I visited this facility
Everyone who I met who worked there was super kind and willing to do just about anything. The rooms were fair sized and had bathrooms. They have a cafe that is open to the public to allow the interaction of the residents more with everyone else. They also have an outdoor area similar to a park with benches and a nice walkway. The hallways were not confusing or anything, everything was clearly marked.
I am a friend or relative of a resident
My grandmother is a resident here, and she absolutely loves it. She has Alzheimer's disease, and can sometimes be a little bit difficult. The staff seems to be very kind and understanding of her condition, and do their best to make her comfortable. The facility itself is wonderful. It has a gym for the residents, a bistro where residents and their visitors can eat, and they even decorate for the holidays. Each time that I have been at the facility, I have also seen their menus for lunch/dinner. It seems like they always have very hearty and healthy meals. My grandmother seems to like the food very much. It also has some very nice gardens and courtyards around the building if you want to take a walk outside. The building's layout is nice also, because one part of it has the residents that need more help functioning throughout the day, while the other section has the residents that do not really need any supervision through the day. For the residents that do not need a lot of supervision, they can actually get rooms that are similar to apartments and include kitchenettes. The section where the people who do need supervision live is very secure, and the doors require codes in order for people to get in and out. If someone leaves without using the code, an alarm goes off. There is usually at least one staff member near the doors. Overall, I feel very good having my grandmother there, and she seems to really enjoy living there.
