What Residents & Families Are Saying

Thank you for taking such good care of my mother, Mae R. I am so grateful she was surrounded by a staff that treated her with love, respect and understanding. The Mardi Gras celebration was the following week. She loved the Mardi Gras parade and the root beer floats. She had a great time listening to the music that day. I think she sang every song. I will always cherish that memory. Thank you.

Nancy F. - Skilled Nursing

The people working in the dining room (of Parkland Garden Apartments) have been most accommodating and helpful with the delivery arrangements for my mother Marge D. Their attention to detail has been beyond what anyone might expect. The food quality has been excellent! The choices have been many and varied and the new heart offerings are most helpful.
