    • Facility

    Facility is a little on the expensive side compared to other local facilities. The facility can become overwhelming for those residents with dementia, because there are a lot of rooms and it may be difficult for residents to navigate through. The facility is also extremely short-staffed. There were not enough staff members attending to each individual resident. Staff members sometimes did the bare minimum or simply were looking to punch in and punch out. The menu options are also not very appetizing or appealing. There isn't much of a variety present and not enough healthy options.
