Overall

Had a tour and lunch with Linda MacDonald on January 15th.

I would highly recommend Amica at Douglas House to anyone looking for a friendly and caring environment for a senior in their family.
Linda MacDonald was very efficient, organized and experiences a real love for seniors. The people living at Amica at Douglas House are very happy and secure.
The staff are amazing, caring and very patience.
Knowing that there is medical staff on 24 hours/day is very comforting to the families.
At Amica at Douglas House there is a 2 levels of care. The suites were a good size and would make anyone feel right at home. If needed there was the opportunity of moving into suites where more care was administered by medical staff.

My thanks and appreciation to Lynn Larsen, General Manager and Linda MacDonald, Community Relations Manager for making Amica at Douglas House such a wonderful and caring environment for our seniors.
