This place is horrible. The staff are liars, they will overmedicate your loved one so that they don’t have to deal with them, they have no compassion, and their lack of care will result in death of a person who’s physical health is pretty good, in less than 2 months of being there. How? Because they force tranquilizing drugs onto their residents by crushing it up in their food, and keeping them sedated or at least zoned out 24 hours a day. The director of nursing will lie to you about the events and activities and status of your loved one and when you ask for a Med list she will either avoid it and not get it to you untill you ask face to face and then the one she produces is weeks old. My loved one fell and broke his nose within 24 hours of being there, he had never done that before in his previous home. They are completely unorthodox and they represent and practice the perfect example of abuse and neglect.
