Donna000616: "We visited a friend at Luther Ridge -- it was more of a HUD type -- and she loves it there. They have little apartments in the building. She has a kitchenette, bedroom, and a sitting area. In another section of the building, they had a community area, and I thought it was a very nice idea. I thought it was a very nice setup for someone who was alone. "

Donna000616: "Providence was very nice, they have very caring people, and the residents there all seemed to be quite happy.

The rooms were comfortable, and they’re pet friendly, which was nice. "
