When choosing the right senior housing for your loved ones, learning about all of the services and amenities an assisted living home offers only shows a small part of the whole picture. While knowing what services are provided allows you to easily find a home that is a good fit for your elderly relative, it is vitally important to take the extra step and listen to testimonials from people with their own unique experiences. Testimonials offer new perspectives, ones that shed light on a resident’s emotions, wellbeing, and progress during their time at that assisted living community. At Belvedere Senior Living, the testimonials from family members and residents do an excellent job of showing the staff’s dedication to providing a comfortable and healthy environment to seniors.
