Mercy Retirement & Care Center did a great job, and if I were looking for housing right now, I would probably be very interested in pursuing them. The staff member was excellent, very patient, knowledgeable, kind, understanding, and gave me a lot of time. He told me the history of the place, gave me a thorough tour, and I had a good experience with him. He’s highly recommended. I really liked the place. I did observe people doing puzzles, listening to music, sitting around, talking, and socializing.Tara R.Mercy Retirement & Care Center
