Icansing4U2: "Greenbriar is inviting from the minute the doors slide open. The decor and warmth inside are a delight to the eye. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the activities are in abundance. I wouldn't mind living here when I grow older. Greenbriar gets a 5+ star from me. Others cant compare. The staff has been here for year's. That alone is a testimonial to Greenbriar. Disgruntled employees dont stay. Keep up the great work Cheryl. "

Joan: "I didn't like Wyoming Manor because it was so busy, very noisy outside, and on a busy street. We actually drove past it because we couldn't even find it. When we went inside, it wasn't bad. I thought the place was small because as soon as you walk in, you could smell the food; the cafeteria was right there as soon as you go in. The staff was excellent and very helpful. All of the them were right there in the front. They talked to me and said they didn't have any beds availab... (read more)

Sandy: "I visited Tiffany Court at Kingston. It was OK, and adequate, but my dad didn’t enjoy it too much. The staff was very nice, the location was very good, and the grounds were very nicely kept. The rooms were a little tight, and a little small, but adequate. It’s worth checking out definitely."

Curtis S.YPKIZ: "My aunt has been in Fernwood Manor for about eight weeks now, and she says that she’s going to stay here for a while. It’s all on one floor with pretty long the hallways. If my aunt wants to exercise, she could walk down to the end of the hallway, turn around and come back a couple of times, and she’s good to go. The food is made on-site, so it's not the stuff that’s delivered nor processed food, and they’re allowed to have snacks, as well. She does bingo almost every other ... (read more)

selly0618: "The facility was so friendly! The staff were very friendly. It seemed like a place that I would feel comfortable putting my grandparents in. I spent time in the dining area with the elderly, and we shared stories about their life. It seems that they were in a happy space in the place they lived. I could imagine that it's very uncomfortable living in a home like that. But this place was very friendly. They had their own apartments one of the lady said, however I didn't see th... (read more)

The town has 89 days of annual precipitation and there's an average of 45 inches of rain and 36 inches of snow per year, both higher than the national average.
