The staff are very friendly. My loved ones tell me all the time how much they love the food. They enjoy the activities, especially bingo and music. They enjoyed working with [name removed], the admissions person. And they really like the The CNAs and housekeepers as well. Really the only negative thing is their follow-through isn't the best at times. I would like to see that improve.
