It was all great; it was just more expensive. The staff was good. Everything was good about Verandah. It was just a little more expensive; plus it was more out of the way for our family. Mom just really liked the other place better. Their dining room was excellent. They are geared more towards all kinds of denominations. So every Sunday, they have different denominations, and that was one of the main reasons my mom chose the other place. It was a brand new place, so it was really outstanding, and I guess that's why it was more expensive too. I have never seen anything as nice as that.

As part of our all-inclusive community, we do provide transportation to places of worship on Sundays, but also offer transportation daily to local shops, various appointments and any other needs our residents may have. In addition, residents enjoy a variety of amenities in their month rent including 3 chef-prepared meals daily, wellness and fitness classes, personal training, swimming pool and spa, access to The Graywood Country Club and much more. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance to you or your mother.

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.
