My grandma was in this place. She is now passed on. I have been getting the run around about getting her stuff. It has been over a month and a half now. No calls back and the staff when they do give you different stories all the time. As a nurse I would never treat someone who just lost a love one like this. Absolutely disrespectful.

My review!

This is a small community and it seemed clean when we visited. The staff we met were nice. They offer respite stays and some activities.

Really nice clean place with lots of caring staff. I was invited for a lunch tour, their food was prepared by an experienced chef who came and introduced himself to my family and I. Very impressed at the Southern Charm and the fact that is was the only place I could find without any deficiencies! Excellent place!

I showed up for an appointment about 10-15 early, waited 30 minutes before finally leaving. When I walked in, there was nobody sitting at the desk, residents were walking in and out the front door without anyone noticing. It wasn't as clean as it should have been. The TV was on loud, residents were just sitting around not doing much. Disappointing. Not a place I want my grandfather staying.

It was a nice place. 80's decor but clean. There are no rooms available on the first floor and the rooms are very far from the entrance. Not sure about the prices.
