I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother-in-law is in Heritage Village at the Plains. It is very convenient for my husband's brother because he can go over and have dinner with his mom anytime that he wants to. The facility is very clean. They do what they say they will do. The have her sheets change and they clean of her apartment every week. I think they have a bus that takes them where they want to go. She's very happy there. I will recommend them to others.
