    My mother moved in this facility 1 month ago. The med tech and aids are absolutely wonderful however way toooften they are working alone with no help leaving 1 med tech and 1 aid for approximately 30 residents. The facility itself is very nice and clean. The employees are all so nice!

    The first time I visited Churchland House, I knew this was where I wanted my 92 year old grandmother to reside. This facility has so much energy from the time you walk through the door and it starts with the staff. The facility is very clean, bright and welcoming. The staff members are professional and treat each resident and family member with respect and dignity. Leaving my grandmother here was the hardest decision I ever made, but I have peace of mind knowing she's well cared for here.

    I thank God everyday for finding Churchland House. Everyone on the staff at C.H. are my mothers guardian angels. Before residing at Churchland House, my moms health was deteriorating fast. Now it is like she has a new life. She is never alone and when she needs help, someone is always there. We can sleep well at night knowing that she is well taken care of. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
