Do not place your loved one in this facility. Management listens to your concerns but does nothing to address issues. Theft is rampant, food is terrible, rooms are rarely cleaned, your placed on hold indefinitely when you call. My family member was living there for less than a year and passed away due to lack of care. Doctors spend very little time due to having to see so many residents and aren't there very often. It's all about the money with five star senior living.

    Horribly managed place. Borderlines on criminal. Horrible staff. Horrible care. Horrible, horrible, horrible. Try it for yourself if you don't think so, but I wouldn't.

    I agree with the negative reports of this facility. Although many of the staff are nice and seemingly well meaning for some reason the care is just as bad as others describe. Call lights on for up to an hour, people moaning for help and being ignored, personal care done at a less than adequate level, many balls dropped including proper medication records and dispensing. The rehab section downstairs is nicer as the first reviewer said. That is because they get higher paying Medicare rehab patients. Upstairs is Medicaid long term care, an entirely different story. I also agree with what the last person said about Bob but he is now the former Director... although the new people (except the DON) are "nice" and again seem to care, the same old care problems are happening and my loved one is left in pain and unattended. On Medicaid with substantial health issues there are few choices that give truly good care.

    I have had nothing but good experiences with this facility. My mom went through rehabilitation and was able to go home even when her doctor had no hope. This is a small but comfortable facility.

    If you have a LOVED one that is in need of Rehabilitation I hear that this place is the best for physical and occupational therapy. Unfornatly the care my grandmother recieved outside of the therapy was a nightmare. I personally witnessed a nurse be very rude and sarcastic to two residents when they asked for their nighttime meds. My grandmothers call light was on for 10+ minutes when she had to use the restroom. After a meal the C.N.A. pushed her wheelchair in the middle of her room and left here there for an hour with her call light on the floor across the room. The supervisors and head nurses were all very nice and seemed like they wanted to fix the problems but the lack of care and compassion and promptness from the people that directly care for the patients is going to kill someone someday if they haven't already. Stay far far away from this place if you want good ADL care for your loved one!!

    Response: have you found a better place that takes Medicaid?
