  • Powerback Rehabilitation Lafayette Lafayette, Colorado 80026

    Recently my mother spent 17 days at Powerback rehab in Lafayette.

    We were initially concerned by the reviews however we found that the 17 days went by very well for our mother. The head of physical therapy stopped by on Sunday and introduced himself and took some time to get to know mom and what moms concerns were, PT and OT was planned and the plan worked. The average response time was 3-5 minutes for a response once the call button was pressed, very acceptable.

    . We found the staff to be very caring and professional. Nursing -Dr. PA, RN, CNA, LPN were available and ready to assist. Our mom required to be moved to another facility and the case worker was very helpful for moms transfer.

    The menu or food can be changed until 6:30 pm to accommodate your loved ones eating habits. The food service was friendly and helpful, you need to remember to ask for what you may like.

    The facility is new and very nice,our do It is very hard when a family member is involved, To give a honest review, was everything perfect-no but you ask questions and try to get it corrected.

    AVOID!!! ZERO CARE & WORST REHAB. Social club for employees, takes hours for staff to respond to help buttons. Rehab consists of checklists "teaching" how to use a grabber, microwave tea, go up stairs. Third back surgery, all this was known. Needed place to heal and get strong. Kicked out after a few days. They know how to submit paperwork to get paid and ensure their backsides are covered.

  • Manorcare Health Services - Boulder Boulder, Colorado 80301

    My dad was in ManorCare of Boulder for 28 days following his second hospilization within a 2 months time frame, and a diagnosis of CHF. The staff and therapists at ManorCare of Boulder were excellent in the care they provided. We felt like they were working with us towards our goal of having him be able to return home (unlike the staff at the previous rehab-PowerBack- he was in after the first hospilization, whose only goal seemed to be to "move him upstairs to the long-term facility". I love the weekly meetings ManorCare holds with patients and family members. It is nice being able to discuss care and options with the entire team at once, rather than trying to track people down to get questions answered. Emily was wonderful and very supportive in arranging palliative care after my dad returned home. We felt like the staff at ManorCare truly cared about my dad as a person, and about his recovery, rather than just the $$ he was bringing in. Even though ManorCare of Boulder is further away from us than a couple of other rehab facilities covered by my parents insurance plan, we will definitely choose ManorCare again if the need arises. They come highly recommended by us.

    My mother has been admitted to Powerback in Lafeyette twice. All I can say is they don't care about there patients at all. They care about their numbers and stats. She received on average less than 15 minutes of rehab per day. The rehab consisted of walking down the hall with her walker. She can't get out of bed without help, can't use the bathroom with out help, etc… But they say she has recovered and doesn't require any more rehab and can be discharged after 10 days. What a bunch of bull. This company cares about their numbers that's it. Some of the staff is friendly but most just complain about being overworked. On 2 occasions she didn't receive her dinner, the kitchen lost her order. What?.. Unexceptable. On every visit her water glass was completely empty. She would request her glass be filled and the AIDS comment was she will get to it when she has more time. If you want true rehab don't use Powerback go somewhere else.

    Horrible, if a zero star rating was available its what I'd give. They drugged and neglected my loved one. I would let the phone ring for 45minutes without being answered. No one cares about anything going on there including the administration. I would never recommend anyone to go there. The nurse lied to my face about things i had discovered were going on. My loved one wasn't bathed or put in clean clothes for a week.

    They can't handle patients who are a fall risk. You have to pay for a sitter and then they won't let the CNA you've hired provide any services.

    If you call to check on a patient it's very difficult to get anyone on answer the phone. The status given when finally getting a call back was "he's doing better" which was absolutely not the case. A nurse later in the night hung up on me. It's frightening to have a loved one stay at PowerBack. .

    My elderly mother spent 2 months at Boulder Manor/ Flatirons Rehab after fracturing her hip. The care provided in the Flatirons rehab varied from excellent to abysmal, and I believe the rating should reflect the worst. Some aids would hide to avoid providing help to patients, and it once took 45 minutes to answer the nurse call button (and only after 2 actual visits to the nurses' station). The staff could also be quite helpful and friendly at times, but the communication was almost non-existent. I was given 4 hours notice that they planned to move my mother, and this was halted only after my most vehement protests. When they did move her at a later date, they started an hour earlier than they told me, and when I arrived 30 minutes early I found my mother, who has advanced dementia, in the hall alone, confused and crying, being consoled by a volunteer. The communication among staff and patient's family is incredibly poor. My calls to staff (nurses, OT, business office) were rarely returned. "Care conferences" mostly consisted of telling me what care they planned to cancel, and how much they would charge me once my mother's medicare insurance ran out. I strongly urge readers to find other rehab facilities and nursing homes, even if it means a wait for a room to open.

    I liked everything about the place except the food. I canĀ“t believe a professional dietition was in charge of the kitchen. The vegies were always overcooked, the meat was often stringy and there wasn't very many appitizing meals. .

    Outside of that, it's a very nice place. I thought the nurses were very competent, the physical therapy people were well trained and lovely people. They went out of their way to work with you and get you back in shape and I though the hospital service was fine. Someone always came in less than 5 minutes when you put on your call light and the place is attractive.

    Not enough staff members! My mother was there and there was one nurse for over 20 patients and usually only one CNA. My mother was forced to sit in urine for close to an hour on numerous occassions because the staff members were overworked. The staff was very nice when available, but availability was an issue. We will not use this facility again!

    I believe that the management team does not support the staff and thus makes the staff not like their jobs, but we all have to work so they stay there. I had a family member there on North and she was taken well care of, however, the DON was the worst women to deal with ever, I do not even think that she is qualified to do the job position that she is in. She lacks in all education and management ways and should not be the DON at any facility. The manager on this unit was great, she was always available to answer questions and I saw her on the floor always helping her team out. She was nice and well respected when she was talked about by the other staff and other residents. I will never put my family members here again.

  • Life Care Center of Longmont Longmont, Colorado 80501

    This facility was absolutely wonderful. The staff are all very caring people, from the medical people working with my mom to the activity staff, therapy staff, and management. Although I think everyone prefers to be at their own home rather than in a rehab center, mom actually really liked it there. The therapists are top notch, and the nursing staff truly cared about her well being. Mom is back home now, but would definitely go back if the need ever arises.

  • Life Care Center of Longmont Longmont, Colorado 80501

    If I could give this facility 0 stars I would. After suffering a stroke, I placed my mother at Life Care Center of Longmont for rehabilitation. The level of neglect and lack of care demonstrated by the staff was astounding. Even after meeting with managment regarding the deficiencies, we saw no improvement. The staff continually focused on a broken wrist, suffered in a fall a couple weeks before the stroke. We had to remind each and every worker that the reason for her stay at Life Care was because of the stroke and therapy should be focused on speech and swallowing…. not the wrist. My mother died 6 days after arriving at Life Care Center (after waiting 9 hours for an IV). If you want your family member to thrive…DO NOT place them at this center. It's the worst decision I've ever made.
