Nursing Home Reviews for Sapphire Center for Rehabilitation & Nursing of Central Queens

I am a friend or relative of a resident

This facility is a nursing home and to Chinese/Asian people it would definitely be convenient (if you live nearby or don't drive) in terms of location. Because there was a Chinese manager but she kept changing the rooms and at first it was a little annoying but that's minor compared to the care we received. So, every time I was there my grandmother was always in a different room. My grandmother stayed at this facility while she had advanced stage cancer with later spread into the blood (leukemia). A nurse helped us push the bed-like wheelchair t to the larger sitting area because she didn't want my grandmother to stay lying in the bed all day. She wanted to help and it was a kind gesture. Another nurse taught the family how to give foot massages to my grandmother. We had to ask for permission to obtain certain things and there was always someone cleaning the facility. While my mom slept overnight the nurse gently woke her up in the middle of the night to help her change sleeping position to get more comfortable in the reclining chair. Again, she didn't have to but the nurse was kind and caring. Food was very restricted because of my grandmother condition, and the nutritionist/dietician told us what she could or could not eat and the dietician always sincerely asked for an update on how much my grandmother would intake. Everyone was always willing to help. The night before my grandmother passed...My mom was about to go home but the doctor warned us by saying oh, it seems like she might pass in a day or two, is anyone going to stay overnight? My mother was said that she will stay and as the doctor predicted my grandmother passed that following afternoon. They took her body downstairs into the waiting area for the person from the funeral home to arrive and on the trip down we passed by the kitchen. This place was definitely not the spotless clean but it was average clean. The kitchen smelled okay, like mushy foods in the making. I would recommend this place more for locals.

It was with great trepidation and anxiety when my father fell at home and had to be admitted to the hospital and then the nursing home for 3 weeks. My brother recommended a facility named Flushing House in New York. Although it was far from where my parents lived, a distance of 100 miles, it was the first choice my brother decided on. On its website,, Flushing House is described as an independent and assisted living facility rated highly in terms of senior retirement, staff, amenities, with computer access, excellent dining choices, and convenient accessibility. When we went to visit, the description did not disappoint. There is a rooftop garden where residents can enjoy the sun and roof views of Queens and nearby surroundings. There are one bedroom and studios available, with visiting nurses available when needed. Security is available 24/7. One difficulty is parking availability, but then again this is New York City. My parents decided that this is a good temporary bridging choice between assisted living and nursing home. They have stayed there for seven months now and the staff is very accommodating. They would rather live in their own home, but for safety's sake, this is the next best choice.
