Do not be fooled by appearances. You leave your loved ones here at their own risk and perils. The assisted living facility (called Resnick) is absolutely BARE BONES. Staff could not care less about the residents. In fact, the residents care for one another better than the staff. Just stop and think about that... The first day we visited (early 2023) a resident walked in from outside using a walker. He had fecies smeared on his shorts and down the back of his legs. We nearly gagged on the odor. Did any staff member even turn to see who just came in, and do they need help? Of course not! The so-called Director of the facility is more concerned with appearances than any substantive issue. Every complaint we have is dismissed, with the attitude: if you don't like it, you can leave! My advice: RUN in the opposite direction! Do NOT entrust the welfare of your loved ones to MorseLife -- their rehab center is abysmal (despite the silverware and china), the staff uncaring, the administrative folks (social workers, etc.) uninterested if not outright aggressive! And that's just for short-term stays. Should you need long-term care, you must simply rely on God's Mercy if you have no choice but to leave them at Morse!

Very dissatisfied. One working elevator that was broken for all the residents in traditions . This is not acceptable.

Very poor security guards. A security guard gives me a hard time every time I need to communicate with my mother. All he does is eat, makes you wait until he's finish and then helps you at the gate. Then he also leaves the gate wide open. This security guard has created such a hostile and difficult environment and all I wanted to do is see my mother. He could've just rejected me but no he chose to create a hostile and difficult environment unnecessarily. Very poor customer service. Individuals like this shouldn't work for a reputable place this. I don't know his name, but I would've put it here. He's overweight and short. Very poor security guard

My mom is currently staying at MorseLife. It was excellent. Her stay was good, and I think the care was good. It's a beautiful facility, new, clean, and friendly. So I think she's as happy there as she can be. When you have to visit, you have to make an appointment for certain time slots. They're pretty flexible. I mean, if you're 30 minutes early or if you stay as late as you want. But I think the idea is not everybody coming in at once. The room she's staying at was a private room, air-conditioned, had a view outside with plants and stuff, a pretty nice view of a garden, and had a private bathroom. She had a TV with lots of channels, even ESPN. We're using Medicare. As far as price, it's quite expensive.

I went to MorseLife in Florida last year before the coronavirus. My visit was very good. I went to the senior living or the independent living and the nursing home. It was beautiful and the people were very nice. The apartments were lovely. The facilities were beautifully appointed and very enticing, and the care was very good. It was very clean. I really didn't have much to do with the staff, but they seemed very caring. The food was excellent.

The Communication is horrendous. They never answer the phone or return phone calls. They would not let us see our mother while she was coherent. It took hours to get her belongings back, but we did.

My mother was in rehab 1st due to a SEVERE fall at pace(their fault) then fell again and a yr and a half later fell again because the aides did not want to get the lift to help her from the bathroom. She had to have surgery and then ended up dying from COVID from someone there. I am in the medical field and I know we needed to be aware of our social life but obviously the people were not told that. You would think with the elderly they would of been a little more strict. By the way not one person after 4 yrs took any blame. 2 people gave their condolences and never heard from them again. Place appears great and kept well. But if something happens believe me you are doomed. Didn’t see my mom for 6 months.

My Aunt was admitted to the Rehab facility. She was sent to the hospital and left her purse at Morse Life. We called and we were assured the purse would be put in the safe. My Aunt has since passed away. We called Morse to arrange pick-up of the purse and they said it would be at the gate. We went to pick up it was not there. We called and they said they did not have it... they then stopped taking our calls.. we would like our loved ones purse with all of her personal information returned. We have since had to report to the authorities. Beware if you are sending your family member to this facility!!!!

My mother was at MorseLife. She seemed to be pleased with the whole thing. It was good. She was very comfortable there. They were good and very helpful. She was pleased. We weren't allowed to go in, because of the COVID thing. They kept us informed as to what her progress was, and everything else too. I wasn't able to meet anybody in person, but my mother said she liked them all. It was all covered by insurance.

This review is for Short Term Rehab. Why isn't this category on the list to choose from. The staff is very attentive to requests and helping. Very friendly, however I hear there is a lot of turnover. What can be done to correct that? The person I visited went to Physical Therapy one day and the therapist set her up to do a particular exercise. When she asked why she wasn't using weights like she had been, the therapist didn't know she uses weights. Do they keep records? Another day the RN nurse said that they were going to start weaning her off of oxygen and turn it DOWN to 3 or 3.5 liters. However she was on 2 liters. The nurse should have known how much oxygen she was on. If I didn't correct that, maybe they would have turned it up instead of down? Has anyone had similar experiences?

My mom is getting older and we need to put her into a nursing home. As much as we want to keep her at home and take care of her ourselves we can't. After doing much research we learned that this is the best place for her. The staff is extremely helpful and knows what they are doing. As well the facility is really nice. The room that my mom will be staying in is big and roomy. We are able to bring her items to make her feel comfortable. I am so glad that we are putting her into Morselife. This is the best decision that we are making. I know that she will be comfortable and so will my family.

My mother transferred to Morse from another facility that was sub par at best. The change in her is amazing. The Staff is so wonderful and she is actually happy again. Unfortunately she will need skilled nursing the rest of her life and am more than comfortable now that she is well taken care of in this facility. I cannot rave enough about it. Thank you Morse for truly being a 5 star facility and caring for your patients.

The facility may look clean but the care is severely lacking. My Father has the flu while he was there. The staff allowed him to become severely dehydrated and malnourished. We has to beg for them to send him to the hospital. When they finally did the dehydration was so severe he passed away. Be very cautious. Take pictures of your loved one daily, the food they eat, what they drink. Communication is almost nonexistent.

I was in MorseLife for rehab last year. It was better, the help was better, there was better training, and it was a much nicer facility. The room was very nice, not as new, but the food was good. I was there for physical therapy for three weeks. They had movies and religious services.

My mother was in rehab in MorseLife. It's extremely clean, the staff is efficient, and you can speak with the nurses or whoever you want to speak to. She had horrendous experience with another place before and MorseLife has been the best so far. There are also plenty of activities for the residents to do.

The facility have 1 nurse for the entire floor . Please think about it before you put your love one in these beautiful place .

My mother was at MorseLife. She fell the first couple of days and had a serious hematoma on her forehead, but aside from that, it was great. They were amazing, excellent, caring, kind, and nice. She was extremely comfortable. The facility was new, gorgeous, and clean. The food was good. We really liked the place. They had bingo and a beauty parlor, but mainly they sat around in the great room and watched the big-screen TV. The rooms were absolutely stunning. She was in the most beautiful and modern room that I have ever seen. It looked like a pretty hotel. She was housed at the Mack Pavilion, which is their short-term rehab.

MorseLife is beautiful. It has a grand entrance, and the dining area for assisted living is quaint and very nice. The rooms are on the smaller side, but they're nice, and they have a large Olympic-size heated swimming pool. They have activities, and it's a great facility.

Morselife was very expensive, and the clientele seems to be older. It’s a low class neighborhood; you wouldn’t mind to be walking at night and a little isolated. You have to drive a little to get to the main street, and it’s in the middle of nowhere. The grounds were nicely maintained. The staff was very accommodating and very interested in making a sale.

Morselife is a beautiful place, but the staff was horrible, non-existent, and didn’t care. The food was horrible. My friend had to gain weight, and I had to buy her food to feed her because they only offer Kosher food. Their physical therapy as well as their occupational therapy was excellent, but I would not recommend them.

December 28, 2015

I visited this facility

Based on three relatives experiences. One a two years ago, one last year and one Fall 2015. The Good: Clean rooms and facilities Caring aids and nurses Questionable: Not impressed with facility's doctor in all three instances. Recommend monitoring treatment and using your personal physicians. Mixed review: Some physical therapists are superb, some are just average who often leave patients on their own for extended periods especially on weekends.. The Bad: A drastic drop off in food quality this year. I understand about institutional food but the food in late 2015 has ranged from mostly unappetizing to uneatable. tere is a significant issue with the food that needs to be addressed. sample a few meals before choosing Morse to determine if the food has improved or not. My rating reflects this significant issue.

my mother has just been admitted to the long term care. we haven't been there long but so far i disagree with the reviews about communication. everyone has been super nice--all providing their contact info, responding quickly to my calls and emails. the residents on her floor seem happy and there's plenty of staff always availalble. it's a beautiful place. super clean and with a staff that goes out of their way to help. i dont know about the lukewarm reviews--my experience here has been amazing. definitely visit for yourself and see.

My Father has Parkinson and dementia. The facilties at Morse have been a blessing for him and our family's peace of mind. I visited 11 facilities and NONE came close to the quality of care, compassion, physical therapy, food service and ability to address medical needs that Morse provides. The staff cares, the aides care. They activities available are beyond the normal in providing a standard of quality And the ease of visitation and safety cannot be found elsewhere.

I have also been to the Morse Geriatric Center, and this center is wonderful. I think this facility is spectacular, their rehab is spectacular, it is spotlessly clean, and the care is amazing. It is very beautiful, they treat the people wonderfully, and the rehab is fabulous, but the food is awful.

My mother was a patient in the Morselife rehab center after hip surgery. The staff was amazing and the facility was top notch. The rehab gym has this really cool machine that allows you to start moving without bearing any weight. The nurses were very attentive to my mom and everything was so clean. The food was also excellent and my mom is super picky. There was excellent communication with the family about mom's progress. I would highly recommend this place.

This facility looks beautiful. I will tell you do not judge a book by its cover. My mother spent 7 weeks there and was sent to the hospital twice while there. The first was for a severe nose bleed. She has been in the hospital again for over a week now with a severe UTI from CATH left in and not cared for. She has bed sores and has still not been rehabbed enough to go home. I will be looking into things a lot more closely this time when finding a new rehab facility. There is one Dr that barely did anything and would never return my calls. She had to pay a lot of money to be transported to her own cardiologist and ortho Dr as well as the oncologist for her nose. It was ridiculous. Please do not allow the beauty to blind you with what care your loved one will receive.

I went and visited Morselife. I had not called in advance for an appointment, although I had been in touch with them. I found it very hard to communicate with them. They didn't have a good telephone system or receptionist. I had left many messages, and it took weeks before somebody called me back. I thought they had to do a better job about communicating with people and having someone available to talk to on the phone. It was disappointing, and I wouldn't want my dad there, but if he really wanted to go, it would be up to him. When I was in the area, I came by, and they had no apartment to show us. Though they showed us around and the facility was nice enough, they did not show us any apartment of any kind. They had activities, and the grounds were fine.

My father went to Morselife to recuperate. The rehabilitation center was the best. He had been in other rehab centers before, and this is by far the best he has gone to. The nursing staff was very good. However, when he went to the nursing home after his rehab, it was awful. It was sparkling clean but the rooms there were disgusting and the furniture was at least 30 years old. They were understaffed, so they were not patient with the residents. He had a roommate who can’t walk and the staff had a hoist and dropped him.

Beautif facility was wonderful people working there. Short term rehab very understaffed. Staff is kind and nice , but overworked, especially the nurses. No communication with family members. Patient care coordinator basically useless- in 6 weeks my mom was there no one returned calls . Dr. Dhana is hospital admin for all Morris Life facilities as well as only doc. On call. Patients have difficulty seeing him.

MorseLife got the best rating in the world. It's one of the top places probably in the whole area. The nursing home has over 280 beds. I really didn't get a good tour and I was very unhappy with the person that took me around, it was too quick and I didn't really get to see much.

I think that this may have been one of the better facilities for elder adults that my mother has been too. Although there are many places located in this area of Florida, we decided to use Morse. I took a tour of the facilities, which were rather large and accommodating, and felt that my mother was right at home here. The food was good compared to the other places that she has been to, with the lunch being the best meal there. Aside from the tour that I took before choosing this facility for my mother go to, I found it was extremely easy for me and my family to go and visit her almost any time of the day or year. I really would recommend this facility because my mother and I enjoyed it greatly and we would definitely use it again. I believe anyone looking for a facility like this should look no further.
