This is a nice facility. My grandparents have a one-bedroom place. It came fully furnished with a bed, couches, TV, etc.; as a result, my grandparents didn't have to bring any furniture. There are also multiple amenities that make this place comfortable and secure. For example, there's a heating and cooling system for each unit that allows grandma and grandpa to control the temperature. In addition, there's also an emergency button in the unit that reaches a staff that is on-call 24 hours. That way, if there's an emergency that's about to happen (i.e. a major headache), my grandparents can immediately get assistance. In addition to having a comfortable room, my grandparents also appreciate the outdoors and the community. There are several walking trails and a lot of greenery, which makes it nice for peaceful walks and for reflection. There is also a good sense of community here, as there are many scheduled events that residents participate in. There are free exercise classes that help my grandparents to manage their diabetes. In addition, there is also a chapel service that takes place every week. My parents are spiritual, so this allows them to worship with other people of the same faith. Overall, it's a great facility.

A fairly large place with decent landscaping. The lawn was sort of maintained but since it was dark at the time we were there, most of the outside features went unnoticed. Inside however was fairly nice, our friend working that night met us in the dining room (which was very neat and clean, although it looked a little out of fashion) and ended up showing us around the place. The rooms were pretty small but they seemed like they had just enough space to be comfortable and feel spacious enough. Everything was well lit, the walkways were clear, clean, and also well lit. My opinion of the staff is clearly biased since we knew each other personally, but the others that work there seemed friendly enough. Since we were with an employee they kind of left us alone. Only bad thing I can think of is that the building itself is kind of ugly.

The facility was very big and spacious. They had a beautifully maintained law and plenty of gorgious flowers,and a walkway for the clients to use at thier convienience. Unpon walking inside is an entry, with a piano that the clients were playing, which caught my eye because my mom use to love playing. Their dining room faces the nieghborhood and has a decient view. The tables were made properly and very clean, not one spot on the glasses. The staff seemed very friendly and involved with the clients unlike most of the facilities in the surrounding neighboring areas. The bedrooms were generiously sized, maintained very well and there was not a speck of dust anywhere. The have plenty of daily walks and activities. The only thing that I didn't see was an big enough area for indoor phsyical activities. The other thing that wasn't very nice was the ulgy green carpet, but that isn't really a big issue, just an eye sore. All in all I would have to say that it was one of the best establishments that I have checked out, and I have been to no less than 15.

If your community accepts dogs or cats, what indoor/outdoor areas can they enjoy?

Our building sits on 4 acres and the surrounding areas are very park-like. Most residents on the first floor are able to exit their apartment through their patio door to enjoy huge trees and lots of grass. Perfect setting for dog owners.
