Horrible I have been trying to speak to the Social Worker or Case Manager since yesterday afternoon even left a message and never received a call. I called again today since 7 am and was advised that the Social Worker would be in at 8:30 am called at 8:49 am and the Social Worker is not there, the Case manager is not there, the Director of Facility is not there. Is there anybody working there today? This is not professional at all. If somebody is being discharged home and that person needs transportation or anything else you should be able to contact that person and let them know about the persons needs in order for them not no struggle at home or the outpatient facility they will be going to.

My father is currently at Heartland of Tamarac and when I got to the facility I was not impressed. When you first walk in through the main entrance lobby the first thing I observed was the furniture looked outdated. It had a musty smell and as I was directed to my father's room by a reception worker. I was given a hand written label with my father's room number on it. As I walked through the corridor I saw all these women congregating in groups speaking Jamaican or creole. They were uninviting and looked very mean. As I approached my father's room I came across what looked liked a nurse station. I noticed noone said, "welcome" or "hello". Everyone had a long face and looked overworked and underpaid. When I reached my father's room I noticed his room was spacious, quite nice, but his bed had no rails and it's high level posed a potential risk for falls. He had no water, no remote control and noone there to help him get situated. He was hungry and somewhat confused of his surroundings. I began demanding to speak to the director or a supervisor in charge. As I expressed my concerns about my Father's bed I expressed that I to am a nurse and worked in home care 21 years. They immediately reported this back to the director. I began to notice they were heeding to my demands and got my father an adequate bed and mattress. The nurse assigned to my father was not friendly at first, but warmed up to me afterwards. My colleagues father was admitted into this facility as a permanent resident and fell from the bed and broke his hip. As a result he died. My friend sued and won the law suite. It's not a good place at all. You as a caregiver must be very vigilant and involved in the care of your loved ones and demand the best services despite the odds. See

Do not put your love ones in this place is the worst the people with attitude and treat the elderly people very bad a lot of them they don't care about them, this place shouldn't be open I just fell so sorry for me and my love one but I will take care of this situation very soon. Hi Sofia you are right this place doesn't deserve not even 1 star Hopefully sooner or later somebody will take care of this place.

STAY AWAY. If you care about yourself or your loved ones do not even think about this place. They don't even deserve one star.
