Tour of Knollwood Pointe

We toured Knollwood Pointe and really liked the facility, but the price would have increased and it would have been too expensive.

Pleased with our experience

We have been very happy with our experience at Knollwood Pointe. We chose this facility because of the staff members and the director was very nice and knowledgeable of what was going on. The room sizes here are pretty large, the one she has is good size for her and fits all her needs. I would recommend them to others looking.

Would recommend this community

Knollwood Pointe offered a wide range of activities, they would take the residents on small trips. They would play games and all sing together. It is a place where you would want your loved one to be, it is very inviting.

Pros and cons

Pros: Great fit for our Mom. Attentive and professional staff. Good meals. Con: Questionable business practices by ownership. Monthly fee was increased by nearly 20% less than 6 months after we signed up and Mom moved in. We should have been informed about planned rate increases during our sign in process. The increase was legal and allowed under our agreement. But as a matter of transparent and above-board business practice, the increase should have bee n communicated to prospects. I am certain that ownership had plans for the increase at the time we were searching for a place for Mom.

The residents and staff here have become like family where we each care for the other. Many of the staff here do things for the residents that they do not have to do but because they care to do so.

How Knollwood has become part of our family.

My mother came to Knollwood Pointe over a year ago and we are very pleased with her new "home" where it's about the people and really caring for one another. The facility is the right size for residents to each feel they get individual care and attention and the residents and staff have become more like a family to one another. My mother has special diet needs and they have been super to accommodate those needs. The dietitian has become one of mom's angels there who goes over and above to make my mom feel loved and special. When mom recently had some irritation to her gums and difficulty chewing, she immediately made sure her food was cut up or soft. And the dietitian cares for everyone with that degree of care. My mother is a great example of what they have done to accommodate not just her physical needs but her emotional and social ones as well. Sometimes those are the most important! And so many of the staff there do so much more than their job description; my mom genuinely feels loved there! My 93 year old mother is stronger, happier, more socially involved, and mentally stimulated than when she first came here a year ago. And my extended family all love and use the new GrandGrams to send my mother messages and pictures. My mother doesn't use a computer or smart phone and otherwise would miss those connections with her family. She loves getting her Grams delivered to her door and shows them to everybody! And I love that I can send my mother pictures and share what's going on when we travel. And I'm so thankful to be able to travel and have peace of mind that my mom is being loved, is active, and cared for while I'm gone. There is no other place in Mobile where I would want my mom!

Allen B. - Thank you for the very kind words about our community, its staff, residents and visitors. Your mother (and you and Mrs. B) are a blessing and encouragement to all of us. Your mom is a great testimony to the difference that great care, med management, socialization and consistent nutrition and exercise can provide for a senior. Thank you for allowing us to be an extension of your family. We are thankful for you all!

While searching for an assisted living facility I visited Knollwood Pointe, and after a thorough tour, I felt as if I has found my home! It is exceptionally clean, new friendly. My apartment is cleaned, my laundry done, nurses on duty 24 hours, my meals prepared, activities to participate in, beauty salon on the premise, lovely courtyard and patio, porch with rolling chair. This is why I am happy to call Knollwood Pointe home!
