Everything is good. They come to help her. They have patience with her. We have no complaints and she is happy. It is clean and it nice. She loves the meals. They called me right away to give me information. All of the staff are real kind.

I like the fact that she had a place to go to for help. We walked in and signed her in and it was not a problem accessing it. She does not seem unhappy to me. They spoke with us when we came and helped. She had a complaint with the food. My mother did not like it and they did not help right away.

They did bring me my medications on time. The food was good. The meals were well rounded and tasted good. I was impressed by that. They don't seem to keep things clean throughout the day. I had to have a family member come in and clean the bathroom for me. They only change the bedding once a week. They make the beds up, but don't change the sheets day to day. When you ring the bell for help, it could take 15-20 minutes to get help. The weekend was worse.

I really like Kearsley and so does my husband. My husband said the care was great and has no problem with it. They make sure he gets his PT. They work him hard and he's doing what he needs to do. He says the nursing care is good too. He says the staff are all very nice. It is clean and I have seen them cleaning. The meals come even if he is not there.

The rehab therapy is fantastic. Also the social worker has been fabulous. It seems like there is no regard for patients from the nurses and nurses' aides. They yell in the hallways. They are the only ones who can manage his medication and it is dreadful. The nurses have attitudes.

They are giving my sister everything she needs and that is important for her. They are giving her what she needs to eat. They have not had to call me and everything is fine. They are all pretty friendly.

I am a care nurse so I am aware of how these facilities are run. I have recommended the facility to others. It is a good facility with good care. Two of the nurses are very nice and very good! The food is hot and good. Communication needs improvement though. I have to ask questions, especially the rehab department. I shouldn't have to help with his care as far as them asking me questions.

It seems as though it was a rough start and things are starting to smooth out. The facility has not reached out to me at this point to give me updates or inform me on her care as well as a plan. In the beginning, my niece felt as though the staff was ignoring her and it was difficult getting on the right meal plan. However, things have since smoothed out.

In the beginning, it was fantastic and at the end it was terrible. My mother was there for rehab. She got sick when she was there and they just left her there in the bed and the doctor and nurses did nothing to help her and then she was taken to the ER per our request. They gave us a run around until we demanded that they call the ambulance. The staff were pretty friendly though. The meals were good according to my mother.

Every time I called they were very good to me. I spoke with two nurses on two different occasions. My friend did speech therapy. He was doing well at that time. Anytime I called they always answered my questions.

The experience was fine until the end. The staff were super. The cleanliness was okay. She did not eat the food. My wife was supposed to be transported in the ambulance in a wheelchair and not the stretcher and she was in a lot of pain because of this issue.

So far it has gone pretty well. I would recommend Kearsley Rehab to a friend. The only issue we had was when my brother was admitted he had an order for pain meds, and he never received pain meds until a few days after admission so this caused a delay in him being able to do physical therapy. So far it has gone very well for him aside from the hiccup in the beginning.

We like the nurse. It is very clean and nice. The bathroom and her room is clean. She is on puree and the meals are good. The doctor and case worker calls me.

My husband is still at the facility. It is an okay facility. It does have hospital food. He eats it but it is bland. It takes a long time for the staff to answer call lights. At one point my husband waited so long while he was using the restroom that he attempted to walk by himself. They don't communicate with me enough about his care. They are supposed to change his bandages twice a day and I noticed they weren't changing the bandages.

They are treating my mother right and helping her get better. They are doing things to help her get back on her feet. She is making progress. They are caring, loving and respectful. The staff seem like they are real good people. They are all respectful. They seem very helpful and the staff is very helpful. I like the place. We like the therapist especially.

I approve of the care there. I have had several friends there. My sister says the therapy is going alright. Every time I have been there, I find the place very well kept. The food has to be good and she likes to eat. She has not complained. She wants to try and stay there permanently. They've communicated well with me.

I was impressed with the cleanliness. It's very clean. The rehab is good. But we had to ask for a walker. My sister was ready to use it, and we had to ask it. It took a while before she was able to see the social worker. I worked in a nursing home for several years, the nurses here are not all that friendly. Walking down the hall, they don't speak much. The place I was at, the staff always acknowledged the visitors and said hello. They gave my sister 60 pages of paperwork for her to sign. It was a lot. I think they could have relayed that better, on what that was about. Maybe some sort of cover letter, it might not have seemed as overwhelming.

My sister said the therapists are doing good and she is happy with the rehab services. The nurses are never around but there are a couple are nice and caring. Overall they seem to be very nice. It seems clean and she said the food is good. Whoever they hire for maintenance in there needs to change. I told the ladies that it smelled on the side of her room mate and it stilled smelled after they cleaned it up.

The nurses are really good there. All the people who care for my mom are good. They have really good CNAs and they are really good with my mom. I spoke with PT this morning and they explained things to me and I like that. Even when I go in the nurse will speak with me. They seem to have time for you. The only thing I am waiting for is the speech therapist - they need to evaluate my mom, but everybody else is good. It is clean in there and I do like that. I am very happy with the cleanliness. The meals are good too.

I am familiar with Kearsley for many years and we are very happy with the services they are providing. My son is very happy with the therapy services. The times I have been there I found it to be very clean and they take care of incidents immediately. My sister is very happy and she has her meals in her own apartment.
