“I enjoy showing a potential resident and their family around our large commons area, the upscale dining room, and then to their private apartment. I enjoy being involved in this process and helping them understand, that making the decision to move into assisted living, can lead to new friends, great food, and give them the security of knowing a nurse is always available”.
