We couldn't have been more pleased! Thompson is in a cozy older building but it is a vibrant, happy place. The staff was wonderful and there was never a dull moment- there were live bands, art shows, cooking classes and therapy dogs. My dad was able to rehab and return home but if the time comes when he has to return to a home permanently, we will go to Thompson.
