As soon as we walked through the front doors, we knew this was the place for my mother-in-law. It feels as though you are at a resort. From the decor to the open floor plan and many living room sitting areas it has such character and style. We looked at several independent living facilities and they do not even compare. The staff is wonderful and they all made my mother-in-law feel as though she was right at home. She is so excited about her new adventure and can not wait to move in.

Ron - I'm a loved one of a resident or client

This facility was ok before Solstice took it over. Now I wouldn't kennel my dog there. The rent continually goes up , as the services and quality goes down. There is no one to express your concerns to as I have tried many times, even at the corporate level and have been completely ignored. I was in the midst of moving my mother from Solstice but she past away before I was able to. I don't think I know of a more uncaring greedy facility than Solstice at a time when you are devastated by the passing of a loved one. Solstice made our lives as difficult as possible at a time when we could have used a helping hand.

I Stopped Looking When I Found Montgomery Park

First of all the staff -- they are wonderful. So kind and helpful. My mother was having a little trouble meeting people, so the staff introduced her to two lovely women whom she now meets for lunch and dinner every day. They've become friends, and that's emboldened Mom to venture out a little more into the Montgomery Park community. Second, the facility is bright, airy, spacious, and the apartments are bigger than the other facilities I looked at. Big rooms, wide halls and doorways, walk-in showers, lots and lots of closet space. Montgomery Park is stylish, comfortable, and safe. Third, the food is delicious Mom didn't eat very well when she lived with me, but she's eating better and enjoying it a whole lot more now. She's diabetic, and there is always a range of things for her to choose from. I'm so glad we found Montgomery Park. I feel really good about Mom being there because I know she's comfortable, happy and safe.
