A friends dad was there, and had been for a few months or so. While he was a patient there he fell on the floor, unsupervised, numerous times. He was given the wrong dosage of meds multiple times. He had suffered many unexplained injuries. Hours would go by, while we visited, and nobody came to check on him. His nurse call button always seemed to be on the floor, under his bed. Very alarming. Other patients would be sitting in the halls, for hours on end, in the same positions. Some screaming, others begging for me to help them or to answer questions for them. One woman would always be sitting in the main hall, facing the wall, alone in her wheelchair, every single time we would visit. So sad! Seniors should never be treated like this! He's a veteran also. Such a shame! Please avoid this place!
I used to work in a county run nursing home in NJ as a dinner cook. This nursing home is so much better!! It is very clean and well kept. They have a wonderful staff and they are very friendly. They are providing the most wonderful care for my Mama!! The food is good. Lots of activities for patients and great physical therapy. It's in a very convenient location!!!!
Top Notch’d service. You would think you were at a 5 star restaurant Or hotel from the attention given to detail from the therapy. Staff always have a smile or kind words to give. Not only do they treat your body but they also treat your mind with positive re-enforcment. From the top in Administrator to housekeeping everyone is always encouraging for the total mind, body and soul rehabilitation. Great job Laurels!!!
So far not so good. My autistic brother was admitted here with a confirmed positive COVID case that we were told nothing about prior to his admission. The case worker from MJH also said she was told nothing of it prior to his being admitted. To top this off we find out we cannot visit because of this positive case. In addition the staff has not been easy to talk to and work with. So far I am not very impressed and would not recommend this facility to anyone that I know based on the poor experience we have had thus far. This facility is not set up to deal with the special needs of my brother, this much is apparent.
My mother has been there since December 2020 ~They are so very good to her~ I cannot imagine her being elsewhere! The entire staff including EVERYONE THAT CLOCKS IN THERE has been nothing but kind and helpful to Mama and us ( her family) we are grateful for the laurels & I highly recommend them🙌♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
I am 38 years old and was in a pretty serious accident dislocating and breaking both of my ankles. I was non weight bearing when I arrived at the Laurels. I had to learn how to only use my upper body. The OT and PT at the Laurels was absolutely phenomenal. They pushed me and would not let me give up. They wanted to help me get home to my family just as bad as I wanted to get home. The nurses are fantastic and so kind. The CNA's were great a little over worked in my opinion but truly great. They did their very best to answer the call bell as promptly as possible. It didn't always happen quickly, but they did answer and when answered they gave you their full attention.I didn't go to the Laurel's for gourmet meals or 5 star living, I went to the Laurel's for rehab and I am telling you they have an amazing rehab team. I would recommend them over and over again.
Truly one of the best experiences in my life, from the Doctor, nursing staff, cna, administration, kitchen staff and most definitely. My Physical Therapy Team, They Were the Absolute the“Best”. I will always be grateful for my time at This Facility and Truly blessed to have come out of there in good health🙏❤️🙏
My family member has been a skilled nursing care resident of the Laurels of Charlottesville for almost 3 consecutive years. The care my family member receives from the nursing staff is very good, all residents seem happy; there are plenty of activities to keep them engaged. The facility is well cared for, always tidy and presentable. We did experienced some administrative challenges in the beginning but the right people are in place now and everything runs smoothly. The staff has been eager to address and resolve minor inconveniences with missing laundry or dietary needs. Nothing is perfect but given the number of residents on site and the level of care my loved one receives, I recommend Laurels of Charlottesville without reservation.
Both of my parents have lived at the Laurels for several years. My dad passed away last year and the nurses, CNA's, and other staff have all taken my mom under their wing to make sure that she has the support that she needs. She is in the memory care unit and the patience that they exhibit with her is just wonderful to see. It has been difficult these past months to not have much contact with Mom and the other residents I have come to know but I feel confident that they are getting the care and attention they need. I look forward to thanking everyone personally if life ever gets back to normal!
My father has been at the Laurels since July 2019. I can’t say enough about the staff and the level of care they have given to Dad. The rehab facility is excellent and the physical therapists really individualized the exercises for Dad. The CNAs and the Nurses have all been very responsive to the daily care and special needs required for my father’s care [he is now bedridden]. The facility is clean and activities are offered for residents that are engaging. I would give a five star rating except for the food which is pretty standard institutional fare. Once again, it’s the caring staff and administration that make The Laurels a truly exceptional skilled nursing home.
