Susan should not work with anyone. My mother in law is 87 years old most of her children but not all are out of town and we have all heard how condicending and uncompasionate she is. Another note the food is horrible. I have viewed pictures of the "chicken and rice" wich in all actuality turned out to be chopped chicken. She personally did not need chopped up food and thought she was going to recieve fried chicken. She had a doppler preformed and the "staff" left her sitting there in her underware for 4 hours, she was right across from the nursing station! Final note they "lost" quite a few of her clothing items. All in all we expect your facility and others like it to respect and care for our live ones. You should rethink how you care for your patients. It will end up being a law suite.

Your remarks have been shared with our team. We would welcome the opportunity to speak with you in greater detail regarding the type of food your mother-in-law received and why it was presented that way. We will also be happy to address your other concerns. Please feel free to reach out to our Administrator or Director of Nursing. Thank you.

Garden Gate Health Care Facility looks good. The staff provides everything she needs. They have all kinds of activities like Bingo, games, TV, newspapers, singing, and music coming in once a week. My mom's room is a little old-fashioned but it's adequate. The place looks professional. It's extremely high cost. You have to be at the Marriott Hotel to get your money's worth there.

My Mom was in this facility 12/5/2018 thru 12/28/2018. It was very dirty. My mom, who was bedridden for her stay was not cleaned often and many times her call light was ignored for long periods of time. I visited her daily and every day I would clean her room and found used gloves and towels on the floor or on her sink. Her garbage was often over flowing. I discussed this matter several times with the staff and although they agreed with me that it was unacceptable, nothing was ever done to change it.

On March 13, 2008 my fater's wife filled out a specific menu request for my father's meals. To date he has not received what was ordered. Thursday I talked with the charge person and she said it she entered it in the computer and he was getting what mom ordered. Last night my brother was there and still the food ordered was not delivered. He does refuse a lot of food but the family has taken control of that. We feel that even if he just picks at what is there it is better than nothing. We are supplying Insure for nutrition and he drinks that. Also could someone monitor his water intake. He is not drinking enough and his hand is swelling.

Provider Response

Thank you for your feedback. Your comments have been shared with our staff. We believe our diet technician unintentionally used a menu from one of our other facilities which features slightly a different meal selection. The situation has since been rectified; we appreciate your understanding. Thank you.

Rude nurses. Don’t answer patients who need help. The nurses are fast to respond with not allowing them to make any choices for themselves. I seen a women in her 90 ask to just lay down and rest and she was told no it is almost time for lunch and replied your here for rehab I guess it is ok to take there rights decisions choices away from them and tell them what they are to do. She only asked for a rest after being up half the day. They crowd the tv room with patients I guess this is a way not to allow them to turn lights on and ask for help. I truly am so hurt to see patients get treated like this. Sad

This is a terrible facility. The aides are rude and the nurses incompetent. The rooms are small, hallways cluttered, and it's either too hot or too cold. The aides don't want to do work. My mother was there and she would be changed once a shift unless I told an aide. Even then she had to wait a significant amount of time. They were constantly understaffed which is probably why she wasn't changed often and explains the aides attitudes. I heard from various staff, it was also a bad place to work for. The food is terrible. They claim to be a 5 star facility but, I don't see it. Overall 0/10 stars. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

I was at Garden Gate for rehabilitation after back surgery. The staff was great and the facility was clean and welcoming. I definitely recommend Garden Gate for therapy.

It's hard to believe this facility has received some good ratings. I guess that's just a sign of how bad many nursing homes are. My father was at Garden Gate a couple of years ago. His room was tiny, dark, and depressing and looked out onto the wall of another building. In December, someone kept opening the window in his room and leaving it open (possibly to smoke?). Of course, the staff denied it. We found his pills unswallowed in his mouth. He was brought to a freezing cold dining room dressed in just a light gown, and I would find him sitting in a wheelchair, two feet from the table, unable to even reach his food. The staff explained the cold dining room by saying that room was added on later and "it's always like this". The wound care he received appeared inadequate and the doctor too rushed. One of the nurses was fairly good. Hallways are cramped and cluttered and too many silly holiday decorations didn't help. I can only hope the administrators of this place have the opportunity to be patients/residents here someday.

My Mom is in Garden Gate for broken femur, she has to have the hoyer lift to get out of bed and to use bedpan, sometimes she sits for an hour waiting. Aides do not want to work, food is terrible, and it is not very clean, with tiny rooms. Would not advise anyone to be their family member here. It's bad when patients have their light on for help and 2 aides walk by and say they are not responding to any of the lights. I could go on and on, but I guess you get my drift. I can't wait till survey time.

I visited Garden Gate for my mother. I didn't care for the cleanliness of it. It seemed cluttered. It didn't seem like a home-living. It was more of an institutional living, and that turned me off right away. The staff did show me around. One thing different there than where my mom is now is that they had like little individual dining rooms with maybe 15 people in it. Overall, what they could improve on is to tidy up their hallways. That was the biggest turn-off for me. I was very unimpressed. Their main hallways seemed to be cluttered.

Thank you for your feedback.

My mother was placed there for rehab after a fall. She had been there before without any issues. This time it seemed that the staff was not very attentive. She ended up falling at night near her bed and bruised up her leg. Then the next day was taken to the the hospital when throwing up and incoherent. Turned out she had been overmedicated with her epilepsy pills and the doctor at the hospital told us she was "toxic" which was causing her blood pressure to sky rocket. Needless to say she will not be going back there!

Garden Gate Health Care Facility was the first place that would take my mom for rehab, and she's been there ever since. It is an older facility; a medium scale for cleanliness and the look of it. The service is satisfactory and activities are great. However, the rooms are too small. They can make it bigger and cleaner. The food is terrible too. They could have a better menu and food choices, like more fresh food. In addition, the air quality is not good; it's either too hot or too cold.
