  • My father was a resident in their Memory Care unit for 15 months. He had dementia and behavioral issues. During that time, he received wonderful care from their very attentive and caring staff. I couldn't be more pleased with the level of communication with both the nursing staff and management. My father received hospice services there during the last month or so of his life. Although I was apprehensive about leaving him in a personal care home at that time, it was one of the best decisions I have made. I know the personal attention he received was far superior to what he would have received by transferring him to a large nursing home. He was able to pass peacefully in familiar surroundings around those who were like family. I cannot thank the staff enough for their kindness.

  • My husband and I toured the facility. It looks great, has a memory care unit and seems reasonably priced. The building is all on one floor with an enclosed courtyard. I didn't think to ask all the questions my sisters would have so I guess I will have to call back to discuss them.

  • Nice place, overall

    We visited this community when we were looking into care options for a loved one. Overall this seemed like a nice place. However, the rooms seemed a bit small. Some residents had less furniture which made the rooms look better, but if you had a TV or dressers, it was a tight fit. Bathrooms had commodes and sinks but no showers in the ones that we saw. The residents here were very friendly and were happy to talk to us while we were visiting. Patricia was also very nice and happy to provide us with information.
