We just brought my grandmother here and the staff was incredibly welcoming. I feel she is well cared for. She's 97 y/o and needs help with just about everything. We checked her in yesterday and I'm very pleased with our first-time experience. From the director to all the nurses we met, we feel blessed to have these people caring for her. The facility is what you would expect of a nursing home but, the staff truly make this place what it is.

Response: Don't listen to what the state or Feds say about these places...they never set foot in and only evaluate based on numbers and paperwork. Do your own homework, look under the hood and see that what truly makes a great nursing facility are the people inside. As a relative of a resident, the government's review was the most unhelpful thing I came across. I give the government raters one star for effort, one star for compassion and zero stars for overall usefulness. They are better off not rating any facility and getting a real job.
