Great experience

Schaffer Heights is a great match for my Mom. We were very happy with bldg staff and how easy it was to get everything settled to move her in right away. The building is very nice, the apt. is very cute and just the right size for a one bedroom. Catholic charities and office of the aging is right in the building so it is easy to set up services like transportation. They also offer cooked meals( for a charge) a few times a week. The meals are great and large portions. The rent is affordable and the staff is very friendly.

Schaffer Heights experience-good

My parents have lived here for a few years now. Schaffer Heights has a full calendar of in-house and off site events, buses to two major grocery stores, monthly trips to area malls, and a community room for movie night and social events. An in-house food service sells and delivers wonderful hot meals twice a week and offers a menu of hot and cold breakfast items in the community room on Mondays. There is a spot within each apartment for W/D, but there is also a laundry room on each floor. A trash room on each floor has a trash chute and a place for recyclables. Maintenance is on top of things in the building. There is an on-site adult day care center. The first three floors are county offices related to the aging, caregivers, elder abuse, etc. There is an attorney who volunteers his time once a week to residents. There is a hairdresser that also comes to the building once a week or so. There is someone at the security desk 24/7. Price for 2 BR with balcony $896. One bedroom apartments are obviously less.The only drawback to the building is that there is only one small community room which tends to be in use a lot of the time. There is no place for the residents to congregate except in the public lobby. The residents also do not have access to a bank.
