  • If I could give this 10 stars I would! The place was spotless, cheerful and very inviting. [Name removed] at the receptionist desk was the start of my enjoyable appt. [Name removed] was awesome to talk to and deal with and very knowledgeable. The entire place of people I may have passed were very friendly and made me feel welcome. The residents looked so happy to live there. I actually felt like family myself. Close to my office and home which makes it convenient.

  • All Show - No Substance

    We have moved my Mom to another home. Our experience was unexpectedly bad. The facility is beautiful in appearance. The Executive staff are over the top friendly, but in a plastic, customer service way. Some of the nursing and care staff were excellent, but there are not enough who care. Too many who were directly involved were not professional. They acted like it was drudgery when asked to help and seemed frustrated when helping. Many times we found the same individuals talking about trivial matters back at the tables in the dining room. My mom had 5 falls in less than 1 month. We were not told about the 5th fall until hours after it happened. Due one of these falls, my mom broke her wrist. She fell again on the same wrist and re-injured the break. After the 5th fall we had her taken to the hospital and asked that she did not return.

  • New plush facility

    I was looking for a facility for my Wife and we were able to tour this community. The administrator who gave us the tour was very nice. The building itself looked great and it was brand new. What I really liked is that they have a great courtyard and even a bowling alley. The only reason why we did not go to the facility is that the atmosphere and people felt too plush. I would recommend this facility to other families.
