Feels Like Home

My loved one enjoys having an independent apartment and being able to enjoy the outside. She has her own porch where she can grow flowers, and she's raising tomatoes. She's able to enjoy her gardening, as opposed to being in a building with her room down a long hall like she's in a hotel. That's why she chose Southside. The staff have been very responsive to any needs or requests that she makes. Activities had to be cut back due to Covid, but they're improving lately. They recently just added bus trips back in. She's joined a community of other ladies with similar interests, so she's been keeping rather busy. She's in a card group and plays bingo, and is also in a prayer circle. So I feel she's integrated well into the community.

wonderful place to live

The people and the staff are really great. It's a good safe community the way it's set up. The community is located centrally in the city and has access to a lot of shopping, and shops. I would recommend this community to others.
