The Staff and Other Residents are Welcoming

The staff is friendly. There are lots of activities for the residents. Some of the activities are exercise classes, outings, and more for the residents to choose from. Currently the community is short staffed. The activities director is flexible and will come up with something else to engage the residents when necessary.

I was late to the appointment and they were able to get me in anyway. The sales representative answered all my questions and we were able to tour the independent facility and 2 apartments. The facility was clean and staff was very friendly.

5 star review

We chose Independence Village because we liked the atmosphere, the nurse that was helping with everything, and it just seemed like it wasn't too big or too small and everyone was friendly. The apartment is big enough to put most all of her things in. The meals are chef prepared and she enjoys them. I think the head nurse goes above and beyond to try and help us with everything and the marketing person was really really good as well. We had to do this on the weekend as an emergency and she came in hours she wasn't supposed to be working and helped us a lot. The maintenance director was exceptional with trying to help us with everything we needed to move and set up. I would recommend them to others looking.

I wouldn't discourage you from checking out this community. It was easy to see my loved one. The staff seemed friendly and caring. They allowed me to see my loved one. It would be nice to have answers to our questions, that the staff couldn't answer initially. This took time for us to make sure all the information we needed was covered.
