I visited this facility

My parents are staying in Eskaton. We are not happy about it, but it is too late because they don't have enough money to go anywhere else. One of them was already in the independent living and then transitioned into the assisted living. It is clean and beautiful. The facility is pretty good, but their whole setup of selling a membership is very unfair and unkind to clients who aren't millionaires. When my parent made the transition to assisted living, they told us that they could have everything moved out by the end of the month, so we rushed, and then later they told us, "Well, we can't. He still has to pay the double rent for 60 days." They can't sell it to another client. So we rushed and lost track of a lot of things because they told us we would save him some money by hurrying, and now they forced 60 more days. My parents lost certain things and a lot of money, and they didn't understand that. In fact, we had friends who took a lawyer with them when they signed the contract, and the lawyer said, "Well, I understand it, and yes it is legal, but nobody who is not a lawyer or any potential client that comes in, they are not going to understand that they are throwing away potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars." Everything in the contract was apparently legally worded but not in plain English. The care staff is very nice, very cordial, and very friendly, but they are not good at self-initiating the actual assistance in the daily living skills that he needs assistance with.
