I visited this facility

I found a community to go to, but I'm not ready to go yet. The facility is called Andara. This is a very arty place, and I go in for art. This is also very contemporary, and I am very contemporary. I'm an old lady, and I am not interested in looking like I'm an old lady. The food gets an extra double A. The food is fabulous. I am a vegan, and I do not eat any animal products at all, and the chef came right up to me and said, "What do you want me to make for you?" and it was delicious, one of the best. They had a party a couple of weeks ago, and I went to that, and all the snacks fit into my diet perfectly, so that is one of the reasons I want to go.

I visited this facility

I had picked out Andara Senior Living for my mother, but then she decided not to move. That's where I was going to place my mother and my sister. They have very nice apartments. They have a very nice room for exercising. The prices weren't bad compared to two other places around. In fact, they've even dropped them.

They have a pool, a crafts room, a pub, and a dining room. Each apartment has its own washer and dryer. All the appliances are stainless steel, granite counter tops. It was an extremely nice place. We looked at other places, and I thought Andara would make a better fit for her.
