McDowell Village has met all of our expectations. There had been 24 hour nursing care that my loved one used and it was exceptional. The staff are great to work with if we have any questions or concerns. The food is great and everything my loved one would want. Wine tasting, live music entertainment and more are some of the activities available for the residents to choose from.
The communication could be improved with the residents, and visiting family and friends. The staff are responsive to friends and family's requests. They recently switched chefs. It would be nice to have the residents be more encouraged to join in on the activities by floor.
Our family had an in person tour and we thought it was an excellent place we were very impressed.
Our first impression right away was with the friendliness of the staff members and the residents, everyone just came up to speak with us on our tour which made us feel very welcoming. The meals are good and the residents are kept very busy with all the activities. The value for cost is great.
My friend enjoy that I am here and I am glad that I'm here.
I am very happy here! I have a lovely apartment, beautiful surroundings, a lot to do, staff is excellent, food delicious.
I couldn't go to another place after I visited McDowell Village. I knew after my tour that it was where I wanted to live. Each day I meet more and more wonderful people. Everyone that works here are very special people. They help each of us; understand when we have questions and need help. I am so happy to call this my home!!!
I have lived here for 2 months I can't visualize a better situation and everybody is very friendly. The employees at all levels are amazing to you and never resist to see to your needs. I see relatively yay (87) and look forward to many years here.
My husband and I have been living at McDowell Village for over 6 years. Before moving here, we visited 8 or 9 similar communities. We selected MDV and have been extremely pleased. The activity level, food service/dining services, and response from all staff is remarkably outstanding. We certainly made the right decision in coming to MDV. I do not hesitate to recommend living here to anyone. Our family members are also pleased we are here!
Best staff/activities. Great food.
McDowell Village is an exceptionally vibrant, friendly, and lively community. My apartment is quiet and comfortable. Food is delicious. Both staff and residents are outgoing and supportive. Rather than shuffling over to the side of the road, I am excited to find I only changed lanes.
I toured several communities before choosing McDowell Village. I had expectations of what I would experience while living here. I am happy to say that it has fare exceeded my expectations. A nice environment, lots of activities, entertainment and maintenance free life style is great. I'm happy to call this home and I think that you would too.
I have only lived here for 5 weeks, and really love my living quarters-the 1 bedroom apartment is just the right size, also love my balcony. The elevators, and trash rooms are so handy, and make it easy to travel to all other areas, in the facility. Dining room is a A-Plus, as well as the food lots of activities, to keep me busy.
It has a great exercise program. I play Bridge and there are lots of people to play with. The food is excellent! I enjoy the drama club! I enjoy Happy Hour! Bingo is great.
There is nothing I would change about McDowell Village, everything about this facility is fabulous. Administrative staff is amazing and all of the residents make you feel comfortable and welcome. The staff go above and beyond. The meals here are chef prepared and all of the activities provided are wonderful. My mom is thriving.
The community is respectful, very patient, and always available. The community is neat and clean, and the food is amazing. The chef takes pride in his dishes. I would recommend this community to others based on my experience.
From what we can see our loved ones room and the common areas are kept very clean, and our loved one does not have to many problems with the meals, but for the value and what they charge the meals could be a little bit better. We would recommend the community to others.
We toured this community and it was a very nice community. I have a pet and they did not have a patio area so the community did not fit our needs.
Thank you for the excellent care and service during these trying times. [name removed]is a true super star in your community, we value her opinion and hard work. She made all the difference when moving my mother into McDowell Village. We highly recommend this community, the employees are as beautiful as the environment and location!
