05/26/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: This nursing home is a horrible place. My Father was in this facility when he passed away. He had diabetes, and the facility was extremely lax in keeping a check on his blood sugar. He passed away during the night from a drop in blood sugar. We heavily suspect that his sugar was never checked during that night. The staff always seemed more interested in congregating around the nurse's station to socialize than in taking care of the residents. I have seen my Dad wait an hour after pushing the call button for assistance. He would have never gotten it had there not been a family member there to go and get a staff member and walk with them back to the room. The building itself is fairly nice, and fairly well decorated. No complaints there. The level of care, however, is severely lacking. If you have a choice, select another facility for your loved one. If you don't, make sure you are there as often as possible to make sure your loved one gets the care they need. You have to demand it, or it won't happen.
