    To the staff at Sachem Center for Health & Rehab: Thanks to all of you who provided excellent care to our mother and grandmother Lena McNeil. My husband and I felt compelled to write this letter to let all those that supported Lena know how much it meant to us. The level of care of superb and we truly feel she could not have been in a better facility. We want to especially thank the personnel in both the Elmwood and Sachem sections of the nursing home. She received care and compassion from all that attended to her needs. We also want to commend the activities group who provided her social stimulation. Lena herself, often talked about how well she was treated and how hard caretakers worked. We know she enjoyed her time at Sachem. It is due to those who were very thoughtful and generous in carrying out their duties. She so appreciated that gracious kindness that was provided during her stay. Lena has shown so many how to live with joy, dignity and love. We will miss her forever. Thanks to all, The Family of Lena

    If you love your family member DO Not SEND THEM HERE! The staff was not only sub par but negligent. I arrived to visit my father (who has stage 4 cancer & only in his 50s) to find him freezing with no covers, feet out no socks, and the window was open. He can't move or call for help. He was gross, and horrible shape. I quickly addressed the nurses about the issue. They gave me supplies to clean him myself! (Which I did happily) But should not be doing at all, that is their job. If that wasn't horrible enough after I left my father "fell" out of bed. They had no rails, or alarms on his bed as they should have. My father could have been lying on the cold floor for up to 4 hours! FOUR HOURS! Why do I know that? Because that's the only time they come in, to give him meds! My father has horrendous abrasions all over his body and face. Naturally we wanted to transfer him out. Then the "Head Nurse" comes into the room where we were having a family discussion and was BEYOND RUDE. This woman not only put her hand I'm my face as soon as I went to speak but told me, "your father is going to die cold and alone in the emergency room hallway!" She also threatened to not give him his pain meds before transfer and not sending his paperwork over. The entire ordeal was BEYOND ridiculous. You people have no compassion for your patients and should be shut down. To add insult to injury (literally) once my father was transferred and my family and I were leaving the "Head Nurse" Sarcastically says, "Good Luck" I responded with, "thanks, we don't need it, he is going to a better place!" And this winner of a woman scoffs and says, "yea okay, he won't even be admitted, and he will die in a hallway." I can assure you all I will be reporting them to the Department of Health and do everything in my power to shut his terrible place down, have that horrible woman fired, and make sure this never happens to another family. Also when I went to file a complaint through the website the link came back not found. This place is a HORROR SHOW!

    "I was actually surprised that Sachem Center was a rehab facility. The care has been above and beyond what I expected. Nursing have been very good, and their experience is obvious. The rehab team worked well together to attain the goals they set for me. The kitchen was also very accommodating to meet my individual needs." -Joan Boyle

    My mother has been there four days and I am desperately searching for a new place 1. You buzz yourself in, no reception area. Pick a hall and hope you find the right 2. The staff gave a very obvious annoyed look when my mother dclined the flu shot because of a previous reaction 3. 3 per room is too crowded, no matter how temporary 4. Final straw, MISSED medication on her 2nd day.
