They started slowly with him and he is doing better with the therapy. I think they started too late and this was a waste of time. Some staff are excellent and he has a hard time getting help to the bathroom. They keep him clean. He has a hard time getting help to the bathroom in the dining room. He also has a hard time getting back to his room right after he eats. He did not like some of the food but this is expected. My brother keeps me informed. The business office called me about the payments and I want to know what is going on. The business guy is very helpful.

They take care of her well. She is always clean and she likes to paint some pictures. They take care of the patients very well. She likes everybody. Her room and bathroom are very clean and nice. They change her clothes every day and they take her clothing to the laundry. Sometimes I see a little dust on the floor. She is not complaining about the meals. She said if she does not like it she does not eat it. She was in the daycare there before. She likes her nurse. For Mother's Day she made some jewelry for her from her home and she was pleased to give them to her nurse! She complains about the PT. She is very elderly and they put her on a bicycle and told her to stay on for 15 minutes and she tells them I am tired. She does not speak English so it is hard to communicate. She needs different exercises for her age.

They are the best. They are understanding. She likes most of the staff. They really try to understand her. They check the room from time to time to clean. The food is not from our culture. The food is good for the people there though. They need to improve on communicating. We would like to know more of what is happening with her health and what is the next step.

I would recommend Dry Harbor. There was a nurse who wanted him to stand and he needs help. She had an attitude. The therapists were great though. He likes one of the nurses and one of the ladies was very kind. I was upset and she helped me. She was very sweet. We have not heard back about a meeting my mom missed.

I like the nursing home and I like the therapist. My husband does not want the therapy but he has to do it and everything is okay. The nurses are okay. In general the staff are all nice. If I have a question, they call me back. One of the social workers is especially good. Some lady approached us trying to insist on praying with us, but we do not want anyone telling us about their religion.

I do like the physical therapist, she is good. It is a nice and clean place. Most of the staff are nice. One of the housekeeping staff is especially nice, she always asks me how I am and if I need help with anything. The dietary woman was wonderful and very helpful. There seems to be a big problem with communication though, especially between the hospital and the facility. When I attempt to get information about his care, it is very difficult and I find myself just running in circles. You need a family member to be there for you to fight for their care. When we first arrived, my father sat in the hallway for hours. On Father's Day I came up to see him and when I stood over him I realized he needed to be changed and notified the staff. They did clean the floor but it took them a while to tend to him. I also feel as though the facility underestimates my father's intelligence and cognitive abilities.

I would definitely rate this facility a 5 out of 5. The therapists are doing a great job! They have also done a great job at communicating with me about my father's progress and overall state. They communicate with phone calls as well as emails and letters that give me updates on my father's care. The staff also communicates with me about his progress as well as any concerns we have. They are very good at keeping me informed. At times my father has some complaints, however he can be a little more difficult. It seems as though they take care of his concerns. He did have an issue with one nurse in particular whom he felt would come into his room for care and not interact with him personally. Other than that the nurses are very good. They are overworked but very nice. At times he doesn't like the meals, however there are other times he does. He happened to have Baked BBQ Chicken yesterday and it looked amazing!

It seems like it is not consistent. Some people are very sincere and cordial and some people act like it is just a job here. I was there for five hours and no one came in. I have to ask about any information. They should tell us the nurses' and aides' names. I have to flag people down.

This is our first experience at a facility and so far they have made it go so smoothly. We are very pleased with her care. Everyone I have come across so far has been very nice as well. The facility is very clean! Sometimes they give you the menu and I will write down what they should give her and they do not accommodate this. She is a picky eater to begin with so I have had to bring in food from home to get her to eat.

I was very satisfied. I would recommend it. The therapy was good. They were good. Dry Harbor is a five star on the paper at the hospital. Other than the food it was better than the other facility nearby. This is closer to my house. I thought they were very good. They have no charges for the TV or phone. They had a nice car service for three nights. That was very nice. I was there at lunch time and they gave me a mini dinner. The elevators are a pain in the neck. He did OT and PT and my husband was satisfied. They keep an eye on the patients. I was pleased with what they did. I told him to do what they ask and then I told him would get him out of there. They were pretty attentive and some better than others. They gave him a shave and very nice. They were pretty friendly. We like our meals hot and they were not as hot as I would like. Some of the meals he ate and some he was turned off from.

If 4 people are using the toilet, we have no way of cleaning it. I was there for 3 weeks. When I would go to the desk with a question, they would tell me that they would find out for me, but I never got any response. I had to go directly to the Social Worker for answers.

Everything has gone well with the facility aside for a couple concerns. Since she has been admitted, her clothing has been lost three times. I believe the facility should move the patient's belongings after the patient returns. When this happened many items were lost and have not been replaced since. The food is alright. It has been very difficult to get a hold of her. I mentioned it to the staff three days ago and it has not been taken care of since.
