Rochester Senior Demographics

Rochester is home to several renowned universities that provide invaluable research and development programs and was where Xerox, Kodak and Bausch & Lomb made their starts. It exceeds both New York and Buffalo in per capita income even though it trails both cities slightly in overall GMP. Its low jobless rate and cost of living combined with a highly diverse population and access to excellent public education make it the city of choice for over 210,000 residents.

Roughly 9% of its population is made up of senior citizens and many are also nearing retirement age— which will increase the demand for quality nursing care in the near future. Those seniors who wish to maintain active social lives and participate in activities ranging from exercise classes to group trips or games can access the city’s network of senior centers through the Monroe County’s Senior Center and Meal Programs.

New Roc Nursing and Rehabilitation Center
1335 Portland Avenue
Rochester, NY 14621
(585) 544-4000

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: One of the ways that for profit corporations have lined their pockets is by reducing staff levels to dangerously low levels. The lack of qualified and properly trained staff members results in a diminished standard of care. This facility’s horrible health inspection history and poor quality measures score are reflective of a one star staff quality score. The most effective way this facility can turn things around is to start by employing more qualified staff members.

Monroe Community Hospital
435 East Henrietta Road
Rochester, NY 14620
(585) 760-6500

Ownership— County government

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: This nursing center is located within a hospital, and while its staff is considered “average” by Medicare’s standards, the facility lacks proper quality measures and touts a meager two star health inspection score.

The Highlands at Brighton
5901 Lac de Ville Boulevard
Rochester, NY 14618
(585) 442-7960

Ownership— Non-profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: Poor quality measures and an abysmal health inspection record haunt this facility and its staff is barely adequate to tend to the needs of all patients.

Brighton Manor
989 Blossom Road
Rochester, NY 14610
(585) 482-3500

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: With a health inspection and quality measures rating of one star each, this nursing home has very little to offer residents. Health and safety deficiencies can increase the risk of hygienic concerns, facilitate the spread of disease and result in accidents due to a poorly cleaned and maintained environment.

The Hurlbut
1177 East Henrietta Road
Rochester, NY 14623
(585) 424-4770

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: Understaffing seems to be the root cause for this facility’s ills. Despite an above average quality measures rating, it suffers from numerous health and safety deficiencies and has a one star staff quality rating. This suggests that while proper protocols are in place, an inadequate staff is stretched too thin to be able to provide quality care.

Creekview Nursing and Rehab Center
525 Beahan Road
Rochester, NY 14624
(585) 247-7880

Ownership— For profit corporation

Participates in Medicare/Medicaid: Yes

Overall Rating— 1 star out of 5

1 star rating

Primary concerns: There is very little that this facility has gotten right. It employs a skeleton staff, has a horrid health safety record and has mediocre quality measures in place to enrich the experience of members. Yet another example of what can result when for profit corporations place profits over the needs of patients.

How to tell if Your Loved One is a Victim of Abuse or Neglect

Our Rochester nursing home injury lawyers are often asked what the clear signs are that a loved one is being mistreated and when to take legal action. The symptoms of abuse can mimic certain neurological and psychological conditions which may be the reason your loved one requires care to begin with. Many of our clients reach out because they can just tell that their loved ones are not themselves and things seem off.

The following symptoms should not be ignored and you should contact an attorney the moment you notice one or more of them to launch an investigation.

  • Your loved one gets quiet in the presence of his or her caregiver. He or she may also quickly change behavior after the caregiver leaves.
  • Your loved one experiences bouts of depression or anger which are not a part of his or her normal behavior.
  • You notice physical signs of restraint or abuse.
  • You notice your loved one has rapidly lost weight or feels faint.
  • Your loved one develops bedsores or an infection.
  • Your loved one is hospitalized and you are not satisfied with staff members’ explanations on why.

★★★★★
Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
