We have worked closely with the family and local law enforcement to ensure they have all the facts.  We follow stringent measures when hiring employees, including background checks.  This incident does not reflect the quality and genuine care provided by our employees.  We believe they do an outstanding job caring for our residents and looking out for their well-being.  We have also reached out to the state agency that monitors our industry and will continue to work closely with them, the family, and local authorities until this matter is concluded.”
