Assisted Living Reviews for Tanbark Health Care Center

I visited this facility

I checked out Signature HealthCARE at Tanbark Rehab & Wellness Center. They were too hands on, more like a nursing home than a senior community, and I don't need all that help. They come around your room every two hours and check on you, and if you want that much help then they're really good. It's a beautiful place and it's gorgeous, but it's a lot more money than my current community (like $1,500 a month more(. The staff was very helpful and very nice. They're gorgeous, but they're kind of too elegant for me. It's a fancy place with plush carpets.

My mom was sent there after open heart surgery and from the minute we arrived she was treated like a family member. She has received exceptional care both physically and mentally. She had a small relapse and went back to the hospital for 2 days and without question she returned to Tanbark to finish her therapy. Every single nurse, nutritionist, cleaning and maintenance employees, and support staff are highly knowledgeable and if they don't know something they seek out the answer immediately....not hours but immediately. I recommend Tanbark to anyone seeking rehabilitation in an atmosphere where they want to feel loved and helped.

***Be aware of several things: Upon admission, they do NOT tell you that upon the 21st day of rehab, you will be charged an additional $150.00 per day because Medicare co-payment is reduced beginning day 21. If they "feel like" notifying you, they might, but in my case they waited until 18 days later to tell me they had been charging this amount to my bill. When I called to talk with 1 of the corporate vice presidents, he said "they're supposed to", but they feel no responsibility or conscience to make sure it IS done. Be advised to check and DOUBLE-CHECK the medications they put your family member on and the Care Plan that is posted in the room. Question it and make sure they FOLLOW it! I had to make sure a private caregiver was there most of the time when I couldn't be there because for the first 10 days, no one knew what the other one was doing. I suggest you RECORD your admission interview and do not sign anything unless you read every single word, even though they'll say, "this basically says...". Lastly, the current administrator is sadly lacking in people skills. Ask any person and/or employee there. Now, for something positive...the rehab OTs and PTs do a great job and are truly committed to rehabbing your family member. For them, I give 5 STARS.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were able to answer all my questions and were very reassuring of their facilities accommodations. The administrator, Conjuna Collier, was very informative and even let me meet some of the staff that would be caring for my grandmother. The only negative thing I can say about this facility is cost but who doesn't complain about the cost of living in a facility such as this one!

Rude staff, my grandmother was neglected. The facilities cleanliness was sub par.

My wife was in Tanbark because she had Bell's palsy and was falling every day. Tanbark did everything they could, but they couldn’t be with her all of the time. They had very professional staff and a doctor that came in to see her once a month. The food was good. The room was nice and had two rooms: the bedroom and the living room. It had a walk-in closet, a nice bathroom, and a small kitchenette. It was a very nice place and served my wife’s purpose at that time.

My father was actually at Tanbark Health Care Center for rehab, and it was very nice. The facilities were wonderful, and the food was wonderful, but I don't think the care was nearly as good as the amenities. Some of the staff were wonderful. I'm 50-50 on that place; you were never greeted when you came in, and the people sitting at the door didn't even acknowledge you. The aides and some of the nurses were great, and some of the physical therapists were great, but I think overall there was a disconnection with the people that work there.

We visited Tanbark Health Care Center when we looked for a place for my mother-in-law. She would have a bedroom, small living room, microwave and sink. It was very nice but they did not have a secured dementia unit.

We just moved our grandmother into Tanbark on the corner of Tates Creek and Man O War in Lexington, Kentucky. She has advancing Alzheimer's but is still able to somewhat care for herself. Everyone has been very nice and the facilities are beautiful. This is a great option for our family because as she advances in her illness we can move her to a higher level of care within the same facility.

Tanbark really was a great place for my late great grandmother to stay. All of the staff was very helpful in attaining the information that my parents and myself were looking for. Also with my grandmother being an employee there for 40 years was another great selling point for us so we knew that she would get the care that she needed. All of the tenants there were very happy also, all their needs were met and it really seemed that they enjoyed being around all of the staff. I highly recommend Tanbark Healthcare to anyone searching for a topnotch facility for anyone in their family. All reviews on the internet came back positive and I have never once heard a complaint from them, especially during the time my great grandmother stayed there.
