  • Do not put your parent here!!

    Don’t believe the lies that [name removed] (the so called “Director”) will feed you or [name removed] either. This organization is not full of love and friends and compassion. It used to be but since the new director has come in it seems she is more interested in giving her personal friends jobs instead of worrying about the welfare of the residents. Many residents who were living there, now no longer do. This also goes for most of the staff that was originally there. The staff that knew my mom and loved her are gone. When [name removed] is making decisions, it is to flatter her own ego and not in the best interest of the residents. Be careful when putting your parent here! It is not what it is made out to be. My mother used to reside here and loved it but she no longer felt comfortable being there. She said the feel and atmosphere changed and it never felt like home again.. Taking her out of there was the best decision I have ever made!
