    My wife stayed in the skilled nursing center for over 3 weeks. We could not have asked for a better facility. It is very clean, well lit and attractive. All members of the staff at all levels are friendly and caring. The therapy technicians take special interest in patients and are very thorough with their care. The nursing staff is especially friendly and professional. Any problems that we encountered, very few, were immediately addressed and corrected to our satisfaction. I highly recommend Fountain View Village for skilled nursing care.

    Beginning with the first call from Julie we felt genuineness and sincerity with our needs and concerns. She is an exceptional lady. We came for tour and was impressed with the personnel. We spoke with the residents and listened to all of their comments. We watched and observed. We chose this community after researching several in different areas and states. The caregivers, medics, dining hall and front end personnel are very attentive to moms needs.( I don't have enough room to mention all of the names) I would rate this 4.8 star. I encountered 1 person that was unprofessional and the dining hall chairs were sticky. Mom says she likes everybody, the food and activities.

    As soon as you enter this community you certainly notice its size. With many buildings on its beautifully landscaped campus it can be a little confusing to find your way around, but once you do, it size seems to shrink away to a smaller homelike feel.
    Geared more toward a senior who wants to have people their own age around and great activities and may need a little help here and there its perfect considering you can add services and no one else can tell, which is hugely important to a lot of seniors.
    Another building houses a nice memory care area, although rooms are good sized it does have a slight institutional feel to it, however the warmth of the staff helps. I have been to this area more than a couple times to find residents just left sitting around with out any activities to help keep them busy, and they seemed to be a little understaffed for a memory care unit, but it could have been a day with a sick call, or staff may be on their much needed break as well.
    Pricing is good and residents and families generally are in good spirits, which is maybe the best indicator around.

    The Woodmark at Sun City is one of my most favorite senior living communities in AZ. The Woodmark is a gorgeous community inside and out and the staff and residents really seem to take pride in the community – it’s not every day you see residents excited to show off their assisted living home to family and visitors, but at The Woodmark, this is a common occurrence, which is an awesome thing to witness!

    The community offers Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care. The care team/staff members within each care level work wonderfully with the residents, always doting on the residents. The residents seem to be easily able to form friendships with fellow residents and they really seem to enjoy participating in the activities and events offered on a day to day basis.

    The Woodmark is one of those communities where it is nearly impossible to encompass all of its greatness in a review. I very highly encourage that you visit The Woodmark and see just how beautiful it is first hand!

    Family or friend of a current/past resident

    After breaking her hip my mother required a stay in an assisted living facility. We had been concerned about her living alone and saw that she was becoming more socially isolated as she was driving less and many of her friends were in the same situation. We looked at facilities with an eye on transitioning from assisted to independent living within the same facility. I was really depressed after the first few facilities we toured. Yes, they were clean and the staff was pleasant, but they just had that "nursing home" feel.

    Then we toured Andara. Even though it was almost brand new it was being renovated (this was during the transition from Arte to Andara). The facility looks more like a luxury resort than a Senior facility while maintaining a feeling of warmth. Every staff member we interacted with was courteous, professional, and caring. We couldn't sign the paperwork fast enough!

    The first day Mom was in Assisted they sent an "Ambassador" who took her to the beautiful dining room for lunch, sat her at her table and introduced her to her group of friends. That night I stopped by at 6:45 pm to visit thinking Mom would be back in her room since she went to dinner at 4:45. There she sat in the dining room with her table of friends, all of them smiling and chatting away. I left thinking it was good for her to socialize and went home with a smile on MY face.

    Andara has in house PT and OT so mom was able to complete that without having to be transported elsewhere. The therapist was so caring and compassionate and constantly communicated with me. I voiced my concern that Mom needed to venture out a bit more and had encouraged her to go to the exercise classes on the days she didn't have therapy to no avail. Deanna the therapist picked up on this and told Mom she should go exercise on the off days. Guess who went the next day! Again, another opportunity to socialize.

    When it came time to be released from Assisted we had a long "family council". Of course Mom hated the thought of giving up her home. But we asked her why she wanted to return to a life of eating alone everyday? We got her to just "look" at some apartments on the Independent side. When she saw how clean, modern and spacious they were she said she would "give it a try"!!

    One year later we know we made the right choice. Mom is so happy there. The entire staff is so courteous and professional. They truly care about each resident. Andara is smaller than other facilities so it is easier to keep tabs on everyone. One day I was concerned when I could not reach Mom by phone several times. I called the friendly front desk lady who assured me she had just seen Mom go by on her way to Bingo! That's another thing--Mom swore she had no interest in Bingo--now she goes to that every day! So between walking to 3 meals daily in the Dining room, Bingo upstairs daily and daily exercise she gets up and moves much more than she did at home. There are plenty of activities and field trips outside the facility to appeal to everyone. Residents can be as active as they desire.

    Our final hurdle was getting Mom to surrender her car. Again, we urged her to just "try" the shuttle that takes residents to a different shopping facility each day. She loved it. Again, going with others as opposed to going alone. Much safer too which relieves her children. Andara also has a "limo" (actually a bright red Cadillac!) which can be scheduled to take Mom to doctor appointments when one of us is not available.

    I cannot say enough kind things about Andara. I feel Mom is in a much better place socially, physically, and mentally than she was a year ago. Please tour this facility if you are looking for Senior Living for your loved one!

    I recently took a close family friend to view the Amethyst for her father for whom she was looking for senior living. Up until our visit to Amethyst, she had been on 8 different tours of communities around the Glendale/Peoria vicinity. To that point, nothing had measured up to the requirements she had in a senior living community for her father. She turned to me because of my experience with senior living communities and I immediately thought of the Amethyst since it is just 2-3 miles from the family’s home. Because I had visited Amethyst several times, of which each time was a complete joy, I had high hopes for her reaction to be a positive one.

    We got to Amethyst and were immediately received by such a warm and friendly welcome. The staff member who I had scheduled the tour with on the phone the day prior was well prepared and spoke to both my friend and I by name. She introduced herself and throughout the entire tour, she was extremely friendly. She spoke highly of the community – and not in a way that sounded like a sales pitch, but in a truly genuine manner – she seemed to really love the facility and the residents within it. She took the time to answer every single question and concern with very informed and compassionate answers – our tour actually went 45 minutes over the suggested time – She understood that this was a tough decision for my friend and that my friend was only looking for the best for her father. The staff member was empathetic to my friend’s feelings and to the situation. I think my favorite part of the tour was when the staff member asked my friend about her father, what he was like, any hobbies that he enjoyed, etc. She then introduced my friend and I to several residents with whom her father had something in common – such as her father was a Veteran and the lady introduced us to another resident who was also a Veteran and actually fought in the same war my friend’s father fought in.

    The level of compassion and empathy that I saw that day was truly exceptional. Needless to say, my friend thought so to and moved her father in the following month. She truly felt as if she were doing her good by her father in placing him at the Amethyst – as did I. This was by far my favorite visit to this community and I would recommend it to anyone who is involved in the trying and difficult search for the perfect senior living community.

    If you are looking for fancy, exquisite, resort-style senior living in a gorgeous Scottsdale setting, then at Andara, you have come to the perfect place. Andara is truly 5-Star Senior Living in every option, amenity, quality of care, activity, and service provided to the residents. Andara offers Assisted and Independent Living options that are unbelievable.

    Facility: You walk into a massive, gorgeous lobby that is backed by a breathtaking wrap-around staircase. The lobby is full of sitting areas and comfortable furniture for socialization. The facility is stunningly decorated with welcoming colors and beautiful artwork. It seems like every piece of décor, piece of artwork, piece of furniture, etc. was perfectly placed in the space it was meant for and the entire community is kept white glove-test-worthy clean – almost uncomfortably clean, like you are afraid to take a step in fear of dirtying up the facility, but for some reason, it still feels homey.

    There are many services and options available to assist the residents in living a care-free, active, and social lifestyle. The community is pet-friendly. There are many social areas throughout, including an activity room with a pool table and poker/card tables. A community kitchen with private dining, where residents and their families can cook private meals to enjoy together. There is also a well-equipped beauty salon/spa, a fun art center, well-stocked library a movie theater, an awesome fitness center, a computer center with free Wi-Fi, A gorgeous fine-dining-restaurant-style dining room, and so much more. There is also a beautiful skywalk where residents can walk between buildings – it’s perfect for indoor powerwalking if the weather outside is uncooperative. There are also many walking paths, a charming courtyard, cozy outdoor sitting areas, a welcoming pool/hot tub area, etc. for the residents to enjoy the fresh air and outdoors.

    Side note: the community also offers the residents a covered outdoor parking structure to keep their cars safe from the elements.

    There are quite a few different Independent Living and Assisted Living floorplans to choose from, each option offering a spacious and beautifully designed living space for the residents to call home. The floorplans in Assisted Living consist of different sized studios, all containing either kitchenettes or full kitchens. The Independent Living floorplans include 1 and 2 bedroom options, some with dens and patios, and all with full kitchens and other great

    Staff/Quality of Care: Amazing. The care team at Andara, no matter the department, is always placing the needs and safety of the residents first above all else. They are wonderful in interacting with the residents, they are very caring and seem to really enjoy working at Andara, which is a very refreshing thing to see in a senior living community. When a resident moves in, they are assigned a personal care plan which helps to offer personalized one-on-one care based on a resident’s specific needs.

    Residents: The residents seem to really love living here. They seem as if they feel very comfortable and at home within the community. All of the residents seem to get along very well – it is rare to see a resident sitting or walking by themselves as they usually do everything together.

    Food Service: The food service at Andara is just like fine dining in a beautiful restaurant. The dining options are menu-style, offering a variety of delicious and beautifully presented meals. There are also snacks available at all times for residents. What I really appreciate is that the dining staff/chefs chat with the residents and hold regularly scheduled meetings to determine the types of meals the residents would like to have incorporated into the menus as well as to gain suggestions on how the dining team can make the dining experience even better for the residents. They appear to really care about the residents suggestions and implement as many of those suggestions as possible.

    Andara is a wonderful, breathtaking community – true resort-style living.

    The Woodmark at Sun City is one of my favorite senior living communities in all of Arizona. Not only is it located in the 5-star senior living city of Sun City, but it is located in a part of Sun City that is incredibly convenient. Anything a resident could want is close by. The Woodmark offers Independent & Assisted Living and Memory Care and the care they provide is incredible. The staff members at the Woodmark are some of the most patient, caring people. The way they interact with each resident is personable and loving – the employee morale seems very high and the staff members truly seem to love their jobs, which is often, sadly, a rare occurrence in senior living.

    The facility is gorgeous, you really have to see it firsthand to really soak it all in. Whenever I visit I don’t want to leave – I want to move right in with the residents and stay put. The grounds are always impeccably landscaped and clean. There are many sitting areas and walking paths available so the residents can enjoy the fresh outdoors. There is also a greenhouse for those residents who enjoy gardening. The interior of the community is breathtaking. You can see that they put so much pride and dedication into the design of the building. The facility is always kept so clean and it always smells great. The common areas are stunning with tall ceilings, beautifully painted walls, beautiful flooring, a striking staircase, and lots of windows allowing natural light to flood in, and beautiful décor throughout. There are so many sitting areas full of comfy, cozy furniture for the residents to socialize with family, friends, and fellow residents. There is one sitting area with a homey fireplace as the focal point. It is a very inviting area that residents and visitors love. The dining room is probably my favorite part of the facility, it is absolutely elegant while remaining comfortable.

    The Woodmark provides many great activities, services, and amenities to help the residents remain active and live a fulfilling life that enriches the mind, body, and spirit. There is a lovely library stocked full of books, a large fitness center, activity/game rooms, a salon and a gorgeous spa offering so many services for pampering and relaxation. There is an adorable little 50’s style diner/café.

    The food service at the Woodmark is 5-star fine-dining all the way. The menu options are plentiful and the food service staff is committed to designing the menu based on the tastes and desires of the residents. The chefs are in constant communication with the residents getting their input on the types of dishes and foods they would like to see incorporated into the menu. The residents are free to make requests and menu items can easily be cooked to order. The food service team accommodate the residents in every way possible.

    The Woodmark at Sun City is not only a MUST SEE, but you’ll see during your visit, that it’s also a MUST STAY. Go and speak with the happy residents, observe the capable, caring staff, see all that the Woodmark has to offer – you won’t be disappointed.

    Fountain View Village is really an exceptional community. The dining room is one of my favorite areas – the tall, open windows show off beautiful Arizona landscape and the atmosphere is so relaxing and comfortable, making it the perfect place to socialize and enjoy amazing food service. The menu options are incredible, satisfying all types of appetites and lifestyle diet regimens. The kitchen/dining staff keep the dining area incredibly clean and they cater to the residents needs during mealtimes, while serving meals on 5-star-restaurant-worthy dressed tables.

    There are many common areas for the residents to roam freely and socialize with visitors and fellow residents. There is a beautiful library stocked with books, comfortable furniture, and a relaxing fireplace for chilly desert nights. There are actually several fireplaces throughout the community for the residents to enjoy. There is also a wonderful activity room with a bar area and pool table. There are several tables where the residents can play bingo, card/board games or enjoy craft time.

    The services and amenities are endless, if you have a loved one who is looking to stay busy and active, then look no further! Fountain View has salon/barber services, a theater, a cute deli/bistro area, a swimming pool and fitness center, a lovely chapel for religious services, a private dining room for special family get-togethers, and so much more.

    The care team is exceptional in catering to the residents individual needs, offering each and every resident one-on-one care and attention that shows the residents love, dignity, and respect.

    I visited Emerald Springs again just last month and I was very impressed by the positive changes I noticed that had taken place since my previous visit. While this used to be a community I would not recommend to anyone, I am beginning to quickly change my opinion. Here’s why…

    Facility: The facility has made a complete turnaround since gaining new management. What was once a filthy, stained, dusty mess had turned into a bright, open, and spacious area that was very welcoming. One of the first things I noticed was that I wasn’t sneezing – during my prior visit, there was so much dust everywhere that I could not stop sneezing, it was awful. However, now, the dust was gone and my allergies remained unscathed. Everything looked to be in good working order. I did not see any maintenance issues or safety concerns. The overall feel of the community was now inviting and I wasn’t counting the minutes until I could finally leave. This time around I was able to focus on connecting with the residents instead of being preoccupied with the condition of the facility.

    Residents: The residents seemed very comfortable and happy. One lady told me that she had moved in recently and that she felt so welcomed by the residents and staff from the very first day. She said that everyone has been so helpful in showing her the lay of the land.

    Staff/Quality of Care: The staff members made it a point to call the residents by name. They seemed committed to provided one-on-one care and they never seemed rushed when interacting with a resident. I was very impressed with the level of care and attention provided to the residents.

    Activities: They offer many events and activities that family members are encouraged to attend. There are also volunteer opportunities available to residents who like to contribute and keep busy.

    Food: The food always looks and smells delicious. There is a plethora of options to satisfy the palate each resident.

    The quality of service at the Inn at Amethyst is truly outstanding. I took a friend's grandmother to view the facility, and though she was a little nervous at first, the staff were so personable and made her feel very welcome. We joined in an activity they were having and she had the greatest time socializing and making new friends. Following the activity, we enjoyed dinner in the dining room, and she fell in love with the meatloaf gravy and mashed potatoes. She said that it was absolutely the epitome of a home cooked meal. She said the food alone was worth making the move to the facility. When it was time to leave, I practically had to pull her out of there! I was incredibly happy with how the staff made her feel so welcome. They almost instantly put any anxiety she may have been feeling to rest by introducing her to residents and getting her involved with the activities. They gave her an idea of what a typical day living there would be like, and I think that really helped her to feel more comfortable with the impending transition from her own home to her assisted living home. She realized that her life there was not going to impose the boring and sedentary lifestyle she had been afraid of. Instead she found that the Inn at Amethyst supports and encourages a very active and healthy lifestyle and they going even further in this support by offering residents a wide variety of different activities to choose from each month. She really fell in love with the Inn at Amethyst and I was very impressed with the quality of service and care that I observed.

    Review by Donna, Doting Daughter
    Family or friend of a current/past resident

    My 96 year old father was living in another local retirement community. When it came time to renew the lease, the price of his apartment was going up dramatically, so I decided to compare where he was living to other facilities. I found Andara(Arte at the time) and it was a much more affordable community. While it was price that motivated me to move him at a very healthy 93, it is obvious now that I did the right thing.

    First, Andara is a smaller more intimate community. The whole staff is very attentive to my father's needs and treat him with dignity and respect. When I am not in Scottsdale, I can rely on Mary, the Executive Director, to give me a call if she or one of the staff become concerned about my dad. I am able to then address the situation. It has given me peace of mind. There is also a new quality care program available through ComForcare with qualified people to assist dad in many different ways. I have chosen the Good Morning/Good Evening service where they check in on him twice a day/7 days, and so far he is very pleased. You pay by the visit and not the hour.Dad does not want someone there for a whole hour so this has really been worth it!

    Secondly, the food is excellent! Chef John and his staff prepare meals with FRESH ingredients and no repetitive, frozen, "institutionalized" foods are served. Our family often joins dad for the delicious Sunday brunches and we have even opted to enjoy Easter brunch there instead of going out each year. Dad always says there is plenty of variety.

    Thirdly, the activities are numerous. Dad enjoys the nightly movie in the theater and puzzle room, but there is so much more to do. Being Catholic, he also appreciates receiving communion at Andara on Weds when local church people visit and having his blood pressure taken weekly at the wellness clinic. Also, transportation is available to special events(which are planned) or just to go shopping. Dad gets a ride to church every week.

    Our family is more than delighted with the move to Andara, but it is my father whose opinion matters most and he enjoys living there.

    My Mother moved to Andara this past yr after shopping around with her 3 children at various independent living centers in Scottsdale and Phoenix. She was too isolated living alone and didn't eat well. My mom fought moving from her beautiful condo, but after some coaxing, she finally agreed how nice it would be to make friends, and be more active.

    I'm writing this because Andara has been more than we ever hoped for. My Mother is SO happy, and has made numerous close friendships with many residents. The residents are lovely, kind and very welcoming. The entertainment is truly amazing several times weekly before dinner in Josephine s Lounge. Don't let the white table cloth dining room, and leather bound menus fool you....you can dine on gourmet type dishes, or have a cheeseburger, which is wonderful!
    The continental breakfast served daily is incredible, with the best home made fruit pastries I've ever tasted!

    Staff is friendly, compassionate and bends over backwards to make everyone happy. The facility itself can be compared to a beautiful cruise ship, with incredible libraries, theatre and beauty salon.
    I cannot recommend Andara more highly.Dancing, fun, Bingo, Wii Bowling, shopping trips and town car service is complimentary. Our family is so thankful to have found Andara. We know our mom is safe, happy, and honestly more active than we are now!

    Review by Laurence, dedicated son
    Family or friend of a current/past resident

    My mother moved to Andara from a retirement community in St. Louis in march of 2013. She passed away in June of this year. She lived independently in an apartment for all but the last month or so of her life when, due to some health issues, she moved to assisted living at Andara. My mom had the usual concerns moving to a new place but her fears disappeared almost immediately because of the kindness and attention of the incredibly talented and committed staff. I will not attempt to name everyone because I am sure I will miss someone. The entire group is focused on making sure that the residents are treated with the utmost respect and make every effort to accommodate the specific needs and desires of the guests.
    I was impressed with many things so I will just mention a couple.
    First, when my mother first moved to Andara, she was very concerned about making new friends. The staff at Andara made a special effort to make her feel welcome and not only learned about her but introduced her to several other residents who they thought would have some things in common with her and like her. She became fast friends with a number of people and told my wife and me many times how happy she was at Andara what a great move it was and how much she enjoyed her friends.
    Second, I cannot say enough good things about the assisted living management and staff. The last month of my mothers life was hard with hospital visits etc. I had no idea what this type of care included and required. What was really amazing to see and experience is the compassion, empathy and love (yes i know it's an unusual word to use to review a retirement community!) that came through the caregivers. It's one thing to do the work but something very different to do it because you want to make someones life better. I am forever grateful to this team of dedicated professionals who provided such comfort and support to my mother.

    In conclusion, Andara is not a huge facility which lends itself to much personal attention. The entire staff works so hard to know each and every resident I would recommend this facility to anyone not only because it is a beautiful place but most importantly, because of the people employed there. They are the best!!!

    I have recently moved my Mother to the Inn. The first day I came in to tour the facility everyone was very attentive and courteous. The staff has been great! I'm very impress with the follow up from day one. The best thing is receiving daily updates from her care taker regarding my mothers care and her transition to a new home. I thank the management and care staff for giving my family such great piece of mind knowing my mother is well taken care. God Bless and thank you once again for such inspiring dedication!

    It was a very difficult and stressful time when my Mom realized she could no longer live alone. We looked into other alternatives and decided she that moving into Fountain View Village would be a good idea. This was such a good decision. She tells me every day how happy she is to be living here. The staff go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. They invite her to activities and to meals. They have introduced her to others who may have the same interests. Every single person has gone out of their way to make her feel welcomed. They treat all of the residents as if they are important just like they are caring for their own family member. And, she likes the food!
    I can sleep at night knowing she is happy and safe.

    Our mother has been at Emerald Springs for 3 years now, and it's her "home". She has a beautiful one bedroom apartment, with wonderful people taking care of her as she needs it.

    When she first arrived there, she was able to take care of her own physical needs, but we wanted someone else to control her medicines for her. Since then, she's needed more and more care, and as she needs it, they notice, and give it to her.

    They're now helping her shower and dress, making sure she changes clothes daily,and helping her get ready for bed. They noticed that she doesn't participate much in activities, so they make sure she gets out of her apartment and communicates with others by coming for her at meal times, so she avoids isolating herself.

    And their food, oh, I can't say enough about it; it's not the pablum we all think of when we think of "nursing home" food. They don't just have a cook, they have a chef! The meals always have salad and soup offered if you'd like it, besides the dinner which includes your main course along with vegetable.

    I enjoy eating there with her, more than I do some of our finest restaurants around Yuma. Junior's (the chef) chicken fried steak is better than Texas Roadhouse!

    If you don't like anything on the daily menu, you can ask for something else; as long as it's something a standard kitchen would have in stock, they'll fix it for you. And we love the fact that although there are mealtimes, you can come down to the dining room anytime between 7am and 6pm and have something to eat, or get a snack. Other places we looked at had "set" times you could eat, and if you missed those, too bad.

    If you have to ask for occasional changes in your loved ones care, be sure you repeat your request more than once. As staff changes for off time, we've found that things are not always documented when first requested, and are not always passed on to the incoming personnel.

    The only issue we've had that was ongoing for any length of time, was a problem with her laundry not being done when it should have been. It kept being skipped, and even when we called, it would be skipped again at the next scheduled date. Not a deal breaker, as it doesn't have a bearing on her personal care.

    Mom is shown nothing but the utmost kindness and respect, from the knock on her door before they enter, to the way they talk "to her", not over her, even though she has dementia, and can't always make her own decisions.

    Review by Daughter of 2 residents

    My parents both live at the Amethyst in Peoria. They have been there a little over a year. The first few months were pretty confusing with no real person in charge to talk with. That has changed in most areas. Most of the staff is great. Here are the pluses. My parents enjoy the activities in the community on a daily basis. They talk a lot about going to trips and events all the time this is big thing for them because they would not have any entertainment without the activities in the community. Activities being scheduled regularly that are covering all interests rather than just a few interests is a big plus. My mother is not a quilt maker but does enjoy many other activities. My dad asks all the time where she is going and the answer is usually to an activity she is interested in. Also, every week on Friday both my mom and dad are at happy hour with live entertainment. Just recently my parents have told me about how good the food is. My mom has a digestive disorder and she even said that the food is much better now than before. My dad on the other hand has lost the ability to talk about anything other then how good the food is now. I was skeptical to be quite honest. Yesterday I was down for a visit and all i can say is wow !! Whoever made the changes in food at the Amethyst you are my parents hero. I myself ate lunch with my parents and was impressed with everything. The menu is a real menu not some school cafeteria offering. they cn order anything they want off the menu and not have to eat whatever the Chef made that day. what a nice change for them. The food looked appetizing for the first time since I have been in the dining room. The food is a top notch reason why my parents want to stay after it being a reason for them wanting to move to another facility as little as 2 months ago. The only issue on going is the nursing situation. I know they have a new person in charge and i have talked with her on several occasions. She is more interested in being right than caring. She is really a bull about almost everything. I have heard from others that this is how she is. My sister wanted to talk about some medication questions two weeks ago and got nowhere with her. Rushed, i do not have time for you and overbearing towards staff member is what she reported to me. She is a desk nurse at best not a bed side nurse. There may be a nursing change coming soon. I hope so. She really has no people skills and no care in her whatsoever. She has a horrible demeanor to be in that environment. Oh well 1 area bad does not erase the good things in all the other areas.

    I have had several clients at this property in various levels of care. The care has consistently been good and the staff are knowledgeable and caring. The food is good, except the food in the skilled nursing area, which has been inconsistent in my experience. This property offers multiple levels of care, allowing a resident to transition from more independent care to complete care as their needs increase. It also allows for short skilled nursing stays after a hospital admission.

    This community is clean and well managed, especially in the memory care unit. The staff in Memory Care seem to go above and beyond caring for the residents. It seems residents are well cared for and respected.
