  • Care is good for the price.

    Staff is always happy. They are a community I can afford for my mom. They have great security. My mom’s room is great. Some of the rooms are updated. Food is okay, they do have an alternate menu if you don’t like the nightly specials. It is harder for residents that can’t advocate for themselves. The administrative staff /management is great. They are very friendly and welcoming.

  • Overly Medicated

    My relative was in the facility for 2 months before going to live with family. She was very active when she first arrived, but 2 months later she was barely walking and had limited interactive communication. After less than 48 hours at home she continued to be lethargic and eventually refused to walk. She was taken to the hospital for evaluation where we learned she had been overly medicated while at the facility. She spent 2 weeks in the hospital detoxing before being released to return home. Very disappointed.
