"My mom has been at The Groves for a little over a month and we couldn't be happier! Every staff member is warm, caring and intuitive to the residents' needs. Her transition has gone more smoothly than I ever thought possible! I would highly recommend The Groves for your loved one's care needs." - Daughter of resident

"Northgate Plaza is a nice place. Everyone is extremely friendly, the residents and the staff. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. The facility has a nice and clean atmosphere. The value is excellent for the services that you receive here. They offer activities. It has been a positive experience. This is an excellent community. We haven't had any issues or anything negative happen. It has been great." - Family member of resident

"I am still getting settled in but so far the experience has been amazing. The staff have such a willingness to help and go above and beyond to make sure I am comfortable as a new resident. The food here is very good and the activities are just wonderful. Everyday here is an exercise class and they also have a stationary bike and treadmill that I have taken advantage of. Every Friday they have a happy hour where I am able to enjoy a glass of wine a socialize with the other residents which is nice. The community also has a library! With so much to do I am confident this will be one of the best decisions I could've made!" - Resident at The Creekside
