User Reviews

02/09/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Took very good care of my mother. The facility was always clean and had no odors. The nursing staff were very professional and kind. Mother loved the staff and they took very good care of her. I have been in other places and have seen where someone would put their call light on and it would take 10 or 15 minutes for someone to respond. Mother never waited more than 3 or 4 minutes when I was there. She lived there back in 2010 and 2011. I reallly believe that the quality is as good as the best places in town.

11/22/2012 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My mother it there, These are kind loving people. Even the cleaning crew & even the ground keepers smile back when you smile at them. If I ever need to go to a nursing home, this would be the place I would like to go. Thomas McIntosh
