My mother in law was put here in skilled nursing after a hospital stay. She seemed to be doing well until her skilled nursing stay ended. They did not bathe her or keep her room clean. I found her soiled many times and had to ask to have her cleaned up. They bring them out of their rooms and sit them at the nurses station. They do not change them after they eat. I even witnessed them changing her and not bothering to change her clothes that were visibly soiled. One time we found her at 2:00 in the afternoon in a hospital gown. They were dumbfounded and said that she had just come from the dining area. She had not been cleaned up at all for the day. She became reclusive and irritable. I had a very hard time with communication. When we finally found her a new home they decided to pack up her room and half of her belongings were lost. 5 brand new outfits she received for Christmas seemed to have walked away. They placed child locks on her cabinets so I know that she did not have access to them. Please do not put your loved one at this facility. I am heartbroken that the people there are treated this way.

Response: I think you left out a lot of details but anyway i hope you are happy with where she is now.

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.
