Pleasant family home. Fabulous meals. Good medical attention. We've been lucky with the timing of my wife coming into Voguehaven as we came in with the new owners and have been happy with everything.

Working in the industry, I was very particular about where my parents would end up, which is why my father is in Voguehaven.
