I would highly recommend. Love the whole atmosphere. The staff is wonderful and very Knowledgable. Always a smile and helpful. From the minute you walk in the door until you leave you meet warm loving people. The dining was also a pleasant. Food very tasty. My parents love this place.

We were promised a lot of things in the beginning from the sales person which is why we chose the facility in the first place. She was very deceptive though so a lot of the things promised were not true. We were super happy with the care and it was a great place, it is unfortunate that we had to move her again. I would just tell others to make sure to really look into Medicaid.
