Don`t waste your time at Claymore, Rude Director
Mary H
I toured the Claymore Senior center as I was interested in some of the programs they had to offer. I could not have been more disappointed. I found the Director, I think her name was Donna, rude and completely disinterested in myself as a prospective member. If she is going to deal with the public, she really should work on her people skills. Also I thought this was an active Senior Center not a nursing home.It seems they treat the members like small children. Again, I mainly interacted with the Director. The cleanliness of the facility also left a lot to be desired. Needless to say this one is off my list, mainly becuase of the rudeness of the Director Her rudeness, incompetence, and indifference were really disturbing.
She is NOT a very nice person

Pros: None

Cons: Rude Director, Dirty Facility, Limited Staff, Nursing Home Atmosphere
