Wouldn't keep a dog there. See Vermont Medicaid site. They were forced to return money to resident they owed. They lie, cheat and steal and I can prove it!

Response: It IS the GOVERNMENT as ROBBED, STEAL, AND LIE for you in a NURSING HOME, "ASSISTED LIVING", ETC. Hate to write, but take care of your parents and DON'T put any NURSING HOMES or "ASSISTED LIVING". I was a nurse and had a stroke. Been through "assisted living" almost 4 years ago AND I WOULD NOT EVEN LIVE WITH ASSISTED LIVING IN THESE FACULTIES IN THE STATE OF VERMONT!

Again, take care of your parents please!
