Westside Care Center

  • B.J. and I have been friends for about 35 years. Being alone wasn't good for him, so he moved in with us and I have been taking care of him ever since. When it became apparent that I could no longer care for B.J. at home, we decided on another Skilled Nursing Facility. I thought that that place was good, until it closed, and we brought B.J. here to Westside. He was happy here right away! Eric, his Therapist, performed miracles, and got him to walk without any pain! They gave him a special chair that reclines. He's happy. He's always smiling. At the other place, he was sleeping all the time. Here he's up, he reads, and participates in recreation. I think he feels secure. You never see the nurses just sitting behind a desk doing nothing. I know that I made the right decision bringing B.J. to Westside. I never worry about him receiving good care. I would definitely recommend this facility."

  • I had never been to a nursing home before Westside. Once I got here, I felt comfortable to stay a while. The staff is very nice, and I like the recreation here. They have a lot going on. I play bingo the best! My sisters come to visit me on a regular basis, and I have a lot of freedom. People always want to come to Westside, and I always recommend it."

  • I came to Westside for Rehab after I broke my hip. I really appreciate the staff here because they are excellent, and I am getting better everyday. Therapy gives me strength. I also enjoy making crafts with recreation and I crotchet blankets that I give to others.

  • They were always willing to lend a helping hand and lend assistance to anything I asked. They seemed to be taking good care of [Resident]. April was very nice and helped us out a great deal. I know they were right in tune with the way they treated him, and I really appreciated that. I would tell them that my experience there was pleasurable. It was a clean place with a knowledgeable staff. They were on top of things.

  • They have very kind people there, and I miss them. They were very good to me. I love everyone there. If I needed some place to go again, I would go back there. I would recommend it to anyone that needed to go there. They are very nice.

  • The staff at Westside were very good to me. I felt very safe and well cared for. I am more than satisfied with all of the services I received here. I loved the physical therapy team, they were very motivating and got me back on my feet. My iRecovery counselor Edwin is excellent, and is a good person, so kind and caring. The iRecovery program helped to cope…and I feel much stronger because of it. I truly feel I am ready to go home and be successful.
