"My 89 year old mother has been at the Sands Point Center for the past two years and we couldn't be happier. She requires assistance with most day to day activities as well as skilled nursing care. The staff has done an outstanding job in all cases. They are some of the most loving, caring people I've ever met, as well as being consummate professionals. The food choices at the Center are excellent and the residents are offered numerous activities to keep them busy. We moved out of the NY area last year and stay in touch over the phone and with visits 2-3 times a month. No matter when we get there, and we often come unannounced, everything is as it should be. I would not hesitate to highly recommend the Sand Point Center to anyone in need of the services they provide."
