They have the greatest group of people working there and it was a joy to spend time with my Father-in-Law while he was there. They have a very caring and skilled staff and they were so kind and caring to my Dad. If you are looking for a place where you want our family member to be cared for like family I recommend this place.

    My Dad has been in Palm Garden for approximately 2 month and I am very pleased. Most of the staff go out of their way to help. I spent a lot of time, including overnight stays, with my Dad for the first month or so. I wanted to make sure he adjusted and it gave me a chance to get to know the staff. The only complaint is the staffing level. It would be better for the patients and staff if they had more staff. The staff do a lot with what they have; however, it is impossible for them to take the time to really help the patients with the little things or to just spend a little time with them. This isn't a problem unique to Palm Garden. I have to say that it makes me sick to see how some people dump their parents off and have nothing to do with them. Those people should be put in jail for elderly abuse - unless they have a legitimate reason for doing so. How can someone not care more for the person that brought them in to the world and cared for them, all those years. I wish more people/organizations volunteered in these places to help those who have been abandoned. Is it a sign of the times, to see such a lack of concern? I would reommend Palm Garden and I'm glad I was fortunate to find the place.

    Palm Garden's staff is the best thing it has. They are professional, kind, and always courteous. They seem to have a caring for their patients unprecedented in any rehab facility that I have ever observed. Their facility has a warm feeling from the moment you are greeted at the door by the smiling receptionist.
    They have an Activites Director that goes above the call of duty to insure that all of the patients have an opportunity to participate in a wide variety of events and activities. She also make sure there are religious opportunities for whatever belief the patient may have.
    The Chef of the dining room makes sure there is a wide variety of delicious and appealing meals available, as well as the seasonal and holiday traditional cuisine respectively.
    The maintenance staff are undermanaged yet are always able to keep the facility looking the best and cleanest it possibly can appear.
    The facility does not have a bad odor in it!
    Overall, the facility is the best this clergy person has ever observed in the multiple facilities that I have been in. The administrative
    staff are excellent and go above board to take care of all issues that arise with patients, from legal to governmental problems with Medicaid/Medicare paper work. The head nurses and hall nurses are always knowledgeable of any issues with each patient and are always quick to take care of any problems that arise with the health of each patient. They know when to call a doctor and when to
    call an ambulance. They always take time to speak to any vistor and inform family of patient issues.

    Overall the rating is average. The Physical and Occupational Therapists are very good in working with the patients. However, we have concerns with the cleanliness of the rooms. The carpet is very dirty and worn out. When asked how long ago was the carpeting cleaned and vacuumed, we could not get an answer. While we were there for two weeks, we did not see it vacuumed once. The trash bins were full and were not empty. The nursing staff did not follow up with a health issue with our family member, causing further complication that required hospitalization. The CNAs were overwhelmed and understaffed, causing some of them to be unhelpful and rude towards the patients. In summary, we had issues with nursing care (lack of follow through and unpleasant behavior toward patients).
