Value for cost
It's a secure community where you sign in and out. They really put a good effort in with activities, even considering Covid. They still do exercises, bingo, a community walk, anything they can do with social distancing. When my loved one had an injury and couldn't participate in activities, the director spent several half hour sessions with her visiting and talking with her. I know she must be very busy, so I really appreciated her taking the time out of her day for my loved one. The rest of the staff pop in early to say hi to her. I just want to hug them. The staff is great. I think it's a great value here. The residents get three meals a day, and there's a snack/beverage station available. All utilities are paid except for phone service. They clean once a week and then deep clean once or twice a year. They offer activities, as well as some other services you can pay for so you don't have to go out. There's no yard upkeep. I would say that's a pretty good deal. It's not as expensive as some people may think. It can be affordable, and I would recommend that people get long term care insurance if they can. That's helped us a lot.
During the time our loved one was there the activities were pretty much shut down due to the restrictions. We did think the value for cost was really good and the administrative staff was very helpful and did a great job navigating through the covid pandemic.
The staff members have been great, and for the most part our loved one is very happy there. Everything so far has been good, and we are having a good experience with the nursing staff especially during the pandemic. The food could use some improvement, but the value for cost is manageable.
Recently, the director has given her resignation. She hasn't said why, but I suspect it's because of management of the facility, because there's been a shortage of staff. Staff have actually mentioned that they're working overtime several days a week because there isn't enough help. Some meals that are delivered to the rooms are being missed. The response time to the pull cord calls after about 5:30 in the evening throughout the night is a horrible turn-around time. In my opinion, that should be the prime time for response, because a call during that time means something is wrong. But 45 minutes to an hour is not uncommon. On the good side, things are opening up a little. The lady who runs the hair shop opened her shop up again last week, so all the women are happy they can get their hair done again. Cleanliness is good - I've not noticed anything I would not want to see when I go in. They come around once a week to clean the apartments, and they come around once a day to empty the garbage. They could be a little better about window tracks and stuff like that - they tend to stick and are hard to open. But in general it's pretty good.
We chose Normandy Park Senior Living because of recommendations, the location, and it just felt clean and pleasant when you walk in. The room sizes here are adequate, plenty for his needs. I have eaten here and the food was fine, they do have a menu with variety. I would recommend and we have been very grateful to have my dad here during the pandemic.
It is a very nice place to live. It is a great location, it is close, within walking distance, to restaurants, shopping and other amenities. They also have a bus to take you places. The food is fine, not wonderful but it is okay. They have a nice area out back with a fountain for residents to use. They keep the outside well manicured, plenty of places to walk a pet. They do try to accommodate resident requests.
beautiful location and facility. Very open, airy and cheerful.
Looks like a nice place to live. I would like to see more excercise equipment in more of a gym environment. [Name removed] is very engaged and caring. We will definitely consider Solstice for our mother.
Very nice and clean. Friendly staff.
There didn’t seem to be many people around when we took our tour. The residents that we did see were in the lobby, not talking, and it seemed like they were just parked there. However, we found out it was so empty because they had taken most of the residents to a Mariners game. The staff was very, very nice and the landscaping outside was wonderful. The inside was clean and the rooms they showed us were actually really nice too. They were studios but they were really big and bright. It was definitely a place that we could see Mom living in but the location itself just wasn’t ideal.
When I needed options for my dad we had looked at this community and really liked it but based on his care level needs at the time I didn't think this would be a good fit. But now this is the perfect place for my mom and her care level needs. She enjoys being here. The staff is very helpful and patient.They encourage the residents to attend different things that may be going on but they don't pressure the residents. They have medical staff on site. The food seems to be to my moms liking no complaints.
When you enter the staff welcomes you in a pleasant and friendly manner. The community appeared to be clean and well maintained. We didn't have a meal here but I did look at a menu and it seemed to offer a variety of foods most of it appeared to be on the softer side. The staff seemed friendly and looked well groomed and professional. The location was good only a short drive from my home.
This is wonderful for care. The staff was outstanding and friendly. They offered me a beverage. The cleanliness is outstanding. We liked the environment. Families would like the menu of the meals and the activities that are offered to the residents. We would recommend the care and the value for a loved one.
My mother moved here and things are going well. They meet her care needs and we are happy with this choice.
just okay. didn't seem compassionate. Seemed more about the business than the person.
Everything is going very well for my grandmother. She has adjusted very well to the community. They are caring for her very well. I am pleased with everything they have done for us. They offer nice activities and good food. Overall I would recommend it.
Smaller facility which I liked, very convenient location. Newer building but there were cooking odors. Staff seemed friendly, couldn't tell about the residents. Did not appear to be very diverse.
Our experience with Normany Park assisted living has been a good one so far. I don't get the chance to visit often as I live out of state, but I have heard good things from my family members. I do really appreciate that they communicate openly and frequently about the status of your loved one.
My father passed away recently and we were looking for a good assisted living community for our mother. We contacted "A Place for Mom" and instantly we received a phone call from an advisor. She was very helpful and gave us 3 places to start with and recommended we look at Normandy Park Senior Living on 1st Avenue. She has heard very good things about it. We took mom there for a tour and she loved it. Everyone was so friendly. It was really clean and the halls were really wide. The Director at Normandy Park (Jill) was very nice and mom asked questions and she explained everything so mom could understand the benefits of living there. We had lunch in their dinning room while we were there. The food was wonderful. We still had to look at the other 2 communities but mom decided she didn't want to look at the other 2. She was really impressed with Normandy Park Senior Living. Mom has been there for 6 weeks now and she is very happy with the decision she made. We really didn't expect to get everything done so fast but everyone was so compassionate about our mom's situation and walked us through the whole process. We don't have to worry as much about our mom. We know she is in a safe environment and she loves it. We want to send them a Thank you so much for everything they did for us. Cheri Duffey Marcella Wilson (Mom)
Very light and bright. Safety rails line both sides of the halls but look like decorative molding. All the bars in the bathrooms are also grab bars. There were no noticeable odors. Memory care is available if the need should arise. Friendly staff and residents. Jill is very knowledgeable about the facility and senior housing. She answered all of our questions and invited us to call anytime if we have more. Plenty of activity for participation. The facility itself is a nice manageable size. Not overwhelming as some we have visited. Overall impression was that this facility is on the list to be of serious consideration. I'd like to give it 4.75 stars, but was not able to do so.
