I have a family member currently rehabbing at HFV. The care of the daytime and evening nurses is poor. The previous remarks of it taking a very long time for call lights to be answered is 100% true. I have experienced it myself. The card my family member is given in terms of basic needs like hygiene and assistance is awful. I have had to wash and dress my family member myself for lack of HFV doing so, Meals are late and I have heard other residence complain how awful the nursing staff is. This place has changed and not for the better. There is a culture of not caring that is present. I would not recommend HFV Rehab to anyone with a family member who needs more than just rehab care because HFV does not care.

My Mother went to the rehab facility after a knee replacement. It was recommended by her physician because she lives alone. This is a poorly run, dirty facility. No one responds when you push the call button. Dr ordered Tylenol to be dispensed as needed. She waited at least an hour after requesting for pain. Floors are sticky. Staff is unhelpful. I had to corner a doctor and voice concerns as my mom had been there 4 days with no therapy. I would not recommend this facility.

My dad is in Henry Ford Village. It's one of the best as far as the quality. It's pretty expensive but it's very, very nice. Their work so far has been great. Everything has been perfect without any problems at all. Their food is excellent. They have different one- or two-bedrooms. The one-bedroom has an open kitchen, one large living room, and a walk-in closet and bedroom. They have cards, chess clubs, singing clubs, and musical groups.

Henry Ford Village was very nice and had a lot of activities going on. The facility was tremendous. The staff took time out to talk to me, toured me around, and were very nice. They told me their experiences of residents and how the residents respond to them. The rooms were laid out very nicely, but I would have to buy new furniture. The activities were very interesting. Every Friday or Saturday night, there's a group that goes to a jazz bar here in Detroit.

I’ve looked at six places and Henry Ford Village is the best of all of them. Everything is excellent. The residents all appeared happy as I walked through. There are three separate dining rooms.

Henry Ford Village was one of the top places I’ve toured in terms of amenities and dining. They have a bank on the premises, a beauty parlor, a store, and a recording studio. They have an underground hallway to get you from one building to another. I ate there on two different occasions and the food was excellent. They have three different dining rooms and a regulation-size swimming pool. The staff couldn’t have been more excellent in their treatment of the residents. The residents at the independent living facility are the ones making the decisions about what activities they want to do. I checked out two different kinds of rooms that were very well designed. The staff was very open with me and gave me the costs of joining their community and a continuum care contract.

This is the worst rehab facility I have ever been in. It is dirty, the nurses and staff are unkempt and untrained, or if they are trained, they ignore their training. My poor father suffered a stroke and was placed here to get well. He only got worse. He would literally wait for hours when signaling with his light that he needed help. Often, he needed to use the restroom and ended up having an accident simply because the nurses refused to respond. The floors are filthy. When you walk through the activity room or dining room, your shoes stick to the floor. Even the outside of the rehab building is a mess. Bird droppings are everywhere, especially near the benches where residents and visitors sit. Yard debris is left unswept, flowers are not watered. I don't know how they stay licensed, let alone in business. DO NOT place your loved one here. You will regret it.

Henry Ford Village Inc. was very fancy, and you grow into it; you buy a place, and as you get older and have needs, they have various programs that you can get various types of help. You can move in there and be absolutely just retired, but you can buy other services as you need them. It was very expensive and very lovely. It was a bedroom, living room, very small kitchen, and a bathroom, and it was very well appointed. They have lovely furniture, and they have room too. If you want to bring some of your lovely things, you can bring them. It was very lovely, and I have nothing negative to say about it. They have thousands of activities if you want to do them. You can take one, two, or three meals a day in another building. It was all very genteel.

Hello, my mother stayed here after suffering a stroke for rehab. This place is horrible. The night care and a lot of the nurses in the rehab building really need to get training in care of patients. These are older fragile people(mothers,fathers,grandparents) not prisoners. Nurses have heavy attitudes when asked something. The bed side care is horrible. Very very inexperienced for the regards of patient care. Very disappointed with this place.

Henry Ford is close to our house. My grandmother is in a shared room, but it's clean. The attitude of the staff seemed to be okay. The dining area is okay. My grandmother seemed happy there.

We placed my mother in Henry Ford Village. We chose this community because she has some friends there. The best thing about the community is the proximity to my mother's own neighborhood and the people that she was close to in the area. With regards to the staff and the services, it depends on the person; some are very good, and some are just OK. The rooms are nice and clean. The food in the independent living area is better than the food in the assisted living area.

My grandmother lives in Henry Ford. She has been there for 20 years now. They have all three levels of care ? senior living, assisted living, and skilled care. It is all self-contained, so without going outside, she could be in the doctor's office and then assisted living and then the nursing home. She never has to leave the compound. This place is safe. It is also pleasant, attractive, and clean. They have beautiful grounds. The facility's sanitation is very nice. My grandmother is in a senior living apartment, and someone comes in and cleans her place every month. If I call, they will go and check on her, and that's very nice. They have plenty of activities; however, she doesn't want to participate. Also, the food there is excellent.

Henry Ford Village was excellent. The staff was competent and courteous. My friend who resides there is very satisfied. They have about three or four restaurants and the food is excellent. They have everything there.
