The staff at Springfield Place work SO hard, and the guests are cared for SO well. It's a combination of independent and assisted living. It looks like a high-class hotel, smells fresh and healthy (not medicinal). People are living active lives there, not being housed. There are all sorts of activities on site and many regular outings too. Three daily restaurant-style meals are included so people can choose what they want for each meal. Apartments have kitchenetttes too, but people don't cook much. It's expensive, but if you can afford it, you'd have a hard time finding a better place.
