"My dad, Reverend Verdel Washington, has been in three different nursing homes. His last stay a few months ago was at Mansfield Memorial Homes, and he loved it there! His care was excellent. With a lot of therapy, he improved quickly, but we had a hard time getting him to leave because he felt so comfortable there. I was there almost daily and was always impressed with the facility and the staff."
