Initially, it was very friendly and hospitable. after we moved in its not so friendly or hospitable. Communication is not good and I have to initiate any communication. I would recommend if the attitude and friendliness of the caregivers improved.
This has been a really good place for my loved one. I feel comfortable with her here. She's safe and seems to really enjoy it. She likes that she feels safe here also, and they're able to help with her medication. She says the food is outstanding. She doesn't' participate in a lot of the activities, but is happy to hang out with her group of friends.
My mom stayed at the Marigold of Alexandria from the spring of 2015 until she passed away on [date removed]. She didn't want to be anywhere except her own house until her death, so it took a span of about 2 yrs. to convince/"drag" her to an assisted living place. We interviewed a couple of other places and found the Marigold affordable and offering the amenities we needed. She absolutely got the best care from the very start until she passed away. I went overseas with my husband who served in the military and my mind was at ease knowing she was in good hands. The staff and director showed through their kindness and compassion that they could be trusted and relied upon. I'm so glad we had my mom there!!
The community called and let me know that they made a doctor's appointment for my loved one, and they wanted for a family member to go sit with my loved one. The problem was I thought the community was going to be taking care of this for my loved one and the family and it was a last minute ordeal.
I have been very happy with Marigold Place. The personnel has worked hard to make my mother feel wanted and included in the daily happenings. I appreciate all the effort that they have put forth!
My mother left the home that she had lived in for 60 years and moved into Marigold Place in Alexandria, LA. She was there for 8 months. She was happy, loved, well-cared for and it truly became her home. Her only negative comment was that she should have moved there sooner. The staff was amazing. They went so far beyond what was required in every area of her care. The staff of housekeeping, food service, activities, reception, social worker, administrator must have been selected with caring and concern being a top priority. I would recommend, with no reservations, Marigold Place as an excellent move for anyone looking for assisted living. I cannot thank the staff enough for the loving care they gave my mother.
Marigold Place is off the chart. Our family is very pleased with A Place For Mom's referral for my dad. The community is warm and caring. He is enjoying their meals and if he can't make it to the dining room they will bring him what he needs. They are on top of the care and check on him often. He likes to keep his door cracked open to wave hi to those passing by. Nothing has changed and that is how the routine goes daily. They are a wonderful group of people. From what I have seen, everybody gets the same treatment and care.
Our experience did not go well. My dad did not like it here and did not want to return. My mom was not bathed, hair not washed, and had unchanged linens. I was told they would be able to provide the care but days later they told me she had to leave because they could not deliver. I felt like they were dishonest. The facility was nice and the staff, nurse, and caseworker are hard workers. The director should be more honest and upfront about what they can provide. The initial beginning was good but the follow through was not good.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We’re sorry to hear about your poor experience. Will you please call our Regional Director of Operations at [removed] to discuss your concerns further?
A month ago my brother moved into Marigold Place(he had several to choose from) .The staff at Marigold are very friendly,very helpful and take that extra step to see to your needs. The staff & residents make you feel like family & keep you abreast of what is happening to your love ones. I have seen a positive change in my brother since he has been at Marigold. He likes the place, the people & the food. Marigold is a place I would consider if I ever need to go to an Assisted Living Place.
My mother loved her week stay & we have scheduled another week for her! We will work on long stay this summer?? She had such a good time and felt so secure she did not want to leave. Thank you all so very much!
