    I highly recommend Sunny Acres. From her 1st day to the day she passed, the Nursing Supervisors, Nurses, CNAs, PTs and Activity Department personnel provided my mom with high quality care and treatment, great respect, and genuine concern and friendship. They treated my mom like family. She loved all the activities, the homemade soups and meals, but above all, she loved the way the staff made her feel. She felt welcomed, cared for and safe. The facility is clean and well maintained. I have had the opportunity to visit and experience many Massachusetts nursing home/rehab centers and none compare to Sunny Acres. I believe being family owned vs big corporate business is a key differential that results in better care and friendlier living environment. I am deeply grateful for all the care and support my mom, family and I received from the wonderful Sunny Acres team!

    My stepmother is a patient at Sunny Acres.The staff and personnel were top notch regarding the care they gave to my mom. The staff were always happy and smiling and showed good bedside manners for all the folks.The floors and rooms were kept impeccably clean. I would highly recommend this facility to anybody.

    Sunny acres is a poor excuse for a nursing home. The staff is beyond unprofessional and the owner himself treats patients and employees horribly. Very miserable judgmental person. I don't recommend this facility to anyone in fact I would advise that you steer clear from it if you truly love your friend or family member who you are considering admitting.

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
