    Our visit

    This community felt dark when I visited. The hallways did not seem to offer a lot of light. The community looked clean and the people I met were nice. This community was a little larger than what my loved one was looking for.

  • Let's get it together!

    I appreciate their service and work and so I don't want anything negative said about the staff or meals.
