The right choice

The staff have been very good, sometimes they are limited in their response but it is understandable. They are always courteous, respectful, and asking if they can be of some help. The food tends to be very good and it is presented well and is served restaurant style. Everything is wonderful, it is on the pricier side but you get what you pay for. They do have some good activities provided, but I do think they could have some more intellectual activities that could be a little more challenging for those who are able to do those types of things. My cousin has yet to integrate himself in those yet, so things may change once he finds things he likes to do. He has a number of medical issues and the attention that he gets is pretty good, they check on him often. If your loved one has any medical concerns, they will be very attentive. Overall I think my cousin is pleased with the experience.... Read more

Top Notch Care for My Parents

My parents have been living in Aravilla Independent Assisted Living for about 9 months now. Aravilla helped us move them in quickly, and has helped them become comfortable. My folks can't stop talking about how good the food is, and how much better they eat than they used to. My husband and I had lunch with them there a few days ago, and it was very nice -- scallops, sweet potatoes, spinach, and salad with pound cake and berries for dessert. My folks also walked us all around to show us the various sitting and walking areas, where my dad plays pool and works out, and introduced us to the friends they had made. They had not expected to be living there, but they are content to be there now. They really love all the live music that comes in to entertain them, and appreciate how the staff take care of them.

Response from Aravilla Sarasota Independent Assisted Living

December 29, 2021

Teresa D, Thank you for the thoughtful and excellent review of Aravilla. I am thankful for your parents and the joy that they bring to Aravilla too. We contribute a lot to the activities and the food budgets because we know they are crucial for living in a community that hopefully will be a very long relationship. It should be a place to enjoy and feel good because it is home. Thank you, Carol

Excellent Facility

My Dad moved into Aravilla Assisted Living community in 2020, after selling his condo. We had checked out many other facilities prior, and both agreed Aravilla was our favorite. The marketing director was so helpful and supportive through the entire transition. Moving during the pandemic was scary and unsettling, but dad settled in and felt right at home in no time. The staff has been so helpful and supportive through his various health issues. I can always speak to the nurses, if he needs help. My dad enjoys the live music, delicious food (the chef is accommodating with his occasional requests), and staff. A beautiful, well maintained, safe facility. Thankfully covid-free, the staff works hard to keep the residents safe. We love Aravilla!

Very well run, unparalleled

My In-laws have been at Aravilla for a year and a half. They have had multiple medical issues, technical issues, memory issues etc and the staff and administrators have taken care of them like they were part of their own family. We are always able to reach someone when something happens. Having 24 hour on site management makes all the difference.

Susanne, Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review despite the challenges. I know how difficult this past year has been for your family with not being able to visit and the pandemic. As you mentioned it does make a huge difference having management onsite 24/7, please continue to reach out and call me if I can help in any way. Carol

The Best Move We Made

My husband and I moved here 2yrs ago we were down and out and unable to do the daily chores that was needed. My husband wasn't well and at the time we didn't know what was wrong. We found out that he had bladder cancer. Our friend remembered we had a long term policy. In no time at all he had gotten us an interview with a tast of the food. It was the selling point. He gets the help he needs, I recieve the help I need. The care given here is more than 5 stars.

Thoughtful and Caring

My brother and my sister-in-law (recently deceased), had been Aravilla residents for approximately two years. The attention and care they received exceeded my expectations of an ALF. The loving assistance given to my brother by the professional and courteous staff during the difficult process of his wife's demise is priceless and given me much peace of mind knowing he is being looked after well. Thank you all, [name removed], [name removed] and the entire wonderful Aravilla staff!

He loves the food( and that’s saying something!!!) as do I. I love the staff and the residents are so awesome. They are so friendly and I really enjoy going to visit my dad at Aravilla.

Wonderful facility with great admin staff!

This last year we had to put our mother into assisted living. I spent weeks visiting facilities in the area. I was less then pleased. I had pretty much given up when I came across Aravilla. [Name removed] (Director) took the time to give me a full tour and answer my long list of questions. The very day I visited I put a deposit on a room. Mom has been there a little over six months and is quite happy. Thank You to the wonderful staff who made this life changing living arrangement a joyous one!

It's Like a Cruise Ship on the Land

My family members say it's like a cruise ship on the land. Whenever they get older and need to go into independent living, they would want to go into Aravilla. One of the big factors of the resident rooms is a spacious walk-in closet, which was a must-have for our loved one. The staff is very great at communicating, and everyone I've had a chance to talk to has been fantastic. Our loved one is gaining some weight, so the food must be good if she's actually eating it! The activities calendar looks great. They do weekly field trips, and they go to a garden about once a month, which my loved one really enjoys.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are like a cruise ship on land! I agree and we are the only assisted living I know of with a live in director/nurse! Activities are a huge part of our success, live music daily enhances the lives of the residents. All the other places we go and things we do are what keeps our residents happy. Happy and Safe residents are most important. We appreciate you!

Seemed very nice, lots of activities and services, good to have on-site PT if prescribed. Seemed to have lots of nursing staff on site 24/7. Would have been nice to have a meal there to check out the food, and to meet a resident or two. The price reflects all of the amenities.
