“I think it’s beautiful…but I really think that the people are the best part.”

Resident’s niece

“I felt as if I had moved in kind of an extended family.”


“I fell in love with the place and I knew I was going to be very happy.”


“I think it’s good for my son and his family because they don’t have to worry about me in a condominium. I never have a worry about security.”


“If it is a lonely day or a dark day, you don’t have to be alone…you can go and find somebody to talk to.”


“I can’t think of a better place to be…it’s reasonable in price and the food is good.”
