Elegance

I am an entertainer that does presentations at Novel Place in Overland Park. I have been to many retirement communities over the past fifteen years. The impression I got when entering the front door was the elegance and beauty of the interior architecture, which continues throughout the building. A very friendly atmosphere. I have talked to residents, and they raved about how they like living there. It is also an ideal location, close to shopping and other amenities.

A Great Place for my Mom

My mom moved to Novel Place a few months ago and we both feel blessed to have found this wonderful community. The staff at Novel Place are kind, supportive and understanding. Their warm and sincere interactions are what convinced my mom to make this milestone move. My mom lived alone for twenty plus years, so she was a bit anxious to move to this type of living situation. The staff did a fantastic job making sure she was getting connected to the other residents and learning her new environment without overwhelming her. The food, activities, and cheerful environment have been great for my mom. I can’t recommend Novel Place Senior Living enough. If you are searching for a place for yourself or a loved one I would add this place to your list.

My experience at Novel Place

It was so difficult to sell our home and downsize to a small apartment. However, we have not missed owning our own home once in the year we have been here. The management team is incredible and try their best to meet our needs. Everyone is friendly and support one another. I highly recommend Novel Place as a wonderful answer to the loneliness of living in your own home. Everyone here provides friendship and support for one another.

A Great Place For Mom

There are many considerations when finding a new home for a parent. Our search was complete after locating Novel Place in Overland Park. Our mother was reluctantly moving from her home of 55 years. So her check-off list was long. She loves the warm community of residents and staff in a gorgeous independent living facility. She chose a lovely 2-bedroom apartment with brand new decor, with a fenced patio overlooking a courtyard. After a year and a half, she has experienced a very responsive staff, with a very active social calendar of activities. Conveniently she has seen a visiting eye-doctor, a podiatrist, and is able to get flu shots and vaccines on site. Novel Place has been a warm and welcoming place that she now calls home. We can rest easy knowing that her safety and security are provided at Novel Place.

Lifestyle at Novel Place Overland Park

As one of the first residents of Novel Place, [date removed], I have enjoyed an Independent Lifestyle that can't be beat in the area. Novel Place is a resident friendly community where we check on each other almost daily. The facility is well built and provides a top notch management staff, daily activities, excellent culinary, light housekeeping, transportation for those that no longer drive, outings to restaurant's museums, cultural events and more. Monthly rates are reasonable on month to month with no contracts. There are studio, one bedroom, one bedroom with a den, and two bedroom units, all have full kitchen and washer and drier included. Come take a tour to see the greatness of Novel Place.

Welcoming Community

Novel Place was so welcoming and felt like “home” on our first visit. Caring and professional administrators helped navigate the living choices and find the perfect place. Giving up your home and moving can be an unsettling experience and the right fit makes the transition easier. All the amenities of home and wonderful dining experiences, plus a menu of activities is such a plus! We are so pleased a year into the selection of Novel Place and highly recommend it for any parent or loved one looking for the right community and beautiful apartment.

It is a great new concept of aging in place

This is a newer community which we love and the value for the money gets 10 stars, it is excellent. Even though it is independent living only they do have health care professionals that live on sight. Our loved one absolutely loves the dinners - Monday through Friday the prepare breakfast and dinner, Saturday is lunch only and Sunday is brunch. They have great activities. The rooms have full kitchens in them. Based on our experience we would 100% recommend Novel Place community to other families.

My review of Novel Place

We moved to Novel Place Senior Living in [date removed]. We like it so very much. Our first clue that NP was our place was our initial meetings with their management team, [name removed] and [name removed]. These ladies took us on a couple of tours and explained how things work in this Senior Living Space. We knew right away, this was our next home. We called our two children who live in the area and [name removed] took them on a tour as well. it was a unanimous decision and we have enjoyed our time here very much. The people are friendly and very open to including everyone. the activities are fun and the food is good. Everyone is helpful and kind and we highly recommend Novel Place Senior Living.

Newly constructed, well appointed facility, and friendly staff.

The staff has been incredibly helpful, friendly, and willing to work with us. We had to pay for some of my loved one's expenses because her Social Security wasn't available until the middle of the month, so they've worked with us getting that taken care of with our credit card instead of hers. Anytime we've reached out to them or asked for clarification, they've been quick to respond. Everyone is just so friendly. My loved one is very happy with the quality of the food. It's fresh and tastes like restaurant quality. We just wish they offered three meals a day instead of two - a continental breakfast and dinner. The units themselves are very nice and essentially brand new. Hers has a very nice full kitchen, which is great for people who are self sufficient. And in her case, it has given her more drive to be a little more active and go outside of her comfort zone because she's cooking her lunches for herself and therefore standing and walking around more than she would otherwise. She's so happy there, and the cost with the promotion they were running was an incredible deal.

They have activities like card games, movie nights, live concerts where musicians come in and more for the residents to keep them busy and active in the community.
