I Visited This Community

What I love most about this assisted living facility, is their understanding that the need for assistance—does not mean that seniors want to be confined inside the building. Aside from the modern selection of daily in-house activities, the group outings are quite exceptional. Residents can sign up for “summer camp” or “winter camp” and enjoy outings such as boating, hiking, fishing, paddle boating, camping, and other favorite outdoor activities. There are also many outings to nearby attractions and events. Residents can even join the onsite gardening club. Larger units can be shared to help reduce costs.
