04/04/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: The care at the center is incredible. All staff are caring, compassionate and patient. The FOOD, however, is abismal....reminiscent of army rations at times!!! Even a cheese sandwich was comprised of stale bread and 1 slice of cheese!!!


01/26/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Staff couldn't be more attentive! Kind, caring...even to those bedridden. Food very good. The facility is a bit run down, but renovations/upgrades are planned. Most residents very disabled.


06/08/2010 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Poor communication between nursing staff. Medication not given as scheduled. Patients not exercised. They make excuses for, rather than address the concerns of the responsible party for problems that arise with a patient. They are the experts and know more about your loved one than you do. Control diet with the priority put on ability of aide to feed patient rather than patients ability to eat or quality and enjoyment of food.


Response: This was my review and I wanted to elaborate.

My wife has Parkinsin's desease and dementia . She lost 10lbs. (6.5% of her body weight) within the first two weeks of admission. She was put on an subsequently taken off an anti depressant. Put on a pureed diet with no improvement. I told the nurses to adjust the timing of her medication so she could physically be able to eat and it worked. I prepare and feed her regular food several times a week, but the facility keeps her on pureed food which she will eat only reluctantly. She also developed an open sore on her buttocks within one month of admission. She was able to walk with assistance when admitted but is kept in bed 20-21 hrs. a day and now can barely walk. I helped her to the bathroom to urinate on 6/17/2010 and the two aides said they didn't even know she could walk and was on a diaper change schedule. When her freshly changed disper was removed there was partially dried feces between her buttocks. I am now searching for another facility for her after less than two months.

I would strongly recommend avoiding The Wanaque Center.
