My grandmother had the best life there for 5 years and my family never needed to do anything other than visit and participate in the many activities there. The staff is among the best you'll find anywhere. They know care for the whole person in addition to top notch medical care. The intergenerational aspect is unique to this place and is great for both the kids and residents! Thank you.
