Thankful for The Heritage at Clara Barton

My Mom has lived at The Heritage at Clara Barton for 3 years. Have always been very satisfied with the entire staff, awesome people, treat the residents with respect and the building is spotless. Lots of activities. During these trying times since COVID, there are no words to explain how they have impressed me. [names removed] to name a few . The entire staff came together to do all they could to keep the residents safe and also take care of their emotional needs during this hard time. They make an awesome team at The Heritage. I’m thankful for them everyday .
