As a widow living alone in a large split-level house for several years, my Mother became aware she could no longer maintain herself and we began the search for an adult living community. We chose the HarborChase for its proximity to all needed facilities, plus it was centrally located for her family to visit. We were amazed how well she has adjusted to her new life when she moved in. Even now, at 93, she has never been in better health or better spirits. She enjoys her daily activities and all the new friends she has made. Her great grand children thinks she lives in a palace and they are not far wrong. HarborChase is clean, accommodating and thoroughly dedicated to the welfare of their patrons. Best of all, we know Mom is still independent while under excellent care.
My dad moved to Harbor Chase from another local Assisted Living Facility almost 5 years ago. He liked the linen tablecloths and "real" napkins. They had just opened and the place was and remains absolutely beautiful. Dad wasn't really cut out for assisted living life when he moved in as he was quite independent, stubborn, and sometimes a bit grouchy. The staff would have none of it and worked on him tirelessly to get him more involved. In short order we witnessed quite a change as dad was no longer available because of the afternoon poker game, the field trips to all sorts of destinations, and other scheduled events. We were relived, happy, and even a bit surprised at the change they were able to make as he seemed to embrace the assisted living experience. I cannot speak highly enough about the staff! HarborChase opened my eyes to an entire new concept and I would without hesitation recommend HarborChase of Sarasota to anyone.
My mom moved into HarborChase of Sarasota's Assisted Living two years ago. We loved HarborChase since we first walked through the front door. We are always greeted with a smile. My mom loves her apartment. She always tells me she is heading home to her apartment. She loves having dinner in the dining room with her friends. Chef [name removed] always prepares such wonderful meals. We love joining mom for Sunday brunch and she loves hosting us. More importantly we never have to worry about mom being taken care of. We know she is always safe and happy at HarborChase.
HarborChase is the best thing that happened to our mom. She has lived here for 5 years. She started in Assisted Living and has recently moved to Memory Care. We couldn't be happier with the Memory Care Director [name removed] and the Activities Director [name removed]. Her stay in Memory Care has surpassed our expectations. She is thriving.
We are NEW residents and it couldn't feel more like a brand new home in a great new neighbourhood. Residents and staff alike have been greeting us with open arms. The diverse staff has taken the challenge, adapted, and is still working to improve our experience after our first few weeks. Couldn't be happier. Thanks so much [name removed], [name removed], and [name removed] for leading the way !
I think the value for the cost is overly expensive. The facility is needing some development. There's no pool or outdoor gardens. Everything is just flat and uninspiring. They don't make the residents' beds early on in the day, and the service is inconsistent. I think I was overly optimistic at first and realized that a couple of months in. Some of the staff are great, and some are not. I think their biggest problem is understaffing. And the food is not very good at all. This is an expensive place, so I'm a little disappointed in that. The medical doctor also lacks follow-up and execution. But I think the staff there are friendly and mean to do well, and they seem to do the best they can despite being short-staffed.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We are sorry your experience did not match your expectations. Please reach out to us at (941) 468- 2838 with any further comments, concerns, or suggestions. Again, we appreciate you taking the time to review our community.
I believe they are short staffed. The staff that are there are wonderful. They have wonderful food here for the residents. There are lots of different activities available for the residents to choose from. The community tries to accommodate and see to all the resident's needs. I think it is good as they try to go above and beyond for the residents and families.
Really like the facility in close proximity to our house. The people were really lovely especially the activities director who we think my dad would really enjoy spending time with. This facility is at The top of our list
Very friendly and informative staff with lovely facility and amenities. Upbeat, active environment that encourages family visits! Nice range of options for apartments and levels of care. A+
My dad moved to Harbor Chase from another local Assisted Living Facility about 5 years ago. He liked the Linen tablecloths and "real" napkins. They had just opened and the place was and remains absolutely beautiful. Dad wasn't really cut out for assisted living life when he moved in as he was quite independent, stubborn, and sometimes a bit grouchy. The staff would have none of it and worked on him tirelessly to get him more involved. In short order we witnessed quite a change as dad was no longer available because of the afternoon poker game, the field trips to all sorts of destinations, and other scheduled events. We were relived, happy, and even a bit surprised at the change they were able to make as he seemed to now embrace the assisted living experience. We were happy since his medications were monitored and dispensed and with the fantastic dining room he was eating more healthy than he had in years. I cannot speak highly enough about the staff, I just do not know where to start. From the people that maintain the facility, the medical staff, the dining staff, I could go on for way too long with compliments about all of them. My original thoughts of Assisted Living in general were of my grandmother basically locked in a nursing home for her last years. HarborChase opened my eyes to an entire new concept and I would without hesitation recommend HarborChase of Sarasota to anyone looking for assisted living for themselves or a relative.
The staff who are here are very helpful and they really do care and are trying their hardest. They do seem to be understaffed, especially in the evenings. For a small organization, they are very compartmentalized with their duties. Overall, I am pleased with the quality of care and I would recommend them to others who are looking.
[Name removed] was wonderful and was thorough in her explanation. I found the place to be clean and welcoming. The room I felt while it had a nice layout was a bit dark. Additionally, it was pretty pricey with lots of a la carte. Given I need to leave on the weekend, it sound like a possible place for the future, but a bit further away from some central things - i.e. the mall, restaurants, etc.
Our mother was extremely reluctant to give up her beautiful home and relocate to an Assisted Living facility. The management and staff at Harbor Chase have, from her arrival, been welcoming, kind, engaging, and helpful. As time has passed she has become very comfortable and happy, largely due to an attentive, caring staff, friendly residents, a lovely apartment, a large outdoor courtyard which she frequents several times a day, and an attractive and well run facility. She has found a new home. We are well aware that difficult challenges lie ahead, and hopefully, Harbor Chase can meet her needs for years to come. We have seen a fair amount of turnover, and what appears to be some understaffing, especially in the dining room. We have heard that in the Memory Care unit, understaffing is also an issue but do not have first hand experience with that unit. It is difficult for people to stick with low paying jobs in a competitive labor market. But people must go where they can make the most money and that appears to be a factor in the turnover. The new chef at Harbor Chase has infused the dining room with energy and delicious fare and, we are told, is a delightful personality. We are aware that regulations and rules dictate many policies. Knowing that having a purpose in life is essential to all our well being, we wish the residents had more opportunities to engage in activities that better the lives of both Harbor Chase residents and, indeed, the Sarasota community at large. We, as family members, would be very willing to participate in, and support, such activities. All in all, it has been a very positive move for our mother, and our family, and we are grateful to Harbor Chase. We look forward to continuing to be partners in our mother's care and participating members of the Harbor Chase community. Sincerely, [Name removed] Sarasota, FL [Name removed] Washington, DC [Name removed] San Francisco, Calif.
My uncle has been in memory care since April it was a very difficult decision as I live in another state I feel comfortable as I can under these circumstances I feel the staff have been very supportive and show their concern for his care The only issue I have has been a lack of communication from upper staff but when he was going through a very difficult situation they certainly stepped up and they were right there to bring the situation to an amicable solution on behalf of him

After my husband was a resident for 7 days, I received zero return on my payment of $8270.00. He was so unhappy there that I moved him to Aravilla and he and our family are so happy we did.

During the recent Hurricane Irma I was privileged to observe first hand how the extremely dedicated Care Partners and caring Management Staff made the most of every opportunity to insure the health, safety and well being of each and every resident. This despite the extreme circumstances ( at times no power, no A/C, no phone, cable TV or internet, etc.). With over 300 people in the building at various times, this daunting challenge was more than met by an extremely capable staff, management and nursing team, and an Executive Director who stayed at the property for over a week, as did many other managers! Care for the residents, both assisted living and memory care was indeed Job #1. Ask yourself, in any future major storm, would you want your loved one at other place other than HarborChase of Sarasota? I think not!
