12 Mar 2019

Do not put your loved one in this facility. My father was a resident for 2 1/2 years before he passed. To start, we didn't know until recently that their license application was rejected by the state and, therefore, have been operating under a temporary license in hopes that they will be approved. The last we heard, it was unlikely to happen. Although we can't confirm that it was staff members, someone kept stealing my fathers stuff (phone charges, TV remote, money, toiletries, etc). The staff repeatedly consumed his store bought food without asking and would use his living room as if it were there personal breakroom while he was confined to this bedroom. If you look them up, there are multiple complaints with the state so please do your homework and "buyer beware" if you choose to put your loved one there!
