  • A caring daughter that has a loved one living here

    Today marks one month since my beautiful mama moved into mactaggart. This facility has shown so much good change in my mom she is happy here.The staff are very patient they certainly make the residence feel...

  • The best option if [name removed] will accept facility care. He seems to be settling on in-home care however (but has not yet learned of the cost involved.)

  • too far off the beaten track.
