“I am impressed with the fast delivery to my … requests and medications. CNAs never neglected me when calling them. Physical therapist does take certain time to instruct me carefully on understanding how to use appropriate techniques with caring and attentive communicating… CNAs are accessible to me anywhere I go in this building and also interpreter [is] always around. I like seeing staff and residents signing ‘good morning.’ I can see everyone is friendly here and it makes me feel good. The food is good…”
