The facility is old, outdated, and provide 2 per room. The food is fair but the place stinks along with the staff. I should know because I was a patient. This place should be remodeled but that probably won't get rid of the smell. They should rebuild from scratch.

They assessed my father-in-law at the hospital, were fully apprised of his condition, and told us the facility was right for him. He was supposed to be there for 100 days, until we found a permanent place for him. We toured the place and, except for their rooms containing outdated furniture and being handed a bunch of mismatched broken clotheshangers for storing his clothes, all seemed well. By the end of the first week, before he had even had a chance to settle in, they started complaining that they couldn't do anything for him. They reported that he was violent and self destructive. The truth was, they refused to work with him. They promised they would help him regain his baseline, but all they did was babysit him at the nurse's station. Day after day, they sat him in a wheelchair out there and ignored him. He has dementia, but he can play chess, he can play his harmonica, he can talk, he can understand what is read to him. But they treated him like he was a vegetable. They did no rehab with him, so he grew weaker and weaker and never regained his ability to walk. They continuously pressured us to get him out, which, after seeing that they refused to care for him, we were eager to do, as well. Remember... They were the ones who told us he was right for the place! We still don't understand why they turned on him. They also treated my mother-in-law with disdain and evasion. Finally, my husband was forced to make an unplanned trip back to MI to sort out this mess. When he got there, he found his father emaciated, like a prison camp victim, looking miserable and hopeless. The social worker, who was the only competent person there, helped us find a decent, caring facility. Now that my father-in-law is in proper care in a different facility, he is talking, regaining his strength, smiling, playing chess and harmonica. He has had no violent or self destructive episodes. In short, Danto is an awful, awful place. If you love your relative, please do not leave him or her there!

I would not recommend this place. The lady at the front desk seems to be bothered and annoyed when she has to answer the phone or let you in. She moves as slow as possible. When I toured they made the place seem amazing. As soon as my dad arrived it was clear it was quite the opposite. They do not respond to the call button. They are not very goood or understanding about giving medicines and things like that. My dad needs assistance to go to the bathroom and had to wait for hours before anyone came in his room to see why he has pushed his call light. Overall it has been very disappointing.

my mother was at the Marvin & Betty Danto facility, December 2015 thru January 2016, approximately 2 months. she is now petrified of going to any rehab facility. The attending care including most of staff were very unprofessional and mean spirited, whereas, in most cases, it took them 15 minuted up to half hour to attend her need. Also, the food was horrible. However, with all fairness, the actual physical therapy was good. In any event, attending care is most essential for the elderly and disabled, Bar none!

My husband went to the Marvin & Betty Danto nursing home, which is different from an assisted living facility. He had suffered a hematoma, so he needed a nursing home. Some of the staff were OK, and some of them weren't. The physical therapy was good but I don't like what they did to him there because they kept him in a wheelchair most of the time and he was confined to his room, and they had one person watching four or five people.

I have been to a couple of rehab facilities and I have to say this is one of the best places I have been. The nursing staff was very friendly and helpful. They make you work but that is what I needed so I could get home. I would highly recommend this place for nursing care. The Administrator is a nurse too and she was very helpful.

Stayed there after knee reconstruction surgery for 10 days. Phy therapy very good, people very friendly except one incidence of rudeness. 5 incidences of incompetency in 10 days.. ( not knowing which Rx for what and did not know how to use knee CPM equipment.. standard equipment for last 30 years) . Came from a hospital, I am VERY DIZZY from medications, they brought a wheel chair, my husband stayed with me till i get safely transferred in a bed, by this time a front door person called a police who gave a ticket for $ 100. Was not blocking entrance..kept room for other vehicle, their explanation we page you saying whose car is here !! We did not expect anyone to page us..too busy with personnel to get transferred in a bed... Front door is the only entrance one can go in.. My husband wanted a safe transfer and know which room number so he can go, park car and bring my stuffs... WON'T RECOMMEND THIS FACILITY FOR NURSING CARE... BUT PHYSICAL THERAPY IS VERY GOOD...

We did not have a good experience with Marvin & Betty Danto. Mother was there for about a month and a half. It appeared clean, but the staff was not forthcoming, and the food was good but never came on time. She was in a two bed-bedroom facility, and it was very bland. They had one chair for the visitors and a curtain dividing the two beds. They had piano concerts in the dining room. They did not respond quickly to any crisis and would try cover up anything that we would complain about or have a problem with.

They dont give very good service. The patients have to wait 45 mins to an hour to be helped. Some of the nurses and aides are unfriendly

Clean and fresh smelling. My aunt was well cared for, staff members were kind and caring. Food was pretty good, and the therapy was awesome! You will see a difference if you visit other homes, Social workers took care of all the equipment we needed to get home, and the home care too. Let's face it nobody wants to have to go to a nursing/rehab center, but when you must, Danto is a quality place.

This facility much much far from being good, I even won't place a star for it. It is not because of old furniture (probably from 19 century), outdated equipment, it is because unattentive staff, it is impossible to get someones attention if patient wants to use a restroom, or get glass of water, etc. It is impossible to reach a social worker, a doctor. Social worker does not do what they supposed to do at the time of patient's discharge. There is no paperwork sent to Home care company in time (so far it was not sent at all). Dispite of kosher, a quality of food is very poor and unappetizing (food trays look old as the furniture), The good thing about this facility is Physical and occupational therapy only. That department works. I would not reccoment this Health Care Center, because there is no discent care.

I visited this facility

I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. I visited my grandmother several times during her stay and they always seemed very attentive. The facilities were clean, and our family took my grandmother outside several times to see clean, groomed areas for the inhabitants to get fresh air. They checked on her while still allowing us time to visit in privacy, and made sure visiting family members were comfortable. The entry areas were clean and the rooms (both for stay and for function) were well organized and neat. I spent some time in a community room playing with my own children when they got antsy, and a staff member took some time out to talk to them and myself, and make sure they were set. They knew who I was from my grandmother telling them we were coming, which I thought was personal and welcoming. I believe it was a great facility for my grandmother to spend time at. The staff was very helpful in her last moments, making sure all family members were notified to be there with her.
