    My mother is currently at St. James and raves about all of the activities and her quality of care. She adores the staff and shares that they check in on her frequently asking if she needs anything. My sister and her husband visit daily and have also found the staff to be attentive and very caring. My father was at St. James too but, has since been welcomed home to be with Our Lord and Savior. Many of the staff attended his wake and showed such genuine concern for my mother as they had been together for 63 years. Thank you for taking care of the best parents a person could ask for! You are a blessing to our family!

    I worked here for many years as an aide taking care of the residents. It was very very understaffed, so much I had to leave. I feel bad for any person that has to stay there and thinks they will be helped in a timely fashion. your call bell will be answered after they help the other hundred people they have been assigned to.

    Anyone thinking of dropping their loved ones off at the care of St. James Rehab is strongly encouraged to do their homework and look into this place. However, don't take my word for it, if you feel comfortable with their services, all the more power to you, but our family did not, and we encountered a very dangerous, exploitative, and negligent situation when my grandmother was under their care these past few weeks. This place is a business with a staff that is either not adequately equipped to care for its patients, or does everything it can to get the most of you and your insurance company's pocket. Much of the staff seems either cannot be bothered to help or will circumvent a question. I've never been so disgusted with a care facility in all of my life and am horrified by the conditions, care, exploitation, and manipulation by SJR. Do not be fooled by the decor of the lobby, this place is unethical and I am surprised this place has not been in several lawsuits for malpractice. Upon my several visits to my grandmother, I found many patients being neglected, nodding off in the hallway unattended for a half-hour or more, or being left outside, and ignored in the 2019 summer heat. My grandmother is 87 years old and spent nearly 3 weeks here after being discharged from Stony Brook Hospital following a bout with pneumonia. She was originally at Atria Assisted Living, who are not a rehabilitation facility, and it seemed like she got more attention and care by their small medical staff there, which is unbelievable to me. We wanted to get our grandmother out of this place at the 1.5 week mark, but kept getting strung along by SJR's staff, who in fact messed up her daily medication to the where she could have been killed (her blood pressure dropped dangerously low as a result) They kept trying to convince us to keep her there, but were doing nothing to stimulate her or work with her. My grandmother is a friendly, easy-going lady and the staff could care less but to let her rot in their beds. Every time I went to visit her, it felt more like a hospice than a rehabilitation center. Admittedly, they did help her bathe, and feed her, and a few times got her on an exercise bike, but I have never seen my grandmother so weak in my entire life, it was upsetting to our entire family, especially since they would not let us release her even though we knew she would be much better off at Atria. The food at the rehab center was absolutely disgusting and not nutrient-rich at all - how do you expect to heal your patients when you cannot even provide them an adequate meal? Admittedly, no one expects a 5-star meal at these sorts of places, but I saw the decline of her health from the food they were giving her, especially since both myself and my mom went there separately to give her either a home-cooked meal or a fresh one. The cook at this place could not even get her a hamburger but instead was forced to eat some sort of processed slop. The people who run this place are absolutely crooked in ways I haven't experienced in a long time. The front end and reception was nice, but it felt like a smokescreen. They quite literally held my grandmother hostage until we had enough and wheeled her out ourselves. Furthermore, they forced medical supplies on us that we already had. We did not ask for these. This place is a crooked cash-crop that will drain your Medicare until they are satisfied. We will be writing a letter to the state, and I encourage anyone else who has had a run-in with this place to do the same. More than likely, whoever runs their Google review page will attempt to write a professional rebuttal about meeting with the staff or director and coming to a solution but we do not want any of that, nor do we want any sort of recompense. We just want your facility to get its nonsense straight and give other people the care that my grandmother did not get, and leave us alone with the several phonecalls about releasing my grandmother back to where she was comfortable, respected, and taken care of. Shame on all of you. - John

    My father was put here for rehabilitation after a double stroke,. They put him in a wheel chair and left him there for 3 hours with severe spine issues. They put him in a room with a man that was extremely ill. Next thing we knew my father went from a hopeful recovery to deathly ill with the same symptoms his roomate had. Quickly My father had severe infections thru out his body and b4 I knew it I was saying good bye to him and watching my father take his last breath. So unnerving that he looked so good in the hospital and then was put here and now just like that he passed away 2 1/2 weeks ago. Extremely under staffed but the 1 star is because my mother said the employees that were there, for the most part, were pleasant. It will haunt myself and my family knowing that this roomate was so sick and they put my nicely recovering father in with him. Its not the roommates fault of course, its the rehabs fault. So disturbed by the whole thing and it disgusts me.

    10 years ago my wife had two strokes and since then she has been in many rehab centers for various things. I can count the good ones on one hand that I would go back to and one of them is St James. I'll start off by saying no place is perfect but the quality and dedication of the staff is top notch. They take amazing care of Mary and now recently diagnosed with dementia Mary can be difficult at times but they seem to handle things with ease. The rooms are good it's not a resort accommodations by any means and it not supposed to be. They have many activities mostly geared to the elderly but my wife still enjoyed what they had to offer. They have music therapy that Mary enjoys hosted by Dani who sings and plays guitar and piano. He has a following and all the ladies love him including my wife - lol The P/T O/T was done every day except Sat/Sun and I could see the improvements although slow. Please remember that when your at St James make the best of your P/T and O/T because you only have a 100 days then after that you must leave or make arrangements to stay which is going to be expensive. When it comes to meals speak up if you don't like something they will always help you get a meal you can enjoy. Often when I was visiting with Mary I thought I wish I had what she was eating. Concerns: I noticed many residents had dementia and I was surprised to find out they are allowed to roam around freely in wheelchairs. At times Mary had to wait for 30 to 45 for aides to help her to bed or take her to the bathroom. With so many people on the same floor, I find it surprising that they only have one bathroom for patients that would need lift assistant. My wife needs two people to help her and sometimes finding that extra person can be a time-consuming process to wait for. My wife was in St James for a urinary infection and during her time here she also developed a fungus under her breast which was treated but should have never happened if they had been washing her correctly. Also, I have to watch to make sure they are changing her regularly as well. The best advice I can give anyone is trying to have as many family members take a turns to visit your loved one. Also when you see something wrong say something this support team goes a long way in keeping things in line and help heal as well.
