My brother has been living at Twin Cedars since 2016. I have been so impressed with the care he has received from a dedicated and compassionate staff. Twin Cedars has a warm, homey and immaculate environment with daily activities for the residents. Knowing he is living in such a nourishing and secure atmosphere gives me peace of mind. It is also worth mentioning, due to their careful protocols during this pandemic, they have been COVID free.

The sales team was excellent and the director is great at sending updates via email. The only negative was that I think that the nursing staff could have followed up better with the family members, they were hard to get a hold of and did not have a sense of urgency and did not keep families up to speed as well as we would have liked.

My grandfather was a resident at Belle Reve and I couldn't have been happier. I saw the stress leave my parents as they transitioned him into the facility. The staff were so kind and so patient with him and really had his best interest in mind. As a family, we all felt like he was in good hands and we could trust the staff to take care of him.

We chose North Penn Manor because they had a good rating, the price was good, and she has been here over a year and they answer all of our questions and call whenever we have issues. They seem to take good care of her. They just started letting us schedule visits in the dining area. From what I can see she seems to be happy here and I would recommend them to others who are looking.

My impressions of Tiffany Court were positive. The people who led the virtual tour were very friendly, nice people, and they did a good job within the virtual context of showing the place and explaining everything. They were thorough and really seemed to be making a strong effort to make it a pleasant experience for me. There are limits on how much I can tell from a virtual tour, but from what I could see, I thought it looked pleasant and home-like. It seemed like a nice, clean, friendly, pretty establishment, the kind of place you would enjoy living at if you needed that type of care.
