Silvergate is certainly the most clean and friendly retirement residence that I have visited. The apartments are well laid out, very spacious and comfortable. I am fortunate to have visited the on-site restaurant on a few occasions and the high quality food is served to a very high standard. The Marketing Director has been especially helpful during the time my Uncle was a resident at Silvergate and has been very supportive to my Aunt ever since his sad passing in 2020. I have no hesitation in highly recommending the Silvergate Retirement Residence.

My mother has been a resident of Park Terrace for a year. I myself worked in Gerontology for 15 years and have visited many seniors living facilities. I have been particularly impressed with the Park Terrace staff as they are consistently upbeat, patient, and courteous to residents. They are always willing and ready to accommodate and help residents and family members. Visitors are allowed almost any time of the day or night. The complex is inviting, spacious, and immaculate with several large patios and includes a beauty salon, a large comfortable library with computers and a poll. Park Terrace has both a cafe and a dining room which is more like a dining room which is more like a restaurant with respectful servers and a changing menu. My mother has never had to eat alone. They have an extensive schedule of daily activities including local trips, exercise classes, entertainment, shopping, history classes, happy hours, church services, bingo, podiatry services and yoga. It always seems to me that Park Terrace runs like-tuned machine: well organized and coordinated. And so the outcome for us is peace of mind for my mom and our family.
