Our residents welfare is obviously of paramount importance. An integral part of our facility is to oversee and control the use prescribed prescription medication should our residents need this. Our trained staff work closely with a variety of health care workers including, doctors, dentists, probation and mental health workers to ensure that the needs of the individual resident are met fully and completely.
