I visited this facility
Bright Oaks of Aurora was really nice and very attractive. It had everything that we needed, except that we needed a two-bedroom and they didn't have one available at the time. The place was clean, their menus looked good as far as the food, and the people were friendly. It was just a really nice place, but it did not match what my folks needed. Another thing that was good about it was that it was convenient because it was really close to a hospital (only about a block and a half away), so that's nice. I felt like the staff member's answers to my questions were sincere; they weren't trying to sell the place and they were just being honest. The building itself was clean. It looked brand new, it was nice, and it had a good view of the river where the people could sit outside. There was also a walking path.
