Both of my parents were residents in this nursing home. The food is terrible and the care is minimal. Although most of the nurses and aides are wonderful. They are terribly understaffed and therefore overworked. The facility is also very outdated (both in look and in p.t. equipment) compared to others. Best to choose another facility.
