When this place first opened (when cell phoned first came out) My mom was a patient and I'm not surprised to read the poor reviews in 2017. Mvy mom arrived at dinner time discharged from Baystate after major surgery. The ambulance attendants placed her on top of the bed as they were passing out dinner trays.(Her groin area was full of stitches)
The kitchen staff put her dinner tray down and gave it a shove and as a result a cup of water landed in her lap, she shrugged saying sorry and rushed away. My mom sat there for hours unable to get anyone's attention due to being short staffed on a weekend and as a result she developed a serious infection. That infection and the nursing staff making the decision to take her off of a heart medication abruptly as apposed to begin weaned off of it like she should have been is what killed my mom. Nearing the end of her life what she really needed was to be rushed to the hospital but I found the charge nurse waiting to call the ambulance for the change of shift for over all convince on her part. This is my first post ( EVER) and it's the first time I've ever shared my memory of my moms final days at Country Estates, I hope this post helps someone who is trying to make the right decision on where to get the right care for there love one.

    The staff here s typical, some are very good and for some it's just a job. The turnover rate for the staff seems quite high. I have to blame that on the management. The pay isn't up to par with other facilities and each shift is usually short of help. They aren't appreciated for the work they do. They aren't paid any extra for picking up on their days off or working double shifts. So why work here? Some days there may be three CNAs for up to sixty patients. This isn't fair to either them or the patients. Kindred is all about profits and I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.


    Response: I can't believe this place is even able to still get patients, they work at times with only 2 cna sometimes each floor morning,evening, knight. And if u adress the concerns the management turns Round on u and get rid of u for speaking on recidents right to have stable workers and full house in staffing.

    Response: knight?

    The staff do not care about communication with family. They do not care about best outcomes for patients in their rehabilitation center. The staff is rude and they want to push people home before it is safe they do nothing to prepare family members to care for their loved ones upon returning home. They continued giving my father medication even after it was supposed to be stopped thank god it wasn't a life threatening medication. My father fell there and it was like no one cared. They chastised him instead for not being safe. They communicate soley with a man who had a brain bleed and damage and tell us his family nothing. They will not allow us a secong opinion from a doctor other than a staff doctor and we were denied an MRI to further evaluate changes in my father's most recent CT scan. This place is awful the administrators are truly evil and do not care about the patients or families they are dealing with.


    Response: The staff aren't friendly or care for the patient, there's no hospitality and some racist workers . U would expect Agawam nursing home to be more professional since it's a Classy town. Even the management are disrespectful and speak to workers as they dogs or slaves who have no voice. If u say anything they set u up to get fired. I don't understand Y be in nursing but then they silence u for doing ur job correctly. There's a click of staff really think the state should investigate this place I feel bad for the patient and recidents.

    Avoid this Nursing Home. Country Estates is owned and operated by Kindred Healthcare. Kindred is a large money-making machine that cares very little about your loved one. There could be no staff on the floor at all at this nursing home, yet, Kindred won't let them call in help. Don't do this to your loved one. Even though using temporary staffing saves a nursing home money, Kindred won't use them. It's cheaper to have no one working at all - and that's what happens routinely. Avoid this nursing home.


    Response: Hope the state walks in on a day when there's only 1cna for 41 patients. Or morning and evening when there is only 2 cna each Floor. Wondering if this Y family members take they patients out without any notice. They under Pay n don't go by they're handbook so corupted. I know it's not the company it's the staffing n management that needs to be changed. Ull see a better nursing home
