Colleen - I toured this community

This is a hidden gem with great views of the golf course. The people living there seemed very happy and were friendly towards my mom. She lives in Aurora but I'd like her closer to me, otherwise, this would have been our pick for her as it is close to where I grew up and close to Copley for medical appointments. I will tell others who ask that it was warm and inviting - I just wish it was close to me and my kids,

Rejected. Facility old, dark, and out-dated. Doors to toilet too narrow for even a walker. Sink/vanity located in narrow alcove with no counter top space. Sink in bedroom with carpeted floor in front.
