12/20/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My father has been at Highland Care since August of this year. Initially, it was our hope that with the therapy program offered at Highland he could regain strength and enough independence to return to his assisted living community. Over a period of time we, the family, needed to make a decision on a longer term facility which Highland Care offered.
We narrowed the decision down to two facilities and met with the staff at Highland Care who outlined for us the continued therapy Dad would be receiving which was the main focus of his needs. Based on the commitments made in that meeting and our familiarity with the staff we decided to have Dad stay.
Since our decision to have him remain at Highland to continue with the therapy program outlined, he has been forgotten. Forgotten for multiple therapy sessions, forgotten for entertainment programs. It has become apparent that we were mislead regarding Highlands therapy program as outlined by the staff. In attempts to remedy the situation we have been told that they are doing their best...but it is not what was communicated.
The nursing staff and therapists are competent, caring and understanding but as an organization communication is extremely poor. Shift change information between the nursing staff is spotty regarding the daily needs of the residence. Administrative communication to the floor staff is at best ineffective.
Highland Care continues deteriorate in the level of service it once provided and appears to be satisfied with the current status.
