I am/was a resident of this facility
First and foremost I will preface this by saying on the outside as well as inside Lecom facility itself is beautiful. The private rooms are wide and spacious, it's well decorated, and exceptionally clean! However beauty is only skin deep... What you see is a facade. Lecom a facility that owns numerous colleges in Pennsylvania New York as well as Florida and also owns their own radio station bowling Alley theater and multiple other endeavors seems to fall short when it comes to actual care. Making money off the patient base seems to be their main focus. Providing actual quality Care not so much in their game plan. Staffing only two aids on first shift and one aid on second shift with units that has up to 18 patients. this is the equivalent of 9 patients per aide on first shift and all 18 patients per on night shift. Keep in mind these AIDE S are running the entire show for 12 hour shifts, having to toilet, shower, feed, provide restorative care, dress, intend to just basic needs of each and every patient, all 18 patients of varying capacity most of us completely disabled, a lot with Alzheimer's and dementia. do you think the care would be exceptional with this kind of staffing? Nearly impossible. Try taking care of your loved one with just two people. This is why most of us leave our loved ones and facilities such as Lecom with hopes that they will be provided with better care, care that we could not provide at home, but now take the same amount of staffing that we could do at home to people and apply it to a ward full of 18 people and as you see their needs being met as well as their quality of care will be greatly deteriorated. Also each ward has one LPN per shift without any RN's on the floor which means if anything should incur in which a nurse would be needed you will see a staff member leaving the floor in search of an RN which usually there is only two to three on first shift and two on second shift. The search to find an RN to remedy the situation at hand could take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Now imagine you are on hospice and you are in pain imagine your pulse is up 2 161 beats per minute your heart about to explode finding an RN that can provide the medication essential to lowering these beats and mitigating the stress put on your heart that's an hour at best that's an hour we are hardest struggling while they attempt to hunt down and r n 1 of 3 or 1 of 2 that are delegated to be split among the 8 wards. This is unsafe staffing. If you are sending your family member to die here they will not be dying with dignity they will be dying and agonizing pain. If you are coming here to be rehabilitated expect to be left in pain waiting ringing your call though hoping that one of the two aides gets around to you before you wet yourself. if you are here with Alzheimer's and dementia just be happy that you won't remember the experience as chances are these overworked AIDS and LPNs will not remember you especially in the scope of having to take care of 18. These are not superhumans is a regular human beings attempting to provide care. this care cannot be meant when the administration keep staffing at such a bare minimum. They staff below what is needed. They staff just enough to meet the requirements so that they are not written up by the state. This is not quality Care. This is funneling money, running a racket based on human lives. Yet they own radio stations, a bowling alley, a theater all while putting on a dog and pony show so that they can steal your loved ones money and reinvested in their facility. Don't be fooled by the cleanliness. Some things are illusions. Beauty is only skin deep and the cleanliness of a facility means nothing when the staffing is as poor as Lecom. Think twice and do your research before you invest your life or your loved one's life or put their care in the hands of this place. And if you do have family here stop by and pay attention. Take a look at what's going on. And ask yourself could you and another person do this and provide the type of care that is needed for all 18 patients? Does this workload look correct? And then look at the finances Lecom has in their backing. and take a look at where they are applying their finances and what they are funding. Because they're not funding patient care.

I visited this facility
LECOM Senior Living Center was beautiful and new. It had a cafe, and snack stations on each floor. It was high rise and very modern, and the rooms were all private. It was definitely beautiful, modern, and new, but to me, it looked sterile and blank. It didn't have a homey feel. They had common areas that had coffee and tea, but I didn't see any residents up and about. The staff seemed a little disorganized. We had an appointment, but nobody seemed to know that we were coming. I didn't find the staff very helpful. The guy who gave us the tour seemed to be more interested in talking about his different jobs in life and really wasn't able to answer a lot of questions for us.

I pick Millcreek Manor for my mom and dad because it is a learning institution and part of the LECOM (Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine) Health Service System. They have several student nurses and interns that visit the facility as well as the doctors. It is attached right to the hospital. So if they have to move into a hospital, it is not a matter of transporting them to another location; they just can actually wheel them on their bed, if necessary, right into the hospital's emergency room or anything of that nature. It is extremely clean. There is only 50 beds in the unit, and they will be moving to a new unit towards the end of June. They will have 120 beds in them. They will have local communities of 18 patients per family and take care of them as such. They are very caring, and they do a good job.

My dad, fred, was a resident for 18 months. He received excellent care in this modern, small facility where everyone on staff knew all the patients. The food was plentiful, nutrious and appealing. I was able to visit at any time and enjoyed getting to know other residents who interacted with my dad. Really enjoyed frank. Rember the day they made doughnuts. My dad, fred and frank were supposed to be putting powdered sugar on them at the end of the assembly line. However, they were eating them instead!

The staff is happy. I think it's very important for happy residents to have a happy staff. The residents are sensitive to moods and it can affect them thoroughly if there's a negative atmosphere. The same is true for a positive, happy atmosphere, which this facility has. The residents are happy as well and when they're not, the staff are quick to tease and joke them into a better mood. I have a friend at this facility whose grandson right him every week with a knock-knock joke. And every week, my friend goes around to his friends in the facility and the staff and shares the joke ad nauseam. The staff, however, never get tired of it, especially when my friend forgets and retells the joke two or three times. They listen and laugh and even add jokes of their own, which my friend is then eager to write down and send to his grandson. I think he's currently making a joke book for his grandson's birthday.
