Marcia, Resident

There are so many opportunities here to go places, to meet new people and to be part of a larger community. There is always someone from the staff who will help give you ideas about handling challenging situations. I feel a part of an engaging, positive community. Location is very convenient to shopping, hospitals and doctors. My life is easier being here!
