This is the best place we have found for my mother, who was at Buckingham Place, in Hollywood, FL, for the past 1 1/2 years. We found that the OTHER Assisted Living Facility was no longer appropriate, care-wise, for my mom... and when we met Ann and Vincent, the owners/directors, we knew we'd found the perfect place!
We, too, checked all over Dade and Broward counties, and found that the entire staff here welcomed Mom as a member of their group family. It's small -- taking care of 18-20 people, but that's a big Plus Factor. Unlike the OTHER place, we were INVITED to come and have meals with her, and were invited to be with her when they had their monthly birthday parties and holiday parties. (The OTHER place let us visit at a meal, but we had to give notice, pay additional money, etc...)
Even during Mom's final weeks, when we were with Mom constantly, staff came by to check and say hi to Mom and to us, and to feed and comfort us, as well. I can't say enough good things about the way Mom, and we, were treated in the time she was there. Wish we'd found out about this place sooner!!
