    Currently, my hallway has had a leak since 6:00am. I have put in two emergency requests for help and no maintenance person has shown up. The leak is going through a light fixture and I am wondering if I want to continue to live here if there is not a maintenance person.

    It's expensive and the pool is closed half the time without any warning.

    I would like to say thank you to Elaine. She is excellent. She is helpful and professional. I just moved to the Poplar Place. Elaine’s support made the whole difference when I decided to live here. Thank you for your support! I am looking forward living here.

    Location is great and residents/staff are respectful. Price is getting a bit high, but I guess that's what happens when the economy is in the trash.
