It is the best community that you could hope for, for an assisted living. They have done several things such as taking care of the residents, vaccinating the residents, and helpful in keeping the residents comfortable during the pandemic. I've been pleased with everything here. The community is bringing in physical therapy and a room for exercise equipment for the residents.
