11/04/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: Don't be fooled by the remodeling. Yes, it is nice compared to other nursing homes. However staff to patient ratio is poor. Try visiting on a weekend where you will find no one in the hallways. Residents wait up to 45 minutes to get their call light answered. Information you are given before you enter your loved one changes once you are in. They say the residents come first, however, since the remodel, hallways have been painted dark and gloomy. An overpriced gift shop has been built where none of the residents daily needs can be met, unless you think they need $200 fine china or $100 jewelry at 70, 80, 90+ years old. The birds that they loved to watch have been taken out of the lobby, replaced with a fireplace that no one uses or if you want to use it has to have a staff member present. Laundry is constantly lost and daily needs of tooth brushing and other daily routines are not being met because the CNA's have too many residents to care for. Instead of worrying how the building looks, they should be looking into the quality of life these residents are getting. Residents should be getting more toileting time in the day. I feel sorry for those who visit once a week. You have no clue what goes on in a weeks time. Just because you have put a loved one into a facility doesn't mean you should stop worrying or paying attention to their needs. No one will watch over your loved one like you will!!!!


Response: I couldn't agree with you more. I believe they have many people fooled, including The STATE. There is nurse, Bridget on rehab that is justa downright mean and nasty, PIG!

08/23/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Best Rehab ever! Jackie the therapist, and Bridget the nurse=top notch!! Facility was clean. Staff was pleasant. I had multiple hospitalizations, this was the safest I ever felt. Any issue was immediately addressed. Except they lost my socks and underwear. 5 stars!!!


04/09/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I was thoroughly disappointed in the rehab unit of the Catholic home. I pressed the button for help and waited and waited and waited for someone to help me. Only saw 2 aides who were always talking/laughing and one grumpy looking nurse who seemed to pretend to not see or hear anything.


Response: The nurse must have been Bridget, she is AWFUL, but must be Bipolar or something, because there are RARE occasions that she acts half way human.

Response: They must have bought those 5 stars.

Response: Of course you can get 5 stars when you don't document the negative happenings at your facility.

11/18/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My family member had an awful experience at Milw. Cath Home Rehab unit that included: indifferent (at best)attitude of help, lack of staff (just 2 aides and 1 nurse) on duty for each 8 hour period to take care of all the elderly patients, floor not washed the entire length of stay( over 3 weeks), and overall just a total lack of any care for patients. No bath given in over a week, rough handling, inedible food. Aide said her job was "to distribute ice water every 8 hours."


01/15/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I was told on 3 separate occasions (at the initial orientation, and at two family meetings) that my husband's secondary insurance would cover the cost of rehab after 22 days. This turned out to be false and I had to pay out of pocket. Check your secondary insurance directly to see if they are in network for your policy. Don't trust what the tell you in this regard.


02/08/2010 An OurParents User Writes: On our tour of the facility, we noticed the staff, especially the CNAs, being very attentive to the people being cared for there. The call lights that we saw were answered quite quickly.

The cleanliness of the rooms, common areas and hallways was very nice. There was never any odor (you know the one, urine smell) we detected like we had in the other 2 facilities we visited the same day.

This is some place we are very strongly leaning towards for placement of our family member.

Milwaukee Catholic Home is a nursing home. It provides medical nursing service for seniors with serious illnesses or disabilities twenty-four hours a day, delivered by registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and certified nurse aids.

Nursing care facilities cater to several types of patients: some patients require short-term rehab while recovering from surgery; others require long-term nursing and medical supervision. In addition, some nursing homes offer specialized care programs for Alzheimer's or other illnesses, or short-term respite care for frail or disabled persons when a family member requires a rest from providing care in the home. Please note that you can help compare nursing homes by looking at the Medicare ratings of a given facility (Medicare has a 5-star rating system for comparing nursing homes). There are various ways for paying for care in a nursing home. Make sure you know your loved one's Medicare and Medicaid eligibility, and understand how you can use tools like long term care insurance to pay for nursing home care.

Also, Milwaukee Catholic Home is an assisted living facility. Assisted living facilities are an apartment-style habitat designed to focus on providing assistance with daily living activities. They provide a higher level of service for the elderly which can include preparing meals, housekeeping, medication assistance, laundry, and also do regular check-in's on the residents. Basically, they are designed to bridge the gap between independent living and nursing home facilities.
