meme9958: "I was a resident at Pincrest Gardens for over 9 months and it was horrible. There is not a call Bell system in the facility and I was told if I needed anything to yell and someone would come. Well a short time after they told me that they told me not to yell because I was waking up the other residents. There is no nurse on duty at all and I understand they can get away with that since it is assisted living. The food there is terrible and it is not served in a very clean a... (read more)

Kim S.: "My father, who recently passed, was a resident at The Haven @ Fuquay for a short time.

Bruce: "We visited Absolute Care Assisted Living. The care was probably good, but the place was older, and the inside appeared to be older. The rooms were fine. They had transportation and an activity room. The staff members I met were very nice."

Shirley96703550: "My aunt was in Oak Hill Living Center and this was strictly an assisted living facility. This place is extremely clean. She enjoyed being there as it has a home-like feel. You had to be pretty much able to do things for yourself, but they are giving her medications because she couldn’t see. The food was alright, but they are very accommodating with what she wants to eat. It was more like a home setting overall. Everyone knew everyone. She was there for nine years. "
