  • Don't Judge by Appearances

    The facility is very attractive. However, they are seriously understaffed, and residents are underserved. The foodservice has been declining over the past two years. Management needs to be overhauled, as they do not seem to care about the quality of the business - only about appearances.

  • Beautiful Facility-Sad nursing treatment

    The facility is beautiful on the outside and inside. The dining area is beautiful, activities director does an excellent job at keeping residents engaged and housekeeping seems to be mostly decent. My concern is the nursing department. The girls always seem to be working extremely hard. Ive spoke to day and night shift and for the most part they seem to all be giving their best. My issues is the structure, or lack there of. They cant seem to keep a DON(which is the main reason our loved ones are in the facility-the nursing supervision and care). The one im assuming head lady of some sort that appearently runs scheduling and does meds is by far the most rude, degrading staff member ive witnessed. To say she needs a lesson on class is understated. Foul language towards nursing, inappropriate conversations being held in open spaces, and overall doesn't seem to realize these aids are the bones of the building in many ways. As a prior healthcare worker any time I visit a loved one and witness the nursing being treated poorly its a huge red flag. When high nursing turnover happens it results in the loved ones suffering often. Id much rather send my loved one to a maybe less than fancy facility that shows a strong nursing family than one that looks pretty but has poor structure. Also on a side note-Ive noticed all staff wear dresses/skirts of some sort. As I realize they are shooting for a home feeling versus hospital enviorment, the larger picture is once again how comfortable are the aids trying to care for our loved ones wearing dress clothes? From my point the facility seems to be more concerned with image and less about the actual inner workings.
