Newer facility with nice amenities. The staff could afford to be a bit more attentive to residents when the call button has been pushed. Unfortunately, the time it takes for a staff member to respond is too long. This is something that can be easily corrected by management, however.

The staff and physical therapy staff were great. I would have rated the facility all five stars except sometimes short staff and my mom had to wait for help. Otherwise would recommend it for loved ones.
