  • Best place for mom!

    The staff is absolutely wonderful, they are so kind to my mother as well as us when we come to visit. The care services are wonderful. My mom is in the memory unit, which they do some exercises for them, but for the residents who are not in the memory caret unit they do provided more activities for them. The food is excellent. They have individual rooms that have their own AC/heating unit. It is great size, enough for a refrigerator, and a big closet. It is a great set up. The administrator is very attentive and very friendly. They made us feel very welcomed when we were first moving her in. Every one seems to care about every body. We truly cant say enough good things about this place. We are very satisfied we would recommend this to anyone!

  • Wonderful Place

    Our family cannot begin to say enough good about Colonial Place. We had to place our Aunt there due to Alzheimer disease after her husband passed. They were God's gift to us, so compassionate and caring. We would highly recommend this facility! Have no regrets at all. Thank you all for your help during our time of need! God Bless each and all!
