Review ofGrace Assisted Living at Chubbuck

It's awesome. I call them all the time to do things, and they're always helping me. I live at a distance, and they're always willing to do whatever I ask of them. The facility itself was also a big factor in our decision. Their apartments were big enough to take my loved one's 9.5 foot couch.

The food is great. The service is good. It's a homey experience. The cost is pretty up there. But it's a good place for my loved one, and he is well taken care of here.
