It's was a difficult transition period, but once we got on the same page as the staff we were so much happier. The facility is good and the location nice, quite, and close enough to the country that you don't feel so city. Overall we are happy with our decision. And would use a place for mom again.
My family has been very pleased with the care our mother receives at the Grand Ledge Independence Village. She spent five years in the independent living section which worked well for her. It was good to know she would have her dinners in the dining room each night and still be able to continue her love of cooking in her own apartment. There were many activities which made it easy for her to make friends. The past two years she has been in the Harbors area where she has enhanced living. The staff helped make the move as easy as possible for her. She often says she feels very safe there and feels like the people sincerely care about her. The director has always been extremely helpful when I had any questions or concerns.
Our family was quickly impressed with Independence Village. My grandmother lived there. She was accustomed to a busy lifestyle and fairly luxurious surroundings. The staff made her feel welcome, her home became comfortable and the dining room was one of her favorite places. We even celebrated family gatherings there. I would recommend and would choose it for our family again.
Independence Village of Grand Ledge is so welcoming and friendly. The staff and residents are always smiling and happy. The facility has fun and meaningful activities for the residents, and the building's flowers look awesome!
IVGL is the type of environment where one would love to live - they have fun and varied activities and entertainment as well as special events. The environment is maintained very well and the food appears to be exceptional. The staff and residents all appear to be friendly and happy.
We chose Story Point because of the sincerity that I saw in the staff and the time we were put in here was during covid and the hospice care was very excellent and they were very compassionate towards the residents as well as the families. My mom enjoys the meals but I do think that they could use more variety and have more choice. They do a great job with their activities and always have something going on. Overall I would recommend to others who are looking and already have.
Has a good staff. Good bunch of people work here. Everyone tries to be helpful. The food is also great.! I like eating in the dining room.
My late great-grandma loved living at IV. She thought the staff was friendly, the food great, and the overall environment clean and welcoming. I wholeheartedly agree with here. It is definitely a top-of-the-line facility with wonderful care and thoughtful staff. I would recommend IV to anyone looking for a great senior community.
Our two-bedroom apartment is very comfortable. The services, such as house cleaning, food, activities, and contact with staff are excellent. All of these promote a family enrioment. Many levels of care is available.
We appreciate the availably and use of the shuttle for dr appts. Some of the residents need more intense care. We need some updates of the common area furniture. Sometimes we need a faster response to maintenance requests for our common area. Sidewalk and entrance area concrete need filling in cracks.
Nice - friendly and helpful staff. Good food. Clean and convenient public areas. Homey atmosphere.
Quality of service is great especially during pandemic. Staff have gone above and beyond to ease this difficult time with special types of entertainment (cart at door with themes and costumes) and good treats as well as well planned events such as 5 station St Patricks day event. Before pandemic it was a place with good entertainment and activities...more than I could take advantage of. Looking to that returning as the restrictions are eased from pandemic. Our chef returned and our food is wonderful. Being here eased my life this past year or two when my husband was very sick and went to heaven on Christmas Day. So glad we made this move 3.5 years ago.
We appreciate the availability and use of the shuttle bus for Dr. appointments. some of the residences need more intensive care. We need some replacements of the common area Furniture. sometimes we need a faster response to maintenance requests. The sidewalk and entrance need leveling and fill in cracks.
The Receptionists'do a very good job taking care of the resident's concerns. Some Maintenance problems are not taken care of in a timely manner. I wish the meals would come sooner since I am a Diabetic. Make sure to get a good replacement when [name removed] is off. She is very good and on weekends, sometimes there is no one that will show up. Start looking now!!
Has a good staff, good bunch of people work here. Everyone tries to be helpful. The food is also great, i like eating in the dinning room.

I entered the retirement community, Independence Village of Grand Ledge (IVGL), in January of 2019. I had investigated other places but felt IVGL best suited my needs. Unfortunately, shortly after my entry the pandemic hit us forcing many changes such as eating alone in our rooms, no visitors and many other restrictions. Therefore my evaluation will involve my experience in atypical times. I am in “enhanced living” which means I get three meals furnished as well as all personal laundry done. All of these services have been performed by the housekeeping staff in a very professional manner with few snafus. The food is nutritional, but of course sometimes it lacks something, usually due to my own dislikes. Considering cooking for large groups can be difficult I would say the food quality ranks about eight on a scale of one to ten. Recreation and entertainment is, of course, limited in these difficult times, but the staff has done a remarkable job in providing in house” recreation and entertainment. These activities include card games, bingo, crafts, movies, wii bowling, and other group activities, etc. Also a snack cart comes around several days per week which is appreciated by all. The entire staff is very friendly and strives to help us with issues that might arise in our stay here.
This is a large facility and has the ability to treat all stages of care. They are a big enough facility have space for indoor walking, and are pet friendly, they have a nice outside area for people to spend time outdoors. They also have shopping close by. I would recommend this facility to others.
The employees and head boss do not do anything, the residents do NOT get basic care, they do NOT get their hair brushed, teeth brushed, showers maybe once a week! Employees say they refused, so they don’t have to do the extra work. The head boss will walk into the building ([name removed]) and she will sit in her office while she watches employees sink. They are understaffed and this is why residents do not get basic care. Their restrooms NEVER get cleaned, toilets have BM Caked on them, Urine soaked into the carpet, ever sense Covid the families have not been inside, and the residents are being neglected. Meds do not get given, just dumped (they think it’s easier) and claim the resident refused. If you put your loved one here, know they willl NOTA RECEIVE any personal care, no activities, no good meals, they will have to sit in their own urine.. and they will be shut in their bedroom all day so they stay out of the way. Residents are always without any clean laundry because they do not have a regular housekeeper. Residents are given Ativan as soon as they “act up”. Watch out for story point in grand ledge! I would NEVER let my loved one step foot in here!

Hello Dillan, We did report this review to the SeniorAdvisor team because we believe this is a review made by a former employee, which is against the SeniorAdvisor guidelines. Still, they were unable to determine this for a fact. We recently had a very similar review with the same exact language used left on Google by a former employee and then removed a day later. Our care team works with resident families to determine each resident's unique care needs. Once those needs are determined, our care team supports those needs every day. Our housekeeping team works around the clock to ensure that our residents have a safe and comfortable home to enjoy during their retirement. If you would like to discuss your review further, please reach out to our HR team. Thank you!
I have worked in senior care for over 30 years and find Independence Village of Grand Lodge to be one of the nicest communities I have visited. They have the most caring and compassionate employees. It is a vibrant, active community that is very welcoming for residents and visitors.
