“I want my father to spend his days in a place that he enjoys. I found that at DevonHouse. You step through the front doors and you’re in a huge living room, fresh and clean. People are enjoying one another’s company. Dad enjoys the food and he really likes when the ladies bake fresh cookies and pass them out. Dad has a nice quiet room for when he wants Dad time. The staff are very caring… they are on top of everything, keeping the rooms neat, getting people dressed, giving medications, and always polite. I’m glad we found DevonHouse and my father always has a smile on his face.”
