I dont understand how a place that prides themselves on taking care of individuals, can be so naive. A patient comes to you for rehab and help and within 72 hours you dang near kill them, because of NEGLECT! how you seem to have the amount of stars you have just baffles me. Your job is to care and take care of your patients. Not just see them as a damn dollar sign. CARE IS IN YOUR DAMN NAME! Do your jobs and actually care for a person not treat them as another dollar!
I have worked here it was a great place to work I loved the residents I worked with they we're great people. The sad part about working in a nursing home is that the residents do not get the care and the personnel attention that they do so deserve. This why I love doing in home personnel care because they have the 1one1 care they don't have to wait for ever for someone to answer their call light to get to the bathroom or to get there personal care needs or other needs met that they may need. They can maintain as much of their independent as possible while still getting the care they need in the privacy of their own home. I'm by no means putting nursing homes down I just don't feel that people that go into a nursing home get the love and care that they deserve. This what brought me to wanting to do home health care so that I can meet the needs of all my clients on a 1 on 1 basis. And they get their personal care that they deserve.
I have been a patient at LCCA twice now. I was there in Oct. 2014 for 2 and 1/2 months after spinal cord surgery. The management team did everything they could to make sure I had everything I needed through PT, OT, speech therapy and the nutrionist to assist me in learning how to walk again and learn how to take care of myself when I got home. I spent most of 40 years in my professional career working with a variety of disabilities. It made me very aware of how many times my clients were treated as if they were invisible. Therefore I was perhaps hyper-attentive to the way I saw other residents at LCCA being treated. From everything I saw, all residents were treated with dignity and respect, no matter what their disability was. I was also shown how to get my concerns or problems addressed. Bryan, the executive director, was always accessible and approachable and constantly asking residents if they needed anything. He made it a point to be a visible presence in the hallways and dining rooms where he would greet and chat with residents and staff.In April of 2017 I had another surgery and needed more rehab before I could go home. Again my experience was excellent. This time I was just there for 16 days. I was very pleased to see many familiar faces, from CNAs, nurses, doctors, PTs, OTs, speech therapists, to the dietary staff, and housekeeping. Some of these jobs are physically demanding and true, some don't pay real well. But the people I've met there didn't gripe about long hours for short pay. Many of the staff I'd met 3 years ago were still there and welcomed me back. It is a testament to the management team that the turnover rate is relatively low compared to many similar facilities. This provides a high level of continuity of care not found elsewhere. No one goes into social services expecting to get rich. These people are there for us, the patients. When I knew I needed intensive rehab to get my independence back I knew Life Care would again get me in shape to go home, and they did. I am currently doing out patient OT there and have been very pleased to have the OT that worked with me before. So for anyone needing what LCCA can offer, I cannot give them a high enough rating. And if you have had a negative experience there I encourage you to speak to Bryan. I am quite sure he will be happy to talk with you.
