    Barb Byrd

    07 Dec 2018

    I think Walden Place management is not operating the facility with the best interests of their residents and family members in mind. My mother is currently being asked to pay for a room at this facility which my father vacated on November 7, 2018. He vacated the room via ambulance to Cortland hospital and subsequently passed away on Thanksgiving day. My mother is being billed for the use of the room through December 9, 2018. The family was never told we would be required to continue to pay for the room for another thirty days after leaving the room due to unforeseen medical issues and subsequent death. I feel this tactic is elder abuse perpetrated toward my 91 year old mother who is dealing with the death of her husband of 70 years.
