    Whealdon Estates is a nice place, though it depends on the room you get because some rooms are nicer than others. The room that I saw was a one-bedroom that was recently renovated, so it was nice. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We had lunch there, and the food was very tasty.

    Whealdon Estates was a very nice place and appeared to be very clean and neat. The nice manager who gave me the tour was very thorough in explaining the whole protocol. At the time of my visit, I did not see any activities because there was an outbreak of a virus, but I saw that they had a list of activities. I saw an exercise room as well as a game room/TV room for everyone. The residents that I saw seemed very well adjusted. The dining area was very nice. I didn’t get the chance to see their food, but I saw the menu and was very pleased with that as well.
