    My best friends grandma is currently at Rensselaer Care Center, I am extremely impressed with the excellent care she is given. I try to go there once a week with my best friend, she was very hesitant and nervous to put her grandma in there and now she feels so blessed to have her there. Initially we thought she was going to be able to take her home and now her grandma and her want her to stay because it exceeded their expectations. She loves her roommate and the staff there. They have a lot of different activities and she really enjoys to go participate in them. Prior to coming to the nursing home, she was setting at home throughout the day because she wasn't able to drive and now she has all of this socialization with the ladies she sits with in the dining room, the therapy gym, and activities. They have their own beauty shop and she loves that she is able to go there once a week and get her hair done. They also have a lady that comes in on Wednesdays and does the ladies nails, she shows them off to me when I see her. The nurses have been a blessing and make her feel comfortable and do a great job communicating with my friend. We are very pleased she is there and with the care she receives.

    My grandma just left there after a couple months of rehab. She had a knee replacement and needed therapy. She was on the Rehab Unit in a nice private room. The staff there was great and everyone took such good care of her. The therapists did a great job with her and she is able to be at home and doing more then she has in the past few years. We had a great experience and I would highly recommend them!

    My great aunt is currently in Rensselaer Care Center. She is on the locked memory care unit and we are very fortunate to have her there. All of the staff on that unit is amazing, they are so well trained and really know how to take care of her and all of the other patients. They even have gave us some tips on talking with her. They have really neat murals painted on the walls that is like an older scene setting. Beth that works in activities there does so many different programs and comes up with such fun things for them to do. Dementia is a difficult diagnosis and very hard on the family. Rensselaer has made placing my aunt for the better. We know she is getting the care she needs, she is in a clean and safe living environment, and she is having fun!

    Wow! Where do I start?!?! Well when I first walk into the center there is no receptionist to help you or greet you. The woman that came out from the back was a treat to see. Her name tag said something about business manager and if that is what her position is with this company then they don't consider the way their employees look much. She was dressed like she was relaxing for the day, sloppy Capri pants and it looked like a t-shirt with flip flop sandals on, tattoos on her head, arms and legs, these should be covered in a professional office. I was directed to my grandmother's room and was a bit surprised at the smell of stagnant urine as I walked to her room down the hall she is in. The CNA's were very nice and greeted me and asked me how I was today. They seemed to be very good with my grandmother and I think she has a favorite CNA by the way grandma treated her, this made me smile. During a meeting with some of the staff for my grandmother's care the facility administrator, which she made sure everyone knew who she was several times, looked like she hadn't taken a shower in days. She was very pushy and demanded attention during this meeting by the way she talked and treated the other employees in the meeting. I was very upset when leaving that meeting and do plan on finding a way to get my grandmother out of that center. I would not recommend this center to anyone! Very unhappy with my experience with this center.

    My best friend's father was there and instead of sending him to the hospital when he got sick, they wanted my friend to approve advance directives. They left him laying in best so long he got terrible bed sores and the list goes on. Her dad is doing so much better now that he is out of that place.

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
