I am a friend or relative of resident
My grandmother was admitted here for short term rehab. She quickly got better and was ready to go home but the Administration would not release her even with the doctor's order. She ended up staying there for 70 days, and got depressed and disoriented. It took me having to call Christine, the Administrator herself and demand that my grandmother be discharged. This facility, in my opinion, keeps their patient for rehab longer than they should. They will milk the system and use up the whole 100 days allowed by Medicare and Medical even if the patient does not need it. They are unethical and not pro active in planning the patient's discharge early on. Anyone who wishes to admit their loved ones here should be pro active in discharge planning from day one. Talk to the admitting Doctor, the Social Worker, and the Director of Nursing and let them know of your expectations. Do not let them dictate to you how long the resident should stay. If the resident had met her goal, it is always best for the resident to return home.

My friend, Virginia, spent several months at the Pittsburg Care Center after she fell and broke her leg. I visited her two or three times a week, and was very impressed with the quality of her care. The facility was always clean and fresh smelling. The staff was pleasant and seemed happy with their jobs. Once when I was there early, the cook came in and asked the new arrivals their preferences--favorite and least favorite foods. When I asked Virginia why, she said that if someone's ""least favorite"" was on the menu, she would substitute one of their ""favorites."" Those are the basics. They also had: cooking, music and craft classes. They had bingo day and ""game day,"" and popcorn and hot dog day. When I talk with Virginia now about it, she actually sounds a little nostalgic. In my opinion, this is what assisted living SHOULD be.
