“When my wife developed Alzheimer's, she was in a facility where I felt they did not provide the care she needed. Hermitage Roanoke assured me they would take good care of her, and they were right. After she made the move, I came to Independent Living and walked to visit her every day. It was a great relief for both of us to be here. Everyone's very caring.”
— Resident Dr. William Blaylock
