My relative was at Pointer Trail for some time. We were always kept updated by phone of any issues with my loved one's care. The management team were always accessible, and willing to discuss a problem right then and there. They even offered me their home phone numbers in case of emergency. The doctor visits every week and is more than willing to speak with family, the therapy staff were persistant and encouraging and there were many different activities offered. I was very pleased.

    This place really needs to step up on getting professionals. I am really not surprised the people this place goes through especially the higher ups. They want us to follow a care plan that they think we know and is listed in there system. Half the time the system is down or you have to go to another hall to get them done. The real problem is you do not want to do what is necessary in order to get real caring people for your residents you higher ups are just concerned about keeping your wallets fat it has nothing to do with resident care.
