    Review submitted by Elizabeth a sad and unhappy widow on 09/16/2013

    The food is very starchy. The cereal is made with water and the residents are given artificial cream to pour over the thick gooey mess that they call cereal. There are no fresh fruits or vegetables. The food is salty and there is greasy bacon and sausage at breakfast, There is no whole wheat bread. It takes forever to get help when a resident presses the button for help. There can are too few certified nursing aides and they have to many patients to care for. Substandard care is provided. My biggest complaint is with the physical and occupational therapists. They aren't concerned about the patients. They talk and joke among themselves. They make no effort to encourage the patient to try the exercises to get better. They are the worst and should all be fired. I reported Emeritus, Carmel Valley, to the 5 agencies listed in the UT San Diego Sept.8, 2013 news article on the abuses of nursing homes.
