  • The Oaks at Woodfield Grand Blanc, Michigan 48439

    My father was a patient at The Oaks for therapy. I cannot express how impressed I was with the care he received by the rehab team and the nursing staff. He was very sick and not able to tolerate much activity, but ultimately made it home. Compassionate care was shown from all of the staff - from the rehabilitation department to the nursing team to the dining staff to the housekeeping department. I would, without hesitation recommend The Oaks to anyone who is looking for qualified staff who enjoy working with the elderly and treat the patients and their families with compassion and respect.

  • Regency at Shelby Township Utica, Michigan 48317

    The Regency at Shelby Township is by far the worst run facility I have ever encountered. Incompetency and neglect are rampant. A friend of mine was in there and the care and service was the absolute worst. They draw you in with their location and new facility but once in the nightmare begins. Nursing staff is untrained and incompetent. Management blatantly ignores complaints and requests. This facility should be shut down. Local officials need to take note and do something.

  • Medilodge of Grand Blanc Grand Blanc, Michigan 48439

    This place is AMAZING! My Mother has been in and out of many nursing facilities and has a very complex medical history. this place is better than any that we have ever been to. the staff is very highly trained to take care of the Ventilator patients. more staff around that I have ever seen and are very quick to address any of our needs. this place is a must see. newly renovated and the staff is so nice. the food is also high quality. The Administrator was extremely helpful. came right in to introduce himself and was very knowledgeable in all areas, he is even a Nurse. could not recommend a better place.

  • Wellbridge of Romeo, LLC Romeo, Michigan 48065

    Very disappointing. The staff are very pleasant and generally helpful when they can be, except that they are understaffed. But basic instructions in the patient's chart are not followed. Communication is almost non-existent. The left hand does not seem to know what the right hand is doing, and neither hand tells the patient's family what's going on.

    Pros: it is a lovely facility and pleasant environment. The therapists seem very good. Nursing staff are pleasant. Food is good.

    Cons: patient care is not great. Communication is terrible, both between team members and to the family. They often seem severely understaffed (it should not take an hour to come help a patient with toileting!).

  • Regency at Shelby Township Utica, Michigan 48317

    Just like everyone said, this place is so understaffed and they kick your loved one out way before they are ready to leave. Don’t let the new building fool you. We were warned before placing our loved one here. But, unfortunately we didn’t have a choice because all of the nursing homes, close by, had no beds available. The kitchen can’t get their act together either. If your loved one is bed ridden, expect the food to be one to two hours late. They have some serious management/owner issues there. The only good thing about this place is the PT/OT staff. The social worker DOES NOT KNOW WHAT SHE IS DOING and is clueless on how to evaluate a patient. I have never in my life written a good or bad review. I was so disappointed with my love ones care. Seriously think about placing your loved one here if they are bed ridden.

  • Medilodge of Frankenmuth Frankenmuth, Michigan 48734

    If I could give negative stars I would. There are not enough staff to care for the residents. My Aunts call button would be on for over a half an hour to use the bathroom with no help until family went and got someone. Her medicine was always wrong and they never ordered her meds from pharmacy. There was also an incident when family should have been called and they didn't call anyone until a family member showed up and then we were told. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

  • Wellbridge of Rochester Hills Rochester, Michigan 48307

    When we first visited this facility, we were very impressed with the promises made and the look and feel of the building. Unfortunately, real life did not live up to the sales pitch. Upon check-in, the nurse would not even get a pillow, saying, "its not my job." That pretty well summed up our experience with the nurses. We did find one personable and conscientious nurse, but no others. The aides were good, in particular two of the young ladies.

    I will say that the PT and OT staff were outstanding. Very kind, thorough and patient. For that reason alone I will not give Wellbridge lower than 2 stars. The nursing staff, however, owes me a star!

    I cannot recommend Wellbridge at all. Be prepared to argue and do a lot of your own work if you dare to leave a loved one here.

  • Clarkston Specialty Healthcare Center Clarkston, Michigan 48346

    I am a former employee of this facility and I beg and urge you to NEVER put your loved ones in this hell hole! This place is literally a joke. Residents do not get taken care of. We were ALWAYS shorted staffed. I (a Nurse) would often get stuck taking two halls (so unsafe) which came out to be about 60 patients at one time! They don't care about you as an employee though, they will never thank you or have your back when something happens and you need the day off. The best thing I ever did was leave that place! Its nothing but drama. The CNAs will hookup in patients rooms when they are LOA, or at the hospital. The administrator sleeping with a nurse 20+ years younger than her. Just an all around bad bad bad place to work. Don't even get me started on their HR lady, Eva. She is a liar and will NEVER call you back. If she does, its literally months later and she is so fake when apologizing. All in all, IF YOU VALUE YOUR HARD EARNED NURSING LICENSE….DONT WORK AT THIS FACILITY. CLARKSTON SUCKS!

  • The Villa at Silverbell Estates Lake Orion, Michigan 48359

    I went unannounced to see a relative i had not seen in many years. I noticed that he was happy, appeared well cared for and looked better than he had in years. All of the reidents appeared clean.i could tell that this facility had many total care residents. Staff was polite to family members. Spoke to residents with respect.Staff also appeared clean and neat. I know no place is perfect. Working in medical field i have seen my fair share of facilities.This one seems to have staff that care about their residents .i was impressed and am glad my family member is there. Sincerely, S from FL.

  • Boulevard Health Center Rochester, Michigan 48309

    This facility is one of the two top rated care centers in the area. As far as I'm concerned it is the Gold Standard by which all care centers should be compared to. My wife is a current resident and is receiving excellent care. The staff is caring, friendly and responsive. Any concerns are quickly addressed. Kudos to Mrs. Debbie Foster for her excellent service. The place is clean and well run. Quite the opposite of many of the facilities we visited before we chose this one. If you or a loved one is in need of this type of care I don't think you will find a better place for them anywhere.

  • Regency at Shelby Township Utica, Michigan 48317

    Horrible in every way. They continually place their residents in unsanitary, and potentially dangerous situations. They are under staffed and ignore the residents especially those who cannot speak for themselves. Residents clothing disappears while in laundry, meals are not served or are brought at wrong times or are the wrong type of food from what is ordered. Residents are left all night to sleep in their own urine soaked bed. Nurse aids do not respond to residents pushing call buttons. When residents are checked in, there is absolutely no basic information describing steps to ordering food, what care is actually provided, how progress is tracked, frequency or number of days of physical therapy provided, and they do not contact relatives of residents who cannot speak for themselves before over medicate them especially those who complain about the horrible situation. Wish I was a lawyer so I could step in and get this place closed down…

  • The Lodge at Taylor Taylor, Michigan 48180

    They are way under staffed and try to get help they are all on there cell phones,and a parking spot the staff parks in handicap spots then we have the food if you can call it food.They have people working but they are just bodies but not to much help but I must say my father has a great nurse Kelly she has a kind and caring heart.I can say they do keep the place cleaner then some but they need more patent care help.Not happy about the place but close to home so I can visit often.

  • Westlake Health Campus Commerce Township, Michigan 48382

    My father was a patient at Westlake Health Campus for rehabilitation prior to having surgery for a aortic aneurysm. He was admitted on April 5 2017 and found deceased in the early morning hours on April 9 2017. His cause of death was listed as End Stage Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease yet the surgeon performing the surgery evaluated my father and gave him the green light to proceed. The responding officer failed to report a hematoma with a large bruise around it on his left temple consisted with a fall or hitting his head, therefor no Medical Examiner was called in to investigate his death. The attending nurse also failed to mention in her report about the injury on my fathers temple. I'm currently having this investigated and wanted to warn others to watch their loved ones closely in this facility!

  • Regency at Lansing West Lansing, Michigan 48917

    My mother spent 28 days at the Regency West of Lansing. For the most part the employees were good people. The facility is understaffed and not equipped very well to handle any patient that needs two people to move them to the bathroom or from a wheel chair to a bed. The aides should have some sort of communication device on their persons in order to communicate with each other instead of running around the complex looking for another person to help them to take care of a patient. The longest my mother had to wait to use the bathroom was 1 hour and 45 minutes after turning her light on. The staff had a habit of turning off the room call light before attending to my mother. At times it appeared they just forgot about her or didn't want to help her. I would turn the light back on and told her to do the same when no one was there with her. The physical therapy people were very nice and seemed to want to help. There were times that my mom couldn't go to therapy because she wasn't taken out of bed when the therapist showed up. Usually, the therapist would come back and get her later on. The machines that the nurses/aides used to take a patient's vital signs need to be calibrated or replaced. Very seldom would they work to take my mom's blood pressure and temperature. My mom now has home care and they have no problem getting her vital signs. The aides have too many patients and at times are in a hurry to move on to the next patient. My mother almost landed on the floor when two aides were moving her from her wheel chair to her bed because the head aide was in a hurry to go give another patient a shower. She ended up flopping barely on the bed on her back. Then I and the two aides had to lift and pull her up on the bed. The aides need to be trained on how to use the different slings/lifts. I watched them move my mother from the bathroom to her bed in a lift as my mother slowly slipped through the lift. Thank God they made it to the bed that time. If this is suppose to be one of the better rehabilitation centers than I feel sorry for anyone that is in one that is labeled worse. September 2017

  • Advantage Living Center - Warren Warren, Michigan 48093

    I am very dissatisfied with the warren facility. The staff do not come when you call for help in a reasonable time. The bathroom in the patient room need to be renovated. The patient get only one Styrofoam cup to drink out of , during there stay, which is not sanitize. All patients use the same shower room which you have to schedule twice a week only. You do not get a menu to choose from, you get what ever they cook for the day good or bad. I would not want anyone else to have to make the same mistake by taken your love one to a facility like this one.

  • Advantage Living Center - Wayne Wayne, Michigan 48184

    I love the layout of this building, the care is perfect, they always come to me. I don't have to ask for anything! Food is great and on time, I write notes to the kitchen telling them that their food is #1.. I came here in July because I got really sick. I lost 25 lbs. and my heart rate was really fast. I need to regain my strength and get my weight back up. I needed help and this building helped me more then I could have ever thought. This is the best place in the country! Period! This building is #1.

    This is the only place to come, you will get well here, you will get better! They people here really do care, I've made friends with everybody and I'm free as a bird here. If I want to go outside, I go outside and sit under the trees and take in the fresh air.

    I have nothing bad to say about this place, the people are so nice.

    The therapy department is really good. I can go their anytime I want and they are always helping me. The work me not to much and not to little, but just right. If you think this is a bad place then I don't know what's wrong with you. This place has helped me more than I could have ever imagined and more then any place could! Thank you to everybody at Wayne that helped me! God Bless you!

  • Fairview Nursing and Rehabilitation Community Centreville, Michigan 49032

    Unfortunately the corporate employees seem pleased that this facility has been downgraded from a 5 star to a 3 star facility. The Administrator and DON have no idea how to run a facility or engage with employees. At this point I would not recommend this facility for a loved one or as an employee.

  • Wellbridge of Rochester Hills Rochester, Michigan 48307

    This has got to be one of the worst rehabs I've ever seen. If I could give it zero stars I would. I guess the one star can go to physical therapy. The care here was awful. They are constantly short staffed. The nurses are over worked and miss things because they are trying to cover too many patients. House doctor would not return phone calls. Labs ordered by infection disease doctor and cardiologist ignored. Labs were mixed up and sent to the wrong doctors. We had to fight them for everything, even to do these necessary tests. We had to catch the fact that she was oxygen deprived and get her on oxygen. She was there a week after having a septic hip and it took them 60 hours to get her antibiotic started; that took MULTIPLE phone calls from us. Her cardiologist ordered some specific heart tests. He did not receive the results for 2 weeks. Wellbridge kept insisting they had been sent. When cardiologist did receive them they tried to call Wellbridge several times to have them send her immediately to ER. They did not answer the phone. The lab had also tried to contact them with the critical results and again they didn't answer. The next morning when the cardiologist got in touch with family, we rushed immediately to get her to ER and had to fight with them to get them to release her. They threatened her with going AMA and insurance not paying for things. The doctor tried to say they could handle this "in house" and finally got in touch with cardiologist who said she was absolutely to go to ER. We were told at ER that her potassium was critically low. There were a couple of nurses that did their very best to help our mom. The physical therapy department was very good. Unless you plan on staying with your loved one 24/7 and are prepared to fight for everything they need, I would avoid this place. What I have listed here are only the highlights. There were many many other issues.

  • Medilodge of Taylor Taylor, Michigan 48180

    Extremely poor service. This facility appeared to look good on the outside and in the lobby. I read many decent and good reviews prior to admitting my mother for short term rehab. We were shocked once we actually got into the patient area. It was obvious that the facility was understaffed and staffed with mostly poor performing employees. Many patients were left in wheelchairs sitting in the hall ways unattended, some were pushed closer to an employee area so they could be watched. As a new patient, my mother was not given any welcome information, no explanation of how to use the services available did not provide a wheelchair for use failed to provide medication when needed, did not respond to nurse call button….. I could go on. We attempted to discuss our concerns with staff but was greeted with rude behavior and poor responses. The facility manager did not even respond to listen to our concerns! The nurse admin was rude argumentative and did not respond to our needs. Something as simple as requesting additional pillows to aid a broken arm in bed was not fulfilled. Do not go hear and do not subject any loved one to this treatment!!!
