08/02/2012 An Interested Visitor Writes: could not get staff to call me back about placing someone there. On 7 different occasions went to get information could not find any staff to help but was allowed to wander through each time unchallenged. Not allowed to see room where my family member was to be placed nor the activity or dining room. Then the staff was offended that my family was not placed there.

02/07/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: The Mountain Towers facility is a poorly ran place to stay. They do have some excellent, caring staff on duty, but you can feel the tension both by employees and residents. Don't even try to get help for there director, as he is one of the most uncaring, rude people that I have met there. He openly treats the staff terrible. We have heard him curse staff out by yelling down the hallways. Unbelievable.

03/25/2011 An OurParents User Writes: Staff was simply overwhelmed. The facility outside was not really kept well. Always trash and debris around outside. Once you walked inside, very clean, very well kept. Atmosphere was of crisis and not comfort. No smiles, no welcomes. It appears the inside was well kept, but outside very nasty and no curb appeal. Inside nice. Floors and walls clean, staff on top of game as far as cleaning and painting . No sign of any leadership.
