From friends in NY-1From Langford-1From Nancy-1From Ronnie-1From Sharon-1When we started looking for a place, because we knew that the time had come to seek more professional care.
Southern Haven was the 1st place we visited. We didn’t look any further. Because we knew we had found the place for us. The 1st person we met was Sophie Ting, the owner and she convinced us that Southern Haven was going to be our own kind of place.
We’ve been been here right at 3 years and as a retired United Methodist Minister, I’ve always believed that the church is a family where everyone’s at home and everyone is welcome.
This is the atmosphere that prevails at Southern Haven. You do feel at home!
The staff is not only professional, but they do care about the residents, and go out of their way to make sure that every need is met. I care for them (the staff here) God’s Angels because they’re always watching over us. In my ministry I’ve visited a lot of hospitals, Nursing homes and assisted living homes and I would have no problem recommending Southern Haven to anyone whose looking for a place for their loved ones.

I just wanted to send you an email again telling you THANKS for all you and your staff did for my father. Although his time at Southern Haven was limited my father sure was happy there. I can’t tell you enough how professional and loving your staff is. Southern Haven is a Fantastic Place and I am glad my father was there.

Love and Gratitude
Tim Scharnagle

Again I am so grateful to you and your staff for all you did to make my father’s final days so enjoyable and peaceful.

May I suggest you change the name of your facility? Southern L. Haven When people ask what the “L” is for you can tell them LOVING!

God Bless you Sophie!!

My mother has been at Southern Haven for almost 3 years

  I could not ask for a more loving and caring environment for her to be in.
  At 101 years old she sometimes needs that “special attention” and the staff sees to that she gets whatever is needed.
  Southern Haven feels more like you are at home than in an assisted living facility. And my mother considers the staff and other folks that there part of her family.
I can highly recommend it to anyone that is considering such a move.
It gets 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 in my book

“Southern Haven has been a blessing for our family. They have taken excellent care of my husband’s grandfather for two years now. He is healthier now than he has been in years. They keep their residents happy and active. I have total confidence in the staff and know they truly care for the people that live at Southern Haven.”

We had to make the difficult decision to move my parents to an assisted living home due to dad with physical challenges and mom with dementia.  We visited Southern Haven Assisted Living facility and immediately felt a warm welcome with a homey atmosphere, exactly what we were looking for.  The transition in moving them to assisted living care has turned out to be a true blessing!

Southern Haven offers personal care and attention to their residents to make it as easy to transition as possible.  The Christian environment, which was very important to my parents and us as a family, was exactly what we were hoping for.  The staff is in constant contact with our family with any health or other issues or to just say they are having a good day.  The facility has been a life saver for us, with friendly staff and genuine personal care.  Thank you to the owner and staff for caring so much for my parents and giving us the comfort in knowing they are so well taken care of.

Southern Haven has been the perfect place for my 97-year-old mother to live.  The owner, Sophie, has created a safe, comfortable, and compassionate environment for the residents.  Southern Haven does not feel like a facility…it feels like a home, with a wonderful family atmosphere.  The staff is caring, responsive, and affectionate.  They treat the residents with dignity, and safety is of the utmost importance.  Communication with the resident’s family is prompt when a need arises.  I am most grateful to all of the caregivers at Southern Haven for taking such good care of my mom!

“Southern Haven has taken excellent care of my grandpaw. This place feels more like a home away from home for my grandpaw. We couldn’t ask for a better place for him to stay. The staff are courteous, friendly,and very attentive to my grandpaw’s needs. To be honest, we couldn’t do a better job ourselves. Anyone that is looking for an excellent 2nd home for their loved ones needs to look no further. Your loved one will be treated just like family. I can’t say enough good things about this place.””

To Sophie & Staff

My family and I want to thank you so very much for your love and attention you gave so graciously to my mother. You all made her feel loved and comfortable. All of you are doing God’s work!



When I visited Southern Haven I was taken back by their breathtaking view of a horse farm and a lake.  I immediately felt I was engulfed in an atmosphere that is filled with the caring love that is provided by the caregivers. Then I noticed the great smelling food that tasted fantastic.

That had me I just had to move in! I haven’t regretted a day in Southern Haven.  I haven’t had to worry about my doctor appointments because if I can’t find a ride Sophie or the caregivers are more than happy to help us out.

All in all if you want your family to be surrounded by caring love, the great tasting food and the breathtaking views please bring them to visit Southern Haven.

You Won’t Regret It!!

I am so glad to have found out about Southern Haven. Thanks to Sophie and the staff, the needs of the residents are taken care of at all times. I feel blessed to be here!

I moved my brother into Southern Haven in January, 2012.  I searched for a year to find a perfect fit for him.  He is 52 and too young to be in a nursing home setting.  I was so happy when I found this home.  It was a perfect fit for him and what he needs.  His doctors are very impressed with his progress since he moved into the home. All the staff at the home are very helpful and loving and the meals are great. I feel great comfort knowing he is being taken care of.
