Lovely new apartments and definitely has the beat of the local Rockridge neighborhood. Also the community members appear to be varied and engaged. Definitely not the typical suburban, cookie-cutter senior facility. Was quite refreshing compared with so many of the other places we have seen. Also like the idea that all the units are independent living and the assisted care is added in, so assisted living residents are not separated from everyone else.

The meals are great and the activities are fun

My husband and I are doing very fine here. A lot of what we’ve liked has been location and we’re closer to family here, which means we get to see them a lot. We’ve been very pleased with the meals because of their variety and it’s been served well. There are a core group of foods that are available and they have 3 new entrees, a new soup, and a different dessert every day. They aren’t mammoth portions but we don’t really need that anyway. We have 2 rooms with a full sized kitchen, a washer and dryer, and we’re quite comfortable with the space. We’re quite pleased with the whole arrangement. The staff is easy to communicate with and seem knowledgeable and we actually had a “town meeting” to go over fire drills and other information. The staff was very cooperative with showing us what we needed to do and they’ll take complaints to make sure everything is going okay. They have exercise every morning at 10 and another one usually in the afternoon that you can go to that has music. There’s a happy hour every Friday where they serve wine and there’s someone that comes in that will play the piano and have a sing-a-long with music that we all know. We have no complaints concerning the cleanliness and the housekeeper that was assigned to our floor has been very awesome. The thing I like the most is that she even changes the bed for me because I have trouble doing it myself. There are things they’re still working on but they’re still very new and they’re doing a good job. I would recommend them and even our kids talk about moving in.
