    The person in charge of admissions is a nightmare to deal with. Her name is Latika, I've tried reaching out to her at least a dozen times and left voicemail every time I called her. She didn't even have the decency to respond back to my calls. After trying to get ahold of her for literary two weeks, I finally decided to go in and talk to someone in person. Boy! What a disappointing experience, I had thought that going and seeing someone in person would be different, but I was wrong. When I went there I spoke with the assistant director for admissions, and I was assured that I will receive a call from him within two days. Guess what? He did the exact same thing that Latika did. He did not respond back to me after two days. I tried calling him to see what was going on, he did not respond to my calls and did not return my voicemail. The people who work here are the real definition of incompetents, I wonder how long have they been fooling around and getting away with this. I hope their incompetency will soon be revealed, and they will start doing the actual jobs. What a disappointing experience! Good luck if you don't belong to a certain group of people to get admitted here.

    Very loving home. My Mom only lived there for 3 Months before her passing every day she was loved by one staff member or another. Sure some are there only for a job but I would say most employees love their residents, Thank you for you love and care of my Mom.

    I was blessed to receive the best care I could possibly ask for. The entire staff was both professional and sincerely interested in helping me recover from major surgery. Their good spirit was very much appreciated by my entire family and me. Thank you Elderwood. Stephanie Johnson

    My 93 year old Mother spent a month recently as a patient in the rehab unit of Elderwood at Amherst as she worked on recovering from a fall. We have nothing but praise for the staff of the place. Every one that worked there from the kitchen crew to the nurses and nurses' aides to the therapists to the Administrator were friendly, courteous, helpful and very professional. She could not have been in a better facility. She even liked the food - literally cleaning her plate every meal! Thank you!

    In Sept 2013..My experience at ElderWood was one I shall never forget .The staff was wonderful . your Physical Therapists are the best one will ever come across. They certainly know their jobs. They will get you moving!. While their I met three wonderful ladies. We have become fast friends and try to do lunch at least once a month. We always end our luncheons with a visit back to ElderWood. The staff hasn't changed they still have their bright cheerful smiles when we come in.. Recently however I noticed their dress code has changed to rather drab and depressing.. I think they steal the light from of their bright bubbly personalities which was always a pleasure to see them come into the room with a bright cheerful smile and clothing to match. Lets face it being in a rehab place isn't fun but its the staffs personalities and freedom of expression though dress and communication that helps us get though those grueling days.. Please consider letting them go back to the other dress code that was in place when I was there. It really does helps to lift the patients spirits .Bright colors do a world of good to someone who's feeling down .. Linda Green

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
