Response: I was reading your post about the Barstow Veterans Home. you sad they destroyed your loved one and I see it has a 5 star rating. My dad is a WWll Veteran who lives with us. He still drives short distances so he would only need assisted living to help put his hearing aides and batteries in. He gets dressed, walks good, but needs help remembering to take his vitamins. He takes no pharmaceuticals. He is very easy going and easy to live with but my husband is almost 60, Im 55 and he wants to travel and we cant do anything because of my dad. I love him with all my heart and want the best for him. Can you tell me why you gave it such a low rating? thank you so much.
