My father-in-law was here for just four months, but he had a wonderful experience here. The staff was very kind and caring and he enjoyed his time here immensely. The place itself is warm and inviting and never, ever felt like a "nursing home". There were activities and most of all, a feeling of respect among everyone - staff, administrators, residents and their families - for the service and sacrifice of the veterans here.I thank them all for making the last few months such pleasant ones.
