07/08/2011 An Current/Past Employee Writes: It was a fabulous nursing home until recent administrator change occurred.

Response: Isn't she awful? The worst!

Response: the kitchen supervisor is the rudest person I know!!! her name is Cindy she gave my father salt when in fact he is NOT allowed to consume salt after I had already informed her of such. To top it off after confirming she's not even licensed to make those decisions. I will definitely be calling the state.
