That leads to his four principles: 1) quality of care must be superb; 2) food quality and service must be outstanding; 3) the building must be maintained in top notch condition; and 4) the residents must be offered an engaging and enjoyable wide range of activities, outings, and entertainment. Michael visits our community regularly and enjoys meeting (and thanking!) residents and family members.
