Review of Prairie Hills

I was invited to do caricatures of the residents. We were in the South lounge sitting area which had great lighting. Many had never had a funny drawing done of themselves. All of the staff were very helpful. I especially noticed the way [name removed] gently kept on encouraging one of the residents who was a bit undecided to have her caricature drawn. Finally after all others were finished, she let me draw her. I had a great time talking with them and listening to them laugh about their drawing and sharing life stories. It's never for late to try something you have never done before!

I moved here from another Assisted Living community in town and am highly satisfied. All staff are very good to residents. There are lots of activities going on so you can keep busy every day. This is a great place to live!
