08/16/2015 An Interested Visitor Writes: My mom was for about 3 1/2 weeks in 2014 before she passed and the staff on the west wing were great but at the same time family was always there. Many of the aides that worked with my mom were very understanding to our concern of my mom's care and always always did their best to make sure mom was comfortable. However, the administration staff wanted to discharge mom and did not seem to all be on the same page, not even with the doctor. Then to put the icing on the cake they wanted us to use mom's house to pay for her stay and kept inquiring about the money in her bank account. But recently I heard the Admistrator had embezzled money from the Carrington.
e money she had in the bank
