I am pleased to share my work experience as the Activities Director for Pelican Ridge Post Acute. In the activities department we offer events, performances, parades and activities beyond that many nursing homes cannot provide, since for our administrator one of his priorities is to provide care and happiness according to the needs of each of our residents.

The heart of any skilled nursing facility lies in its staff, and I can confidently say that the team at Pelican Ridge is exceptional. From the nurses to the caregivers to the therapists, everyone demonstrates a genuine commitment to providing personalized care with dignity and respect. Their expertise and compassion are evident in every interaction, making residents feel valued and supported. I have been a part of the therapy team here for almost 2 years now and would whole-heartedly recommend this facility to anyone in need of short-term rehabilitation.

I am an Occupational Therapist that works at this facility currently. I have really enjoyed being a staff member at this facility and have only positive experiences to report. The rehab team is always supportive and helpful throughout daily tasks. Aubree, the Director of Rehab, is a great team lead and example for how to be patient forward and positive always. I enjoy working with patients on a daily basis and am very satisfied with the rehab staff at this facility.

My grandma recovered here for a few weeks and I was skeptical at first, but right away my family and I were reassured that she’d be well taken care of!  Everyone was so kind to my grandma and genuine! Thank you to all the staff for caring for our beloved matriarch.

Just wanting to give a big shout out to the incredible staff at this amazing facility!

Marco was very professional and kind in managing my mom’s stay here. Teresa was a blessing and an inspiration in helping my mom in her daily tasks. The PT department is outstanding and caring in patients’ recovery. Ernesto and Kimbery were a joy and guided Mom in her activities. There were others that I didn’t get their names but know that you also are included in the A+ Team at Pelican Ridge Post-Acute! It’s because of all of you that my mom had a wonderful experience at the worst time in her life. God Bless all of you and your families!

This facility gets not only 5 stars it gets 100 stars beautiful decor!

My husband is staying here prior to his surgery. It is immaculately clean, bright,with efficient and caring staff. Their Physical Therapy department always makes my husband smile. Their occupational therapy staff are very professional and the activities are enjoyable….they fuss over my husband while they gently challenge him. But the real treasure is their head of admissions, Keishall. Everyone calls her “KK”. That woman is a joy. When needing to secure a private room due to his doctor’s orders…she made sure that was done. She arranged transportation from her facility to his pre-op doctor’s visits with efficiency and good humor. She is so competent and has made any challenges getting transportation so easy. I am eternally grateful for her “can do” attitude, professionalism and helpfulness. What ever they are paying her…it is not enough. She is a true ambassador for the facility and is so helpful. They are upgrading their facility and expanding services so there was some construction noise during the day that my husband noted. I would highly recommend this facility. Clean, cheery, competent staff, and their angel, Ms. Keishall who can get things done with her super powers and compassion. 5 stars

This facility is clean and recently refurbished. However, as with most care facilities, the staff is spread very thin and the patients/residents are not given much space (a typical semi-private room barely has space for two beds, two bedside tables and maybe a visitor chair if you’re lucky.) If you want your loved one properly cared for, create a good relationship with key staff and be present as often as possible. A lot can be said for close surveillance and follow-up. My Brother in Law’s care was better than I had expected for someone on Medicare and without assets because we followed the above advice.

I was a resident here from March 2016 til my discharge Sept 2018. I am forever grateful for the care, support, compassion, & friendship I received in my stay here! I found the staff as a whole very professional and caring. Are there problems? Of course but they make an effort to address them. The therapy Dept were top notch in their knowledge and the way they handled the residents. I found it to be the right place at the right time for me, as I left as well as I can be physically and a better person with a positive outlook.

When our daughter entered Hospice care, we were fortunate enough to be guided to the facility by Dale. We cannot say enough kind words to describe the care she received there. They not only cared for her needs with skill and kindness, they treated us, her family members with the same respect. Fernando facilitated getting her settled into her room with great efficiency and made her comfort his number one priority. We spoke with him often and appreciated his consoling words. Aimee was always there to answer our questions and address any concerns we had about her nursing care. In the 2 1/2 weeks our daughter was there, prior to her passing, she was cared for by a number of the RN, LVN, and CNA staff. To single any one of them out as extra special would not be possible. So we would like to send our utmost thanks and appreciation to each and everyone of them.

Too bad I can only give it five stars. The facility deserves 10+ star rating. I was sent to this place weighing 111 pounds my normal weight was 180. After spending over three months in the hospital I was released here to get better and increase my weight and learn how to walk and swallow food and beverages again.

I was very leery as I’ve been to two other nursing homes in Orange County that were awful. My first contact with one of the staff was Christy the speech therapist who said she was there to help me swallow my food and check in and see what my capabilities were for eating and drinking.

Little did I realize that she would become an advocate for me with all the departments in the outside world. This was a day before they declared the CV 19 wow pandemic. Thank you very much for being my advocate and getting my weight from 111 pounds to 135 in one month. You also were my inspiration to put forth 100% effort in physical therapy to get me to walk with a walker to get out of bed also are responsible for making sure my medicines and all other requests were done to my satisfaction.

Thank you to Frank in the food service department for giving me a menu of all of the monthly meals breakfast lunch and dinner and showing me that I could select an alternative meal for lunch and dinner and if I did not like the alternative is I could get a hamburger or a quesadilla or a salad. You also told me and made sure that I got my two snacks a day in the afternoon and at night time you’ve got me hooked on graham crackers milk and a banana.

Thank you to all the nurses, Nurses aides, and cleaning staff who made sure that I was comfortable clean and my medications were properly administered in a timely manner. There are too many names to mention at this time but all I can say is THANK YOU

The physical rehabilitation department is outstanding all of the therapists were super impressed me and made sure that I did not over exert myself but made sure that I was on track and improving myself daily.

Last but not least the administrative staff and all of the people and administration building and entertainment you are the best. I’ve never known of a facility where you could just go to an office of the administrator knock and enter and talk one on one.

This is coming from a man who is in the healthcare industry and used to sell and service nursing homes and hospitals and I have been in to rehabilitation facilities in orange county that were hellholes. This place is truly the best.

When I left this facility on Friday I never received so many miss you and goodbye and good luck wishes from So many people.

I have surgery scheduled in June of this year and know that if I need a facility for rehabilitation I will return.

If my parents were still alive today and needed a healthcare facility I would take them here.

I was very pleased with the care my 88 year old father was given after my father fell and fractured his hip and broke his wrist. Everyone at the facility from your Nurses to your PT’s
were very helpful and friendly always willing to help whenever he needed someone.
