"Helped a bit!"

The food was a bit disappointing in 2015, the kind of stuff I make for myself.

The food in 2002 was impossible to beat.

Anyone who's ever been in any of these places will tell you they're scary, uncomfortable places designed to make you want to run away.

It's the nature of the thing.

After a week, or even a month, they seem better than home.

The staff treated me with respect.

The place probably needs rebuilding soon.

There aren't many beds these days.

I wish they'd allow patients access to staff toilets.

It can be necessary some times.
