When you walk into A Love for Life, it feels like a big hug. Roann and staff embrace the concept of providing a true home for our cherished mom and all the residents. Words cannot express how much we trust and appreciate the around-the-clock staff who watch over our mom, who thoughtfully and skillfully work to make her life as happy and safe as possible and who always manage to smile and make us feel at home. We can sleep at night knowing our cherished mom is safe, well cared for and most of all, loved.

My step-mother has been a resident at A Love For Life for six years. She has received the best of care along with affectionate concern for her day-to-day contentment. Her memory issues and her personal care issues are always fully taken care of.
I have known Roann for almost 20 years in multiple capacities in the medical profession. Throughout these various career experiences, Roann has displayed remarkable character traits. She displays excellent communication skills both evidenced in her work in direct patient care as well as in her supervisory capacities in employee management. Her character has been particularly manifest in challenging work situations. I believe that she would be an excellent leader in assistive living facility operations and management, and I have no doubt that she will excel in such capacities.

I am impressed with the care and medication management of Roann and her fantastic staff at A Love for Life. I have worked with Roann for over a year and her priority is always the best care for her residents. I visit the home at different times and on different days and it is always an active, positive environment with fun activities and great smelling meals and snacks. As a consultant pharmacist I am very focused on the organization, management and cleanliness of a facility and A Love for Life always meets or exceeds my expectations.

I regularly visited this innovative Residential Assisted Living Home over a 2 year period as I served a Hospice patient who resided there. Towards the end of this man’s life, I saw firsthand the exemplary care given to all of those who made A Love For Life their home. They had the beautiful art of easing a dying man by respectfully giving genuine, individualistic, respectful services to him and his family during his last hours. I could not have asked for more for my patient.
I have recommended A Love For Life to families’ and continue to do so. This organization is a Senior Living exemplar; one that other Assisted Livings try to obtain.

You have created a wonderful “home” for these people, and by extension, their families. And at a reasonable cost. I really couldn’t imagine a better place for my mom to be, other than to still be healthy and living in her own home. I know of what I speak. I used to work as a hospice nurse and have been in many homes and facilities. And you are in the process of creating another “home”. You are a big hearted person, and you have a gift for hiring and training big hearted, caring and fun people. That makes all the difference, in addition to their skill and professionalism. And it starts with you and trickles down – “Trickle down healthcare”. Even in her advanced Alzheimer’s, my mom sings and dances more now than I’ve ever seen her do before. Thank you, thank you, thank you. To all of you.
My sister is a resident at A Love For Life, and I am more than pleased with her care. The staff love her and she lights up when they tend to her needs. I have been with her at several other care centers and A Love For Life is the very best.
We know that our mother is well-cared for in a safe place. The quality of the staff under Roann’s direction (a medical professional who is frequently on-site supervising) is a big plus.

I love it here! My son found this place and I’m so glad he did! They take such good care of us and the food is always delicious.
