It'd be informative if they'd publicize their admission, i.e.rating thresholds, and then discharge criteria. I do not mean the pat response, 'oh, when they've met their goals.' I do not care how beautiful it is.Is it a SAFE holding tank for the morticians.

You are terrible!!! The people who work in Health Centers deserve a little credit. There is too much to include everything in one aticle and when you have questions then look up what you want to know or go visit and see for yourself.

Jim OConnor- RUDE - Finally a nice project for elderly in Schdy BEAUTY and COMFORT DOES MATTER ! Have you ever been to the old Glendridge nursing home? I used to go there to visit my paralyzed grandmother-and cried when I was forced to leave her there. I was only 13 at the time and had no control over her care or location- But the memory of why that place needed to be so cold and ugly and scary will stay with me forever. Our elderly and disabled especially deserve beauty and comfort and an environment fosters well being not makes you feel like you rather die then be there.
Capital Living ! Thank you for your forward and common sense thinking.
