I got my mom into this community. They're good. My mom is really happy with them, loves the meals, and becomes acclimated more and more every day. It had been a real struggle to start because she is 95 years old. However, everything is working out fine. They offer a lot of nice things for her. The people are very, very nice and take care of her. She loves the way they clean her place, and it is really handy to have the laundry there. She is very happy, and I'm happy, too. They can sign up for trips and different activities. They have live music and games. My mom has a one-bedroom apartment that's much bigger than any of the other ones that I visited. It is nicer, though it is not as new. It's is an older place but it's immaculate, very clean, and has new carpeting and new paint. It has anything and everything my mom could possibly want. The people are nice.

It was very nice, and I liked it. The lady was very helpful and nice. I liked the vibe and the way they sit people for dinner to try to find companionship with people who are like-minded. I liked the activities they had scheduled. I would consider it.

I really loved this community, the staff was fantastic, and it was a little spruced up. The apartments were very nice, of a nice size, and with a nice stove and kitchen setup. They have a deck, and they had storage units.

The staff was nice, but it did not feel intimate. It didn't feel like Mom is going to get much care. The room felt a little older and didn't feel sunny and shiny. It didn't have too many people around.

We liked the feeling and the overall environment on the outside. When you’re looking in the windows, you can see a lot of the outside. The rooms were nice but a little older. We were looking for something with a little bit of brightness. Overall, we liked it. They had music, bingo, and craft activities. They had areas for sitting and visiting.

My family member ended up moving in. The staff is very good, and the rooms are actually pretty economical. They have a gym and a beauty salon, and their dining area is nice.

I liked it for my friend; I would live there myself. The meals looked very tasty. I liked that they have a 24-hour care. I also liked that it smelled very clean and fresh. I liked the rooms because they were very spacious and had a balconies. There wasn’t anything I didn’t like about it, except that it wouldn’t work for my friend because she couldn’t afford it unless long-term care would pay for part of it.

It was really nice, and the rooms looked nice, but my father-in-law just wanted something a little private and not as many people. The staff was very friendly. The facility was really nice; it was beautiful, and I thought the setting was really beautiful.

I put a deposit down. It's the one I like. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were larger than average. The food was very good; I had lunch there. The atmosphere was very nice and cheerful. The only thing that I'm not very happy with it is that they had limited meal time, and then there is planned seating, where you can't just sit wherever you want to sit. They're doing it for the purpose of head count, but I don't like the idea that lunch and dinner are one hour and you have to be there.

I visited and placed a deposit, but so far there was still a waiting list for the studio. I knew several people who lived there so I would have someone to talk to that I knew. It was nice, new, and I liked the atmosphere. They had a lot of things, too. There were a couple of people there that played the piano beautifully, and I really enjoyed classical music. I just like the look of the place. They had lots of windows to look outside and see the ducks that were floating in the pond. I could take my cat and he would be happy to look out the window at the back. I saw a one-bedroom unit, and I liked that a lot. It was nice and bright. There was window the cat could look out on. It also had a deck or patio. My visit was a good experience, and my daughter liked it very much. She seemed to think it was nice. It was close to where she was so she could come and visit on her day off. I liked it.

My mother cut her hand, and the doctor said that her mother was in this community, so my mom went right over, and I guess she really liked it; she is in there now. It’s clean, the walls look fine, and the carpeting is fine; it doesn’t need to be replaced. My mom said the food was OK. She talked to a few people, and they all seemed to like it. It was very convenient; it had a little shopping area across the street with places to eat, banks, and a grocery store.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I like the place and the tenant's here. For the most part, the staff is fine. I'm not exactly happy with the kitchen staff. The service is slow, but the food tastes good. The dining room is very neat. I have a one bedroom apartment, and I like it. We always have something going on here. We have field trips, and we can just sign up. I always participate in activities here. The activities were just what I expected. I am not disappointed with it. I have been here for more than a year, and I am satisfied with my stay.

I actually sing with a group that sings for the residents of different senior living communities. There was a time when we sang here. I noticed that the staff there was pretty good. The rooms there were small but adequate.They had what they called shared apartments which had been in our price range. The shared apartments had two rooms. You would have a roommate in the bedroom with whom you would share the living room, dining room, and kitchen. When I went there to sing, they had snacks that people could have. They also seemed to have a fair number of activities that they put on the calendar. They had spacious and beautiful grounds too. The place was indeed very nice.
