Would Recommend With Reservations

I think once they're fully staffed again, it will be a good place. The management and staff are really nice and helpful. They're accommodating and proactive, and they do what they can. The facility itself is really nice. But they have staffing shortages, just like everywhere does right now. So the services / amenities / activities they advertise are not fully in effect right now. They're short on housekeeping staff. They have been running out of food consistently and are subsequently making substitutions that they don't necessarily notify they residents about. It's not wonderful, but not horrible. Again, I think when they're back to full staff and are fully up and running again, things will be much better.

My Review

Solstice is my destinysays it all! The only exclusively independent living facility I think. Ambiance is prepossessing. Residents collegial and supportive. Staff and management professional efficient yet informal and friendly. Residents delighted having students as servers learning experience for them too. Management amendable to suggestions and into community action, though would like to see more. Facilities/services run in well oiled manner even in absence of Director. Numerous activities-vibrant. Food is ok not your mom's home cooking but accommodating.

My Review

a retirement home is the best place for me! After my husband died, it seemed as though there was no longer a need to be in a big house that needed upkeep that I no longer could do...or afford to do. I no longer have to cook, clean or be along again! There are activities just out my door if I choose to participate there's a beauty shop on the premise as well. Best choice for me!

It is a great community if you are looking for senior living. The best thing is they are very accommodating for someone that is more independent. They bent over backwards to assist my loved one during their stay. The staff was very nice to work with.

We chose Solstice Senior Living at the time because of the apartment that she was able to get. The size of the room was very spacious. The administrator and staff are wonderful and very helpful. I would recommend to others looking.
