Over-Priced and Under-Staffed. -  Our loved one was in the Dementia Ward which has 22 residents. There was only one aid on duty most days which left many residents left in the dining room all day with no interaction and begging to be taken to the bathroom.  Several staff shared with me the lack of staff and terrible conditions.  We are so glad we took our loved one out of there.  Her health has improved and she is smiling again.

My mom was at the Kirkland Village Health Center for several days, and my family spent many hours a day with her there. It is a cheerful and bright building with cozy rooms, a friendly and helpful staff, and many amenities and touches that made it feel like a home and a nice place to visit. There are numerous flower gardens, outdoor areas and walking paths, gathering places, a craft room and wonderful library, and a cafeteria where guests could purchase healthy and/or comfort foods. There were many staff members to help residents of the Health Center who seemed to genuinely care and who worked hard to meet the needs of the many people with needs in their care. They treated my mom with kindness and dignity and made her laugh...they were wonderful. The occupational and physical therapists working with her were patient and encouraging. They inspired my mom to keep trying to rehabilitate so that she could come home. The residents of Kirkland were welcoming and happy. My mom never got home...she passed away a couple of days ago, but Kirkland gave us an enjoyable and hopeful few days before she left us. I will forever be grateful.

My "significant other" was there in March for 2 weeks for physical rehab, hydration & nutritional admission...by the end of 2 weeks, he looked & felt better and was walking pretty good with aid of a walker. The last week of April, he had caught a bad case of bronchitis, and spent a week in the hospital. He was then transferred back to Kirkland for further treatment...again-2 weeks for physical rehab, hydration & nutritional admission...he already looks better after 1 week! The nurses there are awesome & caring...we both appreciate them all! They attended any issues within a reasonable amount of time. I would recommend this facility!

My mother was treated in the Rehabilitation/skilled nursing unit for three weeks.  She has had stays in many of the local facilities over the last 7 years.  We found the staff to be caring as well as hard working.  Even thought they were in the middle of renovating the nurses station and the hallways were overflowing with employee work stations, we were impressed with the dedication and kindness of the staff.  The Dr. was also very kind and approachable! I was contacted regularly with updates! I felt comfortable and welcomed every time I visited. Kirkland Village is our go-to when in need of rehabilitation.

My father in law has been at Kirkland for 3 weeks for temporary rehab. We have had to take him to doctor appointments 2 times.Both times he had dirty clothing on for his appointments. This looks like this place is very under staffed for this to happen.For what they charge at Kirkland you sure don't get your money's worth. Also the rehab is 15 minutes how can you recover doing that little amount of rehab? Very disappointed with the care and communication.

My dad has been at this place since Sunday. My mom visits him during the day and I come in around 5 pm to visit with him, then make sure he is changed and dressed to go to bed. There are only 2 CNA's on the floor taking care of 2 whole wings with like 40 beds. The place may look nice, but the patient to CNA ratio is grossly understaffed. My father said he wasn't offered a drink all day and that he waited a very long time after he rang his bell for assistance on going to the bathroom. I volunteer to help with my father where I can, but I cannot lift him from the wheelchair to the toilet and vise versa. I can only get him water, wash his face and make him feel comfortable. He also told me that he heard the staff complaining about their hours today. Where is the help? Does Corporate need to cut the staff so thin that the patients suffer? Not a professional way to run a rehab where people are depending on you to get better, not sit for long periods of time hoping that someone will show up to help them. NOT ACCEPTABLE!!

Kirkland Village is woefully understaffed. One or more family members visit my Mom I the rehab unit three times a day. We keep track of how long it takes for her light to be answered. It takes 15 - 25 minutes 95% of the time. Some staff have labeled my Mom as incontinent; that is not the case. She turns her light on when she has to go and can wait five minutes but not 15 - 25 minutes. Frankly I often have trouble waiting five minutes and I am able bodied and not 91. Patients on this unitrequire two assists and at least fifteen minutes to go to bed. With only two aides on the unit you can see why the gap in call bell answering time is so great. For $488/day you should expect better patient staff Ratios and a much quicker response to call lights. This is just one of anumber of glaring problems you can expect here. We all want quality care for our loved ones and it is subpar at Kirkland Village.
