John: "We liked what we saw at John Knox Manor. They have been redoing some of the rooms, and they were really nice. People were very friendly. They have a place where they play games, cards, and different things. They also have a big flower garden out back where you can go out and plant your own plants if you want to. The lady who showed us the room said that they go on trips. We talked to some of the residents, and they were really pleased with it."
