  • Do not move your family member here

    If I could give this place no stars I would. We moved our mother in there and she was healthy. Shortly after moving in she mysteriously died! They have had several questionable deaths one after another. If you love your family member please do not send them here. From my experience the caregivers did not care for my mom properly and the management and nurse are rude, don’t care what happens to your family member and should not be in charge of this place. This place should be shut down. I wish I would have looked up the state surveys before we decided on a place for our mom.

  • Don't

    There are very few actual Certified Nursing Assistants most are caregivers who are not Certified Nursing Assistants. They lack the necessary training needed to properly care for the residents. Don't rely on the state long term care site being current look at their survey book which they are required to have at the facility. They do not use Wander Guard or any other system that would prevent a resident from eloping which is common in residents with Alzheimer's/Dementia. Staff is another issue they constantly have new staff who don't know the residents and can't seem to keep staff. You always have to re-address the same issues over and over. Taking pride in your work and using common sense would go along ways. Meals and snacks need to be consistent each and every day. Aesthetically pleasing to the eye but has nothing to do with the quality of care being offered, Don't believe everything you are told.
