...My mother is a resident and she loves her room, meals and all the staff who are both caring and respectful towards residents and visitors. I wholeheartedly recommend this facility.

My mother, Pearl, was a resident at the hostel for the final six months of her life, during which time she received wonderful care and respect from the doctor and all the staff, about whom I cannot speak highly enough...
I have a family member who currently resides in this facility. She's found many friends not just with the other residents but also through the staff at the facility...The staff are nothing but kind and courteous...
I personally have had a wonderful experience working at this facility...The staff are all so supportive of each other and are like family. Residents are always telling me how much they love the staff and that staff are doing a wonderful job...
