I visited this facility

I had a tour at The Verandah. I was kind of out in the Country. It was really nice. It had a lot of stuff, but then it was too expensive. It was kind of far out of town, and I kind of liked to live in a little bit more populated area.

I visited this facility

The Verandah was very nice, but it was too far from any kind of grocery store, doctor's office, or other facilities; it was too far away. I thought it was a bit too spread out. What they are calling the assisted living now was maybe originally intended for independent living, because the floor plan was so far from the activity room and really far from the cafeteria in the other direction. That was a lot for walking for old folks. It was also brand new, but they didn't really have that many people there yet either, so they probably didn't have as many activities. They also wanted more money upfront. They wanted a $5,000 non-refundable, and that was the only place thay wanted that; everywhere else had a $1,000 refundable, and I told them that when they called me about it, and they have now changed that policy.
