    My father in law loved it here. The facility was always clean and the staff is very kind. We were always pleased to hear about the activities my father in law did here. He liked his neighbors and enjoyed walking around outside. Maybe the decor is a bit dated and I can understand some of the comments about the food not being fantastic, but if you’re looking for quality staff and cleanliness it’s a great place to send your loved one.

    Deeply disappointed in our decision to move my mother here. Food is terrible and they run out of it daily. There are residents that clearly belong in assisted living or nursing homes and not in an independent community. Things are not the way they were represented before moving in. The sidewalk outside the building is cracked and damaged and a danger to anyone walking on it.
