A very nice place to live

The staff here at Solstice Senior Living are very friendly, and I do believe it is a very good value for the money. The lunch time and supper time meals are very good. I have only gone for breakfast a couple of times and every time I am amazed with all the different things they have for breakfast.

Dad is Very Happy Here

I feel very safe with my dad here. They are very much taking precautions and taking Covid very seriously and following all of the rules very carefully and closely, which I really appreciate. They're very watchful of all of the residents. And they know me, even though I'm not there every day. When I do show up, they know exactly who I am, know my name, and remember me. They take very good care of my dad. He's happy with the food and the variety offered. Activities have been a little limited, understandably. But they still have things like outdoor luaus, different meeting groups, and take drives and take the residents shopping.

The best part of Solstice are the people. I enjoy my interactions with both the staff and my neighbors who live here. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. I have lived her for 4 years. I keep myself busy. I work in the resident store and handle all the finances. I also run the History class once a week. I am an ambassador and on resident council.

My tour review

This community was so nice. The people were nice and the food was so good. The only thing was that it was only independent. They said they would watch my loved one but I knew she would have to be moved if she got worse. It was a little outdated and dark. Also you had to provide your own appliances.

I like living here. I find it nice, quiet, and social. I love my apartment. It's a great size and very comfortable. The residents all really care about each other. I would recommend to other people. Non one makes you do activities - they are there if you want to participate..

An okay place

I think the person living here has to be pretty independent. For instance, my loved one fell once and the staff wouldn't help her get up. And there's nobody there from 6 pm to 7 am. So if they need help, there's no one to help. If other residents asked for help, they discouraged the residents from helping as well. They told us things before move-in that ended up not being true. They assured us multiple times my loved one would have a walk-in shower, but she didn't. Which was kind of a safety issue. Most of the staff were pretty nice. They seemed to be a little understaffed. The manager wasn't super empathetic, and didn't always seem to have the residents' best interests in mind. They seemed to be concerned about keeping their costs down, which in a way I appreciate. But it seems that was their focus more than care. The food was inconsistent, sometimes it was good and other times it wasn't. I think things would have been a little different if not for Covid restrictions.

Excellent

The people and staff members were great, and the rooms were fine. We would recommend this community to others based on geography, the location was convenient for our family. The one and only knock on the place was that it is just not in a good part of time.

It is a good place for your loved one. The staff were always friendly. The rooms are nice. The food was ok for my loved one, some days he liked it more and others not so much. The bathroom was extremely nice and it was a walk in bathroom.

A great and caring independent senior living community

They have been really vigilant during the pandemic and that has been a good thing in them keep the residents safe because they have had no cases. The food is good and they offer a variety. The staff is very caring and hardworking. Sometimes it takes a while to get something repaired, however, they do get it done. I would absolutely recommend this community. We are very pleased with Solstice.

Solstice Senior Living is a gem. We were impressed by the overall newness and maintenance of the gardens, building and units. Everyone was friendly, happy and optimistic. The activities calendar is packed with opportunities to socialize, exercise and go out into the community. The menu has a lot of variety, is very tasty and well balanced. I'm looking forward to moving our mother here.

Awesome Place!!

I have recently made the move into this community and so far I have no complaints of how things are going. My husband and I have a perfect apartment that has a balcony that over looks the beautiful courtyard. The staff have all been so wonderful to us and have really helped with the transition into this property. The food is amazing and the desserts are even better. Overall this place has been amazing and I would recommend it to anyone interested.
