The staff members are all definitely friendly, and we do think they offer good activities. We think it is nicely ran, everyone there is very nice. We would recommend this community to a family or friend.

3 / 5.0

We really like that Mission Creek is a smaller community - we felt this would allow our loved one to have more one on one personalized quality care. The staff members have all been friendly and helpful and based on our experience so far we would recommend Mission Creek to other families
