I do not know of a better place to live, other than home. The staff is friendly and helpful, not to mention, highly competent. Recently some activities are too expensive for our budget.

I did not like this community. I just did not like the feeling that I got when you walk in and it did not seem to be very clean.

They are so caring, so friendly, and wanting to please everyone

The house keeping ladies are so sweet and loving to our mother, but they have a big roach problem. If they can just clean everything spotless and stay on top of it, the bug problem will go away, because that is one thing we are disappointed in. The staff members are so friendly to the residents, we have never seen anyone be ugly towards a residents, they all are great employees. Our loved one does say the meals are bland and have little seasoning, but we do know it is hard to please everyone with the amount of residents there and all of the their dietary restrictions. The activities director is really trying their best, we aren't sure of everything going on, but when they do have activities we do know our loved one is really enjoying them. Our loved one just started a little contest with the residents to see who could have the best fall decorations outside their door. We do wish they would start maybe a crafts corner or a quilting class for the ladies especially with the holidays coming up. It would also keep the cognitive abilities strong.

If you come here, you will love it.

I love it here, the people are friendly and warm. I came from an assisted living community and when i came here I just felt more at home with the sense of freedom. I have a first floor apartment that faces the courtyard, it is a very clean and comfortable place. My apartment has a nice floor porch, we can plate flowers here. They are very receptive to do things we like, I love picking flowers and I am able to do that here. The grounds are very well taken care of, and the manager her the lady in charge is terrific. She digs right in, serving meals to the residents and always helping residents out. She is really hands on. Also the guy underneath her is great also, super hands on. Also the dining room is very nice with a beautiful chandelier. I feel very blessed to be here.

My review of Creekside at Shallowford

Our family was able to do an in person tour and the facility was very nice, and very clean. The building itself was a little outdated and we just wanted our loved one in a place that was newer which is the only reason we did not choos Creekside. If you are worried about price, the value here is much more reasonable.

Great experience for loved ones

We absolutely love Creekside at Shallowford, the place is great. It is clean and everybody there is very friendly. It is in a convienient location to everything. Walmart is down the street, the doctors is only about 10 minutes away, and close to the hospital.

my experience at creekside

They were good at first but after about 3 weeks it went downhill. They promised transportation and it did not happen. The food quality was really bad and was served cold. I would not recommend this community until these things are fixed.

Our tour experience

Creekside at Shallowford was a beautiful facility. It just wasn’t the right fit for my loved one. They were a little more on the independent living side. So they didn’t have the type of care we needed there. But that's nothing bad on them. They were an absolutely beautiful facility.

My review of Creekside at Shallowford

Our loved was only there for a couple of weeks, and the people were very friendly and helpful. The process working up to her moving in was easy, but we just did not realize she needed more care then independent living. We realized she should of initially been in assisted living.

It was a good community while she was there

The staff members were pleasant, and the community was well kept. They did a great job keeping up on things. This facility is independent care, so don't except care takes there all the time. The meals were good enough, and we think the value was pretty good.

This is a very good place, they respect their residence and treat them very well. The rooms are a perfect size and my mother loves her apartment. When we moved here from Florida she said she went from hotel 6 to the hyatt regency
