An unsatisfactory grade
My relative spent a week and found this residence to be unsatisfactory. It did not provide the environment for social interaction and he found the food to be very unappealing. At a time when depression among seniors is a recognized issue, it is surprising that this was not a focus for this organization. Overall my relative did not feel that much care was invested in making the experience of living at this residence an appealing one. It was designed to provide "existence living". I do not live in this community. My comments are based on what was related to me by my relative and not on any vested interest.
A place to call home.
Residents are happy and workers are friendly.
The premises are welcoming and clean.
