I am a friend or relative of a resident
This facility has greatly improved over the years. Their expansion projects have increased to allow for many different types of living situations. The staff has always been very friendly and I tend to not get the "nursing home" feeling when I enter here. Everything is typically very clean and it doesn't smell like a nursing home either. The planned activities I have observed for the residents are always very well planned and fun. The medical staff seem to know what they are doing and special requests from family are important to them. The landscaping is beautiful and the facilities are nice. This facility is constantly expanding allowing it to cater to more individuals. The social community is growing very rapidly here and my aunt does not feel like she is cut off from the world. After many bad assisted living experiences, this is one that I am finally comfortable with. I know that my loved one is in good hands.

I visited this facility
I visited this nursing home facility once with my grandmother and my father because my grandmother is getting older and will most likely be needing to move into a nursing home facility in the near future. I had heard of the facility before because I used to have a friend who worked there in the dining room. We took a tour throughout the facility and the place was somewhat nice. The receptionist that sits at the front of the facility wasn't too friendly, but most of the other members of the staff seemed pretty nice. I liked the fact that the facility is set up in two different areas- one area is for residents that can still walk/move and go downstairs to enjoy dinner every night, and one area is for residents that can't walk/move far so they have a small dining room right outside of the rooms so that they don't have to go far for dinner. I know that when people get older they have problems remembering things and they have poor judgement, and the staff worried me when they told us a story about how one of the ladies in the facility went underneath her bed and ate an orange fragrance dish that was supposed to help with the smell of the room because she wet the bed. It made me worried that the staff wasn't really paying special attention to residents and their certain needs. All in all, the place seemed like a pretty decent facility.

I visited this facility
I was once a volunteer at this facility. I volunteered not because I had to, but because I love helping to take care of the elderly. The staff was very good to the residents. The facilities were top notch, it didn't smell funny. I usually helped with bingo or just talked with lonely elderly people. I brought my dog millie one time, who is now deceased. Another time, I brought my guitar. I was also taking guitar lessons at the time. I didn't see anyone get neglected either. My only complaint is that the food was mediocre.
