My Mother was at this facility and I can tell you first hand that she did not get even the basic care you would expect from a professional health care center. A few things that you should know are: they do not file any charges for transporting a patient to a doctor's appointment with Medicare. You will have to pay for it yourself. Some of the staff are very good especially the physical and occupational therapy staff while others could care less. They will let a patient sleep in a wet bed all night rather than help them to the bathroom. You can press the button for help but expect to wait at least 30 minutes before someone shows up if at all. A patients gowns and clothes will disappear and are never seen again. I realize that you have bad employees anywhere you go but in a facility like this it means that if you are not there all the time with your loved one then they are at the mercy of the staff. Some are caring and some just don't care at all! The worst thing of all is they only have one doctor for this very large facility and he only comes to visit on Fridays and only looks at the nurses reports. If the nurse doesn't mention anything in the report he won't even check on your loved one. Let me tell you I had to personally wait for hours to talk to the doctor about my Mom's problems because they cannot tell you when he might show up. Then I had to insist that he check on my Mom's condition because the nurse didn't mention any problems she was having. I waited until 8pm one night to see him. She passed away the next morning. I came to get her belongings the next morning and they could not even find them.

MY mother in law went to Alamance Health Care for rehabilitation after a long sickness left her very weak. I'll just say she was only there six day and she needed at least three weeks of rehabilitation, but we decided we could do better at home. First of all the place is not clean the staff is horrible when she buzzed for help it would be at least 15 min if they came at all then they acted like it was a burden, they tried to give her meds that she didn't need and that wasn't ordered by Dr if she hadn't been in her right mind who knows what would have happened. Plus not once did the Dr over Alamance Health Care come to her to check on her and I mean never so when we decided we had to get her out of there of course there were no questions ask they just signed the papers and we left. I hope this helps someone to make a decision on not putting their loved one in this horrible place it should be shut down.

We heard Alamance Healthcare Center was a good place. At that time, my mother was at the hospital because she fractured her back at the place she had been living, an assisted living, and I had to find a place quickly. A lot of people I know were there. The people are good. I've gotten to know quite a few of them. If you have a problem, you can go to them and talk about it and they try to fix it. The rooms are not dirty, but it's messy sometimes. I think they can do a lot better about the food.
