Blaine811035: "Easy Living Country Estates would have been too overwhelming for my mother. It looked like an old hotel building with 4 floors. It was a big place, but it didn't offer anything for dementia. It was an absolutely beautiful place with a big atrium and a big indoor garden. The place was spotless and well taken care of. The rooms were very nice. The staff showed us a private room and a double occupancy room. They were clean and well maintained. "
