I can not even elaborate the rude, unkept, unturned manner my family member lived in this facility. When it comes to the weekend forget it., You can see all the staff what must be the lounge downstairs? If they are all there who is up stairs minding my family? How many times I am told my family slid to the floor? Come on (cover UP). Maggots in the eye from poor wound care, if a resident refuses? then report it don't wait? A woman died in the closet? on the lock down floor? And the wander gaurds help how? Told my dying family and billed for therapy? what therapy? After leaving friday and coming in Saturday my mother in same position? Take a tour when least expected to see what really goes on.
