My Dad is so happy here

My dad has lived at Garden Plaza for 6 months now. He came from another community and is so much happier now that he is here! He has so many friends, goes on a lot of the outtings, and activities. He's so much happier and has a great quality of life. We are glad we found this place.

Stay away, look for another place

Garden Plaza is a terrible place. The management has no talent. Be very careful about charges made by them, especially initial charges, I found out they were scamming me out of money and they did not like when I asked for that back.

A safe and secure independent living for my aging parent

We moved our parents here 2 years ago and unfortunately lost our father only 6 months after the move. The staff has been amazing to our mom and has provided a safe living situation for her. Whenever we have had any problems the staff has been very responsive in resolving any issues. The manager of this facility has been amazing with my mom and we could not be happier with her living arrangements.

Definitely Check it Out

They're very responsive, and the place is kept very clean. It's almost like living in a hotel - it's just beautiful. It is a little tricky not having things like a little convenience store on-site, or a buddy system for them to show you around. I think those things would have been helpful. But they're doing a great job. The food is a little bland. But they're so amazing otherwise. They offer a lot of activities. And it's a great value.

Tour of Garden Plaza

Our tour with Garden Plaza was good and the facility itself is beautiful. We were looking for something that was smaller and did not offer too much, so we went with a different facility. It was just not the right fit for her.

I am a family member of a loved one at Garden Plaza Aurora- my mom has been living there for a very long time. The newest ED is a fine woman and leader - and I appreciate what’s she’s done for my mom. Most importantly though… assisted living is a mess and [name removed]the business office director was nothing but rude to my mom when asking about a bill.

Good experience

We chose Garden Plaza at the time because they had availability and they were willing to take him in and care for him. He started out in independent living and quickly moved over to assisted living. The staff members were there to really protect my father and they did a great job at it, I felt safe having him here. I would recommend them to others who are looking.

Average Place

If your loved one needs more care, this is probably not the right place. My loved one ended up not being able to get out of bed, and they would bring food to the rooms, but she couldn't get to the food where they dropped it off. If you can, I would recommend asking lots of questions about what the staff can and cannot do as far as care goes. The housekeeping and dining staff were just okay, but the front desk staff were great.

Wonderful Home For Mom

Moving mom to Garden Plaza of Aurora has brought us peace of mind knowing she is safe, happy and comfortable. Garden Plaza of Aurora offers a beautiful home setting with caring staff members who strive to create a safe, clean, comfortable home for their residents. Apartments are well kept. The facility itself is very nice and has a feel of a being "at home". There are a number of floor plans to fit any need. Our mom is happy and contented here. She loves the dining experience as well as activities she looks forward to participating in daily. She is a socially engaged, active, 90- year-old who is truly enjoying her life at Garden Plaza. We feel fortunate that we found this community .

nice facility, lacks communication among staff/departments

Garden Plaza of Aurora is really an impressive facility. It is very clean, nicely furnished and well taken care of. There seems to always be some type of activities offered. However they seem quite repetitive so i can see how residents could tire of them easily. The food seems adequate and they do offer regular set menu items in addition to the daily specials. The care givers are very nice and friendly - however they always seem rushed with all residents. Here's the issue - there is horrible inter-department communication. It's difficult to get an answer without being sent around in circles. A message left for the billing office 3 days ago and still no callback. If they could improve inter office/department communication - i would give a higher rating.

Food has been an issue since my parents moved in 5 years ago. They are currently training a server with no experience to be their new chef...horrible food. Constant staff turnover. Facilities are lovely. Rent raised annually regardless of capacity. Staff willingness to work with unique health needs extraordinary.

A Loving and Caring Place

In 2010, my Mother moved into the Independent Living Facility at Garden Plaza of Aurora. My Mother, brother and sister have been extremely pleased with the quality of the facility, the professionalism of the staff, excellent entertainment and activity options available and the quality of the food. It has been important to us that my Mother was able to quickly get involved and find wonderful people and activities. In late 2014, my Mother had to move into the Assisted Living Facility at Garden Plaza of Aurora. The staff made this transition smooth and uneventful for my Mother and the family. The quality of the assistance to my Mother has been outstanding. We have no worries about her getting quality care or being safe and we receive feedback as necessary from the staff. The staff cares about the people living there. I find it a pleasure to visit with the staff whenever I am in the facility visiting my Mother. She has been able to continue with the activities and entertainment she got use to and is able to take occasional shopping trips with the other residents. My family and I recommend you take a look at Garden Plaza of Aurora if you are looking for an Independent or Assisted Living Facility for yourself or a family member.

POSSIBLE OPTION - Clean and beautiful inside and out. 6-year-old building. Age in place through AL and skilled nursing. Two meals included. Nice new full kitchens and washer/dryer in unit. Beautifully appointed public spaces including library/computer lab, billiards room, numerous sitting areas with fireplaces, nice furniture. WiFi throughout building. Separate garage (with space for storage) for $50. Would need 2-bedroom unit. Balconies. Courtyard with nice gardens and little putting green. Drawback is apartment layout with no place for even small table and chairs and smaller seeming rooms (except for bigger kitchen). Half-hour drive from home in traffic. Contact is Mike - nice energetic young guy from Chicago.
