I'm not sure if I should post this here or somewhere else but has anyone visited Robinson CC lately?  I've read through all the previous posts on here but they are obviously from a few years ago.  Was interested to know if anyone has been there lately and if there is anything a newbie should know about this facility (phone list approval, visiting list approval, visiting in general, housing conditions etc...)!?!  Any insight would be greatly appreciated, Thank You!!   :wc38:
You are the first thought when I wake up, the last thought before I go to bed and every thought in between! I loved you yesterday, I love you today and I will always love you tomorrow! ♡♡☆☆♡♡

Do we not have any members left with loved ones at Robinson? I have gotten answers to most of my questions from the facility but I was still wondering about visits like what kind of seating they have ( I have severe fibromyalgia) so just wondering if they have the long tables, big round tables, half moon tables and do the seats have backs? I know some places do. I stay as long as they will let me and this just allows me to prepare better for the level of pain I am going to have. The other major question is can they keep their tv's and other electronics?

My LO was just transferred out of Robinson a week ago, but I can tell you that they have tables for 4 or 6; the seats do have backs on them. The COs were always very nice but they did enforce the 4 hour time limit every time we visited. I have a couple of vending cards that may or may not have a few dollars on them; message me an address if you'd like me to mail them to you.

 Thank you so much Mary Kay I would appreciate that. I will send a private message. Yeah the time limit is the part I am not looking forward to right now we get from 830 to 530 and he is only 15 minutes away from home but he has been in 17 years and really needs to get where there is air. We just aren't young anymore.
