User Reviews

11/27/2012  -  An OurParents User Writes:

Horrible place to work or live.

Response: I hope that the public recognizes the comments of a clearly disgruntled ex-employee. We treat each and every resident as an individual and attempt to keep them as happy and healthy as possible. A quick visit to our Residence (either scheduled or unannounced) would immediately prove that the above statement is utterly false.

We placed my mother at Captain Lewis Residence two years ago following my father's passing. They have a wonderful staff and beautiful facility which reminds Mom of home.

Response: Thank you for your kind comments. We work very hard to keep all of our residents happy and healthy. David Kingsley - Owner/President
