“Every staff member I spoke with was kind, patient, caring and attentive to my mom. The concierge remembered me as I came in the building and let me know one morning that my mom was in exercise class, and on another occasion, she kindly offered me something to drink while my mom played Yahtzee.”
-Paulette, Daughter

Real Reviews, Real Care

“This is a friendly environment. I moved here from a different assisted living because from my first visit, I could tell that this place was quality. I didn’t have any doubt to move and I’ve made so many friends here. I’m diabetic so it was important to have a lot of good options and I always have so many choices when eating in the restaurant. I am very happy here and this is my forever home.”

Lettie K., Resident

“This was my moms home for a few months before she passed. I wished we would have moved her sooner because she would probably still be alive today. God bless your staff. They are angels and my whole family cannot say enough about how well mom was cared for. We will always drive past Residences at smile. Thank you for all that you do.”

Bob B., Family Member
