Excellent Location

They have new owners. The place is nice. The environment is nice. But it needs some updating. The new administration does not help the residents. The activities are not for independent living. It is a transition right now. They have some remodeling planned. It is an excellent location. They do have transportation.

Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Great location, good size rooms, kind staff, icky food.

When the new management took over the food quality went down. The staffing went down as well when the the management changed. Rooms are good size. They have a good value for the neighborhood they are in and what you get for the money. The wellness/ activities director is doing the best she can with the Covid-19 virus. They are doing the best they can.The administrator has never returned my calls. They are not great with communication around working people hours.
