My father was at Andorra Woods Healthcare Center for short term care after a fall landed him in the hospital. I was not sure about having him there because of the reviews I have seen, but I am happy to say his experience was very positive and he is back home again and self-sufficient. I understand that the center has a new ownership and a new administrative and nursing team. I was pleasantly surprised with the attention and care my father received.
