Who are you searching for?

Review ofThe Trace Senior Community
4.0

I chose The Trace because of the larger room sizes and there are fewer people who live here. The staff is very friendly, but the problem is they are short staffed which is no fault of their own. The residents are all very friendly and welcoming. I really like my room size, I had plenty of room for all of my things and I have a nice size closet. They come in and clean once and week and the grounds are well kept. The facility is pet friendly and they seem to enjoy my dog. The food and dining service is starting to improve. I would recommend them to others who are looking.

Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.

What are care homes?

Residential care homes are houses in residential neighborhoods that are equipped, adapted, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually between two and 10.
