    My mother had been living here for about a year when we were told they would no longer accept Medicare and she had 45 days to vacate. This entire process has been made much worse due to the lack of help from the staff. Once the decision was made, my mother’s care dropped. She was left with expired food in her refrigerator, clothing dumped on the floor and went over a week without a shower. Records were not sent to her new home after weeks of asking and promises made. The staff lied, the supervisors lied and ultimately I had to do the “nurses to nurse” interview after we were told it would absolutely be done within the hour. The moving process is restricted to after hours and the fee we paid to move my mother in one year ago is not being refunded. A fee that the new facility also requires. Once the transition to Elance occurred, we were no longer valuable. I can not image how a resident without family close by could possibly manage this.
