My father is living at this facility and loves it. He does not have a great memory at this time but what he does remember is his time in the Army. They respect all branches of the service in a BIG way. All men and women here are treated with respect, humor and kindness. The staff is exceptional. They make a point of coming to you, calling you by name (I'm talking about the visitor here) and making you feel welcome. The place is immaculate, smells clean and no one seems to be left in an abandon hallway. Two thumbs up for the staff and the facility.
