We chose North Penn Manor because they had a good rating, the price was good, and she has been here over a year and they answer all of our questions and call whenever we have issues. They seem to take good care of her. They just started letting us schedule visits in the dining area. From what I can see she seems to be happy here and I would recommend them to others who are looking.

We chose Parkland Manor because we had a reference from a friend who had her mother here and they had a really good experience. Also after touring we felt it would be a good fit for her. It is definitely the best in the area. Despite being very busy, the staff are always friendly and willing to help with a smile on their face. They are great with communication to the family The setup of the facility is great, it is all on one level and feels like a home. I would absolutely recommend to other families looking.

My impressions of Tiffany Court were positive. The people who led the virtual tour were very friendly, nice people, and they did a good job within the virtual context of showing the place and explaining everything. They were thorough and really seemed to be making a strong effort to make it a pleasant experience for me. There are limits on how much I can tell from a virtual tour, but from what I could see, I thought it looked pleasant and home-like. It seemed like a nice, clean, friendly, pretty establishment, the kind of place you would enjoy living at if you needed that type of care.
