    Life care of PSL is a beautiful clean friendly skilled facility with some of the best nursing and therapy staff in town. The staff are hardworking caring compassionate that have our residents best interest at heart. No facility is perfect or will ever compare to the care given by their own loved ones and it can never compare to the comfort of our own home but we strive daily to come close. We are always willing to listen and try to make things as comfortable as possible while you heal with us. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your family.

    Life Care Center of Port St. Lucie has the best rehabilitation team in town. Their physical and occupational therapist are very experienced and caring. The building is immaculate and welcoming. It's the only place I would send my parents for rehabilitation.

    Poor service, staff seems unhappy with management and my uncle said the only time they answered his call bell quick was when they were trying to impress the state. Pretty sad.

    My mother was a resident for 9 years. My mother in law was a resident for 3 years. I saw many changes in 9 years, some good, some not so good, but if I had an issue I discussed it with the proper person & it would be corrected. My mother was in another facility before LIFECARE & she was beaten so badly that she was in a coma for 10 days. I was very cautious & researched a lot of facilities before I settled on LIFECARE. No facility is perfect, and I understood that, but the majority of the staff did their best to keep my mother comfortable, active & cared for. All in all, the facility is very clean, they have a good Activities Dept. & the administrative staff is accommodating. They could use more nursing staff, but all facilities could use more nursing staff. The food is average but the kitchen staff tries to provide special requests. They have to deal with many different diet restrictions. I took my mother out often or brought food in for her. I think LIFECARE is one of the best, affordable facilities that I had found.

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.

Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
