I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the care my sister is receiving. She has Alzheimer’s and other than her difficulty remembering, she is in good physical shape. No family should have to deal with such a disease, but since we have no choice in this matter, it is nice to have a facility that takes care of the residents the way your staff does.

I know from my time spent in your facility that there were so many of you who touched my uncle's life. I can't tell you how proud I was to see such a wonderful caring and outgoing team of employees working together day after day. Thank you for a job well done and I know from the bottom of my heart that my uncle wouldn't have been as successful without your assistance.

Could not have been treated any better. Nurses and CNAs would get me my stuff when I needed it. Food was excellent. If I have to come to any of these places it is going to be this one or else I won't go.

Thank you for such a special day with the Christmas dinner and party. Thank you does not seem to cover all the blessings you brought to the residents and visitors. As I looked around, there were smiles, laughter, friends greeting friends and a joyous atmosphere that filled the home. The dinner was outstanding.
