Kinkaid Cluster
They hire people with little or no training to take care of physically and mentally handicapped persons. They are shown by the current staff how to do their job which includes how to lift a 250 lb. man out of his wheelchair into his bed by using a Hoyer lift. The nursing staff is mainly LPN's and the ancillary staff runs from Kinkaid to several other facilities owned by Florida Mentor. You are told there will be a nurse and at least 2 or 3 techs to each building. This is not true, since the wages are so low any LPN or tech who can get a better paying job will leave at the first opportunity. They usually have 2 nurses for 3 buildings and maybe 2 techs for each building. When one tech leaves the building to take a dinner break or meet her boyfriend in the parking lot this leaves her alone with up to 16 patients waiting to have a diaper changed or to be turned. Drop by around 3 AM, you will find some staff asleep or watching TV. The patients receive socialization during daytime.

Dr. Elliott Rosenbaum, Psychologist
I have had problems with depression for the past couple of years and have felt like no one has been helpful until I started working with Dr. Rosenbaum. He listened to my history and took careful notes and then gave me some incredibly insightful feedback. He has helped me so much that I also brought my husband who has been working with Dr. Rosenbaum and says he is a gift. I highly recommend him to anyone.

More like a nursing home than assisted living. No exercise equipment...even a stationary bicycle. Dining is at long tables, like a dorm or penitentiary. They did have tables for four but did away with them. Food is not bad but little variation I'm menu. I see no activities for dementia residents.. They mostly park them here and there.

I was traumatized in a bad car accident and lost my fiancé in the crash. I have had PTSD for many years and Dr. Rosenbaum's therapy and coaching techniques have helped me find a new lease on life. He's an excellent doctor, would recommend him to anyone dealing with emotional trauma.

Dr. Rosenbaum helped me with my anxiety and fear of flying. He did CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and taught me some deep relaxation techniques. The next day I was flying with almost no anxiety. Great experience.

Gorgeous community in a great location. Love the huge movie theater and the privacy of trees all around it. I am frequently at The Windsor and the staff is always friendly and the residents seem happy.

Beautiful facility with good food. Very lovely place for healthy and able-bodied adults. Not as good for those with difficulties.

Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
