I did not experience a meal but the take home cookies were delicious and a nice touch. The questions asked of me regarding my mother were very thorough. The only reason I did not choose Peterborough Retirement Home is because my first impression upon entering the building was that the lounge was somewhat shabby and it looked like a nursing home. And I knew my mother would find it depressing. But nice things are important to her.
