    Response: Yes, I agree with you my mother was there 1 month and she is a diabetic. This nursing care provider did not give her meds for 10 days and she was hospitalized. Looks good as far as appearance, but if you love your friend or family member...keep looking.

    Response: I visited this facility and was appalled at the apparent fire hazard of electrical outlet, blackened like it had caught fire. I also felt like I needed a bath when I left the place. Equipment was very old, beds circa 1925, with thin hand cranks.

    Response: My loved one has been at this facility for years. The facility is clean, the staff is freidndly and administration is responsive.
