  • Caring staff and well maintained.

    The staff is very caring . My Dad feels comfortable with his care giver. He feels secure and respected. The facility is well maintained and the menu and food are well done. The staff encourage my Dad to participate in activities and this has helped him meet more of his neighbors and helped his transition into the community.
