    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.

    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.
