This facility has provided care to 4 of my family members over the last 5 years. I find the staff to be very caring and dedicated. I am given updates frequently and have never had any concerns regarding the care my relatives received. I have one family member currently in this center, they are happy and well cared for.

    Not what I expected from a nursing home. I thought my friend would be in skilled hands and taken care of better than I could. In three months she has fallen and gotten sores. The sores have not be treated properly to heal them. It is $1000. higher priced then a county nursing home without the quality to go with it. It seems to be understaffed. Nurse call lights and alarms go off for long periods of time without anyone answering them. The staff uses sedative drugs to deal with patients instead of skill. They lack training in my opinion.

    The person that was admitted to this facility was an out patient from simple surgery at a reputable hospital .
    The person was in worse condition after hospital discharge and under the care at this facility was NOT taken care of. Daily clothing was not changed. The patient was way over medicated and treated for conditions that they didn’t have a history of. I would not recommend this facility for any loved one .

    Response: my review reflex yours.
