Assisted Living Reviews for Harbor Oaks Elderly Care Home

July 29, 2013

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We visited Harbor Oaks and we could smell the bleach like as if they were trying to cover up the urine smell. The smell was horrible. The rooms were terrible. The furniture was falling apart. They have no nurses. I wouldn't put my dog in there.
