  • A caring community

    The staff at Kirkwood Orange is very friendly, however, the care can be a little lacking. With the exception of the director, the rest of the staff are wonderful to interact with. They seemed disorganized when my mother first moved into the community and we felt that whole process was a little messy. We were also told during the sales period that there would be a full time nurse and a 3:1 caregiver to resident ratio, however we do not feel this is true. With that said, most of the staff is very caring and when they are able, they make a clear attempt to cater to the needs of the individual residents. Our family feels that this community is a good value for the price. It does tend to be a little on the expensive side, however compared to other communities, we feel it is worth it. Kirkwood Orange puts on a lot of great activities for the residents. The community is also very clean and they do a good job of keeping everything very tidy. We don't feel the food is all that great, and it seems like there is a lot of room for improvement here. During the Covid-19 pandemic, they have done a good job with protecting the residents. The staff is very careful and haven't had any cases of the virus in the community.

  • This was originally our first choice until we toured Sunrise. Both were excellent communities and offered different things for active people. The layout of their shared room was not as private and again we were afraid he would disturb a roommate. The building and decor was very well planned and inviting. Cost in same range as Sunrise.
