What Residents are Saying:
Relatives praise this community's grounds and its dining options. One said, "The person who showed us around was fantastic. The staff is decorating my mother's apartment right now; we are actually moving her in tomorrow morning. They have an on-staff chef, so it is not just a mess hall cook. The food is fresh, and they have a feature meal."
