I Visited This Facility

Thornton Place was really nice, very clean, and friendly. The staff who assisted me was great and took us through a walkthrough of both the three-story building and the cottages, pointed out the differences, and took us to the dining area, fitness gym, beauty shop, and home health. There were people working on puzzles, Bible study, and cards. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The facility was very modern, efficient and set up for handicap accessibility.

I Am/Was A Resident Of This Facility

We chose Thornton Place because it is warm and friendly, and the food is wonderful. The only activity I have been to is bingo, but there are other things which I will check on later. There are trips on a bus and we can use the bus to go to our doctors' appointments, and there's also a beauty shop. I have a 900 square feet 2-bedroom apartment with 2 baths.

I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My mother-in-law seems to really like Thornton Place so far. The upkeep seemed really good, the outside was nice, and the food was good. I've eaten there a couple of times with her. They've got a new chef and she loves the food. There seems to be activities all different times of the day -- she enjoys the bible service, they have exercise, and game nights for Bingo and cards. We're happy with it.
