A Great Place and Good Value for Your Money

It is the best place around in my community for your loved one. The food was average to good. The room was very good for my loved one. The staff was very good, and was able to get quick responses to my questions.

Better than we could have ever hoped for

A Place for Mom introduced us to Avalon. We had to find a place for our mom when the pandemic was going on, so we couldn't visit any facility. Everything was done over the phone and via FaceTime. With other places, we met with the sales director. Most were wonderfully compassionate and just lovely, but just didn't seem to be a fit. When we met with [name removed], we knew we had found the place we wanted for mom. First of all, she is a nurse and totally understood what we were going through. We were moving our mom from a horrible rehab center that treated her like a plant (just fed and watered her) to a long term facility. She gave us a lot of insight on what was going on and what we can and should expect from long term care. Since we were so anxious to get mom out of that place, [name removed] helped us expedite the analysis and got her moved in 2 days and arranged the transportation. When we were introduced to [names removed], any apprehension we had was immediately put at ease. These women and all of the staff at Avalon have been a dream come true for us. They truly treat mom like a family member. We get frequent texts from them showing us pictures of mom. We can text them at any time asking to Facetime with her. They are just unbelievably amazing. She has been there for almost 2 months and the difference in her from when she got there is like night and day. When we FaceTime with her, it's like speaking to our mom again. All the staff come by while we're chatting and say hi to us. She really wants to come home (understandably) and just yesterday, her exact words were "But I have to say, the people here are just wonderful." I thought no one could ever care for her like we could - but I was wrong. If you need a place for your loved one, you truly can't go wrong with Avalon. I would like to wrap them all up in my arms and say thank them!

I am speechless from your kind words Kathie, thank you. Our staff truly love what they do and will go to great lengths to help families feel reassured about entrusting us with the care of their loved one. The joy, dedication and compassion our staff have to provide care to individuals like your mom, helps us do what we do so well. Your words will be passed along to the Arlington location. Again thank you for your review.

Think again before you leave your loved one at Avalon

On the [date removed] marks the death of my father .He was in Avalons care for three days the staff that has the best care givers in the industry let him fall knowing he was a fall risk from the very beginning ..They waited 24 hours to get a xray machine to find out his hip was broke and died 3 days later. I wished. I had gave my dad for what it cost at Avalon , a private nurse.My dad was a ww2 veteran who fought with the 740th Tank Battalion and served with George Patton. He deserved the best and Avalon was not it !

Although it is a little pricy, it does compete with other nursing homes in the Arlington area. At Avalon, dad is in a home-like situation in a small building with 22 rooms. In his building there are about 14 patients. He is well cared for and the staff has been there for many years. There is not a lot of turnover in the staff, and that adds stability as one of the benefits of Avalon. They keep him clean, shaved, and treat him with the greatest respect. And they know the residents and their needs.He loves the food there. They gave me a list of the families that have had loved ones there to get feedback.

Thank you for the 5 star review. We think it is important to offer up a list of current and former family members to one that is contemplating placing their loved one with us. I'm glad that you are happy with our care at our Arlington/ Mansfield location. Please let us know if there is anything else that we can do in the future.

Compassionate and Loving Care

Three years ago this month, my Daddy had to be moved from a nursing home into another facility because of his Alzheimer's. They could no longer take care of him and they gave me only 1 day to find a place. I had been praying about Avalon Memory Care in Arlington because it was close to our home. I called and talked with [removed], Vice President of Avalon and he was so awesome to work with, and he was so compassionate and caring. He helped me figure out how to make it all work and we could move him in the next day and work out all of the details then. What a load off my shoulders. Daddy went home to be with the Lord on August 26, 2017 and from September 2014 until that time, he was cared for and loved by the compassionate caregivers. I never walked in for a visit that he was not dressed for the day except for a time when he had a cold and was in bed. Many times I walked in and one of the caregivers would be dancing with him, or maybe they were just assisting him with hugs and loving concern. Avalon also thought of the families by providing special events throughout the year where we could bring the extended family members together. Avalon was family for "Mr. [removed] or Papa", as many of them called him. As he lost his ability to carry on a conversation, he began to sing, not words but just a tune, and always the same thing, over and over! Never once did they complain about his constant singing because when he was singing, they knew that he was content with his "family". Alzheimer's is so difficult to experience the progression of the disease and knowing that he was so well taken care of really lifted the burden of uncertainty. We never worried about his needs being met. Many thanks to Avalon Memory Care, [removed] and all of the caregivers in Arlington #2 that crossed our paths over the past three years. God truly blessed us and we are so very grateful that He provided our Daddy with such an awesome "home" for the final years of his life. We will never forget all the special memories and loving care received at Avalon. Love in Christ, The Family of [removed]

I will never forget you and the love you showed to your father.

Good staff to Resident ratio!

Avalon Memory Care is a very beautiful and clean community. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. They take very good care of my father-in-law. The main reason we chose Avalon Memory Care is because of the staff to resident ratio. There is plenty of staff on hand and so far they have been able to handle all situations that may arise. They quickly clean up any incontinent issues the residents have inside and outside their rooms. They provide nutritious food for the residents. They have activities that residents can participate in. The staff takes my father-in-law on walks outside to enjoy the outdoors. It is a good fit for him and we feel we have made the best choice.

We are not happy with this community at this time. The staff does not always reply. This community needs more staff that will be available to assist the residents. The community is clean and the staff are nice and seem to care. We were not able to contact them when needed. The menu is appealing and they have a lot of choices. The staff is very personable and nice. We feel like they are understaffed at night. We would recommend this community to others, but more staff are needed.

Well......I just finished with a review that praises our excellent staff to resident ratio at this location. Of course this ratio exists at all 31 locations across the State of Texas into Missouri. I know sometimes it can be difficult to reach the home telephonically if all staff members are tending to our resident's needs. This has been addressed and we certainly try our best but ultimately we would prefer to continue with our resident's care needs and communicate back when things slow down a bit and have an opportunity. Thank you for the 5 star review.

For The Most Satisfied with This Care Home

My husband is getting better each day since his move to this care home. For the most I'am satisfied with everything they have done for us. When I come to visit the home, and his room are well maintained. The staff is kind, and they have been attentive, and helpful. Everything is moving in the right direction for us in this care home, and I would recommend it.

Thank you for recommending us to families looking to place their loved ones here in the Arlington/ Mansfield area. I love these Arlington locations. At the end of the day it is our multi-year staff members that make the difference. I probably sound redundant if the reader is moving from review to review but it is the truth. You can have beautiful smaller home-like environments but ultimately our staff is what makes Avalon special. This is not your constant revolving door of staff that you might see elsewhere. Please let me know if you need anything else in the future.

A great community.

I can not speak highly enough about this community. The caretakers and the hospice nurse have been great. They offer good food with good portions and they have a wide variety of options. They always have fruit on site for the residents. They offer a bible study, exercise class and they do puzzles with the residents. I would highly recommend this community.

This is a very good company and facility

We have been so fortunate to entrust the care of our Mother to Avalon. They are a wonderful facility and care greatly for their clients. The facility is very clean, and the staff is always welcoming, friendly and responsive. We have stopped in several times unannounced and have always received warm welcomes fromthe caretakers and found the facility clean and my Mom well cared for. We are blessed to have found Avalon and for the care they provide my Mom when she needs it most. Their values, customer service ethic, and pride in what they do shines. Avalon has my highest recommendation for anyone needing care for these special needs.

Very Pleased With My Mom's Care

I was very frustrated where my mom was previously located. I did a Google search on dementia care in Arlington, TX . Avalon was the first place listed. I reviewed their website, in which they happened to offer a Move In special. I spoke with Jon who was very cordial and listened to my concerns and what I was looking for in place for my mom. Once I visited the facility, I was very pleased with the layout and the number of Caregivers ratio to resident. They have the recliners so that the residence can have their feet elevated. This was an absolute plus, because my mom's ankles and feet were swollen and this really helped her tremendously. My mom has been at Avalon for almost 2 weeks and she seems very relaxed and no longer anxious. The staff is very attentive and have been there for longer than 10 years. That says a lot, as Caregiver that they enjoy what they do and really care about the residence.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. It is so nice to here that everything is working out well for you and your mother. My father, having started Avalon Memory Care in 1995, really enjoyed me reading these reviews to him until his passing in February. It is not enough to have gorgeous locations but it is the staff that makes the difference at Avalon as you mention above. The stability of decades long angels at Avalon that provide the hands on care is unheard of in this industry for the most part. Peace of mind is what we provide to families and it makes me feel so good to read this. Let me know if you need anything else in the future.

Avalon provides more personal care

We had my Mother in an assisted living. It was a nice place & I really had no problem with them. As my Mother's condition worsened she required more care than the assisted living could provide. Avalon has truly been the answer for her. They have the ability to observe her on a more constant basis due to the number of staff members to patients they have. Nothing but high praise for Avalon and the care they provide.

I received a proper tour of the community from the tour guide. I was amazed of how organized and clean the rooms and the whole community were.

We have 20 other locations across the Metroplex that might be closer but I am sure that Mallory informed you of this. I wish we had a gigantic crane that could pick up our location and move it closer to you as certainly proximity plays a key role in one's decision. Nevertheless, if we can be of any further assistance in the future do not hesitate to reach out. Take Care.

Really like the facility. Very clean and fresh smelling environment. Rooms are very nice, well maintained with nice outside views. Mother is having concerns about the distance she would have to drive from home to visit. She still drives but is 88 years old and really does not like getting on the freeway. Still under consideration.

Satisfied with care.

Grounds and outside very nice. Oldest building is getting old -- toilet sounds, slab leak within 2 weeks of moving in. My mother went without shampoo or soap for two weeks until we realized she needed some and we brought it from home. That was a bit of a shocker. Mom says the food is generally good. Touch-key on both entry and exiting areas to provide security to patients. Fortunately mom's room had a twin bed already in it, so mom gets to sleep on that. A small table and lamp was added by the unit a week later. The main area is comfortable, plenty of tables and chairs, as well as a lot of nice recliners and a large screen TV for patients to use, lots of windows in the front to look out of and for the sun to shine in.

We appreciate the 4 star review. Avalon was able to accommodate your mother in an emergency type situation and although primarily individuals bring in their own furnishings and pictures to make this home for their loved one we were able to provide bedroom furnishings while you were thrust into this situation hastily. This location was completely renovated including all of the bathrooms last year but ,unfortunately, whether it be new construction or an existing location slab leaks can occur. Not much fun.....I agree. We have shampoo and soap on hand and rest assured that during this time frame that you mention above that mom was bathed appropriately as this is what we handle as well as other activities of daily living for over twenty years. Please feel free to reach out to me in the future if I can be of any assistance. Take Care.

Wonderful facility

Avalon Memory Care in Arlington has been wonderful. I always get a "live" person when I call, not an answering machine. Everyone is very professional there and communication is not a problem. The care that my sister in law receives is excellent. She has been in 4 other facilities and the difference in care is substantial. From start to move, Michelle was excellent in the transition phase. The manager and staff are wonderful, caring and compassionate people. I also like the medical care she receives in house. So far, our experience with Avalon has been great! I don't feel like my sister in law is just another "bed" in a facility of 200 residents. This is a small facility and everyone knows each other. I also see the same staff each time I visit. There is not the usual employee turnover here and there is not the usual "large corporate" feel to this place. I would definitely recommend Avalon.

mom fell 4 times in the first 2 weeks

At Avalon Memory Care mom fell 4 times in the first 2 weeks. So I am not sure how well they are monitoring the residents. We were told they would be arranging perpetual care and we have had trouble getting paperwork settle. Dad needs social engagement at this facility. When my brother went to visit mom was sitting alone in the dark. The staff really need to engage the residents more. They have tried to be helpful when I call to talk to mom. They need some staff education. When I came to visit the hospital a staff member was there with mom, but we probably pay for that. We were lead to believe the staff would be attentive and provide the nursing care that mom needs and this just doesn't seem to be happening. I really hope things will improve. I really want to see them monitoring the residents a lot more.

Although I appreciate your review it is well known from the local family members that have the ability to visit their parents on a daily basis that there are inaccurate statements that have been posted on this site. The history of falls that your mother had previous to Avalon has been curbed dramatically since her entrance. We cannot prevent all falls as there is not a caregiver behind her at all times but our supervision has prevented many of them. Perpetual care has been arranged. Your father is flourishing at Avalon and is very happy. Our long term staff members know dementia and certainly meet the minimum standard as mandated by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services but we actually go well above and beyond these licensed standards. Our staff is so incredibly caring that, although not mandated, they go on their off time to visit their " extended families" at the hospital to make sure that they are eating, drinking, and seeing a familiar face at absolutely no cost to the family. Your statement above that " we probably pay for that" seems to be an attempt to create a positive into a negative. This disease and its process can be so difficult not only on the ones afflicted with this disease but on the ones that love them the most. Sometimes we , as the provider, can catch the brunt of this frustration and that is ok. We will continue to care for your parents to the best of our ability knowing that we are not perfect. We are dealing with an imperfect situation but with communication between the local family, the doctors, I promise you that we will provide the most loving care to your parents as we have provided to others for twenty years now. Take Care.
