    This is a wonderful facility! Very caring and kind. Our Dad has lived here for over a year now and while he complains about the food because he has DM, and high BP, his health in his 80’s has never been better. The place is kept spotlessly clean. They encourage family involvement and until COVID hit, you could visit most anytime you’d like. They’ve helped our family out tremendously by caring for our Dad, and we can’t thank them enough.

    This was the worst case of not caring I have seen. I don't know if Covid has some part in it ot that my husband cant communicate well and they thought he would not be able to talk about it. But I know him and I don't have a doubt that he wasn't cared for properly. Never had his glasses or hearing aids in the morning. He was dirty and had the same shirts on every time I saw him. Came home missing a hand crafted quilt, several shirts and more. Had to have them check on the quarantine room for his shower stool and walker. They were never transferred to his other room. Who knows where his stuff went. And had a very high turnover in employees that I could tell.

    My dad passed just four months after being here. He was paralyzed and idk they ever turned/moved him or put his food where he could get it. I know we would be there for hours and noone would know that we were there because noone came by to check on him. He went down fast in those 4 monthsMy dad lost a total of 30lbs in the 4 months he was alive in this place my dad basically starved to death at the hands of this places staff. Or was it infection from the bed sores as a result of not being moved or turned

    It's a nice place but the staff is terrible. The food is terrible also. The staff is not properly trained and they are too lazy to do their job.My dogs get better care at the veterinarian office. They rather put you in a diaper than help someone to the toilet or potty chair. The staff does not have knowledge of what equipment is on hand. They do not have enough supplies to keep each patient supplied to wash up or clean them. It just opened and needs to be under new management. I would give it 0 stars if possible.

    Do not put your loved ones here. I admitted my father who had been under my care for the past 10 months into this home. For the past five months my father has had nausea and refuse to eat every meal and I had to sit next to him and Coach him on everybody and make sure he got fed so he wouldn't wither away and die. When they took him if they told me they would take care of him when he refused to eat as he always did they gave they didn't try to feed them they didn't try to coerce or convince him they just gave up. He died hungry earlier today, shortly after I came in to confront them about his feeding and to coach him into a meal. They felt I was rude and since I didn't have power attorney they wouldn't let me take him home to make sure he had the care he needed. My sister who has power of attorney told them oh just call the police. They didn't let me go into try and feed my father even though at that point I had regain composure after the initial confrontation and was calm they didn't even let me go in and see him but they barred me from coming in when the nurses were I guess changing his diaper for "privacy".I've changed this man's diapers a hundred times it wasn't privacy for me they just didn't want me to see how they were treating him. I heard him caterwauling from outside the door. They kick me out shortly after and I never even got a chance to see him one last time before they starved him to death. If you care about your loved ones keep them away from this place
