No patience for My Husband!!!!

I found the experience with my husband was terrible. Was called at 5:00 pm to come and get him. Was told he was too aggressive. When I got there I had no idea what I should do with him, because he could not come home. No offer of assistance was made available and I had to transport him to NW hospital at rush hour traffic with an aggressive person. Then I tried to get my deposit back and a refund for the month that was all paid for and I got the run around. Money is what is all about...screw the family and the resident.

Elderly Lives Matter

My father was a resident in the memory care unit for three weeks. He fell and contracted pneumonia in his first week. I had to hire my own nighttime aides after one week. I removed him after the third week. I believe my father was being abused in their facility. He had bruises, they couldn’t explain how he fell. These memory care units are not safe for elderly dementia residents. They only care about the money and they are extremely deceitful. My father is gone now, my heart breaks for all the elderly in these places. There is little to no oversight for these facilities. I have attempted to complain to many entities and I’m still trying. If you have a bad experience, keep complaining, keep giving bad reviews. Our elderly deserve so much better.
