My dad is having a great experience. He's very happy that he chose Silver Glen.

It's a newer facility (3 YO), and a couple of residents told my dad they had moved from other places, and this one is much nicer all around. Staff is friendly and attentive. Housekeeping is every two weeks, and "sufficient." Food is varied and good quality. Family can even join in on meals! ($15). Good portions, fresh, flavorful and healthy choices. He likes 90% of the meals. Big upgrade from store-bought frozen meals. His plan includes two meals a day, so he's happy to be able to get out to grocery shop and buy breakfast items. It seems like most residents skip lunch. Move in was simple. We had to do it ourselves, and just let them know when we wanted to move in. He didn't move in the day he took possession, so we moved a few things in ahead of time. It was a much smaller space than his house, so move-in was really one day. I would absolutely recommend Silver Glen Senior Living. There are lots of options for housing, and lots of activities for the residents. You could be as active or reclusive as you want.

Happy with our decision

Silvery Glen Senior Living has been a great place for my mom. We chose this facility because it is close to both my sister and I, it is a very clean place, and they offer restaurant style dining in 2 dining rooms.

Bad food

I had to laugh at the response which stated that the residents consistently compliment the menu. Perhaps in the assisted living portion. There is little variety and I see them push their food away. Most is fried, frozen, reheated. Rarely do you see fruit or veggies or a real meal. They would be better off with lean cuisines and a bowl of fresh fruit. The place is gorgeous, but that's where Spectrum put all their $$$$$. Kind, compassionate workers, but if you check out reviews on their other websites you'll see the food is a major complaint. This is my second review, so it should only count as one person. Food is getting worse, not better. I will be the first to post a positive review if corporate changes the food to tasty and healthy.

Tour experience

Silver Glen is a brand new facility and it is extremely nice. I would have loved to move my mom here but unfortunately they do not take Medicaid, so we eventually would have had to move her again. The tour was great though and the sales director was very friendly.

I toured this community and it was really pretty. Very nice and new. I didn't quite get the 'at home' feeling here. I also didn't see a single resident out and about while touring, which I thought was kind of strange. Ultimately, I felt like it was too big for my loved one and would be easy for her to feel lost here.

It's ok, but needs improvement. Used to be better.

This is a beautiful facility. The common areas are always super clean. The executive director and accounting director both do a great job and do everything that they can. The food isn't great, not good quality, not cooked properly, and not a good variety. I'm there every night and I see it. No one is happy with it. A few weeks ago, they were understaffed and made the dining buffet style, which made it hard for residents with walkers etc. It was a mess. They say breakfast is ok, but the rest is awful. Turnover is very high in meals/dining and they can't seem to get it together. I bring my mom outside food a lot of the time Turnover seems pretty high in all departments. Housekeeping visits are about 10 minutes bi-weekly, but they don't always clean well. A lot of times, mom turns them away. Either way, I clean for her frequently. Communication with the family is not as good as it used to be. They're using a new system and I'm not very familiar with it yet. Twice now, the staff has entered her apartment without notice. Once while sleeping and once when she wasn't there but came back to find them inside. Both times freaked her out, especially the second time. The activities are weird to me. We were told there would be outings, but it's mostly small games and some are juvenile. The new activity director is good and really trying, but there are still no outings. I think the residents need more to do, especially outings to get them away once in awhile. When I first moved her in, the facility was way different and met our expectations way more than it does now. Especially for the price. Compared to what I've looked at, I would still recommend them I guess. But it definitely needs improvements.

It was a nice and newer facility. The apartments were smaller. They did not offer too many activities. It felt sterile and cold, and was not really a good fit for my loved one.

Dear Anonymous, we appreciate all feedback because it provides us an opportunity to review our processes and make changes where opportunity exists. We do recognize that personal taste comes into play when talking about food, but we do challenge your comments about quality of food, variety, and the allegation of high sodium content. Our residents have consistently given rave reviews of our restaurant menu, both variety of options and the high quality of their meals. Additionally, every menu item has been reviewed by a registered dietitian in our test kitchen to ensure they meet nutritional standards. We would encourage you to connect with the community Executive Director if you have questions or concerns regarding your dining experience. If you would like more information about our menus, please visit the community website where you can find a copy of the restaurant menu and access a video about how our menus are developed.

We really liked Silver Glen, it is actually the sister facility to the place that we chose for our loved one. At Silver Glen the rooms are bigger and the facility itself is only about a year old so it is newer and updated. The only reason we did not choose them was due to the locaiton. The other facility was closer to us and to my loved ones doctors.

Would Recommend

Overall it was a positive experience. I wish they did a little bit more getting people into the mainstream. It's a huge change for older people to move to senior living. And I think they need people to reach out more to get newer residents to meals and activities. It can be really intimidating to walk into a big room of people on your own. But it's a beautiful facility. Mom's apartment is very nice and a good for seniors. She has a washer/dryer and everything there that she needs, which is great. The amenities are really nice. They seem to have a good variety of activities, and the activity room is really nice. I think it's a little costly but reasonable for the area.
