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.
