    I feel I can relax knowing Mom is getting excellent care at Iris.

  • We ended up placing my dad in Iris after trying a Memory Care center a little closer to home. Iris was a much better fit for our whole family! My dad is a difficult case and they were patient with him and worked with my family to find the best way to care for him. The whole staff always made my mom feel welcome and part of the family. We wish we would have made the switch sooner, but we are glad we found it now!

  • My Mom and Dad are here

    When I had to move both parents to memory care at the same time, the staff at Iris made a difficult transition go more smoothly than I would have expected. All of the staff are very caring and engaged with the residents. They have also been responsive to my concerns and requests. This is a nice place and the food is good too.
