I chose Inspired Living at Sarasota for my loved one because of their lovely outdoors. the individual rooms were big and the community seemed to be well run. unfortunately, my loved one was only able to stay for a very short time. a situation arose in which we would need to hire an aide for 24hr assistance if we wanted to continue care at Inspired Living. I truly believe that the community handled the situation appropriately, they contacted me immediately and explained what happened and what would need to happen moving forward. we were unable to hire the aide, so we were unable to continue care services there. although my loved one was unable to stay due to safety risks, there were no hard no feelings whatsoever. I am completely understanding of the mutual decision we agreed on. both the moving in and parting experience were great. it's also important to note that they refunded our money with no issue....

It is a great place, you can feel confident having your mother and father at a wonderful facility

Inspired living is a very clean community, the staff members get 10 stars and the activities get 10 stars. The care services that are provided are great but the biggest challenge that everyone is facing is staffing. However anytime we have questions or concerns with our loved one we can call management and the address whatever it is promptly.

Review of Inspired Living at Sarasota

January 2020 My mother recently past after being a resident at Inspired Living for 20 months. Our family believes that the level of care and compassion they provided for her truly extended and increased her quality of life. The care also extended to us as family members. I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the front desk staff of [names removed] for always being a bright spot when you first come in. A very special thank to [names removed] who through the 20 months went above and beyond to take care of my mother and the family. Thank you for the attention, kindness and tenderness that you treated her with and the constant communication that you provided to us.

Review of Inspired Living at Sarasota

February 2019 Inspired Living has demonstrated that what they say, and who they say they are is very true. They have returned respect and dignity to my father who has lived a long life, and now faces challenges that no one every plans for when they dream of retirement. This past year, two different facilities over medicated my father to make him fit in their world. Then we discovered Inspired Living on Kelly Road, a place that lets my dad create his own world. Beautiful large outdoor space, highly trained and focused staff that show compassion and caring. They watch out for my dad in so many ways, It has returned my peace of mind. If you have a loved one that has Alzheimer or other memory issues I highly encourage you to tour this home away from home. The cost is market competitive, and offers so much more.

Review of Inspired Living at Sarasota

I visited 6 memory care facilities in April and Inspired Living topped the list to meet the needs of my ailing wife. It's a beautiful, well maintained facility. I especially liked the walking park in the back, complete with a large gazebo where we take our visitors and loved ones for a pleasant evening chat. What's most interesting is the Executive Director's leadership approach to running this facility. [Name removed] makes everyone feel welcome and treats her residents as if they were family. She has been special to my wife, eaten breakfast with her, and prayed with her multiple times. How special is that?Her staff is equally attentive. It's a total team effort. They have a tough job to do and they give of themselves to insure your loved one is properly cared for. If you have an issue, voice it, and it will be solved.You won't find [name removed] hiding behind a desk. She will be out on the floor, assisting her staff where needed and providing guidance when the going gets tough. And believe me, some days are very challenging. I've seen her put in 14 hour days and she's still smiling at the end. The Activity director is young, vibrant, caring, and creative. There are plenty of fun activities, celebrations, and trips each week. She just got through hosting a 50th Wedding Anniversary party for one couple. It was simply first class. It's wonderful to see her and her entire staff in action. Her uncommon talent is a rarity in today's society. The food is great. The menus offer variety and fill the nutritional needs of your loved one. I would give it an “A”. It's worth your while to visit this memory care facility. I highly recommend

Truly loved this facility during the tour. Personnel I met were accommodating and knowledgeable. Rooms were small, but larger than I imagined looking on line. (Going from a house to any "room" will be a shock.) Open courtyard is stunning. Didn't love that no refrigerator would be allowed in her room. Mixed feelings on having ankle bracelets, liked that it unlocked resident's door, so only resident could enter private room. Slightly out of our price range. Not saying it wasn't potentially worth every cent.

Don't do it.

I ended up moving my loved one out of Inspried Living at Sarasota due to constant staff turnover, terrible activities and facility set-up, and lack of protocols and procedures. For example, during the 2017 hurricane that was due to hit Sarasota, Inspried Living chose to not evacuate their residents even though they are right off the water. I witnessed staff screaming at residents. I saw residents sreaming at residents with no staff intercession. They spend all their time in one echoy room with no good way to 'get away.' During our time there there was 200% staff turn over in every position, excpet for the maintenance guy. He's nice. My loved one was very happy to be moved.

I had a parent in the facility for 2 years. The inconsistent staffing was a real problem. Staff does not stay very long. Management on property is less than adequate. Activities director and kitchen seem to be the only saving grace about this place. Don't be fooled by the new building and pretty grounds. There are much better facilities close by.

I do feel this is the best community for my husband, and his needs. It has really been a positive experience for us in this community. My husband is doing well, and I'am pleased with all they have done for us. The nurses at this facility are fantastic. They are very kind, and attentive towards my husband, and his needs. The community is nice, and clean when I come to visit. I've tasted some of the food, and the meals are good. They offer plenty of activities for the residents. He is safe, and in good hands in this community, and I would highly recommend it.

EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED

Worst experience of our lives. My mom was there for one night and to date they are keeping $6,000 of her money. Even though the contract clearly states you have 15 days to CHANGE YOUR MIND as it is titled. I have made several calls to regional director who has not returned my calls about the money they are keeping. My mother worked hard her whole life for her money so to see them keep a 90 year old woman's money is beyond my capacity to understand since they are supposed to be helpful to seniors not make life harder then it already is for them. I explained to them my mother has a great memory, even said, her memory is better then mine and I was told my mother still fit the facility because they have high functioning residents too. I am a social worker so I know about 17 of the assisted living centers here as well as many of the geriatric doctors and nurses in Sarasota. I feel obligated to explain to them why they should never refer anyone here. And now because they will not fulfill the contract they are placing me in a position to use an attorney. 1.So I was defrauded about the place being a fit for my mother who did awesome in assisted living in Calif. and is doing amazing at the assisted living place she went to after Inspire. 2. Defrauded about 15 day to change mind in contract. 3. The one day my mother was there she called 911 for help in the middle of the night. The hours I was there I was [Removed] hard by a man I walked by who is a resident. There were several loud arguments in the dining room where a staff member had to break up. When in the lobby and behind closed doors I would hear the screaming of residents. 4. The nurse lied about my mom "forgetting" something in an attempt to show my mom had memory issues. The problem was she "forgot" I was present at the incident the nurse was telling me about so I know the nurse was lying. 5.My mom was traumatized for several days after being there for one day. Please call me if you have any further questions. [removed] ([Removed])
