They offered activities my husband would enjoy but did not offer assistance to get to the activity. The rehab therapy was excellent. There were several times I came in and my husband's dressings hadn't been changed or had been done incorrectly. There was another incident where my husband wanted a substitute meal and he called down the kitchen to explain he couldn't eat what he was served and it took two hours before he received any food. Messes weren't cleaned up in a timely manner.

It is very clean. The meals seem adequate but came late. They have called me on a number of things so I am informed.

It is pretty decent. The nurses seem very nice. My sister is very pleased with the PT person. The aides are sweet. The head social worker works very hard and is wonderful. This is my sister's second time there and we find him very caring and good. It is basically clean. Sometimes I see papers on the floor. The nurse was willing to call the cleaning staff for help. There is no urine smell. My sister is not pleased with the food. They put a white sauce on everything and she does not like it. She wants a lot of fresh fruit. Communication is excellent. They call immediately about everything.

It was alright. My loved one was very weak throughout her stay, so certain aspects are difficult to judge. The nursing staff administered medicine and they walked away instead of waiting for the patient to take it. They are a little short of staff, but everyone was friendly. The facility was clean. They were good about keeping us up to date on her care.

It is great place to be. It stays clean. They could use another cook in the kitchen. They are on top of keeping me informed.

My mom's therapy is going well. The staff have been amazing to my mom and me. They work around her schedule and the family's time. When my mom needs assistance, it takes a little bit longer for them to get to her room and ask her what's going on. It's not terrible. The cleanliness is not too bad. It took two to three days days for a housekeeper. The floors were dirty. The next day, it was done. They've been on top of it since then. Every time I go in, they always tell me what's going on.

Everything seemed fine. It was very clean and nice. They were really good about informing me. Someone called last night about him going to the hospital, and she was really sweet and on top of it. My loved one wound up on the floor a couple of times in the middle of the night.

The service could have been a little quicker. They had very good rehab services. The nurses were all great. The aides were good. The staff was very friendly. We had to ask for the room to be cleaned. The microwave was filthy. The meals were very bad. The communication was very good. The social worker was very good.

Sometimes they are understaffed. The nurses seem to know what they are doing. Some of the aides are not reading the charts. My loved one never gets the food she orders. I have to go and ask the nurse for information.

Everyone is wonderful. Everyone is very nice and caring. The meals are fine. My loved one was a little upset with the care on his bottom. He needs a little more sanitary cleaning. That was only one little issue. The facility is clean. He knocks things over getting out of bed, but it is clean. They are not too good with communication. They do not call if there is a health issue. The nurse said they should call of any changes in his health. The LPN is very caring and attentive. Some nurses ask if my loved one needs his pain medication, and others do not ask him.

The nursing supervisor and director are not on top of things. They need to call the family if the patient has an issue or asks them to do something. They just ignore him. He asked for his treatment and the nurse just ignored him, even though it was ordered by the hospital. I called the director and spoke to him about it, and that same day he still had the same nurse! They need to keep in mind that not all of their patients have dementia. Some are completely capable of speaking for themselves! The therapy seems pretty good. Some nurses need raises, and some need to get their act together. All the staff are very polite. It is very clean. The meals can be improved. They don't keep me informed.

The social services director is good at keeping me informed. Our experience with the admissions staff was a disaster. The nursing staff is indifferent at times. They have had trouble getting pain medication to my loved one at the right time. He is hardly eating.

We have been very pleased with our experience at this facility. We did our research, and this is the one we chose. My loved one really likes the therapy team. He gets excellent care from the nurses. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The cleanliness is very good. At times, we really struggle with his appetite, and he really likes the meals at the facility.

The facility is clean. Most of the staff go above and beyond, but a few do the bare minimum. We especially like one of the nurses and two of the aides. The meals need some improvement.

Most of the meals were good. A couple were not. My only concern really had to do with the night-shift care. At times, it seemed as though it took much longer than during the day to receive care. Also, some of the staff members at night did not have as positive of an attitude as the daytime shifts. There was one CNA who was very helpful at night.

I think the level of service is inconsistent. We had a couple of mishaps there. I think it is the way it is managed. The quality of care varies for the nurses. There was one aide for 15 patients. My loved one did not utilize the aide much.

So far, everything is going very well here for us. The staff is very friendly, and we would definitely recommend the facility. The nursing care is very good! A CNA is especially helpful and kind.

It has gone so well for my father here, literally across the board. We are so pleased with the care he is receiving! Two of his nurses have really stood out to us. Across the board, the staff is great. He has actually gained weight this week because he is enjoying the food so much! Communication is an area we are most pleased with. They have been terrific at keeping us informed and involved. We would definitely recommend this facility.

The occupational therapist as well as the physical therapist my wife works with do very well with her. Our main concern is with the diet not meeting her needs. In the beginning, we were told there would be options, as well as the ability to provide meals that meet her dietary needs, and so far it has been an issue having this carried out. The nurses are not responsive. I do realize there are many patients. However, at times, my wife will wait 30 to 40 minutes for assistance. If there is a way, it would even be nice for them to do check-ins on her to tell her someone is coming to help. Some of the aides have been especially friendly. There is an aide that usually cares for her in the morning, and another aide that she especially likes. Her room has not been cleaned in three days.

Overall, my loved one's stay here went well. The meals were not quite what they could have been. The dining service was also rough. If you made a special request, you would not know whether or not it would be fulfilled. When you order anything, it may or may not come back.

So far, everything is going just great! You can tell the staff really cares about the patients. The nurses are very concerned about my loved one and are always letting me know what is going on. The facility is very clean! They are always reaching out and making phone calls. We are well informed!

My loved one was very comfortable there. It was a very pleasant environment, and he had a private room and bath. The people were very helpful, and they were willing to help with anything. If I had questions, they answered. They all did a great job keeping me informed. The rehab therapy was very good, and he was very happy with it. The facility was very clean. The food was horrific and inedible. He is used to home-prepared meals to his liking. I brought him food. He only ate the oatmeal.

I have to ask for showers for my loved one and the food is cold so that's why the experience was only fair. Overall she is doing good.

The people, the nurses, the staff - they are beautiful people. They have the most beautiful personalities I have ever met at a nursing home. I am very happy with things there. It's very clean. If I could give it a 10 out of 5, I would!
