Reviews of The Hearth at Glastonbury
I like it and being with people helped me get back into doing things that I enjoy like playing cards, playing games, and singing with others.
I'm giving an overall 4 because I believe there is always room for improvement. Anyway, [name removed] came and supported me through the whole time trying to get me to move in here. I was procrastinating...
They're taking good care of me here. I feel safe and have made many friends here too!
