Special Needs Suites

Our Special Needs Assisted Living residence is a specially designed unit for residents with mild to moderate dementia or more complicated physical needs. Because of the increased level of care, our staffing ratio is higher in this unit. Magnolia Court is a secured unit with ample walking space in a secure, supervised environment.
