    I would rate Zero Stars if that was an option. My Mom was admitted there for respiratory therapy and was there for only 24 hours. During that short window the care was non-existent. Not only did she not see a respiratory therapist during that time but even basic care was an issue. The caregiver to patient ratio must be horrible because the response time was extraordinarily lengthy. I was on FaceTime with my Mom while she waited for someone to walk with her to the bathroom.She waited 90 minutes before someone responded to her call button. 90 MINUTES! I don't blame the nurses and techs for the poor response time. I blame the management of the facility. If you want good, responsive care for your loved ones, research another facility.

    Physical therapy is good. Other than that, the management is rude, unable to get a hold of, and totally inept in handling my husband's release. The staff is just lazy. My husband sat in a diarrhea filled diaper for over an hour. He called me after 45 mins. of this. I called from home, and got connected to the nurse's station with no answer. I called again and told the receptionist to go back there and get someone to change my husband's diaper. My daughter told him to take it off and throw it in the hallway. Trying to get my husband out of there, they called the oxygen delivery on the oxygen guy's day off at 4PM telling them it was an emergency! He showed up 2 hours later after driving for 1-1/2 hours. I had waited all day for this to come, and no one called. Then Alden called the prescription of drugs into the wrong pharmacy, after calling me to specify the desired pharmacy which they already had in their records. Good gosh!!! My husband said the food was awful! The executive I talked to said this was the first time someone has complained about the food. Really? He also told me that this nursing home was just as good as the hospital. In the hospital, the nurse's desk was right outside the rooms. Response time was immediate. This executive talked a good line as he collected $33,000 per month, $14,000 just for the room, and finally released my husband, not because he was ready, but because the insurance ran out. The oxygen guy thought this place was elite, being in Barrington. It's just another run down dump of a nursing home with lame care, with a great entrance garden complete with really cool fish. Don't let the pictures out here fool you! Alden told me that my husband wouldn't be contagious from C Diff that he got there when he comes home. Right! Our entire house is now contagious, I may catch it, and no one can visit. I was babysitting my 7-year old Grandson before and after school. It's a DCFS violation to have him here. We're having an enormous problem finding him before and after school care plus transportation at this time of the school year. Thank you, Alden! Make sure you have plenty of Plastic Gloves, Clorox Wipes and Lysol when you bring your loved one home! Get a commode and put a garbage bag in the bucket for easy cleaning. Wear gloves for everything. Spray everything, including flushers, toilet seats, cell phones, light switches, etc. Put Clorox Wipes out to use to clean hands. Hand sanitizers don't work because they are alcohol based. You need bleach. So much more to learn. I sure didn't need this! Patients who are bed ridden and have C Diff are constantly re-infecting themselves because they are given no way to wash their hands before they eat. Just some Clorox wipes, Lysol, or a clean bucket of water and lots of soap would do the job. They are lucky to get their diaper changed in here, much less get something to disinfect their hands! Once infected, they get it over and over. Then they bring it home when they get released. A person died when I came to visit. I told an attendant, and he said that it happens there all the time. They don't seem to realize that some people come there to get better. At $34,000 a month, I would expect more. Wake up Alden! Don't just put 2 patients with C Diff in one room so they can re-infect each other. I'm finding it's easy to get rid of, and that doesn't include getting rid of the anti-biotics! If you gave the patients a way to clean themselves, and also clean the rooms properly, you wouldn't have this problem. Lysol gets rid of C Diff in 3 minutes. Finally, if your loved one is here to die, it's a good place to go...

    Looks Great! From the outside. I visited my friend today. Wish I could have taken pictures. The floor is covered in urine, my friend is covered in urine. Used latex gloves all over the floor, and light above the bed has been broken for five days. Still not fixed. This is how they treat people in their last days. One of the most inhuman places I've ever seen. Dump!

    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!

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
