User Reviews

03/25/2010  -  An OurParents User Writes:

Our Mother/Grandmother has been in the facility now for 5 months and we have been very pleased with the facility, the staff and the quality of care that she has received. She has enjoyed the experience. If you can no longer be completely independent, this really is the next best thing. Gram has enjoyed the outings provided and the socialization opportunities that she has been given. I think she has returned to much more outgoing self and finds comfort in knowing the staff is just a phone call away. Thank you.
