6/8/2015 Please review and update your stats. This is NOT a facility that takes Medicare. This facility is new, beautiful and state of the art. The residents are ALL war veterans, mostly male with a few female veterans. The services and environment are tailored for relaxation with patios, aviaries, special lighting, music and aroma therapy. These veterans receive VA pensions or disability that goes toward their monthly care.
