I visited this facility
I visited the Florin Health Care Center several times over the past 3 years. My grandmother lived there before she decided to move back to her home town in Kansas. I was very satisfied with Florin Health Care Center. The neighborhood that it is located in isn't the best, but the caring staff makes up for that. There wasn't a time when I walked into the building and wasn't greeted with a smile by whoever was working the front desk. The staff who worked with my grandmother in her room was very accommodating and very caring to my grandmother. There was a very diverse group of staff at the Florin Health Care Center, and I really appreciated that as well. My grandmother loves to play bingo, and this facility had enough recreation for the elderly to keep them busy and to allow them to have some fun. I am very happy with my grandmother's stay at the Florin Health Center.

Florin HealthCare Center, a skilled nursing home, is located in South Sacramento off I-5 to Florin Road -East, crossing 47th Avenue. Florin HCC is 15 minutes from downtown Sacramento. It is within a mile of stores, and restaurants. My familiarity relates to evaluating some of their higher functioning residents in my assisted living home. Thus, I am pretty familiar with this community. The facility is in a pleasant residential area. Surrounded by many trees, Florin has a beautiful patio suited for parties, and BBQ’s. The area is alarmed for safety purposes as more than half the residents have Alzheimer’s Dementia, and tend to wander. Inside the facility it is a cheerfully painted, and quiet but lively. It may suffer from being an older building. Florin is a moderate size nursing home, whose goals are to return home as many clients as capable. The nursing staff is earthy, and friendly to residents and guest. Many of the staff have worked there a while, and treat the home, and residents like family you truly care about. Sometimes odor can be an issue; and a quicker response to clean-up would be a fair expectation. One could wish that the resident rooms were larger. Placing three residents to a room is most uncomfortable, making vists and care giving difficult. Resident rooms are too institutional at this point. Still resident care is above average. Meals are delicious, prepared by a registered dietician. Residents and staff swear by the quality of meals. All types of diets can be cared for. Administration is very good, have an open door policy, quickly responding to resident, and community concerns. It has been my pleasure to observe the activity program. What activities noted, are excellent, upbeat, and stimulating. It does appear they could use more variety, and individualize programs more for the needs of their large Alzheimer’s resident population. That being said, the loving care of the staff, and the general atmosphere, far exceeds the few negatives beyond the staffs control. I give Florin a 4 on a scale of 1 to 5, 5 being the best.
