  • We had a sweet and happy chatterbox visit with my precious Aunt Alice! The crazy times make visiting difficult, but glad we have this opportunity!馃挄

  • Arbutus is awesome! Friendly staff and excellent residents. I've had family members (past and present) who have been residents there -- fun activities, great food, and wonderful people. The independent living folks are also great! Such a fun group and they're always out and about doing activities in the community. Highly recommend Arbutus!

  • Arbutus is a fantastic place! The staff is very friendly, the complex is well-maintained, and the various activities the residents can participate in are wonderful and very entertaining. My family and I love attending the events that are open to the public -- everyone is always so welcoming and helpful when we are there. TheMore聽
