Review ofThe Homestead at Hickory View Retirement Community
4.9

I have experience living in this type of community in three different states. I find Homestead to be outstanding! It is kept clean inside as well as out. Very pleasant to live in. I have to use a scooter and am so fortunate the bus has a lift and I can get to my Doctor appointments as well as shopping etc. This small community does not have taxi service and without the Homestead bus I would not be able to get out, which I feel is so important to my happiness. They also provide many different activities and entertainment everyday. They have welcomed my dog with open arms and lots of treats. The staff is exceptional and genuinely concerned in making us all comfortable., I can say Homestead has given me the best home of all the places I have lived. Thank you Homestead. Konny

They are very professional, very clean, and any time I call they tell me to call anytime, that it's never a bother for them. They let me know if my loved one needs something. Communication is great. I don't think I would want any other place to be caring for my loved one. We're in the memory care portion of the community. The staff sends pictures to the family when our loved one is participating in activities, and we can comment on those pictures and ask questions. The staff make themselves very available to us. Every single one of the gals I've talked with has been great. I feel like the cost is worth it, and it's pretty reasonable comparing it with what other people tell me. It's been total peace of mind for me, and totally worth it.

Park Place oversells itself and they don't always do what they say will do. I believe the activities are limited and they are short on staff on the weekends and evenings. They aren't checking on my loved one every 2.5 hours as they said they would to assist with cleaning. Overall I think I found a good place for my loved one. They are very friendly here.

It was a good experience. I thought it was a good community for assisted living. The staff was very friendly, including to all visitors. And they were very accommodating with questions and providing help. The facility was nice. It had an atrium that was very nice, and there were a lot of outdoor features, so it was pleasant to sit outside. The grounds were very nice.

My mother has a great network of friends and staff at this facility. We call it the resort because it’s like vacation to us. Someone is cooking for her, cleaning for her and doing her laundry. She is happy and healthy and we know she is well taken care of. I would recommend this resort to anyone that asked. No place is absolutely perfect. And while we have had a few minor glitches, they are always promptly addressed and taken care of immediately. I couldn’t ask for better.

Although she really probably needs skilled nursing care, they do such a good job with her that I don't want to move her. They do everything they can to keep her safe and are very caring.

They are very friendly, and they know my mom's personality, her likes and dislikes, and they work around her transitional stages of dementia, which she's going through more lately. I would definitely recommend them 100%. The care they have provided has been very good. The staff can be hard to get ahold of, but whenever I need something, they're good about making it happen. My mom doesn't complain about the food, and it seems like they're really good about getting her what she wants to eat. They were one of the least expensive places that we looked at but a great value.
