The Pearl of the Shoals in Muscle Shoals, AL
5.0

I am just thrilled with the change in my dad since he has moved here. He has made friends, even found a girl friend that he has brought to meet me. At first, he felt his room was a little small but even that has changed and he is comfortable. He enjoys going to the dining room and says the food is great, likes all the different activities and the field trips to do his shopping. The staff here are very friendly and they show that they care about their residents. I would definitely recommend this community.

The Renaissance of Florence
5.0

We went with The Renaissance of Florence because they had a hair salon which was very important to my mom. Also I knew someone who worked there that I grew up with and so she felt comfortable knowing someone already. They just remodeled the facility and it is absolutely beautiful. She loved the food that they served as well. We really wish that she would have been able to spend more time here. I would absolutely recommend to others .
