10/24/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: My 63 year old aunt, who is not an invalid, and is clear of mind, simply broke her leg and was sent to The Sweet Life for short term physical therapy. After 13 days in The Sweet Life she was rushed to the ER with massive infection in her wounds. The staff rarely came to her aid when she called them to use the bathroom and ended up urinating herself thus causing the wound to become infected. The staff was not trained well as far as the aids were concerned and many of them were unable to read English. My family and I were not made aware of the horror stories of this facility until after my aunt's incident. Apparently lack of care for patients is the norm here. Do not let your family member endure this hell hole!


04/04/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: my mom was there for 5 days without anyone changing her surgical dressing when it should have been checked and changed daily. My mom would bring herself to the bathroom when she was supposed to be up with assist. They put an alarm on her attached to her without consulting with the family. They waiting on numerous occasions to give respiratory treatments as needed until she nearly had passed out and had respiratory failure. Most of the staff spoke fast and with a heavy accent so had to be asked to repeat what they said every time they spoke. My mother had no idea what they were saying most of the time due to this and would just agree with them to get them out of the room. I would not recommend this place.

02/13/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Not a good experience....took my mom out in 24 hours! Staff non-responsive to needs of clients. DO NOT take your loved one here!


05/27/2009 An OurParents User Writes: From the filthy rooms to the extremely poor communications with residents family, this was the worst example of senior care I have experienced. Thank goodness it was only a short term rehabilitation and not a long term care situation. Not recommended.
