07/23/2015 An Interested Visitor Writes: My father was at Winter Park Towers for his rehabilitation after his head injury. Reflecting on the experience, I can not remember anything even remotely negative or neglectful in/with his care. My mother was treated with dignity and respect too (regardless of how many questions she asked). The CNA's are probably the hardest workers in the facility, but their care and assistance and humor is what Dad remembers most. The nursing staff is thorough and knowledgeable. We actually never saw or spoke to/with a doctor the entire time there, so all medical information and whatnot was handled by the nurses. Personalities mesh or don't, even in the nursing profession, so some were more welcoming and compassionate than others. But no one was rude or curt, just professional not chatty. Physical therapy was a God-send, each and every one of them. The "patience of a saint" describes their interactions with my Dad. Speech therapy, Occupational therapy - personable, friendly, and jovial with the family yet determined and comforting to the patient. The social services ladies walked us through many processes unfamiliar to us before this experience. Medicare, Medicaid, VA benefits, supplies needed, transportation to outside doctors and even the denture replacement office. Family meetings were arranged for our questions and understanding. No question was dismissed or ignored. I, and our family, would recommend Winter Park Towers to others. Ours was a short stay (only 90 days) but Dad was able and ready to come home and continue his healing and rehab. Each case is individual. Dad's was as positive as the situation would allow.

    04/04/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My Dad required rehab and Winter Park Towers was recommended. It was a horrible experience - from incorrect medication dispensed to delay in medication dispensed. My Dad was told to push the button for assistance and was not allowed to get up without assistance - so continually soaked clothing and bed. Button would be pushed and no response for more than 18 minutes (and yes I was there timing it - I would end up taking him to the restroom). They told me that my Dad could continue after the 20 days (paid for by Medicare) for $140 and change per day. Right! Why would we pay for him to be soaked daily? When I brought him home, he was barely able to walk (using a cane) from the bedroom to the kitchen without legs shaking. I'm not completely sure what kind of physical therapy he received. And, I did talk to Administration - nothing changed. I told them they needed Quality Control - to make sure things were getting done correctly and they basically said that we were the only ones having this experience. I visited daily and sometimes twice a day...


    Response: I think it is the worst . My brother has bed sores that should be taken care of twice a day and some times they are not care for for days. They always have some excuse or say they will be back later and never show up. He has trouble with his eyes and has three different kinds of drop to be taken again they have trouble finding time to give them to him. His a/c has been out now for 4 days and his room is like a oven. His nurses light has been out for days now and he has to yell to get a nurse. There are so much more but I would take up the whole page. I would Never Send anyone there.
