I made a trip from Pennsylvania to see my cousin in the dementia unit . There are no words to say that can explain how much I was impressed with the facility and the staff . Not only is my cousin loved and cared for with great professionalism but we were also treated the same . I am a retired geriatric nurse of 45 years and I have worked in many facilities and this is definitely a 5 star.

The staff alone makes the 5 stars a must! So friendly and accommodating. I have worked with some of the dearest residents the past couple of months and I can tell you, it's my favorite class that I teach. Always look forward to coming here.
