in this rehab center for 30 days. Life Care Center is beautiful inside and out. They have a library set up with a computer and plenty of books, arts and crafts, cooking class, they have an actual ice cream parlor, therapy rooms and a beautiful dining room where you are more than welcome to have your family dine with you for lunch or dinner. The staff members are all very polite and caring people!

    My mom is a resident at Life Care Center in Palm Bay. It is the nicest facility that I've ever seen. The employees really take care of the residents as well as keeping the facility as spotless and as clean as possible. I am so glad that my mom is there. The staff is knowledgeable and very considerate of my mom and the other residents needs. I really love Life Care Center of Palm Bay.

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
