Testimonials for Prairie Green at Fay’s Point
We can talk all day about how great our communities are, but we think you should hear from people who have experienced first-hand how we offer an unmatched quality of life at every senior living community.
“I did like Prairie Green. It looked really nice. The one I met was very nice, easy to talk to, and very supportive, and made me comfortable if I needed to place my father there. That would’ve been one of my choices”
“We just moved my in-laws into Reflections this past week. They love Reflections. Everyone is so nice and helpful. Their apartment is wonderful and they were able to keep their dog. They love the food and the neighbors. This is the perfect place for our parents and once they are settled in they will be so happy about the move. Thanks to Kim who was wonderful to work with.”
“We toured this community when we were looking into care options for a loved one. I thought this was a very nice looking place! The facility itself was clean and well kept. I liked that it was located far enough from the city that you can see the countryside, the views were very nice”
