What Residents are Saying:
Visitors to the community note how clean it is and a good size. "Most of the staff members were long term and had been there for years, so there's very little turnover, which is an excellent sign. They have weight lifting, exercise classes, group games, cards, movie time, and they go to museums, shows, and shopping," said one.
