  • [name removed] was helpful, friendly and knew residents by their first names, friendly and respectful. Most rooms are shared where beds are foot-to- foot. This was a shift for me but may be beneficial for the residents. Lots of gathering areas, activity room, and large court yard. Appears to have more high needs residents concerned dad may not have enough cognitive stimulation with individuals at his level. Cost is reasonable and dad can “age in place”, we would not have to move him if he needed more medical attention.

  • I wouldn't mind living here myself

    My Mom lives here and she hasn’t had any problems or complaints. The staff interacts with her very well. They stay on top of the cleanliness extremely well. I’ve never seen her room dirty and I go there every day. The food is awesome, it’s almost like eating at a restaurant. My Mom is eating well and there are times when I’m envious that I didn’t get a plate myself. They usually serve the chef’s choice but there seems to be a good variety. I don’t think I’ve seen the same thing being served within the past 2 months. The residents’ beds have alarm sensors in them for added safety and that’s something I really like. If someone falls out of bed or gets up in the middle of the night to wander, the staff is alerted immediately so they check on them. My wife worked in the geriatric healthcare field for about 30 years and even she’s impressed. I have no hesitations in recommending this place.
