Marcia2: "Hidden Peace Specialized Living Service is gorgeous. They got separate men and women. They had lots of assistance there to help them out. It's next to a horse farm and people just get out there and there are all kinds of activities that they do there, but that was out of sight too. It's a comfortable looking place and I was comfortable in there. "

Everything was all in one room, and they had a maintenance fee of like $2,500 upfront which was non-refundable, and that was quite a bit to come up with t... (read more)
