Resident and Family Testimonials


So far, this place has been absolutely phenomenal! I’d give them top marks in every category, they’ve been great. The staff is all friendly and professional, and they give the residents a lot of individual care and attention. During the tour they really take the time to make sure all your questions and concerns are answered, and welcome you back to tour any number of times. I really like the layout and set-up of the community for memory care patients specifically. It is very easy to navigate, with no elevator trips involved. I also like that they have many small dining areas that end up being like family units, as opposed to large single dining rooms that most communities use.
