Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Wish I Could Say Better

It is sad to write a poor review of a facility that took care of your loved one for quite a few years. Carolina Gardens at Kathwood has so much potential and some nice, caring people on staff (the kitchen staff are apparently long time and fabulous) but the place has been a mess.Over the years, they have been sold two, three or more times. The elevator is broken so often that it is expected to see one or both out of commission when you show up.The grounds are nice and the facility is well kept and attractive. The level of care at times was very poor. The turnover of leadership staff seemed constant. You simply can't be first class under those conditions.
