  • While there have been a few bumps in the road, I have been extremely happy with my husband's care. The current administrative team is second to none, creating an environment that seems to keep the staff happy and hard working. The nursing staff is somewhat fluid, but there are several nurses that have been there for awhile and know the residents very well. They are kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. Everyone who works here at all levels is given training in caring with these sometimes challenging residents. The building is always very clean and meals are healthy and well received by the residents. There are many varied activities offered daily to keep the residents occupied and on every holiday there is a party that includes friends and family. I regard everyone who works at Cardinal Court as extended family and they have given my husband excellent care. I have no regrets!

    Exceptionally clean, modern, beautiful and all inclusive facility. There are regular scheduled support meeting for family members as well as a fun gathering is for residents and families members for special occasions. Although there is currently one exemption, the entire management staff, nurses, caregivers, food service and housekeeping personnel are friendly, personable and have a passion for their work. Everyone working in the community will do whatever it takes to ensure the residents are well taken care of, comfortable, entertained with activities or simply carry on a conversation. Communications between dayshift and weekend shifts could be somewhat improved.
