“I have been at this facility several times for meetings. I have to say it is very clean, well decorated and the residents were smiling. Every staff member I have interacted with was very friendly. I had the opportunity to view an activities calendar that residents can take part in daily – it was very impressive. If I had a family member looking for a supportive living facility I would have no problems recommending this one.”

My mother is a resident there now and has been for six months and is happy as a clown. They have alot of activities and things to do. Hey and if you love to watch movies . They have a theater.
