  • Friendly Environment

    It is truly a very friendly environment. Residents are all very kind and helpful. I have recommend Solstice to others. The food is okay. The apartments are spacious. They have a lot of different floor plans. They have a decent amount of storage. The general layout is easy to follow. The biggest drawback is only one elevator.

  • Solstice certainly is NOT a Holiday

    The community was Essington Place when my family member moved in. At that time, my family member enjoyed the food and the activities offered. When Solstice took over from Holiday, the chef left and the food quality has dwindled down. Most nights, my family member and friends eat cold sandwiches due to inedible food choices. The residents pay way too much for the "chef-prepared feasts at mealtime" to be eating cold sandwiches at lunch and/or dinner on a regular basis! Worse than the food, however, is the fact that as soon as Solstice took over, they immediately raised the rent of each resident by approximately 10%. Because most seniors, including my family member, live on a fixed income already stretched thin by the cost of retirement living, this seems ridiculous. While willing to negotiate to a somewhat lower increase, 5-8% rather than the full 10%, it has already been stated by Solstice that there will be an increase of at least 5% each year! Apparently they feel this is an acceptable practice. My family member who loved the community and chose it over three others has asked me to begin researching other communities again. It is disheartening that in such a short period of time there have been so many negative changes.

  • Clean facility and nice staff

    I was originally looking for a place for my dad because he needed somewhere that was assisted living. This place seemed like it was okay from the tour I took. From what I was able to see, it looked clean and the staff seemed really nice. My dad wound up needing a little more care at the time than they were able to provide but overall it was a nice facility.
