This is a terrible place to take a loved one. If I could rate it 0 out of 5 stars, I would! My grandmother stayed there for several weeks after recovering from a minor stroke. The entire facility constantly reeked of urine. They repeatedly lost her, which is pretty amazing since she is wheel chair bound. Even though she was recovering from a stroke, she was still of able mind and positive spirits, but they continually gave her roommates that were on their deathbeds. She was there to witness two of those poor souls pass in the few short weeks that we were there. It really took a toll on her and she went into a slight depression. Then to top it off, she fell and fractured her leg and no one bothered to notify us or give her medical treatment. When we confronted them, they denied the severity of her injury. When we moved her to another facility, we were told that the damage was fairly extensive and that it should have received treatment immediately. Luckily, they were still able to help her and she is doing so much better now. The atmosphere was so negative at La Canada Care Center, I just do not understand how it could possibly be a place to go to recover or even live out the last days of my life. It only felt like death and sadness and I would never recommend this place to anyone.
