"The staff is lovely. They are very helpful and very friendly. They know every one of the residents by name. They have a lot of help. Just recently when it snowed and the people slept over, they had accommodations for their staff. There are always people there to help, and that made me feel good. They serve three meals a day, and the three meals are like gourmet meals. They have like five choices all the time at lunch and dinner. They have salads, sandwiches, hamburgers, and hot dogs if you want to choose that. It is really lovely. My mother keeps saying that you couldn't have picked a better place. It took her a month and a half to adjust, and she wasn't that happy in the first month, but once she started making friends, it was OK."
