Value for cost
Our family had an in person tour and it is a smaller community with a really great outdoors space, but it was just to small for our loved one. Everything else we really loved, the people were friendly and answered all of our questions but the rooms were just to small.
Sodalis - Garden Ridge is close to perfect, it is very homey and just a good fit for our loved one. Our loved one does not participate in the activities but from what we have seen they look fairly good. We do think the value for cost is right in line with other communities. Also a huge thing for our loved one was to find a place that allows smoking and this place does.
Facilities was nice with a hill country atmosphere with covered patio space. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Studio apartment a good size with many storage options and space for mom's family pictures or personal items to display. Built in bench in the walk-in shower.
The staff that I dealt with were super nice. They had just gotten a brand new community director, so I tried to give them some grace as he was getting acclimated. Thing might be better now that he's been there longer. But the staff were very helpful and seemed to really care. The day we dropped her off, I was not all that impressed, especially for a respite stay. We had to bring everything, including a shower curtain and her own toilet paper. When we got there to her room, there were still dirty sheets on the bed with dog hair all over them. They took care of it pretty quickly. I just wish the room had been ready for her. The room in general just didn't feel clean. It was dusty. They also told us that they did laundry every few days, but later I found dirty clothes stuck in the closet and on the shelf where her clean clothes were. She has dementia, so I think they just needed to be more on top of things with her and coach her more. I wasn't able to visit as much with Covid and couldn't tell what was going on. They told us their meals were chef prepared, but the one lunch I saw was something I could have prepared and was delivered cold. So I wasn't impressed, but I'm not sure what the other meals were like. She also had a health condition that required pushing lots of water, and I only saw an 8-oz glass of iced tea and a 4-oz glass of water. So I don't think they were pushing the water for her. But they just had a new director, and Snowmageddon had just happened. If I were talking to someone, I would say go visit because things may be better. I'd like to give credit to one of the maintenance workers. When we got there, we had to bring her own TV, and he worked really hard to make sure that got set up for her. He was so nice. She only had a bed in her room at the time, and he went and got a recliner for her so she would have something to sit in in her room. He was fabulous. And I really did like that the community is kind of away from things. She had a pretty view out her window and could watch the deer. So the aesthetics of the place, especially the outside, were very nice.
Sodalis Garden Ridge is like a country home, it has some woods around it. It seems to resemble our loved ones home. The rooms are nice, large and have plenty of storage space. the meals they serve are good and really nice.
Staff is great my mother receives great care.
My dad has lived here for two years and the community is outstanding. The staff treats the residents as family members as one of their own. They have really been outstanding the last 7 months of Covid lockdown.
My dad, and his wife, were in need assistance due to declining health and falls that resulted in hospital visits. Though both of them strongly opposed any assistance, and denied that they were in need, they reluctantly agreed to at least "go look" at some places. After visiting several facilities around the area, Sodalis @ Garden Ridge was on the short list. They both liked the nice "Texas Hill Country" location and feel of the facility. The super nice and understanding staff really made them comfortable and willing to "give it a try". Dad and his wife shared a single apartment, which was equipped with a full size bath with shower. It was large enough to hold everything that they needed. They were able to bring framed pictures and knick-knacks from home to decorate their apartment and make it feel like home. The staff have been very caring and accommodating, ensuring that they receive good care. I highly recommend Sodalis @ Garden Ridge and would suggest that if you are looking for a facility for your loved ones, to at least visit and see for yourself.
It is a safe place. The staff responds to you. The rooms are comfortable. They are willing to move you to a new room if you have an issue with the room. The food is average. My mother in law smokes they provided a safe comfortable place for her to go. Very non-judgemental and helpful staff.
My mom has been in the Memory Care at Sodalis for over a year now. The staff of caregivers are all amazing. She loves the food and enjoys the activities. The rooms and living areas are beautiful and it feels like home. I feel like everyone here truly cares about my mom and takes excellent care of her. We feel so blessed to have found Sodalis.
Excellent Management and clinical staff. Thank you. Values include "integrity" and "engagement." There is a daily "Today's Activities" schedule which rarely happens. This leads me to question the "Engaged Living" motto and integrity value. I greatly appreciate the aides who do engage my mother!
I have lived here 1 year and I am satisfied.
The staff very friendly and very helpful in all matters. The kitchen staff always give us a very nice meal. They always want to give what we like to eat. Nearly all the residents are friendly. But the laundry care could be improved. They hang up our clothes with the hangers we provide.
This fits my mom well. Not large, she has adjusted well and loves staff and fellow residents. She would not have done good in a large facility. She feels "at home." Mom mom is very taken care of and loved!
I have been a resident here for three years and the care I receive here is the very best I could ask for. I would recommend Sodalis to anyone.
I am happy here. There are many activities, it is up to the person to participate. The help is very-very nice and supportive. Thank you!
Sodalis Garden Ridge has been a great transition for my dad. FOr the past 3 years he has been taken care of with healthy meals, clean rooms, activities but most of all caring people. All the management, nurse, cooks, assistants, cleaning crew all have a vested interest in my dad's well being. I have peace of mind when I'm not there and that's all I can ask for.
Very caring. Personal interaction with my father. Informative - any mishaps as far as falls or personal care my Dad needs they let me know about right away. Accommodating. Nursing staff is great also, med distribution is wonderful.
My mother is very satisfied living at Sodalis. The community is caring and positive. Staff always has time for my mother when needed. Always there to answer any questions or concerns. Like every community there is always room for improvement on some issues but not to the point that affects mother’s care. My mother, sister and myself are very satisfied.
My mom has been here for a year. Sodalis is very good at marketing, but very poor at follow through. There activities calendar is full of things that look great, but only about 30-40% of them actually occur. Chef prepared meals include cold sandwiches and canned soup. Most residents are dissatisfied, but concerns fall an deaf ears. No management to be found on the weekends. In fact their work days run about 9:30-4:00, when they are actually here. More time is spent marketing the facility at chamber of commerce functions, at the SA rodeo, etc. marketing, marketing marketing, instead of taking care of the needs of current residents. EXTREMELY DISSAPPOINTED that I chose to put my mom here.!
