This place is an excellent facility that specializes in the care of Chinese speaking people. It is well maintained and the staff is always ready to help. My mom lived there until she passed .

We think it's a very nice place. It has a lot of amenities, and they have special events regularly. Every Thursday they have a happy hour, and they schedule events for the families to attend as well. I think they're really working hard to keep people happy. The staff is very friendly, and most of the residents are as well. Mom tells me the food is pretty good. We really like that if you end up needing assisted living down the road, you don't have to move to another apartment, which was not the case anywhere else that we looked. You also have a choice of a studio, 1-bedroom, or 2-bedroom apartment. And her 1-bedroom is very roomy.
