Because Garnett Place is much older, it doesn't show as well as others in the area. However, I've spoken to several residents who seem to like it very much.

A good tour

This is a well taken care of community. The person that took us on tour was nice. This community does sit back in a wooded area and is a little harder to get to. The community we chose is closer to family.

We really liked this community when we visited. The people we met were very nice and they seem to offer some nice amenities. They have nice large apartments, however the cost was higher than what we were looking for.

comfortable Living!!

I have no complaints with how things are going for my loved one since they made the move into this community. The staff are all excellent and I am comfortable with the quality of care that she is receiving. She has been loving the social environment as well as all of the meals that have been provided for her throughout the week. I am overall impressed with this place and would recommend it to anyone.

It's Good That Mom Is Here

My mom is still adjusting to her new environment. The staff are providing care that she needs. They are doing a good job. I see that she is a little happier than before. She is happy with the meals the cook. It has been good for her becoming a resident. Its been a good weight off our shoulders. It is closer to us and that was a good thing for us.

They took good care of dad!

The staff was awesome, they really put up with a lot of stuff they did a great job. My father was not personally happy because I think he expected more than what they did. We did not realize his level of care was higher than we expected. Garnett place was a good facility and they took good care of my father while he was there for respite.

Response from Garnett Place

A very good tour!

Garnet place was a nice community but it eas multi-level, which can be a little overwhelming for some residents. It is a lower price point, and the lady that took me around was funny and helpful. It was a good tour, but not the best fit for my love one.

Response from Garnett Place

They could have done a better job of disclosing all of the information about the community.

They did not hold an orientation for mom when she moved in. They did not disclose to us that there was a fee of forty dollars per personal ride. She did not see the director until she had already been there about a week. They lock the outside doors at seven and she was not notified of this. It took them three weeks to come clean her apartment for the first time. The food is good , however they do serve small portions. The community is clean and they offer daily activities and trips out.

Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. We have addressed this with our management team and will be sorting this out with your family immediately. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to improve her stay. It is always our goal to provide a seamless move and a welcoming transition.

Not For Residents Who Need Lots of Care

My dad is moving out because the community could not offer the care that was need. The staff were honest about not be able to give the help. Otherwise the community is clean, they make good meals, and if it is needed I would recommend this community to family and friends.

Father's care

We toured this community for the care of my father. We liked the staff and they were able to answer the questions we had on the care that is offered here. The meals seemed to be appealing. They do offer activities. I suggest that other families tour this community for the care and to see if this is what they are looking for.

Looked very nice!

I toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. The facility was well kept and clean, and all of the staff I met seemed friendly and professional. We ended up selecting another community, but this is somewhere I would have considered as an option for my loved one.

The meals are intrusive.

I would like to see improvement on the meal menu. The meals are intrusive. The culinary director doesn't have a clue on how to plan a menu. She is not good at all. There are some staff members that rise above others. Some of the staff members care more than others. The apartments are nice. The facility is adequate. The meals are my main concern. At this point, I wouldn't recommend the Garnett Place.

We recognize the need for nutritious and delicious offerings at all meals, this is why we offer not only the lunch and dinner special, but also a variety of options on our "Always Available" menu.
