I visited this facility

The Commons in Lincoln has a very expensive buy-in. That's not what my mother wants, and I don't think it's good enough. There's a lot of construction going on right now because they're building a nursing facility as well as a separate assisted living even though in all the apartments, people can have assisted living too. It's very pretty. It has a lot of land, you can walk around, plus it's very easily accessible to Route 2, which means it's easy for me to get there. The person who took me around was very nice. Everybody seemed very friendly. They had great facilities. If that weren't such an expensive buy-in place, that would've been my #1, and that doesn't include the monthly fees.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I'm at The Commons in Lincoln now. It is convenient to where I used to live. Also, they're planning to build a memory unit and skilled nursing, too. The staff's work attitude is very good. We have more things to do in a day. This afternoon, I went to two classes. Tomorrow, there would be a lecture by a professor.
