What Residents are Saying:
Family members and residents appreciate the on-site physician and therapists. "What's good about them is that they have a senior gerontologist who comes once a week; he is a really good doctor. They have physical therapy and occupational therapy, so a person doesn't have to leave... which I think is really fabulous," one says.
