    Care was lacking. No water given to aged mother for drinking in room until I asked.Often left alone in dining room. Food unsatisfactory. Hot dog for sunday supper. No help to get close captioned working on t v. Physical therapy was great. Loved one there 5 days with no shower. I was told they get 2 per week.

    I hate to give them one star! Over the weekend my cousins were here to visit their mom from TN and was treated so disrespectfully by the cna caring for my aunt not to mention how rough she was with her and that she didn't get toileted the entire time they were there! She is on the Alz. Unit and during the meal plates were put in front of residents that require assist to eat not one person came to help them and when they started cleaning up they just removed their full plate and discarded it. So they are not being fed!!! I worked for Whispering Pines for 10 years and it use to be a caring place, good staff. What hurts is that I recommended this place for my aunt because I worked there and I could keep an eye on her. Well I had to leave because I have never in my 17 years working in this field have I been treated with such disrespect. They show all these beautiful picture of the facility and rooms. Well not true. They have one wing down stairs that has been redone the rest of the place is falling apart. As a family member and a healthcare worker. Shame on you aperion care!!

    I would highly recommend this place to anyone trying to find the right care for their loved ones!! Aperion Care in Valpo has given great care to my father. I am very satisfied with the staff there. They are very caring and amazing with all of the residents. The new director is absolutely incredible! I've never had any problems with him. I am thankful for the staff for giving my Father the care he needs. Thank you Aperion Care for everything you've done to help my dad.

    Well, what can I say. My mom will not be here much longer as soon as we get her insurance straightened out. This is the third time my mother had to be put in a rehabilitation place, and I thought the other places were bad. They have a nurse (older and bad attitude) that brings her dog to work. Yes! I said dog. She brings in a bed and everything for this dog and puts it on the nurses station along with the dogs water dish. When I approached the nurses station and saw this I thought it was a joke, no it is a real dog. Not sure if that is approved by the state but to me that is nasty. I tried calling the business office on numerous occasions with no return call, calls to administration. No call back, I'm not even sure if they have administration , business or anything. Haven't seen anyone at the entrance desk since my mom has been there ( maybe once) . If anyone has any good recommendations for a rehabilitation facility please let me know. This place just seems to be ran by a bunch of clowns.

    This review is in regards to the comment below about the dog. There is nothing wrong with bringing your dog to the workplace, especially service/therapy dogs, since by state law, they are allowed to be with their owners. Depression in the elderly population is extremely high and it is proven by science that animals (dogs/cats) help reduce depression and provides a sense of companionship among the elderly. So props to this nurse for bringing joy to her residents by bringing her comfort dog. And props to the rest of the staff: nurses, CNA's, Activities, dietary, and housekeeping for providing care and compassion to the residents.

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
