    Review by Daughter Apr 10th, 2014
    Family or friend of a resident

    My mother was in several ALFs, and I wasn't really happy with any of them. When it came time to find a place for my father, I was lucky to find Amalia Gardens. It is absolutely spotless, and the staff is wonderful. They helped me throw a 90th birthday party for my dad, and treat him every day with love and respect. I feel they were heaven sent.
