    Life care center is great. The staff is always friendly and helpful. They do such an amazing job of taking care of my grandmother. She loves it there. And says she actually has more friends now than she ever has. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone

    -Glowing reviews are left by their staff who benefit from selling this place to people. Looking at you Jamin Johnson. -False advertisement of capabilities. This place lists a long trail of conditions that they can care for on their website. So they come give you a sales pitch and talk about how they supposedly have 5 star rating and are equipped to the max. We were told "Oh. Yeah. This will be no issue. We should have you in within a couple days time." Only to hear back that they aren't actually capable of the services they claimed. Only requests that were made were for physical therapy, an appropriate shower chair, and proper bed. Respresentative said they cannot provide equipment for care. Maybe they shouldn't make the claim that they can accept you before they actually know for sure. Now we've wasted time to make other arrangements before hospital discharge.

    If you are looking for a place for your loved one look no further. The staff is kind and considerate. Easy one level facility with nice rooms and lots of activities. My mother is treated with respect and dignity. Always someone to help her when she is in need. The therapy dept keeps her active and motivated and she just loves the bible study and singing of hymns. Highly recommend this facility for rehabilitation or long term care.

    Overall a decent experience however the Nurse Lakishea on the west wing is one of the worst and unfriendly person possible. Any time you asked her to do something for your family member she had an attitude and was very rude about it. Like you interrupted her from sitting on her behind. Did not appreciate her at all. Kathy the housekeeper was so friendly and always made me feel welcome and went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed. Shannon the Nurse was exceptional and always did whatever you needed her to with a smile. The rehab Dan was great and went above and beyond as well. Wound care needs some help. Very friendly however don't think they are trained that well.

    After an exhausting 3 weeks of oral surgery, oral surgery complications, 2 stints @ University Hospital's ICU, 11 days @ an LTAC facility my sister has arrived safely in her NEW HOME! I toured LCC Michigan City on Saturday afternoon. The first thing I noticed was NOTHING. As in no off putting smells. We were met by Tre Von, a young man with a bright smile, cool dreds and obviously someone who loves his job. Gave us a tour of the place from a residents eyes. I was so impressed with this facility. A nurse asked if we had any questions and gave me Jamin's number and said I didn't have to wait until Monday to speak with her; I could call her on her cell number. I was more than sold on LCC Michigan City. Fast forward to yesterday...I moved everything from my sister's current facility, 3 hours away to her new home. Extra furniture that wasn't needed was removed immediately. I came this afternoon to wait for my sister and rearrange furniture, and get her settled. Amy arrived this evening and I am so happy for her, for my family and for myself. She is in a wonderful place and I look forward to working with the staff to make her transition an easy one. Thank you, thank you, thank you LCC of Michigan City.

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
