  • A formal anonymous complaint was made to AHCA (state) in early 2015 against Edwinola for neglect of the residents. A response to the complaint was received in March 2015. You will never believe there findings.
    The Edwinola was in compliance. LOL. If they were so compliant, then how did these people die and another elope for 7 hours?

  • All of you people are saying this is sad, if this were to be a younger male, let’s say 20 you guys would be bashing on him calling him a worthless pos or a scumbag. I’m not trying to defend anyone but just because this guy Is old doesn’t mean anything, he still knew what he was doing and I’m tired of people saying things like that.

  • I’ve heard horrible things about other facilities like that in other towns too. Some too hard to believe sometimes, but they all came from reliable sources. God help these people that have to live in these conditions.

  • He should have never been in a assisted living facility. It really saddens me how some people with mental issues are placed in there and need to be in mental hospitals. I’ve worked in the assisted facilities and saw this many times. Shame on the facility for being GREEDY and wanting that few extra bucks!!! Shame on the State or Family for PAYING it!!!!

    I would really like to know the mental state of this patient and his BACKGROUND .
