Next Best Thing to Home

It's a very warm environment. The people are very polite and make you feel welcome when you come to visit your loved one, the same as they did on our tour. Mom quickly made friends. And the staff was really good to her. The food that I tried was good. The apartments are beautiful. She got the one that was really spacious, with two different areas - a kitchenette (with full sized fridge) and sitting area on one side, and a bedroom and bathroom on the other side. It's a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. It's very elegant, and that's exactly what Mom wanted.

Highly recommend

We chose Portside at Grande Dunes because it just felt the best and had the best vibe. The flow of the facility specifically for memory care is very well thought out and was not just added on later. They do offer both shared and private rooms. I would recommend them to others looking.

Tour of Portside

We toured Portside and it was a lovely facility. When we toured, it was just opening so we decided to go with a place that was more established with more residents. I was concerned with it being so new there would not be enough people to make the activities work. Some of the apartments here have balconies/patios and some do not.

Better care than home can give

Portside is a beautiful facility, our experience has been great so far. The community is very clean and the staff members are great. We have been so happy. The activities are still limited in some respect due to covid, and the activities are geared toward those in memory care. However they have done a great job keeping our loved one who is more of a recluse, active and involved. They really do motivated her to get involved. The meals are home cooked, for lunch they will get chicken, vegetables, potatoes and dessert. For dinner they will do something around the same so she complains, but when my wife and I go visit we see the food and it looks absolutely delicious.

I would recommend

We chose Portside at Grande Dunes because my brother lives in the area and he was very impressed with the facility and once I saw it I could understand why. Everybody was very friendly, accommodating, and caring. The apartment sizes here are excellent. We ate here a couple of times and the food is very good. We did have a couple of hiccups with the phone in the beginning, sometimes communication gets lost of forgotten so they could improve on that. I would recommend them.

The Perfect Place for Mom

I would highly recommend the community to others. The people that work there are a stand out to me. This is one of the affordable places, even being on Grand Dunes. They currently have rooms available for additional residents.

I love it here and would highly recommend it

I chose Portside at Grande Dunes because of the location and my family researched it and liked the reviews the facility got. It is a beautiful place, they just opened a new division of independent living which is very nice and we get new people all the time. We have 4 new chefs so the food is improving from what it was. Overall, I love it here, it is a very warm and loving community.

Terrible Facility for memory care.

I would NOT recommend putting your loved in Portside facility in their Memory Care unit. The staff is awful and wont do anything unless asked. The staff is nothing more than not very good housekeepers at best. They are also they are woefully understaffed. The facility is new and nice and not run well. Anywhere is better than this based on the care provided.

Attentive staff

We chose Portside at Grande Dunes because of the quality of the facility. It was brand new, it had a very bright feeling, it almost felt like you were on a cruise ship. The room sizes were very generous, my father in law had a one bedroom apartment that was very nice. It would be a spectacular apartment for anybody, let alone assisted living residents. I ate here many times and the food was amazing, they serve is restaurant style. The entire staff is so loving and kind and they were so wonderful to him. So attentive and caring from the house keepers on up. I would and have recommended this facility.

Offers a lot of amenties

This is a very lovely community, the building is gorgeous. When you walk in the entrance it has great big ceilings, three stories tall. You can sit outside the entry way on comfy seats and outdoor furniture. It is covered so you can sit outside even when it rains. The house keeping is good, they keep everything very clean. The care services are excellent ad the food they service is good. We have a good chef he makes the food look very attractive and appetizing. Because of COVID they are now allowing the residents to eat in the dining room, however its for only one meal a day and one resident per table. Portside community has monthly calendars listing the activties they are offering. There is bingo, and fitness classes you can take twice a day. There is a pool, and a movie theater. We can even tie-dye different items of clothing! This is a very lovely place.

Portside At Grande Dunes

My husband is very happy here. I don't think they pay quite enough attention to the residents to brush their teeth. The staff is very friendly. I think they do care for the residents, which is a plus, and the care givers are very kind. I wouldn't want to take my husband out of here. From what I know, I think they are providing adequate activities. I think it is a little expensive, but the level of care is very good. The transportation accommodations could be slightly better. Overall we are very satisfied.
