I gave this facility a one star review because.....

"McAuley once had a great reputation as a wonderful and caring facility, but just recently with the merger of Provena & Resurrection + Presence Health, the care has declined drastically.

With the many senior falls in 2014 with serious life-threatening injuries due to the cutting down of nursing staff hands-on care. Just within 3 weeks - 18 seniors had fallen, some with head injuries and fractures, resulting in 2 possible deaths pending a TEN day Illinois Department of Public Health investigation.

How many of you can testify that your loved one did not receive the proper medication within a timely manner detrimental to their health and were not properly screened so the facility's' qualified staff can take care of them properly?

Look up the administrator at the time healthcare background, or the lack thereof, and see for yourself if he knows what he's doing. It's all public knowledge.

The activity department? SAD, SAD, SAD. Why? Because they are denied funds by corporate. However, did you hear about the $147 million dollar medical building - PRESENCE HEALTH (the largest non-for-profit Catholic Healthcare Organization in Illinois) is building down-town-Chicago on your loved ones $$$$?

There is good reason why census is LOW and once dedicated staff members have moved on, not sharing in McAuley's ignominy. In fact some of their most dedicated and caring caregivers initiated and participated in this investigation, risking their jobs for the safety of their patients!

Call the Illinois Department of Public Health for an update on their 10 day investigation to see what they found. After all isn't your loved one worth it?

Also, Presence Hospitals have fallen to a 3 star rating this year, 2015.

....and caring.com never posted it. Instead they posted a ONE five star review because no doubt Presence is one of their a paid advertisers!

My daughter was married in August 2014 and hired Labo's Flower & Gifts shop to create the floral arrangements that were absolutely gorgeous! We were afraid the colors she chose wouldn't be as perfect and vibrant using fresh flowers and not silk, so she trusted Labo's to create and arrange the perfect bouquets and boutonnieres. The colors popped against the royal blue dresses, as well as the black tuxedos, just the way we imagined they would. We received so many compliments with others wanting to touch them to see if they were REAL and not silk. The bride's bouquet, different in colors and flowers, were just as GORGEOUS. They were delivered an hour and a half away on a hot & rainy day and still arrived fresh as if they had just been picked and arranged! We would definitely do business with them again.

Tip for consumers: This is a small shop but don't let that fool you.

The place was absolutely beautiful with the lighting, the spiral staircase and table arrangements, etc... And you'll receive a lot for your money, such as the delicious dinner & wedding cake, a photo booth and much more. The wedding ceremony was held there and was beautiful as well. My only complaint was the chairs not positioned on the carpeted area were sliding all over the tile. The wedding dinner for the guests was a plated steak Filet dinner. The steak was delicious, but a much smaller version of what we were expecting because we were served a larger steak on sampling night. The veggies were yummy except the carrots weren't cooked all the way through, causing me to think about the guests who a had dentures. The horderves were served both butler & buffet-style. The tastier (and more expensive) ones served butler-style weren't refilled quick enough for my liking. The attendants were very helpful and very attentive. Within the last hour, they were taking down the decorations which was disturbing. The time was paid for, so I thought it was a little unprofessional of them to do this. Thank goodness the last guests to leave were family. But all-in-all I would recommend this place, but would inform others to address the concerns we had prior to booking the wedding and don't just read the 5-star reviews!

Tip for consumers: Please check out not only the five star reviews but others that may be helpful.

My daughter thought she found a legit Cosmetologist and Makeup Artist from this website only to find out Beauty by Camille is a fraud. She doesn't event hold a license to practice in the state of Illinois! My daughter hired Camille to do air-brush makeup and hair for her wedding after finding her via the five star reviews on weddingwire. Several girls in the wedding party went to her supposed shop on a Sunday prior to the wedding, which was closed by the way (red light?), and she did a fine enough job that my daughter hired her. However, at the wedding Camille brought someone else to do the makeup who did NOT use an airbrush. The makeup looked caked on! Camille gave us the lame excuse the airbrush broke. She was also an hour late, making the future bride a nervous wreck b/c her makeup was done last! She had been taken off several wedding sites because we submitted an honest review they actually investigated unlike weddingwire. Camille's partner frantically collected the cash as soon as the makeup was done as if she feared we wouldn't want to pay her! She is now under investigation by several agencies such as the IRS (because she only accepts ca$h) & the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation just to mention a few, not to mention we're seeking legal action against both Camille/Lesko & weddingwire. Save yourself the heartache and pay the extra $$$ and find someone who is not an IMPOSTER. Your wedding day is too special! God bless. And shame on WEDDING.WIRE for allowing this scammer!

Tip for consumers: They don't investigate their venders to find out if they're legit!

We should have read these reviews before we signed up with them. They totally lied to us. The sales rep said our kitten would be covered even though we told them he had a preexisting condition. Then when we submitted a claim to get reimbursement, we waited several months before we called to ask what the hold up was. That's when we were informed our kitten wouldn't be covered d/t its preexisting condition. When we informed them of what we were told, they replied we never should have been told that! Well we were and now what are you going to do about your sales rep LYING to us? Nothing! But then asked if we would still like to stay with them? Really? Of course, we like getting scammed! We're glad it was only $30. Could have been a lot worse. STAY AWAY! If it sounds too good to be true, it is!

Tip for consumers: Don't be fooled into just reading the 5 stars reviews! This site doesn't allow the honest reviews if the vender disputes them even if the vender doesn't have a legit license to operate.
