    There's a General Store! Candy, cards and goodies to buy for loved ones! The staff is welcoming and friendly. They recognized family members and gave updates about our loved one. A surprise visit found our relative smiling and happy. She doesn't know why she is here, but we do. The security of having our bright eyed lady safe and cared for is a comfort. The newer wing needs some artwork and the activity area has too many exposed wires. I am looking forward to seeing the addition get fixed up. Thanks for all the window views with trees.

    The time that my mother spent at the Lutheran Home Memory Care unit was an unexpected blessing for her and our family. The thoughtful care that she received from everyone on the Staff gave her a sense of safety that I had not anticipated, and that made it possible for us to spend our family time together socializing. She was treated with dignity, her room was homey, and all of her personal care needs were met from bathing assistance to hair styling. Lutheran Home's environment was supportive for the whole family, and any of our questions or concerns were met with prompt responses. And she clearly liked the new friends she made at meals, social events and games like bingo. I would not hesitate to recommend the Lutheran Home to anyone looking for a warm, safe environment for a loved one with memory care needs.

    My husband and I have been attending twice weekly Parkinson's exercise classes at the Lutheran Home in Arlington Heights and can't sing enough praises for the instructor and the program! We both come away every Monday and Thursday with our spirits lifted and our bodies feeling better than when we entered. Having a small brunch afterwards that the home provides is a great way to socialize which Parkinson's patients need. We just returned from our winter in FL and are still most impressed with this Parkinson's exercise class and its instructor. The hour goes quickly with the exercise and the beautiful music that accompanies it.

    Just brought my mom home after spending a month at My Rehab. Wonderful people! My mom was happy to go home but will really miss the staff there. Just really nice caring people.

    The Lutheran Home in Arlington Heights, Illinois is a great place. I've visited several times for various occasions and have been impressed every time. Staff members are top notch, friendly and caring. The facilities are clean and you can tell the residents are happy and are cared for very well. I think the food is amazing, nothing like you might expect. The attention to details is incredible from the gift shop to the first nurses' station you see, it is a quality. The chapel is beautiful and Sunday services are inspiring.

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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
