Porter Hills Village was huge with long and narrow hallways, but otherwise, it was nice and had all kinds of things for people and different arrangements for everybody, so it just depends on what you want. The staff was very nice.
My mother-in-law is in the independent part of Porter Hills Village. It's a great place. She loves it. We have friends whose parents have been there and besides, around this area it is a very known place. So we have come across it through word of mouth, it has been there for a long while, and they have a great reputation. The staff is very nice. She has an apartment, and it is nicer than I ever had when I was living in an apartment. It is very nice. My mother-in-law likes the people there. She likes the activities. She loves the food. It has a courtyard, and she is able to have her little pet there. It was just the best fit for her, and she is very happy there. They're all very independent there and they could come and go as they please. She has made friends. I know she plays a lot of cards, participates in book clubs, and all that kind of stuff in this place. It is a very secure place. I would certainly recommend this facility. Out of all of the ones around, it is very nice. It is not the fanciest, but it is very nice. It has a lot of good qualities. It is a community, and you can go there from independent, to the assisted, to the nursing, and to hospice. It is all within one area.
