If you are looking for a place to put your loved one and are confused by all the reviews, JOIN THE CLUB. When my family and I needed to place my dad in a nursing home, the reviews confused us. One person would have a good review, the next one was a bad one. With advice from the case manager at the hospital, we placed my father in Kindred in Aurora. We were not sure what to expect and since we had always provided care for him, our expectations were high. My brothers and I visited frequently at different times of the days to see how he was taken care of. I wanted to share some of the positive and negatives. Negatives: They only change their "diapers" a few times a day. Dad ended up with a nasty rash from them being wet so often. Mealtime is a challenge as there are very few staff to feed the residents who need assistance. I put a note on his closet that the family would do his laundry; however, his clothes still seemed to disappear. They are not quick in responding to the call buttons....normally takes about 15 minutes AND I will see staff sitting around with the call lights going off. Positives: Not that there can be anything positive about having to put your loved one in any type of facility, this one had many positives. Every staff member knew him by name and would say HI to him while passing by. His primary caretaker ALWAYS seemed to be there when I was there and dad really enjoyed him! I had a difficult time during his deterioration and one of the RN's (yes, I said an RN) came in and sat by me during her break and let me cry on her shoulder. They had a new Director of Nursing start while my dad was there and she listened to all our concerns and made sure that they were addressed. My dad deteriorated quickly and on a Friday his organs started shutting down. The Director of Nursing called me and stated that we needed to get there quickly. They moved him into a private room so that our family could spend his final moments with him. We did not have hospice to help us with this, but you wouldn't know it with the care that my dad received. They also brought us water, coffee and answered any questions that we had. We were with him when he passed on Sunday morning and they were crying right along with us. Now my mom is a resident at Kindred. She is in a different area; however, the staff that took care of my dad stops in to say HI to her and see how she is doing. Nobody can ever take care of your loved one like you would and nothing will ever be 100% perfect. There will be good days and bad days but all in all, we are pleased with the care that both my parents have received.

It was very nice and clean, but it didn't have the best of care in the lock-up. In the lock-up, they didn't feed the residents. If they slept at the table, they would put the food back in the cupboard and take them back to the kitchen. That's why I went there to feed my husband. My husband had ten or twelve pairs of stockings, but I saw him with his bare feet and shoes. They didn't know what they were doing.
