Testimonials

I like the “friendship” we have with the other girls. The meals suit me fine. We all seem compassionate when there is sadness at “The Seasons”. Like there has been. My room is warm enough. My room is satisfactory and I like when the girls clean it. Friendship, working w/very special ladies, activities, and everyone is so caring about each other. Meals are good. The season’s is a sunshine place. The Care is wonderful. I’ve never heard an unkind word or seen and unkind act! Carmen is great and great with care giving if anyone is not well. Food is usually good. Sometimes the evening meal is not up to my liking .This is a good place to be if needed.
