  • Awful food

    Daily chef-prepared meals from scratch? If frozen is "from scratch" then that is true. But still, the food is terrible for most of the time. "From pleasant housekeepers, to attentive servers at mealtime" - housekeepers are servers and servers are housekeepers. Nobody cares about what residents have to say - they and their families are asked for patience all the time. It used to be better but now it became a terrible place.

  • The Gables at Guilford ??? Are you sure ???

    The Gables at Guilford ??? Well here's how our visit went: Driving at a moderate speed on the entrance road, we were tailgated by someone in a big hurry. When I signaled to pull into a parking space in the "Visitors" lot the guy blew his horn at us. OK we said "he might have a medical emergency he's attending to...no problem". We walked toward the front entrance, saw him briskly walking toward the building, and passed his car in guess what...yep...the handicapped spaces. Our scheduled appointment was for 10:00AM on 2/17/2017 but you already know that and we walked in thru the entrance door at 10:04, walked up to the receptionist desk and were told that [removed] had a client with him and would be about 10 minutes...no problem. 15 minutes later, [removed] door opens up and out walks [removed] and the a**h**e that blew his horn at us and parked illegally in the handicapped spaces. Talk about shocked? Well it gets even better. The 2 of them walked by us and [removed[ said he'd be right back in about 10 minutes to give this guy the tour. OK 10 minutes. Shortly after that, hearing the conversation between my wife and I, which indicated our displeasure, the receptionist told us that this guy was a "walk-in" and she mentioned that he had come in at 9:50, which of course was a lie. She had no idea what transpired in the parking lot until we told her. That's about when her jaw started to quiver. We said "but we scheduled a 10:00AM appointment". I can't tell you how long after that we waited because when a person has been treated that badly, the sense of time is displaced with anger. But I do know this, still no sign of [removed] and we walked out the door at 10:40...20 minutes after [removed] took this guy on the tour. We are looking for a suitable place for my mom to live out however much time she has left, and at The Gables of Guilford???.....I wouldn't board my dog there.
