Good Move

I would tell others that it is a very nice, friendly community to move into. It was a good move for me. They have games, lectures, exercise classes, take you on walks, movies, and other activities for the residents to choose from.

My Father Is Being Cared For Well Here

Everything is working out very well for my father here. The community looks great, they keep his room and the community well maintained. There are many activities offered. The staff is very good, they have been helpful and attentive. He is pleased with the meals. I know he is being cared for well and I would recommend this community.

Mom LOVED this place. We s...

Mom LOVED this place. We saw a 1-bedroom and she was ready to move in. BUT, the cost may be too high. The strong interest here is that you buy the unit and have it as an asset. But even still, the costs may make this not possible. We had dinner Mon night with 2 residents and it was great. Food was pretty good, not outrageously good as I was sort of expecting. Continental bfast, 30 points for other meals for each month. Stephanie was very sweet. She explained the Priority List ($1K). Great place and would be the easiest and best for being able to visit Mom often. Mom feels she can't afford it. I'm looking at ways to imagine moving her there, maybe waiting longer.
