My father in law passed away June 6th under hospice care in the Aravilla senior living facility, after living there for the past two years. My wife and I found the place extremely accommodating. It has a great atmosphere, and the management and staff are all we could have asked for. We have experience with senior living facilities in both Michigan and Florida, and beyond a doubt, this is by far the best we've dealt with. Carol Copenhaver, the administrator, was more than gracious in allowing all of his immediate family to see him in his final days, despite the Covid-19 restrictions.
