      So beautifully designed and thought out. The hairdresser, chaplain, physio, library, etc all have vintage shop fronts to give the common space a lively feel. This place honestly sets the standard for aged living.

      Our parents have just taken up residency there. Everybody from the GM to the maintenance man have been so caring. It's a 5 star facility - I wouldn't mind living there myself!
