Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Terrible, incompetent management

Current management has driven out MANY good employees. Residents are DISAPPOINTED that [name removed] was made ED. She treats employees very badly, has a long record of people leaving the company due to the treatment they received from her. Many good people work there, but are treated horribly by management.

New Management again but lots of Hope

Great staff, amazing people. Too many changes but they promoted a very genuine, compassionate lady. Old management sucked but luckily they now are owned by MBK. Lots of hope for this place.

A tour for care

I toured this community and liked the staff. This community was nice. They do not provide that type of care I needed for my father's care. The community is older, but we found it to me clean. The staff are very caring. Families might tour this community for the care needed for a loved one.
