User Reviews

The front line staff here are terrific, but the overall administration is poor. My mom lived here for two years. For the time she was on the moderate dementia ward, her care was fine and the place was clean and had many good activities. However, when the time came to move her to the area with more severe dementia, it was terrible. There were not adequate service people in attendance, diarrhea constantly went around the ward, and there was not adequate supervision of people who could not fare for themselves. I used to try to help some of the residents when I was visiting my mom. I could be there for several hours and not one aid ever went by her door or came down the hall to check on people. When I needed to find an attendant, I would have to go to the dining hall or the office and then sometimes couldn't find anyone to come and help. We finally moved her out to a place where she could be properly attended to.


Response: ditto!

Response: I'd like to know where you took your mother.
