My mother resided at Shalom for two years and I can only say that I was so impressed with the high standard of care she received in that time. The staff were so compassionate and caring towards my mother that I will be forever grateful.

I have had three elderly relatives residing at Shalom for almost a year and my initial impression that this facility was the best of the best, has actually been exceeded. Shalom is beautifully clean, warm, welcoming and friendly and the staff are just wonderful. I would highly recommend Shalom to anyone and everyone who considers excellent care of their elderly loved ones a priority. Heather Batchelor
