02/14/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Long term facility care is good although there is only staffed by nursing assistants. Rooms are adequate but not cleaned well regularly. Food is mediocre and they seem to run out of staples and sometimes dont have enough meals on hand for all residents.

    05/15/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: I had my loved one at this facility. The building and rooms were cleaned daily and as needed. The staff were friendly and if they didn't know an answer they would find someone who would. Everyone has the occasional bad experience but if you want to avoid that, choose Caretel.

    03/27/2013 An Current/Past Resident Writes: My husband was a patient there for 6 weeks. We waited for call lights to be answered. We had to tell them when his portable oxygen needed to be changed since no one ever checked it. He has COPD and a mandatory order for a bypap machine to be used at night was only followed through when they remembered to put it on him. The rooms were not cleaned very often. I one told a nurse that he was quite congested and coughing only to be told that she was not his nurse and that I would have to go find his. I complained to the administrator about all of this but only after my husband was taken to the hospital and placed on a respirator for over a week. There is no communication between the nursing staff at all. It is a beautiful place on the outside is all I can say about it.
