The ladies who come in to feed my mother have been very kind and I couldn't ask for better people. The CNA's with the exception of one young man act burdened by our asking for help. The head nurse both night and day are the most uncaring rude people to the family that I have ever met. We are at a time when we are facing her death in the next few days. They are not comforting and do not try to answer our questions and if they do it is only with a smart attitude like we are stupid. At this point we are seriously considering bring her home with hospice. Let me say the the lady that help us with administration has been very kind and thoughtful, but this is not a place you want your loved one to go for there passing.

A year ago this place was the best, now it is really the worst. The help is overworked and no one has time for the residents. If you love your family, don't bring them here. I am getting my mother in somewhere else. Even most of the staff has bailed out

My loved one has not been fed, been left in a dirty dipper on multiple occasions, is rarely changed and is never moved. The nursing staff is horrible and doesn't do anything. It was recommended from those who used it in the past, but is sure has changed.

Beth with Brakebill called me the next day after I requested more information. She was very pleasant and helpful about the service they offered.
