05/27/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My family members toilet had overflowed all over the bathroom floor and out into the room. We told various staff members at least 3 times about it. They relayed the message to housekeeping. During the 1.5 hours we were there, housekeeping NEVER came :\

03/23/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My mother and father lived in one of the six plexes until my father died. During this time they had live in care givers and enjoyed their lives in the company of neighbors and gardening in the community garden while they were able.
The problem we experienced was when my mother had to be in the nursing home section for awhile. There were several things that should have been seen to or prevented. My mother fell out of bed and lay there for perhaps an hour. Her bed linens were left wet for sometimes as long as one complete shift. Her medications were not noticed when they fell onto the bed. Very spotty skilled care.
