Hollenbeck Palms

Review by Local Professional

Hollenback offers a beautiful campus setting for its residents. The community has been around for more than 100 years, but you would never know it as they continue to enhance their facilities recently adding an independent living building with good-sized apartments. Great longevity with the caring staff.
