Love Astoria! From the first steps in the door we knew this was the place for Dad. The decor, the facilities, the rooms, and especially the friendliness, both of staff and residents, made Astoria stand out above all other residences. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate us and make Dad welcome. The pricetag is high, but the quality is excellent.
My Mom has a progressive dementia and this has been a good place for her. They have a full spectrum of care in the facility so are well-experienced with these issues. The pricing is intermediate with respect to what we looked at. It is not as expensive once you move out of the Vancouver core area to Maple Ridge. They have always been clear on what things cost. There is a lot of local shopping, banks, restaurants within walking distance. But you don't have local traffic noise in the facility. The meals that I have attended are always well done. The place has always been clean and the residents cheerful and engaged. My Mom has been happy there.
I have been able to spend some weeks at the Guildford Seniors Village during the past year as a respite resident. It's one of the best places around for respite care. Well-located in the downtown part of Guildford, it's a clean and secure environment with delicious meals, excellent staff, and lots of good recreational choices. My first two-week stay was in August 2018 when I was beginning to recuperate from an aneurysm/stroke I had in November 2017. At that time, I could not do much by myself so relied on the capable and loving care given to me by everyone at the Village. My second visit was in December 2018 before Christmas. On this visit, I was able to sit on the side of the bed for a short period and feed myself with my left hand only. I was still quite needy for assistance to bathe and dress. I was taken in a wheelchair to meals and other events. Staff were always happy to help me whether it be bathing, dressing, or taking me to recreation activities. I felt very lucky to be in my 'home away from home'. My third visit to the Guildford Seniors Village was in April 2019. After seven months of physiotherapy, I had improved considerably. I was now in a walker, feeding myself, and dressing myself. However, I am 88 and still need assistance with some daily activities. The Village has been the perfect place for me at all stages of my recovery.
