The only thing was location to family. Overall it would not be a place I would allow my mother to go. The PT was good. Doctors not reliable for elderly care. My mom was not ready for a nursing home but was put in a wheel chair after passing her PT commitment. I was told she could not go back to assisted living. I challenged the doctor and had a second opinion. She is now back at the assisted living and doing fine.

My 89 year old mother was admitted to CCC in November of 2011 for rehab after a one week hospital stay. She was weak and malnourished when admitted. A care conference to identify treatment goals never took place. She became sicker and was too weak to eat but a dietary consult never took place. The CCC social worker told my niece that mother was overweight so losing weight wasn't a totally bad thing for her. Mother was diagnosed with dementia by the attending MD when in fact she is quite deaf and staff didn't take the time to communicate with her. In addition, mother was suffering from an untreated urinary tract infection that caused delirium.
After 25 days my niece requested that an ambulance be called to take mother to the ER. The CCC nurse reluctantly called, but told my niece that she should understand that sometimes the elderly don't recover and to be prepared for that. Mother was admitted to the hospital with an untreated urinary tract infection, malnutrition, and dehydration.
Since receiving proper medical care, mother is recovering well.. She is walking, mentally alert and oriented and is avidly reading novels and newspapers once again.
My mother's experience at CCC was quite traumatic for her and for our family.
