Maple Knoll Village was very nice, but they have a 3 to 6 month waiting list. They had a lot of activities for somebody who were more independent. I thought it would be wonderful because they had woodworking shops. They were in the beautiful property. I had a very good impression. The people seemed happy there. They had a lot of different levels. We talked to one gentleman. He had lived there for maybe 14 years. He and his wife moved there as independent living, but then his wife became sick, and they were able to get kind of assisted living help in their independent living apartment up to a point where she needed more help. Then she was actually in a skilled nursing room separate from him, but she is still in the same facility, and he visits her every day.
It was a really nice property. It had a beautiful garden with a little waterfalls -- a little fountain. It also had a Montessori pre-school on site. So, the residents who were more on independent living could go over and volunteer with the children if they wanted. We loved that property, it was just that there was a wait list, and my dad was kind of beyond the point where he wouldn't be able to do a lot of the things because he wasn't really going to be in the independent living anymore, unfortunately.
Maple Knoll Village had apartments, townhouses and villas. Their villas had garages than could be used for cars or as workshops. They had four washers and dryers. It had two bedrooms which was really nice. It had a full size refrigerator and felt like more like a home than an apartment. I loved this facility.
