Danberry @ Inverness is an impressive place! The outside of the building, the landscaping, the cafeteria, the library, and the reception areas are all beautiful, clean, and inviting! The kiosk check-in is also a nice touch. The employees were exceptional -- accommodating, informative, friendly, and professional. The only thing I would change is to add a little of that building beauty to the memory care area, maybe add a little color? I would definitely bring my loved one to live at Danberry!

Very comfortable place to live

This is the place to be if you are looking for a safe relaxing environment. There are numerous activities to enjoy and the other residents are welcoming and friendly. Or you can do nothing at all if that is what you want. Transportation is available to take you where you need to go.

Would recommend

Even during this past year with the pandemic our experience has been great and our loved one feels that all the staff members are very friendly. They are trying to bring back some activities and we do think the value is fair. However, the food is the biggest complaint among the residents. It is not good and they have been having troubles keeping a kitchen staff team as well as a chef.

Finding dad the perfect home, where he is the happiest he has ever been

This is absolutely a lovely place for your parents to call home. When it comes to the rooms they are the best that we have seen. The layout of the rooms are large, roomy and well accommodating for those even in wheel chairs. The food is excellent and well balanced, they also are accommodating to each guest. Danberry is absolutely fantastic.

Amazing Place

The Danberry is a wonderful facility. My folks moved into independent living several years ago. My Dad subsequently moved into memory care and Mom is still in independent living. The staff are caring and kind. The facility is immaculate inside and out. Leadership is excellent and have done a tremendous job keeping us informed during Covid. Service is top notch. So fortunate to have the Danberry.

Leaving your home and moving to a new city is a very stressful time (especially at 82). The staff at Danberry made this transition wonderful for my mother. She has lived at Danberry almost 4 years and her only regret is that she didn’t move sooner!

I have visited the community many times over the years and words cannot explain the warm and fuzzy feeling I’ve experienced during my visits. The staff and residents both are very welcoming and friendly, you can tell that everyone is truly happy! From my experiences, their customer service has always been first class! The residents have beautiful outdoor courtyards with waterfalls and a walking trail for those who enjoy the outdoors. It’s truly a beautiful community with a lot of amenities for residents to enjoy including a fitness studio and a heated saltwater pool! I highly recommend Danberry for anyone considering a move!

looking for a nice place for my parents

Danberry is a beautiful place and has a lot of activities for the ones who live there. We visited in February of this year looking for a place for my parents. We had just started the process, but at this time, Danberry is #1 on our list. We are hoping to make another visit very soon. The employees and residents were very nice and friendly.

Thanks for loving our Mom so well!

My 87 year old mother has been a resident of Danberry's Independent Living section for 5 years. My only deduction in rating is because the carpet in her entry way has become stained from use and resists cleaning efforts. The community of friends with whom she eats and interacts has been one of the most significant benefits since moving from her home where she was alone. She especially enjoys eating with them in the dining room and joining them for group exercise classes. On-site worship services and special programs are also significant for her spiritual and emotional health. During the last two years Danberry has allowed our family to join Mom in singing Christmas carols in the main common area and on her hallway. As mom's memory has deteriorated, the staff has worked to help her- and my siblings- in many ways. They know her by name, and are alert to make sure that she is not having any difficulties when she is outside of her apartment. The team in resident services have walked with us through her fluctuating, increasing need for aides/companions. Mom has a favorite who is with her for several hours each day. She cooks meals, washes clothes and helps in many other ways. She loves Mom as if she was a grandmother. She is a trusted friend for not just Mom, but also our family. The aides help us to know if there are problems or needs we need to address. The transportation services staff have been pleasant, accommodating and reliable in getting Mom to medical appointments, whether in the local area or downtown at UAB. [name removed] (not her real name) has been indispensable as we have contemplated the next step in Mom's care. She kindly gave my siblings and me a tour of the Assisted Living and Memory Care units, explaining all of the details and considerations. She has communicated well whenever rooms come available to see if we are ready to make a transition from Mom's current living arrangement. We all understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything. As a physician I have been pleased to see how carefully and considerately Danberry has acted to protect their residents and staff, while still allowing important face-to-face interactions for families. Our family had reservations when we encouraged Mom to move to Danberry several years ago. In retrospect it was the correct decision, and one which has improved Mom's life- and therefore ours- and has been made easier by the love and care provided by the Danberry team.

Not All It Is Advertised To Be

We were so hopeful this would be a great living experience fo mom. It is an absolutely gorgeous setting. Unfortunately (maybe partially due to COVID-19) it was not. They DO have a first class staff and excellent fresh meals which the advertising staff touted. But it was also sold to us as a highly active Assisted Living which it was not. We were told mom would have access to exercise room with staff fitness staff, pool for water walking, art room for real art teacher led lessons and general access and an Activity Director who was very involved. Unfortunately most of these did not occur. Mom was never given the opportunity to meet other residents until about 6 weeks after living there mostly in solitary existence. We as a family were not given any guidance or direction when she first moved in about who to contact for Drs appointments or for any problems or concerns. No welcome information packet was provided so we were mostly in the dark on what was going on. I guess a lot of family’s just move their family member in and forget them. We are highly involved with Mom. Thank goodness for FaceTime - that’s the only respite mom got from what she felt like solitary confinement. Mom is a very active person but was not really given the opportunity to actively engage in the community until after I turned in our move out notice. The Fitness director was great with engaging her after about 6 weeks. She loves to be outside and does a lot of walking but the community is built on a hillside so walking the grounds was very hard since she needs a walker to get around. The monthly cost was at the top of our budget limit and we decided it was not worth the benefit to her at the total expense of her happiness. Too much isolation and loneliness. We purchased a Medacube pill dispenser and installed cameras to ensure medication is taken (which was our main concern) for a lot less than the monthly Danberry cost and she is much happier in her current setting.

Anonymous, we regret to hear that you are displeased with your recent experience with us. We are committed to delivering superior services to our residents. The COVID pandemic did create challenges, as it has for so many. Although we are committed to an environment of resident safety, we are sorry if any safety measures created a difficult transition into our community. Thank you again for taking the time to let us know how we can improve. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time if you would like to review. We hope you will consider us again in the future. Please take care. Executive Director Jaclyn Gardner

What a Relief!

We have been impressed for over a year at how well Danberry cares and provides for its residents. My Mother and her sister share a 2BR, 2BA independent living apartment. They are so relieved to have everything they need at Danberry without needing to get out, except for dental and eye appointments. A doctor and an Audiologist schedule appointments at Danberry. Most of all we are thankful the Administration and staff have kept all the residents COVID-free during the pandemic.

Mom's Happy Place ...

Having a parent move from the home they've lived in and loved for many years is never an easy choice. The staff and management at Danberry at Inverness understand this and make it their #1 priority to provide the love and support needed to make the transition easy. But their caring and support doesn't stop at transition, it continues on a 24/7/365 basis. From building friendly / family-like relationships with the residents, to the wide variety of activities provided, to the food and food services and even to rapid service for every day needs and repairs, Danberry's staff provides an outstanding quality of life standard. The facilities are beautiful throughout and sparkling clean. Apartments are quiet, well-built and a variety of floor plans makes it easy to find just the right place for your needs. In the year Mom has lived at Danberry she has made many new friends and is very happy with her new home ... and that's what counts.

Danberry Assisted Living

We moved our mother here April 2018 and her care and health have improved greatly as well as giving us a piece of mind. The care is excellent. She enjoys playing bingo and going to the exercise classes. Also, the food is great and she enjoys going to the diner to eat and speak with everyone. She loves to sit in the hall and watch people come and go. We have been very pleased and I think she is truly happy.

People Make the Difference

Upon entering the Danberry complex, where one is enveloped in a nurturing environment of outdoor beauty and indoor harmoniousness, the people stand out: the residents and most particularly the staff. [Name removed], the move in/ sales coordinator, will greet you, and immediately there's a feeling that a very sensitive and caring human being is helping you with an important decision. Once, if a decision is made to move to Danberry, [name removed] is still there, and will be there, to assist with any issues. I have great peace of mind knowing that, being 350 miles away, I can call [name removed] with any concern.

Overall the facility is beautiful and one of the top ones in the area. I toured a lot of them. I do think the monthly dining could be revised. Would be nice to have a plan A and B. Maybe the plan B has 20 meals each vs. the 30- something just a little smaller. My parents hardly get all of their meals in which at the end of the day ends up being a waste of money. Danberry is the most expensive facility in the area and cost is something my parents are always mentioning but its one of the best if not the best. You get what you pay for! The dining hall is always slow for service but the service is great-- just a slow wait for food to be brought out. Great tasting food! I have not been impressed with the physician on site. I think she does a disservice to the Danberry name- seems unorganized, not around a lot and I scheduled my parents to have their health care elsewhere-- I did not trust her services. I'm honestly not sure how she still has her license. Wish they had more creative/art classes- I think that suits alot of the demographic whether they are artistic or not. Some are not mobile but can always sit and do art of some kind. Wish they had a few garage facilities for an extra fee- some of the other facilities had that option. I know my dad likes his car parked inside- that was an issue for him during their transition.

Nearly perfect

Generally, I'm very pleased to have found Danberry. The staff is very helpful and receptive of suggestions. The residents are friendly, enjoyable and engaging (with minor exceptions). The facility is comfortable and well maintained. Our transition from a large house to a 2-bedroom apartment was very smooth. We don't miss all those big rooms and large property that required constant attention. Of course, nothing is perfect but I can't get too excited over small things.
