Benton House of Tiffany Springs in Kansas City, MO
5.0

While looking for a facility for my Mother, I wanted something close to my home. My mom is very well taken care of by the staff and they are always very helpful. For activities, they have things like Zumba, carolers come in, church services, and they even have people who bring their dogs in. There is always something to do all day long. The food here is absolutely phenomenal and my mom always raves about it. They serve 1 main entrée with an optional side menu if you don’t like what they’re having. I would recommend this community to other families.

So far I'm very satisfied with Villa Ventura!!! I'm extremely pleased with [name removed] who set the expectation for the facility!!! She went over and beyond to accommodate getting my mom situated with limited notice. Most of the Interim Home Health staff are great as well. I'm grateful that the facility took appropriate action to keep the residences safe during this pandemic!!! I would recommend Villa Ventura!!!
