Customer Reviews

A satisfactory experience of an 84 year old patient

My wife was here for almost three weeks for rehabilitation physical and occupational therapy after knee replacement surgery. She is 84 and was already handicapped with long term posterior tibial tendinitis for 18 year. So, she needed special therapy for her new knee with care. The therapists are very well qualified, some with graduate level qualifications and are very gentle and caring. She improved rapidly with their help.
Furthermore the nurses and their aides too were also well qualified and competent. The nurse practitioner in charge has the highest possible education and is very helpful if contacted. The every one does whatever is needed wether or not it is her job. For example the nurse will take away your empty dinner plate or remove garbage can if no one is there. No one says “not my job”. The kitchen staff will do whatever you ask them. This is important for a vegetarian like my wife. I am delighted with Cadia without any reservation. We love the staff and like to thank you sincerely. Their real strength is the Physical Therapy staff and the Rehab services they provide.

They have been very good with her.

They do a good job and take good care of their patients.

I would recommend Cadia Rehabilitation Pike Creek to a friend.

On the weekends, they seem to be short staffed.

I would recommend Cadia Rehabilitation Pike Creek to a loved one.

I think the rehab has been fantastic. My father's night nurse is so kind.

He likes the two girls from the therapy. They are so nice and the therapy is good.

Poor Patint Care

The management of this site is totally incompetent. The therapy staff appears to be good, but the patient care is disgraceful. Security is also an issue. I arrived to take my sister to a doctors appointment one day a few minutes before 8 am. The front door was unlocked, but reception was not manned. Anyone could walk in or out. Since the staff is very lax about wearing IDs, it is impossible to be sure who is an employee. My sister reported waiting over two hours for assistance to visit the toilet. Her pain medication was not delivered on schedule. She as having trouble eating and no one monitored her to be sure she was getting enough to eat or staying properly hydrated. I would not recommend using this facility.


Before you select this location for short term patient care please read posted reviews for your care or for family members. The PT staff is GREAT and very amiable, affable and personable with patients. But there seems to be some disconnect when it comes to a few of the nursing and aid staff, in just what you would think should be basic care or assistance and it is very unfortunate that a few give bad care to patients over shadow the rest of the staffing. Those few bad apples need better training when it comes to patient care, they are ruining what could be a good facility. I want to know that we have chosen or could recommend this facility to anyone else and I can not at this time. Rating N/A.

Don't bother

The management staff are all very rude. I will never recommend anyone to come here for rehab or to work. We could see how over worked the staff are. How hard they are busting their butts. Some of the nurses can be rude and it's hard to understand them.

EXcellent and Caring Staff

My Mother was a patient. The staff never stooped to mere competence. Everyone with whom we came in contact was caring and helpful. care plans were explained, special requests were met when appropriate. The facility was spotless. The professional staff especially Rich, my mom's lead physical therapist went beyond the extra mile. The net result was she is recovering from a difficult surgery that few people her age achieve.

I would Highly recommend this facility without reservation.

Thank you for your comments. Obviously we did not meet your expectations and will work to improve our care and services.

Not for clients who need more than physcial therapy

Think carefully about putting any family member here. staff are not friendly, and spend most of their time caring for their long term patients. I often found my family member alone in his room with an untouched tray, and he needed assistance to eat. He was often dirty and when needed assistance to toilet the call button went unanswered. He never got to attend any activity because staff was "too busy", and had our family not been present most of the time, he would have received no care at all.

If your family member is vocal and able to advocate for themselves, and able to do their own toileting, and feed themselves, then you should be okay- but then why put them in a care facility?

Think twice about choosing this facility for your loved one for rehab. Because they also accomodate long-term (non-rehab) patients, the nursing aides spend more time with those patients. Aides have no interest in your loved ones speedy or successful rehab & most don't know or care about the patient diagnosis, ability level, goals & restrictions. Ditto language barrier. If they are sensitive enough to speak to the patient, it often is not understood.

PT Dept & Doctors & nurses are great.

For rehab purposes it was fine.

Dad was here for a few weeks for a broken shoulder he had surgery on and was only there for the rehab and that was fine. The Physical Therapist was very attentive and caring. The staff was upbeat and the ones that worked in the dining room were great, but the room aides were not as caring, a lot of them were foreign and the accents made it difficult for the residents to understand. It had a different atmosphere than where he lives long term, but for rehab purposes it was fine. We felt that we had to be there all the time to be there for him so he wasn't alone. Medicare did help with this community which was nice.
