    Been there to visit my grandmother twice on the past few weeks. Some of the staff are friendly and helpful but many don't care, don't want to be there and complain about it openly. There are not enough aids on staff and they are not well organized. When I was there almost all of the Alzheimer's patients were in the activity room with one aid. When she wasn't looking, the patient next to me in a wheelchair was tring to get up out of her chair. I called her over because she was about to fall out of the wheelchair. The aid helped her to the floor just in time. The patient was soaking wet in urine and had a full diaper. The nurse and two aids were scurrying around confused trying to find a belt, equipment and arguing about why her diaper hadn't been changed in so long. The whole place wreaked of urine. Finally they got her back in her wheelchair and took her to get cleaned up. No one ever cleaned the floor with urine and feces that leaked from her pants. The entire place is extremely insanitary as all of the patients wear diapers that do not get changed often enough, and they all have diarrhea.

    If you are over fifty-five and are looking for a more comfortable, enjoyable, and convenient way of life, modern-day senior living may be exactly the thing for you! Senior living is two things: a new kind of housing and a new way of life. When you've grown weary of maintaining the yard, repairing the appliances, and struggling with the day-in, day-out cleaning and upkeep of your home, Senior living is a wide, welcoming avenue worthy of exploration. There's independent living, where you take care of yourself (minus only the cooking and housekeeping), to more intense forms of compassionate assistance, such as in nursing or memory care, available around-the-clock. You are encouraged to examine the many styles of senior living and consider a new, convenient way of life.
