12/07/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: My wife and visited the rehab side of Bellingham, the rehab looked nice, clean, most of the staff where friendly and smiled and greeted us. But in a far corner of one of the hallways, we could see maybe two staff members having a heated conversation. As we went though the building one of what we though was a staff member in that heated conversation was actually a daughter of a patient their at Bellingham, she express to us when she was very upset, that bellingham is a Medicare place only, or private pay. But when you run out of your 100 days the community will kick your Dad or Mom to the curb. We where in shock, we asked the Executive Director about this before we left and she said that the social services staff would help with placement. Before we left we spoke to the Admissions Director to ask about the 100 days of Medicare and then where do we go from there. My wife and I don't know if she was still in the fighting mood cause she was the second person involved in that heated discussion with that family member that left very angry. Needless to say Carolyn , the Admissions person said in a very loud voice, after the 100 days, if you don't have the money. We will send you packing. With that the Executive Director, said the tour is over and pulled the Admissions person away from us. Not a Great first impression. And I would leave my Father-in-law here for rehab, NO WAY. AVOID THIS REHAB, we finally have him at the Wellington, off route 352. That Admissions person Carolyn needs to fired. We actually called the state department and Medicare complaint hotline and reported her behavior.

    Response: My 92 yr old Father was at Parklane for rehab because his age would not admit him to Bryn mawr rehab. Understood. He previously was at Brookside at Bellingham. His rehab stay at Parklane was horrendous. The facility is understaffed , dirty and incompetent. The nurses have little to no contact with patients. They are tired and simply sit behind their desk. The aides as in any facility r hit and many misses . Stay away from Parklane at Bellingham.

    04/11/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: The nurse did not know what medicine she was giving to my mother -did not know what it was for. The wait for dinner once they wheel you down is an hour -there is virtually no communication for the family on the dr, assessments, OT/PT goals and if they are met.
    The resident was to only use a wheelchair or walker when getting out of bed -family found out she was not using either one and the nurse did not report it to OT/PT, head of nursing, etc -only "well, she didn't fall"
    Care was virtually nonexistent -none at night. Communication for the family was a disgrace- definitely would not recommend to anyone -poorly run

    11/16/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I didn't have a problem with the staff as a whole. The actual care givers and nurses were good but the admissions lady actually told my handicapped mother that her writing was not good enough when she went to sign her name. She was discharged from there about 28 days ago and all of my calls to the administrator Jeff have gone unanswered when she was in the facility and after.
