Beware of memory care unit! Blaire House hires and retains staff members who are known to be abusive to residents! I have a loved-one who was abused there and we know that this happened there before. Don't take a chance!!!

This place was a waste of money and time for the care they provided for my relative. His wife finally realized he was going down hill there and moved him to a different facility and he is doing better .
