I’ve had nothing but a good experience while living here. The staff is good and able to answer all of my questions. The food they serve is nutritious and there are lots of options to choose from. They have a few different activities available like cards, crafts, and trips. The facility is brand new and is very clean. I would absolutely recommend them.
