    The staff did a great job of keeping me informed about my mom. They all knew my mom very well. They were doing a great job. The management team is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable about their facility and their fields of expertise. I think it’s a good value. The Blake was definitely top tier in quality and cleanliness and atmosphere. I have been telling everyone about what a blessing the whole staff is there.

    -Janet N. (daughter)

    We are really thrilled about the activities they have Mom in for memory. The staff is very courteous and professional. Her room is clean, her sheets are clean and her clothing is clean. The building looks clean and nice. The caregivers assist her with everything. We are really happy with this community. I have been at other places and the care and community are much nicer here.

    -Dan A. (son)

    My sister and I like everything about the place. It is a very good place and she is very happy. That is all the family cares about. The servers in the dining area are attentive and helpful. The building is maintained well and the apartment is beautiful. The care staff is taking good care of her and we like that they have a doctor on staff.
