1 review
Crystal8: "I've already got my father in an assisted living facility in North Carolina -- Somerset Court. It is very nice, especially the people who worked to have a private room, which is what my father's request was. He wanted to be in a room by himself. Also, he is a big TV watcher and, although they have direct TV in the facility, he is used to having more, so they allowed him more channels. He's been there since Father's Day, so in the three weeks he has been there, it has changed... (read more)

Caring98787250: "Heritage Oaks was very depressing, very dark, and very close. It wasn't an open, spacious place, and it was not very big for the number of people they had. It was not well lighted at all, and the colors that they chose for the rooms and hallways were not good. The rooms were small, but no smaller than the fancier places; they were about the same size. You're just not going to find a big, spacious room in all of the assisted living facilities. Their list of activities was pos... (read more)
