The food is always cold, not properly cooked, and not appetizing. The Health Aides can be nasty and impatient at times. Majority of the staff does not seem to care about the patients.

My Mom has been at the Lighthouse for a little over a year. She is very comfortable and happy. She is an Alzheimer patient and this is a place where she feels safe and has a schedule which makes her feel secure. When we take her out on occasion she asks when we will be taking her back. Her roommate is her best friend now. The place is very clean and so is my Mom. The staff on the whole is very very good. The Aides are the best. I know it is a very hard job to deal with the elderly on a day to day basis. There are a few who could be a little more compassionate or maybe look for another job. My Mom receives excellent care and attention so I have no complaints. The food isn't the greatest but it is sure better than meals on wheels that the elderly receive when still at home! Just like anywhere some days the food is really good and some days just average. But my Mom is physically doing very well and her diet is fine. It's just the darn Alzheimer...

I have experienced this facility a few times over the past 2 years. It saddens me that there is no accountability in a lot of these places. The facility is clean, although it does usually smell when you walk in, floors are always clean and no rodents running around unlike other facilities. The staffing could be better. There are very few nurses and aides here that understand what compassion is. We experienced a few maybe 3 staff that were genuinely kind and compassionate. Some nurses are cold and talk down to you, difficult to get a straight answer to questions. Our laundry went missing and no matter how many times we asked they did not care, there was always an excuse. Food was not good. Pastrami sandwich and French fries for dinner is awful. The receptionist were very pleasant always smiling. Unfortunately if you have to be here you really need to remind staff that these are elderly sick people who need compassionate care and always stay on top of things because they may not.

My mother has been to Lighthouse Nursing Care Center a number of times for rehabilitation and she got to know the people that work there who have been there a long time. She likes it there and they like her. It's perfect because it's very close to home. She has been there four times over the past four years. They give very nice care. She really liked the staff, the physical therapist, nurses and medical assistants. They were good to her, and they've been so helpful to me too. Their office staff was very good; I like them.

Lighthouse is very, very nice. It is a small place but everybody there is very nice. Everyone is treated like family. The facility is nice and clean. It is also cheery and bright. It used to be an old hospital that was converted to a nursing home. They have a nice patio where they take their patients out on the nice days, even those who are limited in their beds. The nurses are absolutely wonderful. They're very caring toward everyone there and everyone is treated the same. They do have activities for their patients. They bring in entertainers. They have exercise classes, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. Even patients who are confined to their beds can also participate in some of their activities. They allow dogs in there for their patients.

I recently visited a resident at Lighthouse Nursing Care Center. In general, I thought Lighthouse Nursing Care Center was excellent. The grounds of the facility are well kept. The center is located on a main road in Revere, MA and is easily accessible by car. Across the street is a large parking lot available for visitor parking. When entering the facility there is someone at the door to greet you, sign you in, and direct you where to go. There is a common area as you walk past the front desk and this area is always full of residents sitting in chairs with their walkers or wheelchairs. This area can be a bit startling at first; however, the residents always look happy, clean, and are eager to greet you as well. The staff and management of the facility are responsive. Upon going to the nurse's station on the second floor, I was immediately greeted warmly and given assistance to find a resident. There were also residents out utilizing the common areas on the second floor. The shared residents' rooms are comfortable and have a home-like feel. I noticed the resident's room was a bright color and there were two nice wooden bureaus for each resident to use. There were personal effects displayed on the tray-table. While I was there, I noticed that the facility staff demonstrated patience and it was clear they had developed a caring and friendly relationship with a patient of mine who has dementia. Overall, Lighthouse Nursing Care Center is a wonderful place, and I would recommend it to everyone, especially individuals that may have cognitive issues/dementia who are looking for good quality long-term care as well as short-term rehabilitation.
