Details:

Regretfully my husband is still there. Therapy stinks. The food for the most part is horrible. The residents have been given roast beef that is actually for sandwiches with gravy on it. The same with the turkey. Most of the time the alternate is hamburger with gravy on it. No bread Coffee so weak you could use it for dishwater. The same with Ice tea and lemon aid. Forget getting eggs. Unless you consider that liquid crap eggs. All of the good staff has either quit or been fired just within the past few weeks.These are the people who realy cared about the residents. If I could take my husband out of there and bring him home I would. I regret ever having placed him there.
