I Am/Was A Resident Of This Facility
The Glenn Hopkins was very huge; it looked like a big castle. It has nine stories of independent living. It's a sturdy old building, but it's well built, so it was very good. They have a small button in the kitchen that you have to push every morning so they know that you're OK, so that was a very good thing. The Glenn Hopkins was called St. Therese at first, and then it sold out to The Glenn. Because I'm Catholic, I did like it to begin with because there were a few Catholic priests living there and they had very good services every morning. However, there was quite a difference when The Glenn took over. They tried to have every small activity going on at the same as the church programs, so you could feel that there was a difference, and that wasn't too great. I didn't think the food was that great either. They didn't have many amenities; they had very simple offerings.
