Review of Glen Eddy

I have been here 8 years. Moving here to Glen Eddy was my only choice. Living alone in a Glenville home was not an option.

Review originally written on A Place For Mom

A New Home

The Eddy sets the standard for quality living and attention to detail. We were amazed by the amount of time the staff spent with us during the review process and even more so after Mom moved in. Mom was able to customize her living space to meet her needs which made the whole transition possible. Never an easy change to move from a long time home, but the team at The Eddy made it a warm and welcoming environment.
