Reviews of Medical Care Center

I am an employee
I work at Heartland Lynchburg nursing home and I love my job. It is a very rewarding job. The residents have the best life stories to tell. I recommend this place to everyone. I've even had my own family stay here for the rehab services they offer. The rehab team is really very good.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My dad is a resident of the Medical Care Center of Lynchburg. Our family has had experience with three facilities in the Lynchburg area. Of the three, this one has been my least favorite. I was impressed with the attending physician and physical therapist. The nurses and CNAs did not possess the quality or professionalism I would like to have seen in this field.The building has some age on it. My grandmother was in this facility 25 years ago as well. The rooms are sparsely furnished and cramped. There is very little room for visitors to stand or sit. The facility has a looming institutional smell to it. The beds have no rails to keep the patients from falling out, however, nurses explained that this is because of state regulations. Instead, they lower the beds as close to the floor as possible and put mats beside the bed in case of accidents. It would also be nice if they had private entrances and exits for the funeral homes who come to pick up deceased patients. I passed a stretcher with a deceased patient while entering the building and shared the same elevator with them as well. It would be nice for the deceased and family of the deceased to have a little more privacy during a time like that.The center is convenient to the hospital and dialysis center. The food is exceptionally good.

I visited this facility
My grandmother was a resident at this facility for 6 months until she passed away. I am a CNA and liked this facility more than the facility I trained at. It was clean and well layed out, easy to navigate. The staff were very friendly, helpful, courteous, and compassionate. The nurse was available to talk to me about my concerns and questions about my grandmother's care. I believe she was well taken care of, and the facility did not seem to me to be understaffed, as some are. They do offer rehabilitation therapy which my grandmother seemed happy with while she was participating. I would not hesitate to recommend Medical Care Center in Lynchburg to someone, if they are looking at this type of option for themselves or a loved one.
