    My brother in law was there in Enhanced assisted living and all I can say is DON'T but your loved here. The director of nursing was very rude. He would ring because he needed to be changed, they'd come in turn off his necklace that would let them know he needed something and then say they had to get someone to help. Hed sit in his dirty diaper for 20 minutes. If it was almost lunch he'd have to wait till after lunch. They are very short staffed. He ended up with a bedsore!!! This place was a nightmare. I could go on and on how bad it was. Please dont put your loved one here.

    I would be remiss if I did not warn others about this “assisted care” facility. Be warned it is beautiful, rooms well maintained, eating areas are open, and it is easy to envision the one that you love living there. I get it when your parents or significant other is at that stage where assisted living is the only option all you want is a place that you can trust and is beautiful. However, if you are considering this facility again be warned. Money does not buy good care when the facility mismanaged. Check out this little gem about the facility that you are considering – news. We had great plans for my Dad when he moved in after rehab. It is true that we did not know that he was very close to death. It is true that the clothes my Dad wore on Easter Sunday were still on him and soaked straight through on that following Monday, found by my Mom. It is true that I had no words of comfort for my Mom, except this facility is [language removed] and it is true that after my father had passed this facility was going to charge my Mom for a care bracelet that was only used at their facility, they had apparently forgotten to remove it in their rush to ship out my Dad’s body. Are there good caregivers there? Possibly but the negative outweighs the positive. If you read the above and are still considering this facility as an option, I will pray for you and your loved one so that your experience is not the same.
