Details:

My grandmother was a resident at this facilty until she passed away. The care she recieved while she was a resident there was outstanding. The staff treated her with the utmost respect and diginity and she was always clean and well cared for. When she got to the point she could not express her needs and wants the staff were able to anticipate them and carry them out. I knew she was safe and in good hands.I would highly recommend this facility to anyone looking for short term or long term placement. What happened to this facility last year was very unfortunate and could easily happen to any facilty.
