A comfortable place to live, but the food could be better.

The main issue is the food. My loved ones don't care for the things they serve. But it's a good place. The staff are friendly. The apartments are cleaned on a set schedule, and the housekeepers are friendly as well. Overall my loved ones like their apartment. It's a little bit dated, but they love the sliding glass door that walks out onto a back patio.

Mom is happy here

We chose Kamlu Retirement because it is a very homey, smaller facility. The people are so friendly and everybody is really nice. It is very centrally located, not far from the hospital and it just close to everything you need. They have a bus that you can sign up for rides to stores or doctors appointments. The apartment sizes are reasonable for a studio, they do have other options as well on sizes. It is a lovely place and my mom is very happy here. I would recommend to others.

My review of Kamlu Retirement

Our family had an in person tour and we have a great experience. We loved the community but unfortunately it was just not what our grandmother was looking for. It did not have the full kitchen in the apartment to where she could cook for herself. We would consider Kamlu later down the road when our loved one needs more assistance and not independence.

I would recommend

I chose Kamlu Retirement because of the affordability. The apartment sizes here depend what side of the building you are on, on the older side the apartments are smaller, but on the newer side the studios are quite large and nice. The best part about the community so far has been the staff members and residents, they are very friendly. I would recommend.

My happy dance!

I love this community,Sweet it is.Management is very caring and helpful, at all times.The food is great, as we have 3 meals, actual full on meals, with 3 choices at lunch and dinner with a heart healthy choice at each. This is a smaller, bright and open community.I am blessed to live here. It is a little pricey for my budget, AND....it is truly worth it!

Compliments from a Kamlu resident

I have been a resident of Kamlu for 5 years. Some advice for a prospective resident. Ask how they deal with disruptive residents. Example, a nieghbor that is loud, theTV,Music,Talking to yourself loudly. An unsanitary resident. Sneezing,coughing without covering mouth and nose. Unwilling to change adult diapers when soiled. Compromise security by blocking the locked doors open. Management that suggest a resident move out because the resident complained to Corporate,Holiday Retirement. The noisy nieghbor is [name removed]. The unsanitary resident was [name removed]. He also would block open doors instead of remember his keys. Earlier this year we had a Noro Virus out break. We were confined to our rooms for almost a week. I had to use a laundromat at my own expense all because we have residents that are unconcerned with the well being of others. Also dog owners that make noise with barking in a confined area it is excruciating and unacceptable.

Exceeds Expectations

Our first impression and continued impression is of a community that indeed cares for its residents and has their needs first and foremost. When we first visited Kamlu we were impressed with the facility itself, but even more so with the smiles on the faces of residents and their friendliness. [Removed] was wonderful to work with. Congratulations to you all for a job well done.

We like it here

The staff have been helpful and the entire staff knew our names before we moved in. They are concerned about the residents. The servers are friendly. The food is too good and they bake the bread and dessert on site. They offer transportation and other nice amenities. We are impressed with the way the community is run. I would recommend this community.

Everything went fine!!

I had taken a tour of this community and had really liked everything I had seen. The staff where very friendly and had a lot of great information to offer me as well as answer any questions I had for them. It was just not the price for my budget but I would recommend it to anyone.

Just moved in.

We just moved in, and are quite pleased so far. The place is clean the staff friendly and the residence are friendly too. Once I finish clearing out the old place I hope to be able to participate in some of the activities.

Not the right fit.

I liked the amenities they offered and it was like being at a resort. We did not choose this community because we felt it was too large and overwhelming.

Such A Wonderful Atmosphere

The feeling is great for my mom since moving in. She is enjoying the activities and meeting new people in the community. The meals are enjoyable and her apartment is cozy and comfy. It is wonderful and I would recommend them.

We were only able to view a studio. It was tiny and not well maintained. Facility did not feel as warm and welcoming as others we visited, though the residents appeared happy.

Mom is very pleased

The grounds are really pretty at Kamlu Retirement. It is very clean and always smells good there. Mom is very pleased. She always says that the staff wants you to be happy here. They have a lot of games there and she isn't much of a game person. They definitely keep residents busy. The staff do a nice job of making mom feel welcome. The only thing I would mention that was a little off putting is that when we went to a new resident orientation, they told us to let them know if they aren't going to be coming down to eat. That way they aren't wondering where you are. She didn't like the fact that they want to keep tabs on you. That is really the only thing that was off putting. Other than that everything has been really good here.

Upon arriving we we're warmly greeted. There were no odors only the smell of lunch cooking. My uncle and I had looked at many other facilities but Kamlu stood out to my uncle as the best fit because it wasn't too big, it is affordable, and the food was great. He is very happy at Kamlu. He. Loves the sense of family at Kamlu, all the activities, and the staff is great.
