This place is absolutely beautiful. Not only is it very well run, but they are very welcoming to family members. You can actually have something cooked homemade to eat with your loved one. Great staff and friendly, easy-going owners who always have a fun activity you can do with your loved one. Great place to get mom dad, husband, wife, etc. not only great care, but also compassionate staff with a home setting. They also specialize in memory care. If you are looking for a home for your loved one, this is the home!!!

After having difficulties finding a good fit for my father, he was moved to The Gables about a month ago. He is doing so well! The staff has really taken the time to get to know him, and you can tell because he's responding to them the way he does with family. He's even joking around, which is something we haven't seen in a while! But even more important, the way they respond when he's having a bad day...which, with Alzheimer's, is going to happen. They're right there for him, and know exactly what to do to calm and reassure him, while allowing him to maintain his dignity. It's a very safe and caring environment. I would recommend it to anyone who is in the difficult position of needing help for a family member.

The Gables is a very nice home. The staff and the owners are very nice people. They really seem to care about our loved ones. It is a very clean environment to live and stay. I recommend this place to any and every one.

My dad has been there since December. I am so very happy with everything. They really care about the people living there. I would never take my dad to live at a nursing home. This is a small extended family home.
