Unfortunately Bella Vista did not work out for our loved one, it seemed like they told you everything they offered and would do but none of that was happening. It seemed like they just left residents in their rooms or by a TV, so it was not a very stimulating environment. If your loved one is bed ridden this would be a good place, but for those who may be more independent or active this would not be the place. There was a lot of hallways inside the building so it seemed claustrophobic. They said they had a bus service that would take the residents to and from grocery stores and doctors appointments twice a week but that did not happen. If it did happen you would have to sign up to use it so it was just difficult to use.
I toured Bella VIsta and it was a very nice facility, one thing I really liked was that they have shuttered windows in the apartments. I also think that you are also able to transition to assisted living but stay in the same apartment. I did not choose the facility because it was too expensive.
The community is very nice and the meals look wonderful. They have a lot of really cool activities, our loved one does not always participate in them but we can see the other residents enjoying themselves in all the activities they have to offer.
Overall I think that Bella Vista was a good facility and the staff members were very nice and easy to work with. We did have some issues, but they seemed to want to help and get things resolved quickly. I would recommend to others who are looking.
It has very secured and open lush grounds. It is very well laid out. The staff are excellent. The food is average with a variety and flexible meals times. They offer numerous activities, daily movies in a really plush movie theater. I would highly recommend this community to other families.
Very interesting place. I was told that it was a retirement home for nuns at one time. Every apartment was the same size and layout. Now that it is a retirement living center all of the one bedroom apartments are the same size, same layout. They do have two bedroom units where they have knocked out the wall between two one bedroom units. The remodel was done so well that you would not know that this was how they accomplished this. The place was clean, very well maintained. They have four floors with activity type rooms on three of the floors. One floor has a fitness center, craft room and theater, another a library, multi-purpose room and man cave, the ground floor has a coffee lounge and beauty/barber shop. What makes this place stand out in my opinion is their dining set-up. Their restaurant is open from 7 am to 7 pm and you can go in at any time and get something to eat or a snack. It is table service like in a regular restaurant, they have a wide menu selections, and you are not limited on how much or how frequently you can eat, and it is all included in your monthly rent. They had several activities going on while I was there and I was invited to join their line dancing class.
Unfortunately no one will there when I arrived for a tour but one of the tenants showed me their 2 bedroom 2 bath apt. with a washer and dryer. Loved the place but be difficult with our two dogs as we would have to bring them out every time they needed to go potty.
The 24 unit assisted living portion of the facility is wonderful. Perfect size for that comfortable family feeling. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Having evaluation next week to see if we qualify for facility. :o)
Beautiful facility - [name removed] was very good at her job. The only drawback is no transitional help when loved one needs assisted living.
The compassion and true kindness that all employees exhibit is amazing. I am especially impressed with the assisted living employees. [Name removed] and [Name removed] who work with more advanced care are simply wonderful. They have a great knowledge about medical and social concerns!! Very impressed.
Very nice. Good layout. Good menu selection. Nice rooms. Good community. Excellent value. Very responsive lift and assist care. Friendly staff. Impressive.
Love this place. [name removed] is great to work with and made our tour a success.
My friend LOVED this facility because it was bright and cheery with wonderfully warm and friendly people. [name removed] showed us around and is an amazingly caring individual. The price was the only reason my friend did not choose this facility.
Great facility overall. Definitely had many care level options. [Removed] was thorough in her tour with me. I rated this facility as highest potential for my families use.
Overall, our experience with Bella Vista has been mixed. There have been some disappointments, and some things that I feel they have done extremely well. Some of the promises that were made when we moved in have not happened. I also feel that the dining experience could use improvement. They do not provide any kind of menu for the residents and the staff seems to have very low morale. The transportation is also not as constant or extensive as we were led to believe. Aside from these items, I feel that the facility has been updated very nicely, and I thought that the person who toured with us did a superb job. My loved one felt very welcomed here, and they did a great job helping her transition. There are some things that could use improvement, but there are other things that they extremely well here.
My mother and I are very happy with everything at Bella Vista. The facility itself is very clean. I recently had a meal for Thanksgiving there and the food’s flavor was good. It was nice and I walked away satisfied. They have breakfast all day and they have a menu that changes a bit from time to time. I know my mother likes their salads. They also have an activities signup sheet and they have a bus for group trips. My mother definitely takes advantage of their care services for her doctor’s appointments. Typically they prefer them to book appointment on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
Newly renovated, great atmosphere.
I toured Bella Vista while looking at places for my loved one, and I liked it really well. They had a lot going on there by way of activities like painting classes, theatre, outings, and other events. It seems like a lively community, but they were not able to meet my loved one's needs, we did not move there.
I enjoyed touring this community it was nice and clean. The staff was helpful with my questions. But I had one closer to my family that I went with.
My brother is very happy at Bella Vista. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. The residents are nice to be around to share and enjoy calendar events. There is always sometime to do. They have a monthly Mass for Catholics as well as Holy Communion distribution once a week. The restaurant is open 7 AM-7 PM and offer a variety of entrees. Housekeeping is excellent and when there is a problem encountered, it is handled fairly quickly and professionally. [Removed] is very charming and pleasant to work with.
