    The team at Aberjona Cared for my mother after she had 4 strokes and some other complications. She was literally rushed out of a Boston Hospital well before she should have been, and not prepared for the trip. When she arrived there, she was a mess and not in great condition. They called me when she arrived and by the time I arrived at Aberjona (some 10 minutes later), She was clean, cared for, and resting comfortably. Things only got better from that day forward. The team at Aberjona gave her excellent and individualized cared. They guided us through the process of caring for an elderly parent. Something I found that we were greatly in need of. Every day that she was there, I could look at myself in the mirror and say, "We've brought her to the best place." I will say that the team of people there are just amazing. The word "Caring" does it no justice.

    Don't let the 5 stars on their sign outside the building fool you. False advertising. George, Heather, and the physical therapists were fantastic but the noise, low quality of nursing care and general care were terrible. Some caretakers really had an attitude like they were doing you a favor. How New England Baptist (fantastic hospital) ever recommended this place is a mystery. The place, in my opinion, is very understaffed and lack motivation and empathy. Perhaps management should disguise themselves and then go in for 2-3 nights. They may learn that they need to find a new vocation. My wife went in for rehab. My impression is that the place is a nursing home trying to make extra cash by doing rehabs. Terrible idea. Very depressing environment. Often patients are sitting in the halls - slumped over on their wheel chairs.

    I'm pleased with my 98 year old mother's care for the most part. However, I am having great difficulty with the Mass Health application. Their social service department referred me to a private company that I contracted for a fee to facilitate with this application. They are going to close the case on 9/22 because they do not have everything that they say is required to submit the application. Not sure where or who to turn to next. Very stressful.

    My mother was there after she broke her hip. She also had cancer. My sister told me they withheld my mother's pain medicine and then had the nerve to scold her for making too much noise (moaning in pain) during the night. Don't send anyone you love there.

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
No actual harm with potential for minimal harm A B C
