    After my mother’s passing, it was hard for my father to find his place in the world. We knew we’d found the place the moment we walked into Governor’s Port. From their workout room to the organized activities, the artwork in the hallways, and the bright, airiness of the apartments. The kind, supportive staff sealed the deal. Dad was home.

    After a thorough examination of surrounding area residences for the elderly, my Mother chose to live at Governor’s Port. Without exception the staff was supportive, patient, caring, and professional. They went above and beyond to make her comfortable and included in activities. The food was good, the facilities well maintained and as bright and cheery as the staff.
