    After a hospital stay, I was at this facility for a few weeks. The services of the therapists, occupational and particularly physical, were top notch. They were caring and supportive and obviously well-trained. They made it possible for me to return home and quickly get back to all my normal routines. On the negative side, most concerning was an important medication the hospital said I was to take morning and evening - but it was not immediately available at the Brewer facility when I arrived. Apparently it came from a pharmacy in Portland. It did not arrive for my evening dose, nor did it arrive on the midnight delivery. I was unable to take it in the evening or at the proper time in the early morning. This caused me much anxiety as I missed two scheduled times. It finally arrived around 10 a.m. the next morning. This might have been the Portland pharmacy's mistake but it was of great concern to me. Another negative, the food is awful. A lot of bread products - big slab of bread topped by some protein, topped by another slab of bread. Very few, if any, fresh vegetables or fruit, too much saturated fat, eggs (hence cholesterol) every morning ...impossible to maintain a healthy diet. Meals are served 7:30 a.m then a large meal at 11:30 a.m. (much too close together), then around 4:45 (too early). Sleeping was often difficult, particularly when some of the other patients screamed (in pain?), often loudly, throughout the night. The facility seems moderately maintained although the windows in my room wouldn't open (we finally got one to open about 3") and since it was very warm, it was uncomfortable. They did provide a fan for us which helped. I was also surprised to smell cigarette smoke on several staff members who came into my room - even seeing a pack of cigarettes in one person''s pocket. I would expect a HEALTH facility to be sure that their employees did not smoke on the premises. Even with these negatives, however, I can recommend this facility because of the superb therapists who worked with me.

    Kind of regimented and mean. My husband had been at another facility but needed to be closer to home to complete the discharge process. He had had a massive stroke, and home visits would be required to make sure things were set up for him. I had to fight to have him allowed to eat in the lunchroom. He was expected to eat in his room and only to leave for rehab sessions. He was like a second-class citizen in physical therapy. The more experienced therapists obviously preferred working with younger, non-stroke patients. The therapists assigned to my husband were inexperienced and were more interested in chatting among themselves. He was kept safe, but that's about as much as I can say for the quality of care.

    My Mother went to Brewer Rehabilitation Center this past summer and stayed until August 2016. I looked at the reviews and weighed the pro's & cons of all the facilities in the area and chose this one. Not one regret. She was so well treated by the Nursing staff and the Rehabilitation Therapists were some of the best she'd encountered along her journey. Thank you so much, for all you did to get her back on her feet. We appreciated each and every one of you, along the journey. Lisa Jandreau, daughter of Phyllis Morin

    I have had several family members here. They always recieved great care. The nursing staff is kind and compassionate. The providers are very responsive and willing to meet with family members to answer questions. The therapy staff is the best in the area. The staff go above and beyond for their patients/residents. They buy clothes for those that need them, they bake birthday cakes for those that have no families. I have seen nursing staff stay late(off the clock) to sit with a dying patient so that they would not be alone. My mother in law was here multiple times over a 5 year period. This was the only rehab she would go to. No facility is perfect, but Brewer is the best in the area!

    The staff is wonderful and the care is too, but the food is absolutely awful. My Mother actually brought food from home for my Dad. They really need to improve their food service, it's terrible.

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
