A place to call Home
My mother has lived here for 2 1/2 years and she is very happy and content. Mom has made some dear friends with both the residents and the staff. They are so loving and caring to my Mom. If there is any concerns of any kind, I am contacted as soon as possible.
The nursing staff takes the time to know each resident personally and by name. The staff doctor's office is right next door to the Residence and he is available when needed. When he was concerned about a problem with my mother, he called me personally to explain his findings.
Over all, I would highly recommend this place. Food is good and with a lot of variety and choices. Daily activities, movie nights, crafts, family BBQs and birthday celebrations for the residents and out-side excursions to interesting places. I am so glad my Mom is there.
