I Visited This Facility

Friends Home in Kennett showed me all the rooms that they have, but there's only a couple that were available. Their rooms were very small, so I didn't care for those. They seemed to have a lot going on for the patients. The patients seemed to be happy there. They were not too talkative, but they were playing cards, playing games, and working on puzzles. They were socializing. The person who took me around knows all of them by their first name. They joked around, and they teased one another. The staff members were very polite and very nice. They treated the patients quite well. Well, the patients welcomed us to come in and looked at their apartment. It was good because you can see that even though the apartment was small, they had fixed it up personally to suit themselves, and they were nice. I can't really find anything wrong with Friends Home.
