Tour of Bella Vista

We had a nice tour with Bella Vista. The facility is 4 floors and that was way too big for my mother, she would have never taken the elevator by herself. You also have to bring home health services in if you need any additional care. It is definitely a great place for people who are more independent.

A Great Place to Live

It is a nice place to live. The residents and staff are very friendly. It would be nice to have an additional option for assisted living to stay here longer. The food is very good and well balanced meals, and we have chefs on site.

Expectations exceeded

We love Bella Vista, it is a fantastic place. Our loved one has happy as can be there. We like how they have doctors making house calls constantly and how they have mountain home care there to help with any health issues regarding our loved one. The staff is extremely friendly and have done a great job keeping up constant communication.

My review of Bella Vista

We do think the value is very good, and we like the location and the accessibility of the community. From our understanding we do think they are able to do small activities but the main activities are limited, and we have not had the meals ourselves but they seem to be taking good care of our loved one.

Easily recommend this community

We chose Bella Vista because of the staff members, they were very friendly and helpful and the residents we saw seemed to be happy here. The apartment sizes are satisfactory for our needs. The food here is just alright, they are chef prepared meals, but we are being told we are getting something for dinner and they change it at the last second. They also do not offer enough quality foods, I am tired of chicken. But overall, I would easily recommend this community to others.

Needs Some Improvement

The facility itself is lovely. It's light, bright, airy, inviting, has room to breath, elevates mood, and there is no unpleasant odor. I feel cleanliness is an area for improvement. The commons areas, and especially the hallways, need more attention. When we first moved my loved one in, there were two staff teams. The main team was absolutely phenomenal. They were dynamic, had energy, motivated the residents, and paid close attention to everybody there. Shortly there after, there was a staff turnover and the new team falls short of what the lead team provided. I feel the new team is questionable. The food is standard in quality. There isn't enough food and they often run out of it which is just unacceptable.

This looks like the same place as Whispering Pines in Raleigh. It's a wonderful looking place, lots of windows, etc, but no real kitchen, and the same set-up with managers living on site, and dinner being like a boarding school, where you HAVE to be in your seat at a given time and then be quiet while they come in and read what is for dinner that day. Too restricted and regimented. (Also at Whispering Pines the manager was somewhat "not caring" about a lot of our issues and was almost rude about some. But that has no bearing on Bella Vista, just saying though.) Bella Vista is probably prettier because of the gorgeous setting, but still too much cookie-cutter and similar to ours here. (I love the awesome wooden floors in the apartment Tammy sent me pictures of! THAT is what an apartment should look like! Windows all over and wooden floors! LOVE IT!) Other than the whole dinner thing, and there being no real kitchen, the place itself looks real nice and I know they do a great job with the layout. You never feel lost in the halls, like at some places. It's very smartly arranged and has a nice open feeling.

Very, very, pleased!

My cousin loves living at Bella Vista. The food is fantastic, the people are helpful, and even though he is a bit of a recluse, there are tons of activities. The bus is always taking residents to fun places like the Asheville Chocolate Lounge, Papa's and Beer and activities around town. The price is very reasonable. His one bedroom apartment is 3200.00 month and that includes everything ( electricity, emergency call button, cable, housekeeping). Home healthcare comes twice a week to do his shopping and laundry for an additional small charge. My husband asked me when we are moving in!

A great place to live

Mom has been at Bella Vista about six weeks. Of course the transition from living alone to living with other people takes time. She is adjusting and I’m certain as time goes on, new friendships and interests will develope. The staff is warm, caring, and attentive. Many fun and interesting activities are offered daily. The grounds and apartments are beautiful and comfortable. If I were pressed for a downside, it would be menu choices. Often, Mom can’t eat the meals because if her sensitivity to certain ingredients. However, there is always a sandwich/soup/salad option. I would definitely recommend Bella Vista.

When you are in a place that the meals are treated as an adventure, you are in the right place. Always cloth and table ornaments of some sort. Food excellent. Employees are like family to the residence. Staff also helps with meeting people, picking classes or adventures to go on, and encouraging the residence.

Best retirement community ever!!!

My Mother suffered a stoke in Aril and was needing a place to live. I saw Joan Lundens commercial and called. Everyone was so helpful, and when they directed us to Bella Vista, it turned out to be a beautiful place! The management team is definitely called to work with the retirees living there. My mother has improved in leaps and bounds in the last 5 months. All the amenities offered far surpass the other five places we checked out We call her new home “the resort”!! A Place For Mom

We were very impressed from the drive in to the final goodbye. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The main building including the dining room and common areas are nicely designed, clean, and comfortable. The laundry rooms are accessible and clean. Mom is sensitive to odors and commented that there is no "old people smell". [name removed] is amazing. She is welcoming, made a thorough presentation, answered all our questions, and even gave us some questions to ask when we go on other tours. We came away with an understanding of the difference between assisted living and aging in place communities. We really like that she and her husband live on-site. Mom and I will do our due diligence and look at other places, however, I strongly feel Bella Vista will be her first choice.
