    My mother has been at AristaCare-Cedar Oaks for almost 10 years. When she first was admitted, we thought it unlikely she would live a year due to her poor neurological function. It is due to the great care she receives that she is still living. The staff treat her like she was their own mother. Despite being bed-ridden she has never had any issue with bed sores/skin breakdown. Despite being nonverbal, everyone (nursing, aides, housekeeping, activity coordinators, I could go on!) knows who she is, and greets her by name and a friendly smile and converse with her, even though she cannot answer back other than with her occasional smile/laugh. She has had the same CNA care for her during her time there, and most of the nursing staff and aides are the same, which says a lot about the facility to have minimal to no staff turnover. The doctors are very reachable and helpful if any issues arise. The staff in the Business Office and Admissions are also very accessible and helpful. I would recommend this facility without reservation to anyone making the difficult decision of needing to move a loved one into a nursing home. My mother is on the Indian unit, where the food, entertainment, language are familiar to her homeland, which is a terrific find. Some Indian residents come all the way from California! My siblings and I are about 2 hrs away, but it is worth it knowing she is so well taken care of! Additionally, the facility is beautifully maintained and very clean compared to many of the nursing homes I have visited.

    AristaCare at Cedar Oaks has met my expectations of care. With a facility as large as this one there is always room for improvement. The administrative staff was very willing to listen to patients needs and address the concerns in a timely manner. I have no problem in recommending AristaCare at Cedar Oaks to anyone who may ask. My one concern that I have recommended to the facility is the need for more staff per patient ratio and I believe that AristaCare will be looking into this matter. That said, AristaCare of Cedar Oaks gets my 5 star rating and an additional star for dealing with a Redhead who pushed them to excel beyond the 5 star for patient care. :)

    I highly recommend AristaCare at Cedar Oaks. It is a patient-focused facility. The administrative staff presents high quality care and service. Among the many attractions is the cleanliness of the facility and the friendly atmosphere. The nursing staff is exceptional. The therapy offered to the clients is superb! I rate this facility as extraordinary!

    I was at cedar oaks for sub acute rehab this is not my first time here and if I ever need a place to go CO is my first choice. The staff is warm and nice always smiling, therapy makes you work so you can get better and home as soon as possible, and I also enjoyed the full activity program. I plan to visit the facility from home so I can meet and keep in touch with the staff and other friends at the facility. On memorial weekend we had a great BBQ I will try to attached a picture, I know the facility enforces HIPPA very strongly and the privacy of their workers. At the day of discharged one staff member said to me "you might be discharging as a patient but now you are part of the AristaCare family you are always invited to come and visit"

    I had a knee replacement and they are great. The service and amenities are good. They have movie night, beauty salon, manicures, and much more. The staff has great morale, and it shows in how well they care for everyone. It was a great experience in all and I would recommend Cedar Oaks

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
