There was a incident at Sandalwood Manor. My family member was giving a unprescribed pill during the night landing her in the hospital. This sped up her medical condition causing her to die within months. Sandalwood then pointed the finger at my family as the ones who gave her the pill. My family wasn't around at the time of the incident. Beware of this facility.

I can't say enough about the wonderful care my dad received at Sandalwood. He was there for the last month of his life. All of the people who cared for him were so respectful, professional, and caring. They worked so well with our hospice provider, and comforted our family in so many ways. I highly recommend this facility.
