They seem to be really good. My Grandmother has been there since Jan when she had a stroke. She now needs full time care. At 90 she seems to be recovering well. The staff is very nice and on the spot with everything that is needed. The place is clean and does not smell like a nursing home. They have a nice property that is well maintained with trees, shrubs, grass and flowers.My grandmother really likes the food, 3 good sized meals a day.They are very welcoming to family coming to visit.As nursing care places go this one is pretty good.
