Doing good

Moved my mom in recently as she is no longer to be safely on her own. She is having her moments and wants to go back to her "old life" but overall she seems to be doing well. The staff is great always friendly have a smile on their face. Her first event was the Luau and she loved it. She even met a woman who's husband she used to work with 50 + years ago! GAPB has given me a peace of mind that I haven't had in months. I realized I was running myself into the ground. I am so lucky to have had the help of Michelle from A Place for Mom and the ladies at GAPB Klara and Vickie. Thank you all so much

Love this place but out of our price range and not super costly compared to most but they are pretty non-negotiable. Medication management is an extra charge which is a major reason we need assisted living so counts this one out.
