    I cannot say enough kind things regarding the Blaire House. Our Father spent the last months of his life there. The entire process from getting him placed at the Blaire House which involved coordinating with the VA to his final days our experience was great. The grounds and facility are great and the staff is very friendly and they work as a team to provide the best care they can. Thank you to everyone at the Blaire House for caring for our Father as his life came to an end. v/r John Jr. & Family

    My mother has been here for over two years and I can not say enough good things about the care she receives. Everyone from housekeeping through to direct care are top notch friendly and professional.My mother is very well taken care of and enjoys living at Blaire House. I receive immediate notification of any change in her status and also have quarterly meetings with her direct care staff. My family is very grateful that Mom is in such a great place. We thank you all.

    I have been working at Blaire House for about two weeks and I already love it! Blaire House is a fantastic facility for so many reasons. The Management and staff are so friendly - it's the first thing I noticed - I've honestly never met nicer more friendly people. It's a great team and everyone works together and are willing to help each other. The residents are happy and friendly - always willing to talk to you, and receive great care. I am very impressed by the variety of activities that are provided for residents, there is always something going on, whether it's exercise, games or musical entertainment. This is a great place to work and I am happy to be here!

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.
