Reviews of Prairieview at The Garlands

ToddW November 07, 2012

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We have been very pleased with the grounds, staff, and care provided. We looked at several different places for my grandmother and noticed a few things about the Garlands. What we especially liked was the size of the 1 bedroom apartment residence for my grandmother. We also appreciated the maid service and social activities. We were worried that, after my grandfather died, my grandmother would become socially withdrawn. The staff has been good about encouraging her to become involved. The one issue I have with The Garlands is the cost. The cost is much higher than other area retirement facilities but the quality s much better.
