    I have been interning at Life Care Center of the South Shore since May, and I have had nothing but great experiences. The management and staff are welcoming and are willing to drop anything they are doing to help you. In the short time I have been here, I have been given multiple opportunities to grow and I have acquired many useful skills. I am so grateful that I have been given the opportunity to work with such amazing people and I am excited to see what my future holds with Life Care!

    Don't believe everything you read- go visit! I have visited fellow church members at rehab facilities and nursing homes throughout this area. I have been to Life Care Center South Shore at least a dozen times this year alone and I have found my friends have all been exceptionally pleased with their care! The building is very clean and the staff are kind and so caring. My most recent visits (Feb into March) I had a hard time catching up with my friend- between therapy and activities she was never in her room. I sat with her a few times over lunch which looked delicious and she enjoyed thoroughly. I really can't believe what some people have written. My best advice is go see for yourself. I am having my hip replaced in June and I know that this is where I plan to do my rehab.

    The staff and Administrator are quite rude and refused to help my mother. I do not recommend this facility. The staff stole food items that I purchased for her after she was sent to the hospital. Her dental crown disappeared as well after falling off her tooth. The Administrator offered to pay for a new one and after my mom left the facility now he refuses to pay for the crown. The nurses were so mean to my mom because she has dementia as well as psychiatric issues. They cannot handle dementia patients. The Social Worker was incompetent. The facility itself is clean and well maintained. The food was okay. They do offer semi private rooms but there is not enough closet/storage in the long term care unit.

    Spent 1month3wks in Life Care.After a serious car accident in which I lost limbs if it was not for everyone involved in my care I am not where I'm at today.From housekeeping to all the nurses to OT and PT I am walking, driving almost everything I could do before my accident. Would not recommend anywhere else but Life Care of the South Shore. And most of all made a lot of good friends.

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
