We have an elderly relative at this facility. The staffing is horrible and the place is nothing at all like their commercials claim on the television. Staff is friendly but there are not enough workers. The place is expensive for what they don't really offer. For the price they charge they should be offering better pay to attract more staff on behalf of the residents the owners pretend to care about. Very sad how these things are run today.

    Staff is friendly but understaffed. I went at 9:30 at night and discovered one person works all night by herself for the whole building. I hope no one falls as they have to call 911 for a lift assist. Considering it is a small town, I hope the ambulance isnt busy at that moment or that something doesnt happen to the one person on staff. I was suprized that all the doors were unlocked at 9:30 at night and anyone could walk in. Manager did confirm on the phone that they will charge people after they pass away without a 30 day notice they are going to die as I have read on other sites. Night employee told me that the owners are very cheap and mean to the staff and that they nickel and dime the residents for everything.

    The staff is nice but owners are CROOKS. Want to charge remainder of lease after people die. Only have one person working from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM. Take donations from family of deceased people and re-sell them to residents.
