    My suggestion about meeting your neighbors was because they are great "first hand knowledge" about the staff. Believe me, they will tell you if they would move out, dislike an employee, think someone is great.

    I did manage to get out and look around Sunday. Looks like I'll be going to "The Shores at Pleasant Hill". Went for a visit...met the chef...some of the residents...great setting...apartment isn't huge, but it bigger than I expected. Still some details to work out, but looking good...
