Assisted Living Reviews for Library Terrace Assisted Living

December 05, 2016

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

Library Terrace Assisted Living has activities like crafts. It has a little room where they do puzzles, and they have exercise equipment. It's a small community, so they can give the residents more attention. Dad has a 1-bedroom which is very nice. It has 2 closets, and the size is good. The bathroom has a nice cabinet and bars to help him get up from his wheelchair. The neighborhood is nice, too. There are religious services, and they also have laundry services.
