What Residents are Saying:
Residents talk about the quality atmosphere at Azalea Trace Assisted Living. One family member says, "Azalea Trace’s strong point is the people who work there. It is easier to spend way more money on another assisted living place, but it would be hard to get better care. I find the staff to be very attentive, loving, and kind, and they go out of their way to be helpful. I wish I could spend more time there, and I recommend it to anyone looking for assisted living.”
