I have worked for this company and do not anymore as I have seen all the mistreatment of both the residence and staff is. They give the wrong dose of medication or you may get someone else's. If they get the right medication they don't make sure they are taken. There are only 2 staff for all residents. The place is so filthy and stinks. The ED does not care about anyone but herself, as far as the nurse she just sits back and lets everyone else do her job and always takes mini vacations all the time. As for the kitchen well that is another story it should be torn down as its so dirty in there. Honestly really bad behind the fridges. Plus when they roll the silverware they never wash there hands nor do they wear gloves. Worst place to be ever!!!

Management doesn't care about residents or staff,the staff who does care gets crapped on and the rest sit around. Problems are not addressed. Doing a remodel of facility and thats all management cares about. Nurse is a joke,she passes her responsibilities off to the staff n sits in her office. Calls go unanswered,food is a joke,alot of soup and sandwiches are served. If your sleeping they won't wake you to eat and the staff can't get anything for those who are hungry from missing their meal because everything in kitchen is locked up. Certain residents are wearing same clothes with food stains day after day. Activity ma king cookies, she pulls them out of the freezer onto a pan and bakes them, residents are not involvedat all. Cheaper than a nursing home, not. They charge you for everything. Beware they will say what they have to, to get you in. Ask to see other rooms besides the model rooms, because they are not kept clean and smell. Look at the residents,ask them questions

Only 2 people on staff after 8pm, and approx 55-60 residents. They walk right into room all the time (they may or may not knock first).

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!! It is a bad place to live. They used to be a licensed facility, but that changed in October of 2010 and they continue to operate without a license and failed to inform residents of the licensure change. They continued to bill dad's long term care insurance as a licensed facility, too, even after the licensure change. That to me is fraud!!! STAY AWAY!
The care if horrible...with 2 workers per 40+ residents they cannot possibly help all of those that need help..such as getting ready for bed, taking meds, etc. My mom lived there for 2 years and I am so thankful we were able to move her to a very loving, kind facility. My mom feels like Cinderalla now instead of an ugly step sister.
We had the ALF stop showering her and dad and I would do it because dad was paying for showers and they wouldn't get done, even though the director at the time was telling me she showered mom herself. Well, she didn't like the fact that I purposely put wrapped soap in mom's shower to see if she was getting her showers or not...when the soap remained wrapped and I questioned her about it, her reply was "I DON'T LIKE BEING SET UP".
STAY AWAY ...Let's see, definately do not move in there if you have dementia or alzheimers because they really don't care about you if you have that. Sometimes mom wouldn't go down to eat and sometimes she would. If they just came to her room and told her dinner was in 15 minutes, she would go hungry because she couldn't remember she was just told it was dinnertime. Let's's toenails didn't get cut for 3 months and she got an infection in her toe. She fell one time and didn't see a doctor for 10 days after that and then it was another 10 days before she had x-rays. She fell another time, too, and my dad found her locked in her room yelling for help! Don't know how long she'd been on the floor that time.
The directors there think they know all about alzheimer's and how to treat people, when in fact they don't. The nurse is very snippy if you ask her something and she doesn't provide any type of care to people, because they are unlicensed and cannot provide any type of medical basically she does nothing!
I did find out that all of the Assisted Living Concepts facilities in Michigan..The Sojourner House in Kalamazoo and Mason or Masonville Home in Coldwater and Bowman House were all going to lose their license from the state when they instead signed on with an outside food provider, thus they were allowed to stay open without a license. So there are no state inspections, no fire inspections, no ombudsman to help you...nothing if you have problems.My dad asked on April 14 for copies of mom's records and he is her guardian. The director told him on May 6 that her records were sent to corporate office and that dad would have to request those records in writing. The VP over the region said that after the request was turned in, it would be sent to the corporate attorney and it was up to the corporate attorney to decide which copies dad could have...NOT, DON"T THINK is mom's guardian and is entitled to those records. But, it is now May 20 and he still has not gotten them. STAY AWAY from this place...there are hardly any activities to keep you busy and the one's there are are pretty lame. When mom first moved there LEMONADE was considered an, how exciting is that! They moved the small tv from the living area into the library which holds about 6 people, so that's how many can watch tv at one time. The parking lot is icy in the wintertime and rarely gets plowed. The courtyard is full of weeds in the summertime or the grass is brown. The maintenance man also works for the school, so if you have a problem with something, you have to wait until school is out to get it fixed. STAY AWAY!
