My brother and I went on a tour of your facility in mid December 2013. I was impressed by the décor, the rooms and the staff that we met. Every question we had was answered professionally and you seem to have everything covered, from rides to church and grocery stores to help with prescriptions etc.

Fortunately our mother is doing much better and is still able to live in her condo for now. As beautiful as your facility is, it is always a huge transition for seniors to up and move somewhere new. So to have her able to stay in the home she has had for the last 8 years is in my eye a very good thing.

If I had a suggestion, it would be to have available some form of counselling for the seniors who are transitioning from there homes, where most have lived for many years, to a facility for assisted living.
