Mom is a very go-getter. She wants to do even more with therapy, and they gave her two sessions today! Today, she had chicken Chicken a la King at mealtime, or something fancy like that - anyway, she loved it! The building is cold and their temperature is very regulated. Other than that, it's good. It seems very clean to me.

My dad has been happy so far. However he selected certain meals and he did not receive them because they were out of them.

Everybody was really wonderful. My mother liked everyone and they were all very helpful. My mother said all of the staff was really great. It would be better if they tried to put people together as roommates in a way that made sense. I asked them to not do a test, but the nurse practitioner ordered it. They ordered an expensive medical test that was not necessary.

The food was good. The staff was all excellent and professional. They were right on it. The nurses were very good. They were right on point and constantly professional. I left there today and they gave me excellent explanations. The therapy was excellent, though it could have been more intense.

She likes it and has seemed to adjust to the change. They are very friendly! It's very clean, I am very impressed. I asked my loved one if she likes the food, and she says yes. They answer all my questions.

They are doing a wonderful job with being nice and attentive. She is getting better and they are helping her to get better. They are wonderful. I like them all and they are wonderful. My mother is terrible and I have not had the food. It is institutional food. They are all equally good and anytime I call they are good about getting information to me.

They have just been good. We met with the therapist and they were really good. When he calls they come in and help him. They were really good. The main nurse is pretty nice. All of them have been really friendly. The hallways and room were clean.

They've been good about letting me know about my concerns. I have to go and tell them to clean up the bathroom and had to clean my father's room.

A 5++ ! The people that work in the therapy department are very cheerful and very helpful. They are here when you need them. Everyone is friendly. It's extremely clean but the food is terrible. I know they outsource, but there is food that is brought in that is not fit to eat. They are very informative. The nursing and the physical therapy are right on top of telling me where I am in my progress.
