Dad had a heart valve operation and a stroke after the operation, so he went into Apple Rehab Watertown. They were wonderful there, but we found that there was not enough staff to take care of him. Sometimes, he was left by himself when he needed some help, and we didn’t truly like that. Other than that though, they were very cooperative.
They did the best they could with him. They did some psychological testing with him, and he was sitting with somebody and talking because he had lost his wife a year before. In the end, we made some wonderful liaisons with some of the nurses that were there. They were very good and fooled around with him, making him laugh, joking about the Red Sox and the Yankees, and they kept his spirits up. My friend’s mother was in there at the same time, and they said the same thing.
It wasn’t a private room. Sometimes, you came in and they were dueling with the television volumes, and it was kind of crowded.

Overall this facility appears quite nice. The nursing staff professionalism lacks. often times poor judgement has left my family member in vulnerable health risky situations. Their Rehabilitation dept was excellent and taught wonderful life saving skills. Nurses aides needed more training and accountability. It seems poor management originated at the top of this one particular facility placing patients at risk.

From my personal experience this facility is well run and kept clean. The grounds to this place are well kept and have a nice outdoor sitting area for residents. The amenities in this place vary by personal opinion and taste. One thing that is good is all the activities they have scheduled for the seniors such as bingo, art classes and movie night. The downfall to the amenities would be the food. My grandmother often complained about the bland taste and lack of creativity. This could also be personal opinion but on some visits, I looked at the food and it didn't look that appealing. Also I gave them 3 stars because of the food and because of certain employees they have working there. My grandmother often complained about the lack of professionalism and how some workers treated her disrespectfully. I don't think this goes for all the employees as some nurses I met were very friendly and seems to do a very good job. Overall I think this facility is nice but just needs to add a little more effort to the food and make sure the staff is always trained on how to handle guests.

I visited this facility
My mother owns a healthcare agency and had a client in this facility. While working with my mother's company for several years, I had a few experiences in this nursing home. It was always clean, smelled good, and has a few small areas for the residents to sit outside of their rooms. Although the nurses always seemed somewhat friendly and personable, my experiences always left me with the impression that they needed to be managed a bit better. They seemed a bit lazy. The nurses got to things when they felt like it and I felt as though there wasn't really anyone watching over them or creating a schedule. The care at the facility, however, was good and I never saw anything that would raise an alarm as unsafe or unhealthy. Overall, I would recommend Apple Rehab to another client or a client's family.
