I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident
My mother was there for several months. The place is set up to allow outsiders to come in and sell your loved one services without informing the family. My mother is easily influenced as are a lot of seniors. The staff does not clean apartments. The food is not good unless it is a common visiting time. They have been sued several times, but the parent company is huge and has lots of funds. When she first went there, we used their nurse practitioner because she was coming from out of state. This proved to be a major problem as she changed all her meds in the first three weeks without telling the family, even after we told her that her doctor in her home state did not recommend certain meds. She also changed all her regular meds for no reason (such as replacing blood pressure meds with another when the original was working fine), When I found her a local doctor and discontinued the NP, the nurse on staff told her that her doctor was not good. The director told me that "I was a lot more involved in her care than most families" which is what they do not want. There is a lot more, I could write pages. DO NOT SEND YOUR LOVED ONE THERE
