They have very good physical therapists at Life Care Center of Orange Park. My mother was in there in November and couldn’t walk at all, and they got her walking and moving. They listen to me. I am over there every day, so they know me well. If I have any concerns, I can meet with the caregivers in her room and the therapists. The lady in the admin office and I are on a first-name basis. They have been very responsive to me and listened to what the hospital told them to do with her food. The response and help I got from the admin office in getting her in there was great. Melissa in the administration and the admitting office has been wonderful.
I'm changing doctors from Dr Luis, who was assigned to my mother. He has sent her to the hospital next door twice, by ambulance, which is hugely expensive. For no reason. He tells me she has pneumonia --this was oinn Dec, and the hospital kept her overnight and sent her back on Christmas weekend, asking me why she was there. There is no pneumonia. Heart is steady for her age. No reason to be there. Today, he sent her again to the hospital, stating pneumonia and heart. Again, the doctor at the hospital said No Pneumonia. No change in her heart. Why was she there??? Dr Luis also told me he asked her who I was this morning and she had no idea. When I told her what he said, her jaw dropped. He wrote dementia on his send out sheet to the hospital -- which is far from the truth. I have no idea why he told me that, and my mother was furious with him.
This doctor is irresponsible and apparently can't read the hospital reports or the X-Ray --he told me her X-Ray showed pneumonia all week. Which was proved false by the doctors at the hospital. So two times pulled out and ambulanced to the hospital on his whim. I've had it with this one.
My mother's glasses have been missing from her room since Jan 2; and it has taken two weeks for their 'food police' to decide she can actually have regular food instead of the pureed mystery meal they've pushed on her. I keep taking her cheese burgers for lunch --she eats regular food just fine. So they changed her food back to regular two days ago, but the kitchen apparently can't read instructions either. Hopefully this has finally been corrected today --I'll find out when she calls me about what she gets for dinner and whether she sends it back again!
My mother tells me the night staff are loud and noisy, so I told her to have them shut her door. I'm there every day, so the day people know me now. I get very good responses from them, as I don't hesitate to ask them or direct any concerns I have to them.

My family member was transported to Life Care Center from the hospital in the evening. Life Care Center knew days in advance my family member was coming, that they had special needs, and that they had meds that were needed and not provided until a day later. The CNA on duty took the "CARE" out of Caregiver.

I went to visit my mother-in-law at Life Care Center of Orange Park. The staff were marvelous and very attentive. The rooms are very nice and very clean. They were immaculate in fact.

A friend of mine, an RN, had his elderly mother in this facility after a stroke. The family and patient were pleased w/ the care.
