A Safe Place

[name removed] is the best and has made it easy to work with the community. It would be nice for some of the staff to be quicker to respond to my questions about my loved one and the billing. I would recommend the community to others.

Great overall adult facility

The quality of the facility and the cost is very reasonable. Food is excellent, they offer a variety of food! They have church services, have a sports room, crafting room, as well as a theater room. Absolutely would recommend this to a family or friend. Great medical staff!

Hooray for Flushing House!

My husband and I looked into the possibility of his brother's moving in to Flushing House. We took him for an interview and he was greeted warmly and the interview went well. He really wanted to live there. From that day until the day he moved into his apartment in Flushing House his experience has been a happy one. Everyone was very helpful, especially [name removed] in Marketing. She made everything so easy. [Name removed] at the Security Desk was super helpful too. My husband and I joined his brother for lunch in the dining room. Even there the service was exceptional and the food was good too. We are so happy his brother is living in a good place and enjoying all the amenities. Thank you Flushing House. :)

Nice Community, My Mother is Doing Well

This is a nice retirement community, and my mother is doing pretty well since her move here. She is starting to call it home, and I'am satisfied with all they have done for us. The staff is great, and very helpful. She has met some new friends, which is nice too see. The community is nice, and clean when I visit. This community is working out well for us, and I would recommend it.

Liked the place. Rooms were nice and people looked active. Although less than some other places, not sure we can afford. No insurance so would be all self-paid.

A good match

We looked at a number of places and found Flushing House a good match for my brother . He is very happy with the food and the caring staff. He has made some friends, he likes his room that has a nice view. The cost of his room and board is within his budget and less than the other facilities. Flushing House has a relationship with a medical provider which eased his transfer from a rehabilitation facility . So far so good
