  • Exceptional community

    It is a great place that feels secure, safe, and very friendly. From the cooks to the cleaners, everyone was most welcoming and caring as well. I felt safe with her being there and I felt that they would take good care of her. I would definitely recommend this community to other families. We chose this community because the director and assistant director were so friendly and most helpful. They were were welcoming and all the staff added that personal touch.
