How to save money at a spa for seniors
A group of seniors and disabled people who work as a massage therapist at a Takoma Spa in Georgia have created a petition to have the spa removed from the state’s health plan.
The group says the Takoma spa has been providing the elderly with services for nearly 25 years and is a leader in the spa industry.
A number of people have come forward with concerns about the spa and its quality of care, including the director of the spa, which says it is committed to making a positive impact in the community.
“We do not believe that the spa has a place in the state of Georgia’s health care system,” the spa’s director, Karen Jones, said in a statement.
“The Takoma wellness facility has a history of poor care, a history that extends back to the early 1980s when it first opened.
It’s unacceptable to continue to have Takoma’s services and amenities as a member of our state’s comprehensive health care plan.
We have asked the Georgia Health Department to take swift action to ensure that this will not happen again.”
Takoma has received criticism from other spa companies, who say it has a reputation for poor quality care.
Several of the complaints, as well as concerns about Takoma, have been submitted to the Georgia Department of Human Resources, which will make a final decision.
