Overall Summary

We've been very happy. It has been hard with Covid, but overall we're very happy with it. The people are very friendly. The community is a good size, not too big and not too small. Compared to other facilities I've been to, it feels more like apartments rather than a hospital type setting. And it's very convenient for our family.... Read more

My tour review

The tour at this community was nice but we just knew that this community was not thee right fit for my loved one at the time. They gave me all of the information that I needed and answered all of my questions.

Our Experience During Covid

I felt like the facility itself was very nice. I didn't get to experience any of the food or anything, but having read about how it was before Covid, it sounded similar to where my loved one was at in a different state. The rooms were decently sized, and they had different food choices for each meal. That part we were pleased with. I feel like it was a very nice place. Unfortunately we had a Covid experience there, so that kind of changed things, but I would still definitely recommend it to someone. The staff that I was able to talk to were very friendly. As far as I know everything was fine, and I didn't have any complaints, but I couldn't go in to visit. My assumption would be that the care was good. They would respond to my questions, I had no problems with that. They would call to notify me of any incidents, for instance when she fell and was taken to the hospital, where she tested positive for Covid. The lobby was very nice and clean when we moved her in. And we moved her stuff into her room the day before. Her room was all clean, and looked very nice as well. One of the staff members was very excited about decorating the room and having it all ready for her.
