Garden Apartment Resident Review by Jan Johnson
5 stars
September 2020
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.
