There are some housekeeping issues I would like to see addressed. It took them a while to wash my loved one's sheets. And now two of her pillows are missing. Sometimes her laundry is not washed. So I'm not sure about the housekeeping. But the staff in general are very friendly. They keep up with her hygiene and are good about giving her baths and washing her hair. So far so good with that. She says the food is good. They have activities - things like games, scenic rides twice a week, etc. Overall I would recommend the place and am very impressed with it.
