There's a number of things that were in our consideration why we chose the facility. Location to us and proximity was important. We're building a home and that was only 15 miles away, so proximity was probably a primary. Also just as important of course was her comfortableness with the place. The way in which the people treated her prior to arrival. The staff were forthcoming and professional. They were providing any kind of detail we needed. Since they were used to receiving people from the local area, they would send a team of people to ones homes and pickup their belongings. You actually pay for the cost of moving them right into the building. And since we were out of town, they offered to reimburse us up to $1100 for the moving expenses. All we need is to present the receipt. They were such a blessing! It was something we were not expecting.Absolutely grandmom will be happy there. It's a friendly place. It had apartments that were larger than others once that you've seen other places. It was nice brief, easy get to and very pleasant looking. There is an atrium that was quite large and a waterfalls to help people with the mood. It was rather a large place so you're not confined to a small group of people and it was a nice thing for grandmom to make friends especially people within her age bracket. There were a great number of activities taking place. She likes to play cards and different card games and so there was a scheduled tournament of such for it. She was able to look at different rooms were residents were actually in them, so they weren't empty. There was furniture in it and it was comfortable living there.They also have an actual beauty facility. Well you pay for it but that's fine because she was used to paying for her hair.It was also important that she had an individual assigned to her as an extra service to help her in getting to the dining area, come down the stairs or other issues. What I also like was that everybody is provided with like a lifeline device that they wear around their neck. So all of these things really proved to her (and us) that the place was experienced, kind and responsive and that just went up to her over the top.

My mom is a redident in this facility, and I would highly recommend it to anyone in search of a very caring staff,and administrators, beautiful world charm atmosphere, and lovely place for their retirement yrs. I could not have chosen a better home for her if I searched everywhere! Whoever is commenting on smells needs to get their senses tested!

The smell upon entering your facility was very undesirable and I think you know what odor I'm speaking of. This problem really needs to be addressed. I'm sure I'm not the only one to notice.
