    08/17/2011  -  An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes:

    I do not understand why this facility is listed under Alzheimer's care, as no part of it is a secure, locked care unit. My mother had to move from here because she tried to elope one time from Assisted Living. They said they could not care for anyone who wandered excessively around the facility, and definitely not anyone who might try to exit. The only other possibility there was skilled nursing/rehab, which they also said was not appropriate for Alzheimer's care because it was not a secure facility either.
    And I will add that during my mother's one stay (for rehab after a hospitalization) on their skilled nursing floor, the care was abysmal. They never even created a sign out page for her in their book, so anyone could (and did) take her on the elevator and off the floor, and/or out of the building. Several family members did this, passing right in front of the nurses's station/front desk, with no one ever questioning us. And they definitely did not know who was family and who was not.



    04/08/2011  -  An OurParents User Writes:

    The Staff and nurses are excellent and they treat everyone with such compassion and great care. They are never too busy to attend to the needs of the residents.



    10/26/2009  -  An OurParents User Writes:

    Social services department was extremely helpful in describing services available and providing additional resources. They could not meet the needs for my father, but provided excellent guidance.
