This place is unsafe, I worked here fr two years and saw people fall and die as a result of no monitoring. I have seen people being overdosed on psychotropic medications and sent to the hospital. The place is dirty and smelly and public health should close this place down. The administrator and owner don't care about anything but saving money. They have been raided by the Department of Justice for abuse violations. I have seen patients with bruises and cuts and scrapes from abuse.

Response: I am helping a friend who saw your post and would like to talk to you about what you witnessed at the home. Please write me at Thank you.
