User Reviews

Fengling talks a very good game when you meet her, but she cannot provide the services she claims she can. She was charging resident's extra for taking them to the bank or for haircuts. She said she had to be nicer to one resident because she received the most county benefits for him, so he would get to choose what the rest of them did. I walked in on her speaking to another resident about my family member's medical history and commenting about his financial situation. No confidentiality. Several residents moved in and out. She has been cited and fined and sued for her behaviors. She has limited grasp of mental health or addiction. This is not a good placement for any person who wanders or may have aggressive behaviors. Several times I visited and she would be crying.
