I have been a long-term patient at shoreview for several years now, while recovering from a massive stroke. The facility is not perfect but I’m astonished at the negativity of some of the reviews here. The staff, including nurses,nurses assistants and physical and occupational therapists are caring, patient and extremely hard working. Management seems to take a personal interest in each and every patient/resident. Many staff members are almost extraordinarily caring, diligent and hard working. Many forego there own break or meal time to attend to a patients physical and emotional needs. Obviously offering one on one personal care is difficult, if not impossible. Many family members do not seem to understand that their loved ones are not the only patients that need care. And the staff can’t drop what they’re doing to immediately attend to their family member. But for the most part the staff finds a way to provide quality care at all times. I sincerely and heartily recommend shoreview Nursing and Rehab.
My father had hip replacement surgery earlier this year and stayed here for 1.5 weeks for physical therapy. He got his own room and bathroom (that could be because he was about 30-50 years younger than the rest of the patients lol). The room was a comfortable size and had everything he needed, even a closet. The showers were in a different area on the same floor as his room, but I didn’t see them so I can’t comment on them.
Within a few hours of him checking in, there was a lot of staff that came to introduce themselves, one by one… his physical therapist, nurse, doctor, etc. Everyone seemed polite and professional. Almost all of them spoke Russian, which was a plus for us. They all explained their specific role in his recovery and how they would be working with him.
During his stay, my dad had a schedule to stick to everyday. Wake up, physical therapy, breakfast, rest…repeat. He was on his feet and walking fairly quickly!
