Mom started out in Skilled Nursing in November 2017 as she really needed the attention from doctors and nurses. They did an amazing job of taking care of her and getting her in right away after we toured the entire campus. My sister and I chose a room for Mom that was cozy and bright. After Mom got better, my sister and brothers with the help of staff chose a room for Mom in AssistedLiving as Mom was ready to live independently with the help of nurses and aids to dispense meds etc. and dine with new friends in the beautiful dining room. Mom enjoyed watching her new home being built from her great window view in Assisted Living as she is now in the new Memory Care building. Once again we helped find her a beautiful place in the new building with a private bathroom and window view of the landscaping. Staff has done as amazing job with Mom and we consider FTJ employees FAMILY.  Mom could not have gotten better without their professional, skilled, loving employees. I can’t say enough good about FTJ.

THANK YOU for taking care of our precious Mom.

I’m so glad we found FTJ for our mother to live out her last years.  Wonderful caring staff.  Lots to do.  Great food. Beautiful surroundings.  Reasonable cost for such a lovely place.

Franke Tobey Jones has a fabulous staff, every one of them!  They are a very special team.  They help all of us in many ways.  The campus here is beautiful.  We love to walk through it frequently seeing all the trees, shrubs and many colorful plants.  We are so fortunate to live here and know we couldn’t have chosen a better senior community than Franke Tobey Jones.
