    Following a hospital stay and a brief stay at Spaulding Cape Cod, my father in law was admitted to Lifecare WB following a massive stroke. Our family cannot say enough about the amazing, compassionate, skilled staff at this facility. Their care went over and above the standards. Dad had a tough road, and the deficits that the stroke left him with were non reversible; but both he and the amazing staff, nurses, aids, nurse practitioner and therapists gave it 100%. Dad passed peacefully after his long and difficult battle, but we will be forever thankful to the staff at this facility for the care and compassion they showed to us. Cheryl & John V.

    I went to W. Bridgewater Life Care facility after a traumatic back surgery. If I said I was in pain it would be an understatement. Five days after my 2nd operation I was sent to W. Bridgewater Rehabilitation. I was *not* happy to be there for the first 5 days, but they won me over. The nurses were great and anticipated my needs so I was rarely , if ever in pain. The physical therapy team was friendly, well educated and helped up so I could walk, then build muscle in the PT room and finally climb a flight of stairs-and I was only there 30 days. I still have a road of recovery in front me, but nothing has been left to chance. I have a visiting nurse and PT about 3 times a week. I think it's amazing that that I left Mass General flat on my back & walked out of Life Care a month later The food was good and they bought me ice cream every afternoon:--) I cannot say enough good things about this clean , friendly and hard working facility, they were all amazing.

    My Dear Uncle Phil was very ill when he left the hospital in May. He came to Life Care and within 4 weeks he was able to not only able to breath comfortably, but back to performing his own activities of daily living. He was showering, changing, and even get back to going to restaurants and attending family gatherings. He was so happy with the care he received at Life Care from the nursing department, and occupational therapists. He enjoyed the friendly personalities most. The room and bedding was cleaner than the hospital he came from. He even said the food was actually good! I would recommend this place highly!

    This facility took very good care of my FIL when he was there for rehab last year so when I was thinking of visiting patients at a nursing home this year for Christmas, I KNEW I had to visit LC. Went today and it was such a treat putting smiles on the residents' faces by helping to hand out Christmas cards. I will be making this a yearly event. THANK YOU Phyllis and thank you Life Care.

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
