My wife suffers from Alzheimer's Disease. During respite care she stayed at premises which were very expensive, with lots of facilities and place to roam, but the staff to patient ratio seemed poor. One doesn't necessarily get the best treatment going expensive. "Hillcrest" is a small establishment with a high staff to patient ratio! Patients are cared for irrespective of their social background. It covers for private and supported funding.
