Assisted Living Reviews for The Phoenix at Greer

August 07, 2015

By FranklynJ501

I visited this facility

I recently visited the welcome center. The ladies were very nice and informative and really took their time to get to know me and my mom. I felt like a weight had been lifted off of me. It's going to be a beautiful place and management seems genuinely excited to make it a great facility. We are waiting on a response from the application for VA aid and attendance before signing for a reservation. I just hope there is still a suite open. She would be so happy there.
