  • Comfortable living

    The living space is quite comfortable. We have a large, bright living apartment. The staff is very personable and responsive. The Foodservice is way above average. The big bonus is a nice big patio with great privacy.

  • Awful management & can't reach corporate offices. Constant busy signal. My sister lives nearby & is washing towels & changing my mom's bed. 2 separate times 2 different groups of 5 women who made up the housekeeping staff have all quit. Thank goodness my sister lives near her. We are shopping for a better place for my mom.

  • Positive Experience

    Unfortunately this community did not work out well for my mother, and her needs. She ended up needing more care than they were able to provide. However we did have a good experience in this community. They were very helpful, and was quick to answer any question I may have. It was a positive experience.
