Independent Living Reviews for Mill Creek Manor

July 24, 2018

By Ida

I am/was a resident of this facility

We have already moved into Amara Place. All the other clients seem to be very friendly and helpful. The staff got a big growth spurt at the same time we moved in. We eat three meals a day, and it has been good food. They take trips to stores, they have crafts and games, and they have a monthly friends and family night. We visited several different places, but Amara Place was the one that we felt met our needs.
