This community is considered a CCRC because it has most all levels of care. It is very upscale in many ways but it is a very long distance to get to some of the apartments. The dinning is upscale and it does have Assisted Living services brought to the apartments...

Well, the parking for visitors is horrible. I have a friend I visit here quite often, and have received parking tickets for not making it back to my car quick enough. The meter maids here are very efficient! I know my friend really likes it here and has been at Ida Culver for a couple years now...
