my sister was in Dementia ward. staff were MEAN to her and down right HORRIBLE and I suspect physical with several (one time a nurse SCREAMED at a patient because he had soiled himself AGAIN then she slammed the door. A friend in McBride Building. Elevators reek!! food is GROSS!!!!!! Most of staff are wonderful but as in all occupations some should choose another profession. Unfortunately people with just Social Security are forced to stay here.

I must leave this review. My dear friend was admitted into spring Creek- she's been there for a matter of weeks, I've also been there before but this time was different, there was a light there and her name was Tiffany, as I've visited before on the South 1 building, there was a smiling face, a happiness that greeted me and others as we entered the unit. A pleasant hello and how are you were exchanged. It made me feel good as a visitor and that I had never gotten this type of treatment before, most of the time I was ignored or not even acknowledged. I asked if she was new or agency she stated that she was a new staff member employed by Spring Creek and that this was her first day,I asked her if she was working with my friend she kindly pulled out a paper and searched for the name and kindly said no, I'm sorry but ill be very happy to help you with her, I was astonished. Most of the time I get a reply of "thats not my patient, or I don't know" but never "I'll be happy to help you" that was so kind and generous, as we walked down the hall she just smiled and made light conversation, was a very pleasant young lady, enthusiastic to help .she helped me with my friend and was on her way, she offered to help again if needed, said her goodbyes and stated that she hopes we have a wonderful day. I was so a happy to have met her I told Tiffany welcome! and that this type of personality and attitude were much needed at this place. Tiffany jumped to the chance to help, with no hesitation. Thats the type of care givers I like to see taking care of my friends and family. If my friend wasn't on her hallway and she treated us with so much respect, I can imagine how wonderful she's treated her patients.

My sister-in-law was a resident at the facility, after suffering a stroke, for physical therapy. As a family member, I wasn't sure what to expect after she arrived. The social worker offered to help with things like her insurance. Of course we took her up on her offer since it was her job. I was greatly disappointed, as she was absolutely no help at all. We could have accomplished more on our own and much faster. My sister in law was discharged, still with no insurance, after being there for 3 months. She did however, have a great therapist.

My wife is in Spring Creek Rehab. It's an old, not attractive environment, but the people, the nurses, and staff are excellent and pretty much compensate for the lack of beauty of the facility. The food is not great, but my wife does not have a problem with it. The environment could be better. They have some music programs, and physical therapy

My mom was on the Memory Care Floor. The staff on this floor is AMAZING! Not only did they take care of my mom, they cared about her. They would pick out outfits for her and hang them on hangars daily for her so it was easy for her to get dressed. They would comb her hair and encourage her to take part in activities. While visiting her, I would see the care that they provided to the other residents. I felt secure knowing that she was not only being cared for, but they loved her as well.

A close friend is currently in the LTC facility. Everytime I go to see her her hair is not combed and she smells of BM. My most recent visit was the worst since she had stool caked in all of her fingernails of her right hand. This is called "digging" and the staff is to keep these residents clean.

IF YOU HAVE OTHER FACILITY OPTIONS, WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU CONSIDER THOSE!! My father was resident for several months after a fall last May. While there were some who gave him good care, he did not receive proper physical therapy and developed bed sores that eventually led to multiple additional surgeries. Eventually he had to be hospitalized to treat infection from the sores and was moved out of this facility for his own good. Sadly, he died Dec 27. Our family is left to wonder 'what if' he had received the proper care he needed somewhere else. If this facility is your only option for care, someone MUST be an advocate for the patient...DO NOT DEPEND ON ANYONE AT SPRINGCREEK TO DO IT!!

I visited this facility

Spring Creek would have been the most affordable. I thought they were doing a good job and everything was fine. However, I felt like their patients in their dementia unit were not high functioning patients. It had a more of a nursing home atmosphere as opposed to a home like atmosphere. The director and I agreed that my mother was not in a position where that would be the most beneficial place for her. We felt like she was too high functioning for that place. If they needed what they provide, they qualified and they don’t have the income, I would absolutely recommend Spring Creek.

i want to inform people that we had a family member at spring creek the food is horrible. back in sept 2012, there were roaches all over the food cart. .there were so many that staff was killing them as they were crawling on the floor and walls. this was not the first time. we complained multiple times regarding food and nothing changed. our family member lost weight and we took her out of facility, she gained weight. we feels she was getting worse and worse there. also mice are bad there too. its sad for the residents who cant leave there .dont take your family there.

I visited this facility

We visited the facility in early 2012, seeking a home for my grandfather. We took a tour of the facility and we were impressed. The only issue we had was with a resident who told us they treated them poorly, but she also said the sky was falling so we took it with a grain of salt. The staff were very caring, loving and answered all of our questions very quickly. While we ended up not using the facility due to my grandfather passing away, we would have placed him there as soon as the paperwork came back.

If you have another choice, do not send anyone to Spring Creek. If you have no other choice, then check on person regularly, clean their room and bedding, speak up and keep nagging staff if something is wrong. Not a clean place and staff seemed indifferent"¦..

My husband spent 6 months there, their physical rehab, did great things with him. Lots of progress made. The social service end of it was not as good, they did not listen to my voice. He had gastric bypass 3 months prior, they tried to put him back on the beginning diet. I had to have at least 4 meetings to finally get them where he needed to be. I told them, he was not right, please have a doctor to come look at him, they fail to do that, and later found when he was back in the hospital, he was over medicated (as he was losing weight, they did not adjust meds). If you have a family member there, you need to be visiting often, staff is overworked.

Spring Creek is a large rehab and skilled nursing center in Harrisburg PA. It was formerly the Dauphin County Nursing Home. It is clean, and modern in design. the staff is friendly but like many so places they are overworked. Personal items went missing, and at one point my mentally-competent relative was scheduled to be move to the Dementia Ward for no reason and I had to fight the management until they realized the mistake. Still, I found Spring Creek to be better than average in terms of how patients and families are treated. If a family member needs rehab or nursing care would recommend that you visit Spring Creek and consider it.
