    My mother loves it at the community, and it has been so good for her. The healthcare staff is respectful, on top of everything and accessible. Maintenance fixes issues in a day, the building looks satisfactory, and her apartment is beautiful. Housekeeping services are always dumping trash and they’re really nice. The staff provide a lot of activities, and there is a variety. The residents are given activity calendar sheets of the month, and those are followed up every day with little daily schedules as reminders. She likes the dining and says the food is always good. Every time I ask for anything, management jumps right on it with no waiting. Overall, I feel very comfortable with her being there, and it was a big move for both of us. She has absolutely blossomed, and she is happy, which is all that matters.

    – Tina C (Daughter)

    I just thank God for them. It took us a lot to find them, but it was definitely worth the journey. I have said to others that it is the best experience, best value, most peace of mind that I have ever felt. Having seen numerous programs and knowing my parents are cared for in a safe, nice enviornment is great. The level of activities they have is very meaningful. It isn’t cutesy, it is purposeful. The nursing staff is phenomenal. They are thorough, persistent and check behind each other.

    – Amy K (Daughter)

    I know my mom is being loved on, cared for, and engaged. The executive director, Rita, is very compassionate, responsive, and answers all of my questions. The care team is also very accessible and responsive to my concerns. The nurse provided me with her cellphone number and she has been my eyes and ears in there while I cannot get in. The building is very well kept and they really try their best to engage the residents with activities. During quarantine they have really made an effort to keep them busy. This community is the very best there is!
