When my mom was placed in this facility she was in very bad shape she didn’t even know where she was and couldn’t talk. With good therapy and excellent care from the nursing staff, she has really improved. She can sit up and talk and she’s more like herself again. My thanks to all the staff for taking such good care of my mom, God bless you all!
