They don't provide a cottage or manor house there. But, the location is closer us that can be considered for an assisting care living in the future.

A Good Choice

reviewed on: 06/15/2015 by Heather Fisher

My father has been in Millcroft Assited Living for several months now and I have found it to be a wonderful facility. The sales counselor made my Dad feel very comfortable during the initial interviewing and evaluation process. He understood my Father's anxiety about leaving his home and was very sensitive to that. The nursing staff is the best! The head nurse wasted no time addressing my Dad's many health issues. Her goal was to get him healthier and his health has improved greatly since he has been there. He is on a better diet, getting more exercise than at home, and in a community like this, there is always someone to talk to. Millcroft has such a patient and caring staff. I am so thankful for them and thankful for the peace of mind I have every day knowing he is in their care.

Wonderful Place!

Millcroft Independent Living is a wonderful place! My father-in-law is settled in there and likes it very much. We've been very impressed with the staff and the way they look out for residents. It's a lovely facility, with plenty of activities and events for residents. My only minor complaint is with the food - I ate there several times with my father-in-law and was disappointed by the lack of fruits and vegetables in the meals. Other than that, we have been more than pleased.

Aunt seemed content.

My aunt lived here and she seemed content in the assisted living. They offered a higher level of care if needed so that if one person needed to have more care they could still be together.
