My sister is in American House. We chose it because my mother lived there for 10 years, and my brother's father-in-law lived there for 12 years. It's not a new place, but it's clean, and they redo the carpet and paint every time somebody moves. It smells fine, not like old people. They serve three meals a day, make the bed, pick up the trash every day, and strip the bed and change the towels once a week. You can have your laundry done at an extra charge. They have all kinds of activities. The food looks pretty good, and when she remembers to go down for a meal, she eats a lot better than when she was alone. The staff is very nice, very friendly, and very helpful. It's not the most expensive place, but for the money, the care is very good.
