Review of Northridge Village

Northridge Village has light, cheerful apartments with a convenient kitchen. There is a "family feel" with residents sincerely interested in being helpful and caring. We appreciate people in the medical fields coming and sharing new information with residents during seminars and other learning sessions that are made available to tenants. The Executive Director ([name removed]) sets a very competent, reachable, warm and friendly tone. The shuttle service for medical appointments and group gatherings is great!

Look elsewhere

Looks good at first but goes downhill from there. Staff is very unfriendly! Environment is very cold and uninviting. Called multiple times to set up a tour of this facility and never got a return phone call, so I decided just to stop in. Not somewhere I will place a loved one. Very disappointed.

Review of Northridge Village

My wife and I have lived here nearly one year and are very comfortable in our apartment. We enjoy the sound proofing between apartments, the occupant controlled heating and cooling, the high ceilings, the bedroom ceiling fans, the provided housekeeping service, the many things for entertainment. Very convenient kitchen design and good laundry facility.

Review of Northridge Village

Having lived here for almost a year I am glad I sold my home of 57 years. Didn't realize how much I missed people. We are from all walks of life. It is a very friendly staff and residents. Plenty of activities and great meals. With my own furniture it feels like mine and help from the maintenance crew my worries are gone.

Review of Northridge Village Ames

After having lived here for almost three years, I would highly recommend this community for its overall friendliness of both residents and staff. The activity level is such that all who care to participate can do so if desired. The staff is usually very responsive to all our voiced needs and/or complaints which makes for a friendly environment. Because of the various levels of care, we can feel very confident of all our future needs right here within this little village.
