I toured this communityreviewed on: 12/27/2017 by Anonymous
I went on a tour here and the staff was nice and helpful. They answered all of my questions. It was nice and clean. They have more care options here. But not a lot of amenities for the price. I would recommend families tour this community before making a choice.
Very Clean Place!!reviewed on: 11/15/2016 by Anonymous
This community was a good choice for my father. The staff is very helpful and attentive to his needs. My father's favorite thing about the community is the fact that the dining room is open from 7am to 7pm, so he can go have his meals when he wants to. The community is very clean and well kept up. The room he is in is very comfortable, he has a lot of windows that provide a lot of natural lighting. The only suggestion I have is I wish they had higher toilets in the bathrooms. The one he currently has is low in my opinion. I would definitely recommend this community to anyone looking!
A nice older buildingreviewed on: 09/14/2017 by Anonymous
The food is good and they offer a variety of choices. The staff are friendly and helpful. They offer daily activities. The community is clean and the grounds are nice. There is a park next to it for the residents to enjoy. The community does have only one elevator. I would recommend this community.

The best of the best!reviewed on: 03/14/2017 by Anonymous
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!
