01/06/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: I placed my mother in the Lutheran Home and that was probably the worst decision I ever made. Within 6 weeks, she had fell and broke her hip, fell and cracked her head open requiring stitches, was hurried into bed and split her leg open requiring 18 stitches. I had gone in one morning and changed her and came back later to find het laying in vomit wearing the same outfit with no sheets on the bed. They tried to tell me they had changed her- wrong! I pulled her out of there immediately and found a home for her that actually cared. If you place your loved one here, be ready to be there most of the time. Good luck!

    12/30/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: My mother is at this nursing home and it offers very poor care. I am looking for an alternative. The food is acceptable, but not good. The activities are very, very poor. There is very little creativity or dedication in the activities department. The activities people appear to be undirected and unsupervised. They seem to feel the patients are incapable of doing much, so they don't bother to offer much.
    I was told by several friends that this home has a very poor reputation, but I thought because I would try it because of it's convenient location. However, my mother is being neglected and I see the poor reputation is deserved. I am looking to move my mother.

    08/09/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: A few staff members are helpful and kind but the rest just don't seem to care. The cleanliness of the dining room and patient rooms have a lot of room for improvement. They also seem to constantly be short staffed.

    02/24/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I am extremely dissatisfied with this nursing home. I do not recommend it to anyone. Incidents are not recordered. They are not always truthful. Rooms are not clean and really small. The activities posted don't always happen.

    06/19/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Our loved one was placed in this facility about two years ago, when alzheimers took over. We were able to pay privately for services in their alzheimers/dementia unit for the majority of these months. Once all private funds were exhaused, we had to apply for and allow medicaid to fund the monthly expenses. Almost instantaneously, the level of care provided to our loved one changed! We had investigated numerous facilities before placing our loved one in this home. Our choice was based on the fact that this was a continuous care facility and our loved one could spend the rest of life comfortably here. What a mistake! They cannot handle alzheimers patients, especially if they are NOT in a wheelchair and they are still able to talk! They can control those in wheelchairs by moving them around, but if your loved one can walk and talk, they are considered a behavioral problem. Our loved one was sent out to the psychiatric ward of a hospital many times; they could NEVER get the correct combination of psychiatric drugs to work, possibly because the psychiatrist only visited our loved one ONCE during the entire two years. A nurse practitioner was the only one to visit and "recommend" drugs! The sad part is that they are sent to the hospital, but by the time they are sent out, they are calm and collected and have no idea why they are being sent in an ambulance somewhere! It has already been proven that hospital stays shorten the life of alzheimers patients, adding to their delusional state, but because the Lutheram home staff could not handle occasional behavioral matters, they send the patients out to the hospital so they don't have to deal with them! Our loved one died awhile ago, after being sent to the hospital once again by this facility. Please do NOT place your loved one in this facility if they have alzheimers and you want them to have any quality of life. Find one that specializes in this awful disease and can handle each and every phase on site.

    Response: My heart reaches out, I have this situation occuring now with my mom. Very abusive treatment in these so called nursing homes. Almost near death collision just took place from the neglect and the overmedication for this misunderstood disease. The way you describe it is very accurate. Thank you for your post.

    Response: I also sympathize with you. Everything you have posted is accurate. They do not know how to deal with patients with cognitive issues

    Response: I am so sorry to hear about your experience. I had an uncle there two years ago, and they seemed to do all right by him. However, a friend of mine took her mother there by my recommendation and it was a totally different experience. There is no genuine care there; they're only interested in taking your money. The management staff is not truthful. They had a meeting with them, and one had to rely on the other to give what appeared to be "rehearsed" answers. Unfortunately, she passed away and the management felt obligated to send their condolences. Don't send your family members there - they will not receive the care they need.

    06/21/2011 An OurParents User Writes: “We are very honored to receive a deficiency free survey for 2011 in our skilled nursing facility. We are so proud of our staff for their hard work and dedication to keeping our facilities in exceptional condition. This is the type of care we aim to give to our residents and I am happy to say we are living up to these standards. Our staff was excited to see their hard work pay off and are dedicated to continuing to work hard and once again receive a deficiency free survey in the upcoming year.”

    06/21/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My mom is very happy here. The staff are attentive and caring, the building is well maintained and the activity throughout the day and early evening is enjoyable. I spend many days with mom and I have never been disapointed with her care.

    06/01/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: The Lutheran Home at Moorestown is a low quality nursing home. Some staff members are helpful, but many of them clearly hate their job and many of the residents. Difficult residents are ignored or mocked. They call my father by his last name to his face, while I am standing there as if we are invisible. They are always understaffed so they can't take people to the bathroom when they want to go, they just ignore him. They skip his shower over 50% of the time because there "aren't enough people". If he misses his shower, he doesn't get it the next day, he has to wait another entire week, and they might be short staffed that day too..

    03/17/2011 An Current/Past Resident Writes: I am getting great care here. They even have computer access for us and I can email and read papers online. It is a great place to live and they really care about the residents.

    03/11/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I am greatful for the staff at Lutheran Care at Moorestown. The opportunity to place a loved one in the care of others is a hard decision. I was filled with fear and guilt over the choice. I am pleased to say that once I made up my mind to try Lutheran's facility, I was quickly relieved of any doubt. The staff provided great service to me and my family. They were kind, caring, attentive and compassionate. The services are wide ranging and affordable. I can sleep at night knowing that my loved one is in such good hands. I know if anyone has to make this difficult decision, they too can be assured this facility will not dissappoint.

    02/25/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: A recent situation has prompted me to write this review. A family friend contacted me to try to find a place for her Mom . Alzeheimers has progressed and Mom was now a bit combative / LH assures us that the professional staff in the dementia unit could handle this.
    My visits disclosed a staff that really was not managed. Recreation people sat and read by themselves while residents stared at the news. Residents wore dirty clothes and were left in a room alone if they were noisy or insistant that they needed care.
    Occasionaly they showed that they knew how to run the unit with games and movies it was almost as if they knew when they were being observed by the state or future residents. Then back to the boring uncaring attitude.
    We did not frequent bruises on Mom and she was left in bed all day , we overheard a nurse say let sleeping dogs lie.
    The story goes on to very unhappy ending that I will not put in print, please , when you are looking for a dementia unit look past the butterfly gardens and the ice cream buffet. Even the religious affiliation was no help. Administration was not aware of how the staff worked on a daily basis. Family was left feeling guilty about choosing the wrong place don't make the same mistake.

    Response: My experience at the Lutheran home is similar to everything you have describe. There are few activities, mostly watching TV. The activities people sometimes come in, put in a movie, and leave. Some resident who can't care for themselves have dirty hair and fingernails but staff does not seem to notice

    02/04/2011 An Interested Visitor Writes: As a frequent visitor of the Lutheran Home to visit a friend who has been a resident there for some time, I have to comment on the inpact it has had on her life. Before her condition worsend and her family was forced to place her in a home, she really had no quality of life. All of her friends have our own medical problems and families to care for, so we have not been able to spend as much time together. I still drive, but since she couldn't, she was always looking for help to get around and often would be unable to go out and do things or even get groceries. She was so lonely with her family so far away. When I heard she had fallen again and would need to go to a nursing facility I was saddened that she would lose her independence. I am so pleased to say that moving into the Lutheran Home has actually improved her life in so many ways. Now she gets her meals prepared, someone does her laundry, nurses make sure she gets all her medications and she has companionship of so many wonderful residents. Also, they have added a lovely movie room and resturant so we can enjoy a snack together or a film like we used to. It is such a relief to know places like this exist and I can't say enough good things about the staff and the care she receives. It's a blessing and I would recommend the home to anyone who needs it.

    02/03/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My 81 year old mother was admitted to the Lutheran Home,on a stretcher,in the fetal position,from a hospital. She could not walk due to a pelvic fracture, and was in alot of pain. She walked out of the facility 6 weeks later to come live at home with our family. Thanks to the caring and competent nursing and therapy staff, I got my mother back!!!! I cannot say enough about the great care my mother received in the Lutheran Home.

    02/03/2011 An Current/Past Resident Writes: As a past resident in Lutheran Care at Moorestown I was treated with nothing but kindness and compassion. While I was nervous and in pain after my operation, the staff made me feel extremely comfortable and at peace. The therapy department was professional and diligent in restoring me back to a normal life style, while also teaching me certain ways to increasingly improve my progess at a faster rate. The facility is to be commended for the excellent care it gives and it was quite obvious from all the conversations I had with other residents that they too enjoyed their care and compassion at Lutheran Care at Moorestown also.
