BeAware! June 24, 2015
I am a friend or relative of resident
***Be aware of several things: Upon admission, they do NOT tell you that upon the 21st day of rehab, you will be charged an additional $150.00 per day because Medicare co-payment is reduced beginning day 21. If they "feel like" notifying you, they might, but in my case they waited until 18 days later to tell me they had been charging this amount to my bill. When I called to talk with 1 of the corporate vice presidents, he said "they're supposed to", but they feel no responsibility or conscience to make sure it IS done.
Be advised to check and DOUBLE-CHECK the medications they put your family member on and the Care Plan that is posted in the room. Question it and make sure they FOLLOW it! I had to make sure a private caregiver was there most of the time when I couldn't be there because for the first 10 days, no one knew what the other one was doing.
I suggest you RECORD your admission interview and do not sign anything unless you read every single word, even though they'll say, "this basically says...".
Lastly, the current administrator is sadly lacking in people skills. Ask any person and/or employee there. Now, for something positive...the rehab OTs and PTs do a great job and are truly committed to rehabbing your family member. For them, I give 5 STARS.

I visited this facility
The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were able to answer all my questions and were very reassuring of their facilities accommodations. The administrator, Conjuna Collier, was very informative and even let me meet some of the staff that would be caring for my grandmother. The only negative thing I can say about this facility is cost but who doesn't complain about the cost of living in a facility such as this one!
