  • Review of Ellen's Home South

    I researched all of the nursing homes and assisted living in my area when it was time to find a home for my mother. I was most impressed with Ellen's home and my mom has been there since last November. [Name removed] and all her workers are amazing! My mom is not easy to handle and they do it with patience and kindness on a daily basis. I am so grateful and highly recommend them!!

  • Nice facility and very nice people. Had a suite available for Mom, but the pricing was a little higher than I had hoped.

  • Good Tour, but not The Right Fit for Us

    I had a good tour of this community. I toured it for my father, and his needs. The community looked nice, and clean. The staff was kind, and friendly to my family, and myself. Unfortunately this wasn't the right fit for my father, and his needs.
