    My husband is happy in a very nice one-bedroom apartment at Englewood Estates. The dining area is excellent. The staff is lovely and very helpful and allowed my husband to keep his two dogs. The people are very nice. The place is well run, in a desirable location, and meets all of our needs. It's a great place overall.
