I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
My dad was sent to this rehab center from the hospital he had 3 broken ribs and 1 day when I was visiting him and taking to the nurse for that day about dad and she did not even know he had broken ribs and the cna thought it was the opposite side. They would keep him sitting in the wheelchair from breakfast to after lunch which caused him a lot of pain. He got 2 UTI's in the 3 weeks he was there. We had him transfer to the hospital and when the emt"s were there and they were asking me question about dad I was informed he was at the ER over the weekend and I Was Not contacted about this! So Wrong!! Once he was admitted to the hospital in the PCU united we found out he was sepsis and the infection was in his blood. Thank God he puled through and was able to go back to his ALP place. There were some nurses who were great with dad but there is a lack of communication at this place. He will never go to this place again! I hope this info helps other families so no one else experiences these issues.

I visited this facility
My husband was sent from the hospital to the rehabilitation center of Wuesthoff Progressive. The staff were very amenable and caring. The atmosphere was just so positive. There were occupational and physical therapists. They took him for exercises for an hour everyday. There were goals for every exercise. The food was just okay. I also visited their nursing home. It was well-decorated inside and out. It looked nice and fine.

I knew from day 1 this wasn't the best place. If we tried to get help in the room it would take 30 to 50 minutes and sometimes no one would come. They acted like we were bothering them. They didn't notice my father had a fever and turned on the AC! I asked for someone to check his temp and sure enough he had a temp of 104 and was off to the ER. If I hadn't said anything I don't think my dad would have made it to the morning. The ER actually asked how he got to this and why nothing was done. I don't want any other families to go through what we did. We have a long road ahead of us because of that infection. It massively effected my father, mentally and physically and there is no doubt in my mind they are to blame. It breaks my heart that these people are in charge of elderly care and Heath. I feel bad for anyone that doesn't have friends or family to be their voice and eyes and ears. my dad left worst then how he went in!

My mother-in-law was in and out of Wuestoff Progressive Care Center probably for a year and a half. The care was okay. It's not like the care that she would receive at home, but it was okay for her. Sometimes they're just slow about getting things done, things that you request. And I realize they have more than just one person to take care of. There are many, many patients to one nurse, but it was fine. I wouldn't have given it an A+ rating, but it was livable.

When my grandmother became sick in 2010 the family had a hard choice to make ; do we try to keep her at home or choose a nursing home for around the clock care . Needless to say we were all nervous about the nursing home idea ,however, my father was not capable of taking of my grandmother on his own and rest of the family was to distant to provide immediate care. When one first hears the word nursing home bad image come to mind particularly ones of substandard care and abusive staff. Yet, the choice had been made and we had to come together to find facility that could provide quality care physically and emotionally .On the recommendation of a home health aide we discovered Wuesthoff Progressive Care Center located in Viera,Florida. During the first visit we noticed immediately that there was security provided and each guest and worker were required to be checking for the day ,Secondly, we noticed that the place was clean from top to bottom not only on the outside but also the inside from the front room to kitchen, and the patient rooms. There staff ranging from nurses to administrative personnel were constantly in the area. The staff was friendly and immediately introduce themselves. The facility had different recreational areas for the residents to watch television or play games. Residences also had access to the patio area with staff monitoring if they wanted to sit outside. Feeling as if we could trust this facility; which had great credentials we elected to place my grandmother here. That first week we were all anxious about her care and well being let me assure you that we didn't stay worried for long . My father begin to make frequent stops throughout the day and night to see my grandmother and was greeted with open arms . The staff told my father he was free to come at any time he like which my father did. On each unannounced visit my father said he found my grandmother clean and well situated and on several visits he would find her in physical rehab. The staff would even come and take my grandmother for strolls outside in her wheelchair. As a E.R nurse I was impress by how fast the staff would come to assist the residents with request and how well organized they were with there routines. I must say the Wuesthoff Progressive Care Center was a great asset to my family during my grandmothers last days. I would recommend this facility any day for those seeking help for there love ones.
