    Although many of the staff is warm and friendly, the place often seems understaffed and smells like urine. Many of the amenities listed in their website (phone, wifi, hair dryer, electric beds, secure outdoor patio, community trips, cooking and baking groups, gardening and outdoor activities, outings to local restaurants) don't exist.

In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.
