    I have had my mother at this facility for a few years now. She was very hesitant at first and so was I. The staff was nice and welcoming, some spoke broken english and that was hard for her to understand. For the most part they've done a great job...

    Great price but very worn. It is a very large community so if the senior cannot get around on their own it is not the place for her. Adminstration staff very nice and willing to assist the residents. Visit for yourself....

    Seniors get lost easily in the long halls and the food does not meet my standards. Many of the care staff have heavy accents which makes it difficult for residents to understand the interactions The assisted living section has odors. Not one of ny first choices
