    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 lived at Alden estates of barrington for 9 years. They have done wonders for me. When I came here, i was practically a vegetable. Now i am sitting up in the chair, practicing walking, and talking and eating on my own. Alden estates of barrington offers super activities.. We paint, go on bus outings, and play games. The activity staff is wonderful. Come and see the beautiful Coy pond and the gazebo in the back. We have a beautiful garden. We have super nurses. They go out of their way to make you happy and make sure you are healthy. They make sure all of our needs are met. We have a wonderful ice cream parlor with great treats, and a beauty shop to get our hair done. They make sure we look beautiful.

    I have been living at Alden Barrington since September 2016. I am impressed with the caregiving and love giving from the staff. What i don't think of first, they do. They are one step ahead at meeting my needs. CNA Debbie is awesome and Kirti is very special. The nurse Ellie goes out of his way to help me. Nancy in dietary and Geri the activities director all provide wonderful services for me. It is hard to limit my compliments to certain staff since they are all so special. Sheri is always around the building helping someone out. All in all, I am very happy with my care at Alden.

    This place is horrible. I worked here as a CNA for a year and I'm so glad I did because I met some amazing patients and developed close relationships with them that some of them were like family to me. I worked with some nice cnas / nurses. Let's talk management.. they hired Kim blonde lady in the HR that does not even have a HR degree! She is disrespectful does not know how to do anything. She will screw up your check and will not follow up when you ask for something. Cynthia and Becky the DONS oh my god I worked with Dons before and these two are the rudest most cold hearted people ever! Cynthia does not care about her nurses and Cnas and if you are not Phillipino you will get treated like you are trash, she will Harrass you all hours of the day when you are off the clock texting you , thank god I kept all messages because I will be reporting this. She refusing to pay me my sick time because I quit but I was out SICK before I quit! Cynthia will not ask you anything she will accuse you and she is the most horrible person I ever met!!!! None of them care about your family, they will make plans to hide neglect and how to lie to the family members. Cnas will constantly ask for help because one cna has upto 23 patients and THEY will all sit in their office and not help us out , talk about neglect ???? They hired Kathy in the office she's been nice to me but you can tell she is stressed out. I can't work for a place that treats their staff and their patients like garbage .. stay far away! You will thank me later!!! This is the worst nursing home ever and I worked at a few ! You want to change stuff get rid of your horrible DON Cynthia because she does no good there! Your family will stay soaked and neglected because nobody answers call lights there or helps out the nursing staff! Glad I worked here because I got some experience how awful a place can truly be and how disgusting !!! Let's talk about Ayesha , nursing scheduler. She is two faced she will not help you out she will also harass you. Got text messages will post soon!! :)&&& state is always in the building and when they come everyone in the office freaks out and make all the cna/nurses lie to cover stuff up !!

    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.
