I am very satisfied with the service and caring kindness of the staff. My mom has been a resident at Amber court since 2014 she feels safe and enjoys herself there. She is very active in the community It is comforting to know that she is someplace safe and reliable. I have never found it to be anything but the best choice we have made thus far

So Far All is Well

So far everything is working out pretty well for my mother since her move to this community. I know she is safe, and receiving good care. The staff is very aware of her needs, based on what I have told them. She hasn't had any complaints so far, and everything is working out well. This is a community I would recommend.

Appeared to be a nice place. But too much isolation in the assisted living area and dementia unit appeared too small and restricted-we actually never saw a resident nor a occupied room-a bit suspicious.
