Gracious, Retirement Living

I would encourage others to come live here. I enjoy the meals, light housekeeping, the location, and the staff all are wonderful. The shuttle bus is for shopping on Mondays and Fridays, and Tuesday and Thursday for doctor appointments, and Wednesday is for community outings. The staff communication for requests can be a little more time as the staffing numbers are low. There are communal washer and dryers on each floors for the residents to use. There are kitchenettes in the apartments. There are three meals a day served for the residents.... Read more

tour review

Our family had an in person tour and the individual giving the tour was just not very energetic and not very inviting, but we were able to eat a meal there and wow the food was very good.

Highly recommend

While our loved one was there, the Sanford Estates community was great and the staff members were wonderful. The activities were very good and she really enjoyed the meals. It was an absolute god send, and being a nurse and knowing what is out there we were just blown away. We are so glad our loved one had an opportunity to live here.

We would highly recommend it

It has some good quality quality and some small issues. It is in a good location, it is very up to date with comfortable accommodations. Our loved one has met some friends there which is great, they have good activities we do think they are top notch. They have a transportation service that takes the residents to and from places if they can't or don't drive. The staff are very friendly, no one at the community has tested positive for the virus, they are very cautious and on top of it. The only small issue there is, is with the meals and dining service, that could be improved a little bit. They have gone though a couple chefs so far and we are not exactly sure what the problem is.

Overall would recommend this community

This community looks to be kept very clean, but the food at Sanford Estates is very heavy on carbs, they had ice cream all the time for the residents but since COVID they don't have it at the moment. We wish there was more sugar free options since a lot of the residents are diabetics. For the most part the staff is pretty friendly, however was especially liked the person who gave us our tour. He was great, he really tried to make things happen quickly. The rooms at this community are nice as well.

Our parents are at Sanford Estates and everyone there has been wonderful to them. [names removed] are excellent managers and have always taken very good care of our parents. I can call them for any reason whatsoever and they will take care of it. The accommodations are very nice, clean and kept up very well. The grounds are also very well taken care of. They even have a garden for my mother-in-law! There are fun activities provided by [name removed]who is very sweet to the guests. We are thankful for Sanford Estates and all that they have provided for our family. We would highly recommend them to you.

$2300; 30 mins. Nice staff. Clean facility. Great programs. Travel program and ability to try it out. A little beyond our price range

Not a good choice

Residents constantly complain about how much they dislike this place. Laundry rooms are filled with trash for days. We did a walk through and things were out of shape and seemed a little standoffish.Price wise its expensive for the little space. One resident told us theres no steady management system and recently 2 sets of live in managers quit at the same time and Unprofessional environment with horrible food If you love your family memeber or friend dont place them here.

Nothing wrong with this one except the price.

This is the ideal place but the most expensive for my Mom. Wish I could place her here but too costly. Wonderful staff and amenities that she would love. Only issue is the apartments do not come with a full kitchen, however there is a kitchen for everyone to use in the common area which makes for a great gathering place when you want to cook.

This is a lovely location, nearest to [name removed] in Norcross on the north end. They have live-in managers and a really nice dining room area. Like the atrium layout and only 3 floors. Nice wooded area. CONS - Price is a big one. This place is about $800 over our $2,500 per month budget. No concessions. And the 1 BR apartment at that price was just OK. Only had a partial kitchen with no stove or oven. Not even a microwave. Just a frig.

Low end experience

I visited this community with my mother recently and if you are on a budget they have figured a way out to deliver services to their residents for a low cost. When I first spoke to the marketing rep she described the services as “cruise ship like”. Since my mother travels a lot on high end cruises she was disappointed to find a Carnival cruise. Very small apartments that reminded me of a motel room. A AC unit installed in the wall and a small fan to blow the air into the bedroom. Ceiling tiles throughout. Food delivered by cart in the dining room. I can go on but bottom line is this is a low end option for people on a budget. The people seem friendly but not a place for my mother.

A home for my brother

My brother is the one that moved into this place. I told him I am jealous. It is perfect for him. Very clean and the staff is so helpful and kind. We are so glad [Removed] with A place for Mom put Sanford Estates on the list as a place to take a tour.

This community just opened in February and is 50% occupied, with 80% of units accounted for with deposits. Beautiful open, lots of natural light, airy floor plan. Great ammenities including a movie theater, nice workout room, lovely dining room and more... I really liked the feel of this community. the staff was friendly and seemed happy to be working there. They also greeted residents in passing by name. Cons - units are a little smaller with only kitchenettes (small full-sized refrigerator, small sink, and tiny counter space). Could expand with cart and add microwave and/or toaster oven, and coffee maker/ice tea maker.

Tell them Sparks sent you! He loves it here!

Top amenities, brand new construction and several apartment options to fit budgets and needs. The movie theatre is a dream complete with soft serve ice cream and freshly popped pop corn! Staff go out of their way to help residents feel part of a community. Tell them [Removed] sent you!

A new community.

My loved ones like living at Sanford Estates. The caregivers cater to the residents. They offer daily activities as well as a bus for trips and to take you to your appointments. The food is good and the community is clean. I would recommend this community.
