My grandmother lived at the Orchard for several years. The Orchard is unique in that they have sections (apartment homes) for independant seniors, semi-independant seniors and a couple of sections for those with Alzhemier's, etc. My gradmother started out in independant living and eventually was in a full care Alzehimer's section. The care at the Orchard is amazing. Meals are provided for them three times a day in a beautiful dining room with the same waiters, waitresses and they all know their name and know what they like to eat. The nurses and staff are professional and give outstanding care. We never had to worry about her and knew she was always safe. They have lots of activities for the seniors including church services and trips (day) for those that are able to attend.
PROS: Best retirement home around
