I’m absolutely recommending this facility, it’s very clean, nice rooms, and has amazing staff! They welcomes you and they respect any person who is staying there. My mom was admitted after the acute hospital and she was difficult. I was constantly on the phone with nurses or any staff member, they always were polite and respectful. There is daily physical therapy, always assisted walks, beds are change daily, and just perfect services. If mom had disliked some meals it would be changed for something else immediately. They always had fresh juices, milk, and veggies. Thank you Lake Balboa for keeping our parents safe and very comfortable.
My mother was here after a total knee replacement. This place is well known in the community and also among the reputable doctors in the valley as the BEST REHAB place. Staff was great and they have great nursing care and had the best therapy program. Unlike other facilities, this place doesn’t feel like an institution, it has a home-like setting and people here are just warm and friendly. Check it out on medicare.gov, Fireside is the only 5-star facility. A lot of other facilities are 1 or 2 stars. I would be scared to bring my family there.
Thank you so very much for everything you have done for my mother. Thank you for taking such
great care of her every day. We are blessed to have such wonderful, special people like you in this world.
Thank you again! Sincerely,
“Fireside Health Care Center is a 5-Star Rated Facility by Medicare” You will find this quote on their website as well as at this great facility.
When a dear friend of mine was recovering after some major surgery, she was brought here for post-surgery rehab and physical therapy. The dedicated staff do amazing work.
Everyone here has been great. Better than I expected. Everyone was helpful, nice, and attentive. So amazing. We appreciate each and every person here! You guys took great care of our dad/husband/son/grandfather.
I just wanted to take this time to thank you all for the care and kindness I received while I was recuperating in your facility. You were all truly instrumental in my getting back my health and independence and I cannot thank you enough. I wish you all good health and happiness.
Thanks very much (mil gracias) to all the staff of the Lake Balboa Care Center – nurses, therapists, administrators, and all of the rest of the many employees who make the stay and recuperation so pleasant. Let’s not forget the kitchen help. The meals were excellent.
I’m leaving today and it is bittersweet. This has become a family to me! The care of everyone is A .
A special thank you to my nurses Lyn, Chamie, Elle, Alan, to name a few the therapists and the staff are terrific.
Thank you for love and helping me.
I wanted to express my deep felt gratitude to each of you for making my stay here so wonderful. From the beginning I felt welcome beyond what I could have imagined. Your help and kindness got me through the worst of days, for this I am eternally thankful. I have also made friendships here that I will never forget. So to each of you, I say farewell and thank you for a job well done.
P.S. I have been at 3 other care centers and this one is so far superior, it’s impossible to compare.
