Linda Baird Testimonial
“I can choose to get involved in what’s going on at the development or to catch up with my friends as I please. Our development has 24 hour security, a secure door entry system and a house manager to oversee everything so I feel so safe here. I feel that I can just come and go as I please and I just feel really safe and secure.”
