Thankfully it is a small intimate home town kind of facility, 
with a wonderful Director and fabulous Staff!
I can't say enough of how hard these people work to keep my (and many others) loved ones, happy and healthy and entertained....not a very easy task, but they are all doing a remarkable job and I AM SO THANKFUL!

We have 27 women and 12 men.

I took the easy way out and went with very simple designs.
