    The Renaissance has come a long way. There have been changes made over the past year or so and this community has definitely improved. The lighting is better and the employees' morale seems to be much better too. The Renaissance is clean and maintained. The staff is kind and helpful. They have activities, socials, and outdoor functions planned for their residents.
