Harbison Shores Review
The staff provide a good mix of activities for the residents. My dad is finally joining in and enjoying himself. While I wish that my dad were with me, I can't do things for him like Harbison Shores can! I still struggle with having to place my daddy in a facility. I am very appreciative

Harbison Shores Review
The staff provide a good mix of activities for the residents. My dad is finally joining in and enjoying himself. While I wish that my dad were with me, I can't do things for him like Harbison Shores can! I still struggle with having to place my daddy in a facility. I am very appreciative to a Place For Mom for providing the resources we needed. It made our search so much easier.

Overall pleased with few improvements.
The staff are great and respond to questions and concerns quickly. I do think they are short staffed. As far as the facility, they have a calendar of activities but few participate so often my parent won't go or they don't have anyone to lead the event. The food is just okay most days and don't always have condiments available. No choice in meals. Everyone eats the same thing.

Not recommended
My parents left after a couple of days. They were told that the apartment would be thoroughly renewed, including a new refrigerator. When they were given the key to move in, a number of repairs had not been made. And, the refrigerator was not replaced. During her first day there, my mother fell over a scale left in a passageway. This eroded their confidence in the place. When we presented photos and a list of problems in the apartment, they did a good job correcting them. But, the damage had been done. Based on our experience, I do not recommend them.

Caution
There was a fire. We were there. We helped evacuate the residents. It was cold, but they had to wait outside. Staff found tablecloths to cover some of the residents. They were given cold cans of sprite. When the families were informed of the fire, they were told the residents were given warm blankets and coffee. This did not happen.

My mom and dad recently moved to assisted living at Harbison Shores. My family and I are very grateful for all the staff has done to make tis a smooth transition. Everyone has been extremely helpful. Based on our observations so far, we feel they are being well cared for and this is the right place for them.

My mother was seriously ill in [date removed]and was hospitalized for three weeks with a two weeks of rehab. Harbison Shores evaluated Mom at rehab and determined she could move back. Harbison Shores was very good about informing me about my options and what they could do to help Mom. She then went to rehab and was able to return and is doing well.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Harbison Shores

Harbison Shores offers Studio and 1 Bedroom. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Harbison Shores 9.6 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
