Review ofTwin Cedar Senior Living
5.0

My 96-year-old mom has been a resident of Twin Cedars since January, 2020 and loves it! From the first day when she was upset she would be staying, the staff immediately knew just how to engage her and by the time I’d finished filling out forms, she barely noticed I was leaving. The staff remarkably even protected each and every one from getting covid. You can’t go wrong choosing Twin Cedars. I can’t say enough about this wonderful place for my mom to live out her last years in happiness.

Review ofSunrise of Lower Makefield
5.0

They were fantastic. The facility was extremely clean. My loved one was only there for short time before passing away, but they were wonderful people. They were extremely nice, pleasant, easy to work with, and very knowledgeable. They know their stuff, and I felt like they just couldn't help us enough. Getting things set up and moved into her room went smoothly - they helped us with everything. We had a different relative there a few years back, and with each of our experiences, they were great across the board. And compared to a nursing home, the cost is about half.
