The facility is wonderful and the nurses in my mom's section take excellent care of her. The down side is the food, it is really bad. We have to bring food in for my mom. Food that is suppose to be hot is cold and hard and she cannot eat it. Cleanliness, the outside areas are okay, but they rooms needs to be kept much cleaner. Someone should at least once a week do a good cleaning and sanitizing.

    We brought my mom to Lifecare after interviewing several other places after my mom had a stroke. We choose this place because we felt it was a good fit for my mom, specially since this would be the first time she will be living away from home and she is in her 80's. From the day she was there, they have treated her very good. They gave her the therapy she needed and helped her to adjust. She has been there now for about 4 months and she really likes it. The nursing staff has been great, helping her when she needs it and always making sure she is comfortable. It is not an easy job, yet they have really done well for her and she feels good about it and that is what matters. She has managed to get around in her wheelchair to attend some activities ( which are good) and meet other people. She likes the food and that she has a choice for each meal. The other staff members have always been very friendly and helpful as well. Based on our experience and not knowing anyone who works at this facility, it was the right choice and my mom is doing good.

    This facility might be fine for MINOR rehabilitative care. Nothing more than that or you are taking a risk. We lost our mother while she was in their care. I live out of state and my family selected this facility as most folks do because it was close to family, friends and home, it took her insurance and was close to her hospital. It is one of the few that (claim) to be qualified for the level of respiratory care that my mother needed at the time. After being in the hospital several months my mother was needing a few more months of physical and continued respiratory therapy to get stronger so she could go eventually home. There is a shortage of such care facilities and demand is high in the state. We found Life Care of Littleton was negligent in respiratory care and in other general care areas. The State of Colorado found them guilty as well. While in rehabilitative respiratory care in this facility and under the care of the nursing staff and the respiratory therapist our mother passed away. Our mother prior had been in the hospital, was stabilized and needed the rehabilitative respiratory and physical care. This facility promised that they could meet all her needs. She was accepted by Life Care and was medically assessed by their respiratory and admittance staff, and admitted to this facility. Then she was sent a few days later back to the hospital due to medical issues caused by medications provided by Life care staff. Unfortunately, this same kind of scenario happened two more times within a few weeks. The hospital got her stable and on the mend again and then she would be sent back to Life Care of Littleton. The last time Life Care assessed her, approved her and re-admitted her she died in their care a few weeks later. My other family members believed Life Care's promises and those of their respiratory therapist. Every time she was on the mend they claim they could meet her needs and PROMISED they had the level of knowledgeable staff or a better device that could care for her, they claim to "know her needs better", the pitch reminded me of a used car salesman. The reality is that the majority of the staff working with her did not have the proper medical respiratory training, and the facility respiratory therapist might have been the only one that was really qualified. They did not get the correct respiratory equipment to meet her actual needs, it was minimal at best. I documented that she was kept waiting more than 30 minutes for call light assistance. She used it when she needed respiratory help or for restroom assistance since she was still in a wheelchair. By state standards that is too long a wait for someone to respond to a call light especially for instances of respiratory distress. When I was there I would go look for help 90% of the time no one was at the desk where the call lights were ringing off the hook. I observed that they are extremely under staffed for the number of patients the place has and that is just not acceptable. When we asked for reasonable things to be done, corrected, they were often ignored. Following the last admittance the respiratory therapist had left to go on vacation and my mother was left in the care of regular nursing staff and the general PC, which the place had available only during the day. I was told this after my mother died by a staff member. Life Care did not have anyone on staff that was critical respiratory care level available during the therapists vacation. During my last visit my mother's health had severely declined (in less than two weeks) and I asked a nurse to get my mom back to the hospital that night. My plea was ignored and she died the very next morning. I do not recommend this place to anyone.

    My mother came for rehab after a hip replacement and we could not be happier with the team that cared for her and got her 100% better. These guys are great and I would recommend without hesitation.

    I worked as an RN greater than 8 years ago, and I still have nightmares about the place. I left nursing for several years after the trauma of working on the skilled unit. I resigned but i probably would have been fired. I am now a Director of Wellness, and before that, I was a Supervisor/Manager on skilled units. All I can say is that I attempt to turn all the negatives I saw into positives by being the exact opposite of what I saw going on there. For instance, Management really was the problem, tons of nurses with their clip boards who "no way Jose" would ever physically help a patient. No communication. No nurturing. No good will. No fostering of relationships. The nurses were so overworked that they would scheme to move the troublesome patients on the same hallway, and then scheme some more to change the assignments so that an unknowing nurse would have the most difficult assignments. I was that unknowing nurse for months and months until i wised up. Now i make a point to make sure there is fairness, communication and no bullying. Life Care is a huge Corporation and I fear will not change until there is a change in the corporate culture that values nurses. Until then, stay clear. . . . . .

    My father stayed here for his rehabilitation after heart surgery. For the six months that he was here the staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. The facility itself was always clean and welcoming.

    The Phys Therapy Dept is Fantastic ! One on one assistance will be GREAT for everyone, despite illness or disability.

    This facility kept my Grandmother almost against her will. She obtained 3 different infections while there and a pressure ulcer. Often the staff seemed put out by family just trying to ask questions about why these things were happening. They were rude and abrupt. I will NEVER recommend this facility to anyone I meet on the street. Littleton hospital highly recommended this place, SHAME ON YOU

    This nursing home is not located in a hospital or a continuing care retirement community (CCRC). As of November 2012, the medicare rating for Life Care Center Of Littleton, was 4 stars, which is a better rating than 81% of nursing homes in Colorado.

    To view the full report for this facility, and to understand more about its Medicare rating, go to here

    Response: The average RN to patient ratio is 14 to 1 and climbing because that's "what other facilities are doing" according to the DON, regional directors and ED. Employee morale is low. Nursing staff are burned out and actively looking elsewhere for a safer workplace environment. Most families cannot comprehend the stress level the nursing staff are enduring on a daily basis. The cases are more difficult and require more skilled care. How could a nurse and a CNA provide equal care and time to each of their 14 or more patients in an 8 hour shift? This is the question families should ask when touring facilities for their loved ones.

    Response: NEED MORE NURSES!!

    I recently had knee surgery and rehabed at Life Care of Littleton. Never in my life have I been treated with such disrespect! The nurses treated me like I was just a number and when I asked to talk to the director, I was told he didn't have time for me. I will never go there again.

    We were not impressed with the service we received here. My dad's call light went unanswered for 25 minutes! I have never been so grateful to get my dad out of this nightmare! WE WILL NEVER GO BACK!!


    Response: This is such a big lie.

    Response: I have documented many times average 30 minutes for a call light to be answered. Minimum 15 for our family member at Life Care of Littleton. Check with the State of Colorado the track record. Opinion: facility needs more staff for the amount of beds. This is a place where people need help getting in and out of bed. Using the rest room, leaving them in Depends tell they can get to them don't cut it in my book. Getting to the dining room, oxygen assistance, going to social and physical therapy. They need more qualified staff around the clock. That call light bell never stops. Period.

    Response: That is true about call light.... Nurses IGNORE it!!!! They just sit and talk....

    10/28/2011  -  An OurParents User Writes:

    This facility seems to care more about their number of patients verses providing good solid quality care. My father had long waits for help. Requests weren't met timely. It had such a great reputation so we were excited to go there, they failed to live up to what must have been an old reputation. People please visits these places before you put a family memeber in. Don't assume it is great based on what a hospital staff member may tell you. See it for yourself. We will never go there and have done our research since and have found much more caring facilities should we ever need one again.

    Response: NOT TRUE AT ALL
    LCCL is by far one of the best places my Grandmother has ever been because of the WONDERFUL NUrseing STAFF and the best REHAB in the state she went home walking and the reputaion this nursing home has is for all the right reasnon do whats best for your family and go the LIFE CARE CENTER OF LITTLETON

    The management team only cares about hiring their friends and firing honest employees that did nothing wrong. Employees are forced to forgo overtime even when they work it. The payroll person illegally alters timecards. It is amazing how anyone can get quality service when there are so many disgruntled employees....If you want good service, STAY AWAY FROM THIS FACILITY

    Response: I agree! The director of nursing has favorites, including her daughter who works under her and no one else can supervise their family members who work there. The payroll lady took hours off my timecard without my authorization and told me "she can do whatever she wants because she pays me". Last time I checked I worked for Lifecare, not this lady!

    Response: That is such a LOAD OF CRAP LCCL is one of the best LTC place to be a Resident or a staff member the Residents are always put First and the New DON is one of the Best Nurse so have as a boss how dare you you were let go for all the right reasons it sound

    Response: GROW UP!!!!!!
