Had the opportunity to visit this building and meet the staff on a number of occasions. So impressed to see how they care for the residents. Also don't miss checking out the indoor and outdoor amenities. A great senior living community.

I moved my mother into The Orchards last year in the midst of Covid 19. I can't say enough about the precautions and care that the staff have given to the residents! The Orchards is a beautiful, welcoming environment, and my 93 year old mother is SO happy being a resident!!
The Orchards is fantastic. The staff is wonderful. They are always asking her how they can help her and make her day better. I totally trust them with my mother. The building is beautiful, very clean and safe. She loves it there!

My Mom loves her new apartment, the food, new friends, and the activities (she went walking with a group yesterday). I moved her from out of state and was worried, but, all is well. She is very happy in a "resort-like" beautiful new community at The Orchards.
