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

Arrowood is pro-profit, and they don’t worry about the people living there. The shortcuts made with the meals are unreal. I didn’t like it. They’re very business-like and not personal. They have one woman who is supposed to be the activities director, and they work her to death, and she’s tired. Their main activity was bingo. They lack maintenance. The people they have are terrific, but they need more.

I Visited This Community

I thought Arrowood had a pleasant setting and a pretty nice atmosphere. The guy was very knowledgeable about the facility. They had different movie nights, groups that individuals that can get into, and outings to take people out to different places. They were very knowledgeable and answered the questions that I had. They took us around and showed us the apartments. It was very clean, nice, and presentable.
