Things are working out pretty good.reviewed on: 01/13/2015 by Family Member
Things are working out pretty good. The staff is good, and it's a nice place. So far I don't have any complaints or concerns, everything is good.
Overall good, but front desk staff terriblereviewed on: 09/16/2021 by A
Good housekeeping, & good food. Front desk staff are rude and unhelpful. They can help with meds but not insulin so they don’t really provide diabetic care.
Couldn't Be Betterreviewed on: 08/20/2021 by Anonymous
The community is wonderful and feels like living on a cruise ship! The are very friendly. There are a lot of activities for the residents to take advantage of. The food is very good. This seems to be one of their main attraction. They cook most of the meal when you order, it seems like it at least.
Gorgeous Place but Unfriendly Tour Guidereviewed on: 11/06/2013 by Daughter
I was not impressed at all. We did not have the head marketing person give us the tour. We had the second in command and I just got the feeling she didn't even want us there. I was not pleased with that. We got in and got out. Aesthetically, it's lovely and their memory care was a house that you and I would want to live in. You didn't see the people but just the whole space and it was gorgeous. I'm an interior designer too and I thought this is gorgeous. I'm sure it's puts the relatives of the residents at ease. I think makes them feel very good.
My mom is bored out of her gourdreviewed on: 12/07/2017 by Anonymous
Everyone at this facility has been very nice thus far. My Mother is so much happier here. The facility has lovely accommodations and they even allow her to have her dog. However, she has complained about a few things she doesn’t like. She says that they need a lot more busy activities and she is bored out of her gourd. I’ve heard her say that most of the time the residents just play bingo and watch TV which isn’t much fun. My mom is blind and there have been a few instances where she has tried to get the attention of the wait staff in the dining room and they didn’t pay attention so she didn’t get served for that meal. The other thing is that she is living on the 3rd floor. She does have her dog with her and it’s really hard for her to get down the hall, on the elevator and outside with her dog. My mom is currently waiting for a room on the 1st floor. I would recommend this facility to other families.
