issue with the refrigerator

At Clarewood House there was an issue with the refrigerator. It was warm and his food went bad. I e-mailed them a couple of times and the week after he moved in the refrigerator still wasn't cold. I went to visist him and he seemed weak so we got him in the hospital. He is now in rehab.The staff do call anytime there is a little fall or anything like that. They do communicate with me any time there is an issue which I appreciate. They just need to fix his refrigerator.

Staff seems great and public areas are beautiful. Neighborhood is rough and actual apartments just OK.

Clarewood House Amy Spring...

Clarewood House Amy Springer was nice and presented well. Best brochure Nice facility. all levels of care Is Trust in case people run out of money. Have chapel. Nice dining area and good food. Amy did not have any rooms available for demoing, so we could only see the size of them. Nothing was noteworthy in the two rooms we saw. Galvanized (?) water pipes were being replaced on floors, so construction didn't help presentation. $265/month for 1 meal/day. Begonia (400 sq ft) $1045 Wysteria (600 sq ft) $1375 One-time $2500 security fee. Have note for 25 $500 fee for small pet.

Older Crowd

I looked at them and they were nice but the people there were older. I'm not that old, unfortunately, so I don't think I would fit in because of my age.
