Reviews of Gorham House | INDEPENDENT LIVING
MarianneCFSEW May 11, 2016
I visited this facility
They're very nice at Gorham House, had activities all of the time, and allowed volunteers to come in and do certain activities. I would recommend them because they are friendly, allow you to have freedom, and has roomy apartments. You have a choice of one-bedroom or two-bedroom, and they're big enough for independent living. You can go into assisted living there.
