I visited this facility

The staff at Garnett Place Retirement were wonderful and very informative, very patient. One of the things that impressed us was how residents are just walking around, and everybody seemed to know their names and interacted with them. It was a very nice place. The rooms were okay. The price was competitive with the other facilities. They have activities both in and out of the facility. Outside, there was a garden where the residents could plant vegetables and flowers. They have the usual crafts and things. The dining area was a very nice facility. We were impressed with the menu they offer for the residents.

I visited this facility

The only reason I decided not in Garnett Place was because it is different levels. There’s an elevator, but there are a lot of steps also and I just thought it was confusing to me and to my husband. I thought it would be hard for my husband to get around and to keep track of where he was. The rooms were nice. The ones we looked at were either 1- or 2-bedroom. You had your living room area and a kitchenette that didn’t have a stove but they had a microwave, a refrigerator, a sink, and a full bath.
