A great place!!

Ongoing renovations are really starting to sparkle at Scarlet Oaks Retirement Community. The management team that has been in place for awhile are making wonderful and noticeable improvements in all aspects of care.

Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Don't bother

All of the photos are from the beautiful mansion, NOT the Assisted Living or Nursing wing. The food is sub-standard. This facility has been bought and sold many times over the past several years in an attempt to improve but each time it gets worse. Most of the veteran long term employees have moved on to better jobs. Most of the current staff are overworked as they do not properly fill the positions appropriate for how much care is needed for the residents. Once upon a time this facility was very nice with enough staff to attend to the needs of the residents. No longer. Go take a tour & you will see. Very sad.
