By trust your instinct

I visited this facility

My Mom has been here close to two years. If I had my way, she would have been gone a long ago. The facility is short staffed. The employees are overwhelmed and have given up. Very rarely will I see the same people on my weekly visits. There are times when there were no staff in the building. My mom is in building 8. Don't put your loved ones here.

I visited this facility

I placed my mom there on the fall and now I'm desperate to move her six months later. Wish I could give zero stars. 1.. I have found stray pills in the room at least five times, including oxycodone which she does not take. They didn't give her two of her meds in March, and withheld another in April (could have been longer.) I haven't been able to get those medical records. More than $1,000 worth of her clothes and belongings have disappeared and they have lied about looking for and finding them. I went in a day after I was told three things had been found and none were there. None of the staff had seen them or had even been asked to look for them. They don't communicate with each other from one shift to the next. Mom went to the emergency room yesterday but today's workers didn't know! They do not help her maintain personal hygiene or make sure she changes her clothing every day. Today she was dressed in the same outfit for at least the third consecutive day. She also had her pajamas on underneath. She had no depends or panties on and her pants were filthy. She was wearing the same bra and socks for several days. Her hair is rarely combed and her clothes are often dirty. Her bed is never made up properly- no sheets, just a mattress pad and lightweight blanket. Not the quilt we bought before she went in.

Awful place. Regret ever placing my loved one here. Terrible care, thoughtless staff, sad place.
