My mother is currently in F.V. Not as wonderful as one would believe. Short staffed. Not responsive to patient needs, dis-organized, and the memory-care unit is totally dysfunctional. "Karen" that works in Red Pine is an unhappy employee that should be gone.
I wouldn't want her to care for my dog much less a loved one. A total mess. Beware. Seriously.
