Everyone was very nice. The main caregiver was good and I liked her. The community was comparable in some aspects to Sunrise. Our experience was during the pandemic and short time period.

So far, so good. We have my wife's aunt there. She has been in residence about two weeks. The staff is very attentive to any concerns we have and to our aunt's needs. We have been impressed with the professionalism of the staff and management. They had a program worked out for our aunt to get her socialized and involved in activities from the moment she arrived.

Charlotte is a charming mid-sized city filled with tons of great museums and restaurants, and is practically bursting at the seams with culture. The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta, houses works in all mediums by some of the modern masters. The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture is a cultural center that focuses on all types of artistic expression celebrating African-American voices.
