I've been to Self Help a few times to visit residents on the Jewish holidays. This community has been around for a long time and is one of the few that has Kosher kitchens. Regular Shabbat services are available and they mulitple care levels from independent retirement to assisted living and more.

When I toured I found it to ve very institutional. It wasn't nearly as convenient for me to get there as the place we chose. My friend who has a loved one that lives here, feels that the quality of help they get is superb. They care for him very well. I found it depressing, the lighting was not good, and the rooms were like hospital rooms. I did speak at length with the director there and he was wonderful, but I just found it to be unappetizing for our needs.
