MY DAD WAS HERE FOR 11 DAYS AND GOT SUCH HORRIBLE CARE THAT I TRUELY FEEL SORRY FOR THE POOR PEOPLE THAT REMAIN THERE. HIS DIAPER WAS NOT CHANGED FOR HOURS ON END. HE HAD ONLY ONE SHOWER DURING HIS STAY AND HIS TEETH WERE NEVER BRUSHED. WHEN WE ASKED THE STAFF IF THEY COULD BRUSH HIS TEETH THEY TOOK HIM BACK ONLY TO BRING HIM OUT WITH THE SAME CRUMBS ON HIS FACE AND FOOD IN HIS FRONT TEETH. MY DAD NEVER FELL IN HIS LIFETIME UNTIL HE STAYED THERE. HE FELL 4 TIMES WHILE IN THE CARE OF ELDERCREST. ONE FALL WAS BAD ENOUGH THAT HE WAS SENT TO HAVE A CT SCAN TO MAKE SURE HIS HEAD WAS OK. I WAS ALERTED BY ONE OF THE STAFF THAT MY DAD'S URINE WAS DARK BROWN. I TOLD THE NURSES SO THEY COULD GET A URINE SAMPLE AND CHECK FOR A UTI. MY DAD WAS PRONE TO THEM AND THEY EFFECTED HIM TERRIBLY. IT TOOK 8 DAYS OF ME ASKING THE STAFF AND GOING TO THE DIRECTIOR TWICE FOR THEM TO FINALLY FIND OUT THAT YES, HE HAD AN INFECTION!!!!! AND MY DAD NEEDED FED AND WHEN THEY COULD FINALLY FIND THE STAFF TO FEED HIM, HIS FOOD WAS ICE COLD. MY DAD HAD AN ALARM ON HIS BED TO LET STAFF KNOWN WHEN HE GOT UP BUT ON AT LEAST THREE OCCASIONS I ARRIVED TO FIND THE BELL BLASTING WITH NO ONE EVEN PAYING IT ANY MIND. THEY SAID THEY COULD NOT HEAR IT AT THE FRONT DESK WITH MY DADS ROOM BEING AT THE VERY END OF THE HALL. THEY SAID THEY COULD NOT CHANGE HIS ROOM BECAUSE THE BEDS WERE FULL SO I THOUGHT WHAT GOOD WAS THE ALARM??? MY DAD WAS LIKE A VEGETABLE WHILE HE WAS THERE. HIS HEAD HANGING OVER TO THE SIDE. WE WERE SICK OF WHAT WE SAW SO WE TOLD THEM WE WERE GOING TO TAKE HIM HOME. OH WOW!!!! THEY TRIED EVERYTHING TO KEEP HIM THERE SAYING HE WOULD NOT BE SAFE AT HIS HOME. ARE REPLY WAS THAT HE IS NOT SAFE AT ELDERCREST!!!!! THEY THREATENED THAT IF WE TOOK HIM HOME AGAINST THEIR WISHES, THEY WOULD NOT PROVIDE ANY OUT SIDE RESOURCES AND HE COULD NOT HAVE ANY PRESCRIPTIONS FOR THE MEDS THAT HE WAS ON. WHAT?????? HE WAS ON AN ANTIBIOTIC AND IT IS DANGEROUS TO STOP IT IN THE MIDDLE OF ITS COURSE. PLEASE, IFYOU LOVE YOUR FAMILY MEMBER, DON'T LET THEM STAY HERE.

Upon entering my Aunts room, I found the garbage can overflowing, the floor was filthy and her bedside tray dirty. Her bedside commode was not emptied For the majority of the day. The nursing staff and Aides were inadequate. Giving very poor care and attention to the patients. I would NEVER recommend this place.

I have to say I didn't relive what a great rehab this would be.I pleasantly surprised how caring and compassionate everyone is all the way to the top of management.When I got there was I was still in a lot of pain but my nurse that day was linda and she was wonderful and I felt very comfortable and felt I was in very good hands.I highly recommend this facility.even the head of the kitchen Gary came to my room and make sure my needs were met due to my diabetes.Everday all of the staff greeted me a smile and kind words I really think it's a great staff.I truly was pleasantly surprised and very happy that I chose eldercrest it is much much more than a nursing home.

My husband, at 52, had to have skilled nursing care for the last month or so of his life. We, along with his Dr, decided on Eldercrest. The staff and medical attention that he received while there, was excellent. Very caring and always looking to see if the family needed anything as well. I have highly recommended this home to quite a few people and will continue to do so.

We had both of our parents in the rehabilitation program. The therapist who worked with them were excellent. However the nursing staff, aides, and workers were less than adequate. We had to pull both of our parents out of there due to them becoming sicker than when they went in. We were told we were pulling them out against medical advice and had the ambulance take them to the ER. Both of them were very sick one with Pnemonia, and the other with aspirative pneumonia. Constantly they were not checked on, or showered. A family member had to be around at all times in order to make sure they were getting the care they needed.
