PT and OT is fantastic. I like the room over looking the golf course. The TV range should be more channels. I like the care. The cafeteria downstairs is great. I did not like some the dinners. I do think that they should have face cloths.

It is clean. It is a nice place. I liked it very much. They were always cleaning. The people were nice but not enough of them on the weekend. Other than that, I like the PT and the food seemed good. I would send her back to Parker. They took her to the gym and she walked up the steps. Some staff are really good and some were so so and some a little annoyed. They tried hard but there was not enough especially on the weekend.

I think it's clean. The people are very attentive and they come when you call them. They are polite to me and helpful. My dad looks very healthy. With the help of the people there I think my dad will have a good chance of recovery. I like the therapy that they give him. The staff seem to be nice. The people all seem well cared for. It's really clean and it stays clean. My mom was there 4 years ago, and its been kept up very well. The fish tank is still there and they have a nice piano in the lobby. Communication is 100% good!

It's fantastic. We have already had our 3rd meeting. The nurses take good care of my sister. She is clean when I go there and it's very clean in general. They take her out of bed and she likes it there. My sister is the type who will stay in bed if they allow it. My sister don't complain about the meals. If she don't like something you give her, she will tell you.

The nurses are very nice. I really like them and appreciate them. She said the meals are very good. The therapists seem like they have a good plan set up. But she is coming from a location where she was doing more. They have had her in the wheelchair the whole time, but she is there to become more mobile. She would like to walk more, outside of just the physical therapy.

It's clean. There is not enough equipment for real rehab. Each time I have gone up there I can only find one nurse. There's a shortage. They become friendly when outsiders come in but not when we are not there. The aides are not nice and if you ask them a question, they do not answer and there's no compassion. My loved one is not getting the assistance she needs and they're only there to get a paycheck.

The therapy is very good. I saw the OT and ST working with him and it was good. I spoke a few times with the speech team and they have been very helpful and reached out twice and asked about his communication. The rehab physician we had a visit with. The people are lovely but the facility is a bit run down. The nurses are very attentive with one nurse for the one unit from what I saw. The care is very average. They need some oversight to look at their practices a bit. I am little disappointed and Parker Jewish has a very good name. He did not look like he was washed up and he did not have any briefs on. Maybe they do not have enough CNA's possibly. It is clean. I know they are renovating some areas and where he is at it could use a little fixing. There is a menu and he is eating fine. It does not look particularly fancy but it is palatable.

The rehab therapy is good. I'd recommend it but the facility does have some shaping up to do though. The staff are very good. It got better especially after we complained. We've had some problems. She was not getting help when she wanted to go to the bathroom. The good thing is going to the cafeteria but she's not happy about the meals. It could be because of her diet though. The communication is good. Once I call someone they contact me and let me know what is going on with my daughter.

The facility is very nice. Everybody is terrific there. I find that if someone is in rehab and the family member isn't there, they aren't getting the attention they need. He needs one on one care. He is not getting enough physical therapy. I have to go look for people. The one thing that bothers me, is I called and someone was on vacation and no one called me back and there was not an out of office message.

I have visited my loved one at the facility and from what I could tell, they are doing everything they can do to help improve the condition of my loved one. I would get phone calls and I would return the call and let's say I happen to miss their call, but I would return less than a minute later - I would never be able to get through to that person.

The rehab is very nice and helpful. Everyone was extremely pleasant and nice. He was in a room with another person and the service was great and he moved to a private room and he had to wait an hour to go to the bathroom. Also the bathroom was not cleaned enough.

I like the way they communicate with the family and how they are responding to what I ask far. My loved one is making some improvement.

The care overall is good. The staff and nurses do a good job, but the nature of their set up there is no way they can be more attentive. They have to wait a while for the nurse to come around. They could be a little bit more aggressive with the PT. The care is fine but it takes a little bit of time. Sometimes they say she is not my patient but overall it is fine. It is well maintained.

The therapists try to work with my loved one every day as scheduled. They don't give her any pressure. The meals are delivered in a timely fashion. They are well portioned and hot.

The staff are friendly enough and it's very clean. I've communicated with many people and it has been very good. However, the nurse could be more attentive and perhaps have a better bedside manner, more sympathy. I feel like the nurses have been too confrontational. And I don't think there is enough nursing staff. Also, the food is atrocious. I wouldn't touch it myself. It's a struggle to get my mom enough nutrition. It's like they take food out of the freezer and pop into the microwave for 30 seconds.

The second floor, where my loved one is staying, is absolutely beautiful. I wondered around the facility and the people seem happy. I will say the long term care - it was kind of depressing.

This is not what I hoped for. Maybe it will improve. The therapy is very good and she is coming along. She is doing well with it. They change the garbage and the rooms are clean. If something falls on the floor they clean. The day nurses are great but the nurses at night are awful. The day staff is wonderful, decent and always listening. The meals are not to my liking but they are warm. The communication is not very good but the PA and some of the nurse are pretty good. I think things have fallen between the cracks and it may not be intentional. They are very unresponsive at times and they do not answer the phone at night.

It's immaculate, it's nice. The food from what I see is good and my girlfriend likes it. They are on time and prompt with therapy. They are always there to come get her. The staff are very nice people. They always let me know any information that pertains to me. The nurses are good. They are on time with her medication and stuff. However, my girlfriend has to go the bathroom a lot and she has to call the staff to go. I understand they are busy, but a lot of times they make her wait. When they get there they do what they gotta do. So no problem there. It just take them time to get there.

My sister has to wait to get help. They don't have time for the patient. She is not receiving the therapy. There are some staff members who are nice and some that don't care. Like on Sunday, there were two workers arguing with each other out in the hallway. There are some of the staff that are really nice, and some that just don't give a hoot! I have to clean up my sister's room. They could do better with the food. It's the same thing over and over. You have different types of people of different nationalities; they should cook food for them.

We've heard wonderful things from others about Parker, so we chose it for my mother. My mother has not complained about the nurses, which let me tell you, means this place must be pretty darn good! The therapy is helping my mother and she is improving. I found one doctor to be especially helpful. My mother is having difficultly with the food. When it comes to the proteins, whether it is meatballs or chicken, they are so heavily cooked. If they gently communicated the reasons they are helping, my mother would help. No one is keeping me informed when I am there. I have only had one situation where I needed to speak to someone and a doctor got involved and was very helpful.

I have mixed emotions about the facility there were some very pleasant people. The nurses were not bad but I transferred my mom out. There was a very pleasant male gentlemen the first night, he was great, very attentive, and I was comfortable with him. The night shift was great. One of the aides was very rude to my mom. You could've knocked somebody out with the chicken. The communication was another issue. I came in her room there was a big note to make sure a family member could go to doctor appointment. I took the day off work to make it, and the appointment was actually another day. It just seemed to be one thing after another. I left messages for the social worker she never called me back and then tell me she was in meetings.

I have to search for help at times. Some of the aides, especially on the third floor, are not friendly and have a bad attitude.

The aides are very friendly. The CNA that deals with my loved one is very good. Although, they need more aides. The patients have to wait too long fo things. The nurses can't provide the care patients need, they are stretched too thin. It is not good for the patients to suffer. I feel that the nurses are understaffed. There was no communication that I had to go with my loved one to their doctor's appointments or having to pay for their transportation to the appointments. When my loved one was first admitted here, there were dust bunnies under the bed. The bathrooms don't look too kosher to me either. The food doesn't suit my loved ones taste buds.

There was a lack of urgency, for the most part, I felt like there was complacency and the aides are desensitized to it.

They need more people. Some of the aides are genuinely nice but some are not. I had to let the aides know not to raise their voice with my mother. The nursing care is good. I had to clean the bathroom because it is filthy. She went to another room and I had to clean that bathroom as well. You have to make yourself very vocal so they know you care about the person there. When my loved one fell they called me. They also called me when she got a scratch.

The communication is good with the supervisor. In the beginning, it was not enough therapy with only 20 minutes a session. There is a nurses aid that is there in the afternoon who is very kind to my mom but the aide in the morning does not want to help. This is tiresome because it affects her progress. They should sweep the floors more frequently. My mother is on a strict diet and there is a limited amount of food she can eat.

My loved one is getting better due to the care she is receiving here. We have no complaints about this place. I think that the nurses are overwhelmed and understaffed. I do think that the communication is a bit lacking. There is an odor that lingers.

Without a doubt, this place was very clean. When I arrived they didn't have a bed ready for me. They do not get things to you on time. I knew that I need to take one medication at a certain time every day. So, I would call up to the nurse's station every day to make sure I was getting my medication. The nurses did a good job though. The meals were not good or hot. They were just warm and never at serving temperature. The PT was a better part of my stay. I removed myself from the facility. I would not recommend it to anyone.

It took about a month to find the right place! The screening process for visitors on the weekends can take a long time because they ask to see your ID. The aides are very friendly and nice and my loved one is very happy with every one of the nurses. It is always very clean. He has been going to the dining room and he likes to sit and eat next to the window.

My loved one was not happy here but the therapy was good. I did not have a problem with friendliness. The head nurse was good but my loved one was given medication with the wrong combination of food. The food was terrible, he said he never tasted anything so bad. It did not look appetizing either. The aides told my loved one's roommate that they would have to wait until the morning to use the bathroom because it was too late in the evening. I think they are understaffed. There are some aides that are good. The bathroom was a little bit dirty. We did not get any updates.

The facility is clean. They are understaffed and there are only certain nurses and CNA's who were helpful. The rest could care less. The ice machine is broken on the floor that my loved one is on. The doctor said ice should be given as needed. It takes a couple of hours for help from the aides. There was a mix up on my loved one's medication. Everybody needs to improve their communication. There is a total communication problem and they should not have accepted her at the intake time that they did since they were totally not prepared. No one from PT showed up to evaluate my loved one and they were supposed to show up. PT would not let the nurses have the gel packs because the nurses would throw them out. My loved one was supposed to have ice packs available to her. I was not happy with my loved one being there.

She seems happy with the therapy. They got her in the correct wheelchair right away and they are exercising her hand. They are getting her up and moving! The aides are very nice and friendly. The TV doesn't have a channel guide and makes it difficult to figure out what channel things are going to be on. The nursing care seems fine and it seems to be very clean. The meals that my loved one got were good. My loved one liked that you had an option to go to the cafeteria or stay in your room but it isn't an option on the weekends. I have been playing phone tag with the ST. I tried to get in contact with them about a prescription and I went to their office and I still have not heard from the ST. Sometimes it is hard to get in touch with people on the weekend at the nurse's station.

The therapy and their method of providing it, I think is very good. They help my mother in the process of her doing it. They really do take good care to make sure she is comfortable. They are very gracious in doing it. She's really excited when she goes. She is very grateful that she is up and walking. The aides are lovely and it's a clean environment. They are very interested in keeping the dialog open. I really appreciate that. It's a little too much food for my mother.

It is very hard to get into contact with anyone especially the doctor. They are very good about calling if its to sign papers or do something for their end but they are impossible to reach otherwise. My father didn't like the woman that he worked with in therapy. The aides act like they don't want to be bothered. My father could not get the staff to get him a blanket so he called me. They don't serve the kinds of food my father likes to eat.

I would definitely recommend the facility. We had a very difficult time but it could be because of our own decisions. The rehab has been going along rather well. The doctor was very good. I also know a friend who is at the facility and this friend is TOTALLY satisfied. The people who were there were very friendly but maybe they are also short staffed. There can be an excessively long wait at times for something that needed to be done right then especially going to the bathroom. Unfortunately for my husband the meals were disastrous.

The PT is good for her but the only thing she is not getting the property nutrition. It is good. It depends on the nurse. They are overwhelmed there. It is clean and I got on them about cleaning the floor in her room. I went up there a couple of times and I could not identify what she was eating. I played phone tag with the social worker last week. I have not had a solid communication with the doctor. My mother was there in the summer and they may have had a different crew at that time with better care then compared to what it is now.

They need a better method of communication between shifts and family. The physical therapist and occupational therapist are doing a wonderful job. Some of the staff are doing an excellent job. Some of them are absolutely excellent and go above beyond. One in particular talks to my mother and engages with her and makes her smile. My mothers face lights up when she sees certain staff. Everyone is very friendly. They way they have their welcome set up is really nice. Everyone comes in a greets you. They try to make you feel welcomed on the first day. It appears very clean. The food is very good. They give her a lot of food. And there's a lot of options. The shifts don't communicate with each other though.
