Reviews of Evans Retirement Center
This center, honestly, was horrible. I'm not even sure how somebody could put a family member in here. Also, the rates were comparable to those of other retirement communities that had amenities galore....
- Could Use Some Updating
This community appeared a little older than the others we had toured. I felt that it could use some updating in the appearance of the building. The rooms we saw were small and my parents would have had to share...
- Good For My Mom
I am happy with the care, cleanliness, and the staff who work there. I picked them for the affordability. My likes the activities. The activities person is really good when arranging them.
