Good Community

Everything here has been good so far. Everything is working just fine. Our loved one is enjoying it. The types of people that are in this community are more active and try to keep busy. The location was very good for our family. I would recommend this community to certain people who have specific needs.

Super place. Very homey and nice. Big rooms with bright windows. Residents were very friendly. This is the one that I feel Mom would like the most. Very impressed with services.
