Cheyenne Healthcare Center Description

Memory Care
Caring for a family member or friend with dementia can be both mentally and physically taxing - but you know that the love you share is worth every effort. The weight of expectation can put a strain on familial and platonic relationships. At a memory care unit, your loved one will be enveloped in an atmosphere of peace and comfort while receiving 24/7 attention. Furthermore, they'll partake in various activities that offer them fulfillment and direction. Centers employ musical and memory-strengthening programs to help patients live life with the utmost joy every day.

Rehabilitation
Licensed therapists provide rehabilitation services to help you regain strength, function, cognition and communication capabilities.

Skilled Nursing
Sometimes a hospital stay of more than just a couple days is necessary for full recuperation from an ailment or operation. At each center, the dedicated nursing staff offer round-the-clock care to ensure a smooth transition from hospitalization back into your home. They give a comprehensive analysis of your wellness and devise an individualized plan of action that serves as the foundation for enhancing your health.

    This place was horrible! My FIL was there for three weeks. He constantly had to change rooms! They didn't bother to change his socks for a whole week, with him having an ulcer on his ankle! Much less giving him a shower or cleaning him properly. I took pictures of the dirty bathroom in his room that hadn't been cleaned at least two days in a row. Overall I would not recommend anyone taking their loved ones who need assistance to this place!When you walk in the main entrance, the lobby already smells like urine, badly. People in wheel chairs are not being taken care of!The only good thing about this place was PT!!!!

    My husband has been here for about two months now. He gets excellent care and really likes the staff, his DR, and the other patients. It's nice to have some place that takes such good care of him.They stay in constant contact with me and make sure I know what's happening with him and his care. I think I can speak for both of us when I say we are both very happy with his service and care there.

    My mom was checked in here for rehabilitation after doing chemotherapy to rebuild her strength. After only one night there she called me the next morning crying saying that she could not stay here because it took them over 4 hours to get her pain medication. She also said there was bugs in her room and had pictures to prove it. Most of the staff are just rude and not caring at all. If you are looking for care for you loved ones I would consider looking somewhere else.

    If I could mark a pinpoint @ the bottom of a star, I would.This was THE WORST PLACE, EVER!!!I can't even begin to explain the horror of it!I had to call the front desk, main phone number to get a nurse one night.I had to call the On-call dr. to get my I.V. antibiotic run through the machine properly. My niece came and told them to do their jobs and I was punished for it! My pain meds were withheld and the nurses were incredibly rude. I had just had open heart surgery, had cellulitis, a staph infection in the spinal cord causing compression and they refused to help me up to use the bathroom.That's just a glimpse of it.
