    Last night I spent the evening with my dad at Alden Estates of Barrington. While everyone there has been exceptionally kind I wanted to share with you what a special night this turned out to be. My dad was asking for me so I decided to spend the Halloween evening with him. While enjoying the great salad bar, live music and fun costumes, I noticed a women who I often see working in the dining room. She seemed very kind hearted as I noticed she took the time to put her arm around a senior, help another with opening a pudding pack or simply sitting down for a moment to talk, each time bringing a smile to another. Before we left the dining room, I just had to walk up and thank her for the kindness she shows to the elderly. She told me she enjoys working there and helping whenever she can because our seniors deserve kindness and respect. She then introduced me to her 16 year old twin daughters who also work there part time to save for college. Sweet young girls, who like their mom, took the time to sit down and talk with seniors who rarely get visitors. I am now left with 4 big bags of candy! Will donate to all the nurses, aids and servers at Alden Estates of Barrington who everyday bring smiles to those who deserve a moment of kindness. Thank you for your hard work and for the kindness and smiles you brings to others.

    My mom stayed there recently and received excellent care. The nursing staff was wonderful and the therapy staff was amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better place for my mom to stay while receiving rehab. I would recommend this facility to anyone!

    This place sucks and should be closed. Patients wait over 30 minutes to get help to go to the bathroom. Then if they can't hold it anymore the staff acts like the patient did something wrong. They also don't put on clean sheets after they caused the patient this distress. Did I mention that's the service you get at a cost of 20k per month. moved our uncle to a new facility he is doing much better and they actually care for him all at a cost of 3k per month. The bottom line is don't use Alden Estates. From what I've read you get better medical attention in the cook county jail. lol

    My favorite aunt recently stayed at Alden of Barrington until her death. Se was 92. I visited her at least three times a week for about four months until she passed. I'm a curious fellow and some would say I'm pretty detailed. I looked closely at this Alden facility in Barrington that my cousin put my aunt into. I found the staff from upper management to the assistant nurses all kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable people within the scope of their particular job. I wanted to mention a few names in management that I had more then a few conversations with. Cynthia the head of nursing, Kathy B who runs the facility and especially Sheri C who I'm not sure what her position is, all i know is she was always there when I needed someone. She's an outstanding communicator and always followed up on what she promised me for my aunt. I would put Cynthia and certainly Kathy right in there also as people I could rely on whenever I had questions about her care, diet, or medication. I found the food, service, response time, therapy, and the facility itself to be just fine. I often thought of the other patients there and their level of care. It looked to me like they were taken care of very well. I thought of also why they were there, a number of different reasons. I guess this facility takes all but only a few of the types of patients who need care. So lets remember, this is not a hospital. Quite often they receive patients where their stay and insurance is up from the hospital and this is their only alternative. Or the hospital could unfortunately do nothing further for the patient. Individuals who have to receive some type of therapy for their recovery. People who are paralyzed or in some way 90% incapacitated, or even wards of the state. And finally people who come to Barrington for some level of assisted living;...a nursing home to permanently stay and feel good, respected, taken care of, and maintain their sense of dignity. Remember our loved ones come to these facilities because their not doing well.This puts a lot of strain on us and we run with a high level of emotion. We"re angry, we're upset, we're tired, and we are at some level of grieving for our loved one. So Alden of Barrington not only takes care of the patient, but us, the grieving loved ones. I've seen it again and again. In my humble opinion they get a solid 5 stars for both. For my wonderful aunt I couldn't of been more pleased where she spent the last months of her life. I know she would feel the same about it too, not only because she had 100% trust in me but because she felt it too. Sincerely, A loved one of a loved one

    I have been in the Health Care Industry for 33 years. I have to say I have never seen a more professional facility. The nursing staff is one of the best. My wife would not be alive today if it weren't their attention to detail. They are always willing to go the extra mile. Unit 2C wing has the most awesome nurses you could ask for. From the front office to the cleaning crew are outstanding. They are in my words A++++++. If I ever become ill or need of rehab I want to go there. The nurses will explain everything to you if you need to know. I am so impressed with this facility. The only bad thing which is not a bad thing is if you call after hours you will be on hold for some time. This is a sign that they tend to the patients more than just answer the phone. I feel it is better to have them taking care of patients than hanging around the nurses station. This is the best place you can find.

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
