I Visited This Facility

Blair House was a very nice place. I prefer them because all my doctors are in Bloomington. They were extremely nice. They were really busy that day, but we went back a couple of times because we just hit it off with the lady that runs the place. They have more amenities than the other place I saw. They had nice rooms and it's more relaxed. The people were friendly. I had four little ladies ask me before I left, "Are you moving in with us? Please move in with us." They seemed very nice. The halls and the rooms looked very clean. The dining area was very nice. I absolutely liked the room that I looked at.

I had a very good tour guide in Blair House who showed me several layouts and all the amenities that go with living there. Everything was very nice, clean, and updated. I didn't see many staff members, but the ones I met were friendly. The dining area was pretty, and the only thing lacking was a swimming pool.

My father-in-law has been staying at Blair House for two and a half years. It has been fine and we've been happy there. He has a good apartment and they keep it clean. It fits what he needs. The food is very good and they have card groups and sometimes they have music. They have several activities offered and the staff is very good and very open to talking with us if there's a problem.
