Reviews of Loyalist Retirement Residence

  • Older Establishment

    This community was not the right fit for my mom. This is an older establishment more for long term care. My mom needed more of an assisted living facility. My mom loves to be active.

  • NO COMPASSION! NO CARE!

    If you are sending a loved one here that you care about I would recommend it is not a good idea!!! This home lacks compassion as well as care for seniors.
