Reviews of Royal Columbian Retirement Inn
- Not enough staff
My Mother was there for 19-months. I think the staff have good intentions, but they can't seem to get their employees to stay. We had to deal with staff shortages, not trained and unhappy with their jobs....
the facility had an uncomfortable smell not overwhelming but there. We had lunch which was good and the staff were nice, but too much time was spent on his history and not focused on our needs.
- Going through a rough transition
My mother was there for six years, it was a very good palce, but it kind of was going through some transitions that were really bumpy, she was too unhappy there and the cost was getting to us so we moved her...
