This facility offers skilled nursing and rehab services.
It's set off of a main street in Sunnyvale, in a residential neighborhood"”and parking is horrible; you often have to circle and park several blocks away.
Most staff members are forthcoming, but only after they're pried a little for information. They do hold regular care conferences for the residents, but are not necessarily forthcoming with information outside of that.
The place itself is clean"”and offers physical therapy inhouse.
Although the hallways give the place a rather institutional feel, the rooms look much like homey bedrooms. Residents are encouraged to decorate them to add their own personal touches.
There is an RN on staff 24/7, but at times, it doesn't seem like an adequate number of staff members to provide good care and safety.
The food is average"”and lacks options for those who request them. And there are activities offered, especially for the rehabilitation patients, but not much to engage the skilled nursing residents beyond occasional music therapy.
One of my residents was deep into Alzheimer's and she lived in terror. The staff was responsive, at least after prompting by a concerned family member. Another younger resident was treated well"”given Internet access and a cellphone, but again, there was an outside advocate involved in requesting them.
This might not be a good fit for someone who needs 24-hour supervision, such as behavioral problems, since the staff ratio seems somewhat lacking.
Manorcare accepts Medi-Cal and Medicare. Otherwise, the cost is average for the area"”about $6,000 to $8,00 monthly.
