Gracious Care Recovery Solutions makes every attempt to practice integrity and fair treatment in all our affairs. Occasionally, an individual may feel we have room to improve or may disagree with one or more of our policies. In this event, we have set in place the following policy for grievances:

If a resident feels they have been treated unfairly or is requesting a change or addendum to a policy, the resident can fill out a grievance form.
