My mother has been in this home for about a year. She has increasingly lost weight and the staff insists she can feed herself. I knew she couldn't. She was finally admitted into the hospital for malnutrition, dehydration, a UTI infection and sodium count was dangerously high. she is not being taken care of property. Her nose and ears were dirty and truly wish I could afford a private home. My overall rating is a one star

This place is aweful....

This place is aweful....
Details:

My great grandmother who was always a pretty plump lady her whole life also lost drastic weight as the other review here states. She looked dirty,unkept and was barely coherent because they gave her so many pills that she slept all day and every time my grandmother and I would arrive she would be in bed, not knowing what time of the day it was or what month and it just broke my heart to see her in such bad condition. I don't recommend this place to anyone. My great-grandmother even lost her mobility while in this place because she was in bed all day on lots of pain pills they were giving her to sleep and even for a headache!! Absolutely absurd to me. We took her out of there and now she lives with my Grandma and Papa. She's off all narcotic pain pills, she now walks on her walker by herself to the bathroom and down the halls which is a huge improvement from before! I'm just thankful she's doing so good now.
