Devonshire pleasant in every way - except the food

Assuming 5 is good and 1 is bad, Devonshire would seem to be a favourable choice of residence. It looks and smells clean, is quiet and feels homey despite its very large size. The residents - at least in the section my relatives live in - are well-organized and motivated (as each is able) to keep active and engaged in any of the myriad activities, clubs and events planned each week.

However, the meals served for residents at Devonshire are outrageously pricey and of very poor quality. It's better to cook and eat at home - which means finding someone to grocery shop for you if you don't have the strength or stamina for it anymore.

Also, there were some glaring security issues left unattended to in the building for years ... until public areas were broken into and items stolen. Remedial steps have apparently been taken since.

Further, it is easy to become disoriented in the buildings due to a builder error that apparently could not be corrected. Becoming confused and lost is common and understandable. Make maps and carry them with you until you know your way around!

Considering how all seniors residences in North America seem to base their business model on the principle of extortion, being unable to restrain themselves from emptying the bank accounts of the burgeoning numbers of baby boomers heading their way before they depart altogether, Devonshire seems to be one of the nicer-looking members of the club that is professional in its offering of services to those in need.
