04/29/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My Mother was in Dorothy Love to stabilize her medication and for rehab. She was well taken care of and when her meds were changed or any change in condition, we were notified. We took Mom back home in much better health then when she went in. And the staff already miss her!

08/29/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Nurses could be more involved in the direct care of the residents rather than searching high and low for nurse techs to do simple things, seems that nurses are sitting in their office area a good bit of the time.

10/15/2010 An OurParents User Writes: I would NOT recommend this facility. There are many citations that have been covered up by administration as if they never occured. Staff that are abusive to residents are abundant, even after brought to the attention of the director of nursing. Retaliation is the worst. Staff development is not only frowned upon but also punished. Nurses have been witnessed hastening residents deaths by overmedicating with Morphine when not appropriate. Do your homework before checking into this facility. The name, size, and the looks are very deceptive.

Response: Have heard nothing positive at all about this nursing home, just from word of mouth and after reading this I would NEVER place a loved one here
