I Visited This Facility

We looked at The Montebello on Academy, and that's the place we're trying to get into. It's a very classy place and the pieces of furniture were nice and classy. They had a great chef. I didn't interview any of the people that were staying there, but just from the looks of them sitting around, they seemed content enough. I didn't feel like it's a typical independent living facility where you walk in and the first thing you see is a big dining room with a bunch of tables. Everything was kind of back behind the door, so you have a greeting area that's nice and well-maintained. The staff was very professional, answered my questions and weren't pushy. I felt pretty good about my interaction with the sales agent. You have to dress to go to dinner there. It's just a nicer, upscale place. You don't get the feeling of going into an old folk's home when you walk in the door. It's kind of well done that way. The areas that I saw looked just fine. I liked this facility the best.
