Here's what our residents say about us:

  • "I’ve never lived in a place as beautiful and bright as the Rose with its friendly, courteous, loving staff and residents.  We are just like a box of crayons--some are sharp, some are dull, some are pretty, some not so pretty, some are handsome, some are plain, yet we all live quite nicely in the same box." -Elizabeth H.
  • "I finally can say I have met the goal of my life.  My entire life I’ve never been in a place that I can feel this good.  Thank you for the people I’ve met…they are the ones responsible for the way I feel." - GMSR
  • "The Rose is wonderfully designed for comfort, enjoyment, and peaceful living for those in their twilight years of life.  The experience here has met all my expectations!" - IL. Jenkins
