Assisted Living Reviews for Franciscan Court

October 09, 2014

By jerjean

I am a friend or relative of resident

We can't say enough good things about Franciscan Court. Our relative lived there for over 5 years. He was very happy there. He met many new friends. The staff was very good to him. He had his own studio apartment, which gave him his privacy when he wanted, and when he wanted to visit with other residents, there were many common areas where they could visit. He was always happy with the meals that were provided. He especially liked sitting by the pond and watching the fish. That was very peaceful. They have parties celebrating different occasions which all the residents really like. We would, and have, recommended this facility to anyone who is looking for a place for a loved one.
