Using the freshest ingredients available, our cooks prepare homemade meals for the residents. Breakfast is cooked to order and two main entrée choices are served for lunch and dinner. Alternate a la carte substitutions are also offered. The menu is written by a registered dietician and offers a variety of choices. New entrées are routinely served to maintain menu variety and to introduce new foods to the residents.

The therapy I received for my knee replacement surgery was great! I stayed in the Skilled Nursing Facility and everything was just great. Having a private room was so important to me.

Never did I think I could like living in a nursing home but I really do! After a heart attack and broken hip, I can no longer live alone. The staff here is so helpful, and my room is very comfortable! I especially enjoyed the physical therapy I received.

When we walked in and saw the bright, spacious apartment we knew this was the place for us! We love the view from our apartment. Everyone here was so welcoming and made us feel right at home!
