The Life Care Center of Estero-Making You Feel at Home

The Life Care Center of Estero-Making You Feel at HomeNot all assisted living facilities are the same, and that’s certainly true of Life Care Center.  Making the decision to leave your home and live in a facility can be a challenging process.  Word of mouth is usually a good determiner of quality care within a respectful environment, so hearing the praises sung about Life Care by their own residents, means a great deal to many individuals making the decision to transition into the facility.

Residents like Mary Harris Denton, a 94-year-old woman that loved the facility so much, she asked if she could greet each patient and their loved ones to give them a tour of the facility, and to encourage them about the choices they were making.  Mary felt as if Life Care was her home and that the residents and staff were her family.  Many others share the same affections as Ms. Harris, and when you visit Life Care of Estero, you’ll most likely experience that sentiment as well.
