Care and Distance for dad

reviewed on: 05/31/2017 by Anonymous

We toured this community for my father's care. We liked that the staff was kind and able to answer the questions we had on the care that is offered. The menu was appealing and the community was very positive. They offer a nice list of activities for the residents. We wanted a community closer to home. We would recommend that families tour this nice community for the care of a loved one's needs.

The best of the best!

The Academy was by far the best place that we have ever seen. We toured over 6 places and had my loved one is 2 different communities, so we have experience. She loved what she saw, and we were very impressed with the community. We liked that she could be independent and still have a little bit of help when needed. The administration lady was great. I highly recommend this community to anyone!

nice place to consider
