  • Meals & Nutrition
  • It was a clean, well taken care of place, with caring, knowledgable staff. They should not accept patients with mental health issues as they are not staffed for this. I didn't have a lot of contact with anyone other than my friend, but, while it was a difficult journey for her, she liked being there most of the time.
