Did not like it at all! Very disorganized & unappealing.

Grateful & Can't Say Enough Good!

We are grateful that our 96-yr-old mother is at Carefree. Everyone who works there has demonstrated kindness & thoughtfulness. We can trust that even through this challenging time of uncertainty, mom is being cared for comprehensively & compassionately.

I currently do not live in the same state but when I did visit the community everything was great! The staff was very friendly, community seems very clean. My mother lives in the cottages so she is pretty independent. So far so good.
