Tour of Solstice Senior Living

I toured this community with my loved one and upon first impression, she did not want to go in. The yard was unkept with fallen branches and dead plants/flowers. The building was under renovation, which is a good thing, but it did add to the rugged outwardly appearance. We liked the community inside, but chose to go another route.

Thank you for your feedback. . Our community is currently undergoing a renovation, so there may be a little extra construction dust; but we are excited to be making improvements to our community to better serve our residents. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to our executive director, Lisa Meinecke, at pointdefianceed@solsticeseniorliving.com or (253) 649-2827.

Recommended with needed changes

I would recommend this community for your loved one. There are a few things that they could improve on like the friendliness from some of the staff. You would just expect more from the staff in this type of setting when it comes to friendliness. They advertise cleaning every week and right now it is every two weeks due to a staffing shortage and we are not sure how long this will be happening. The landscaping could also be improved in certain areas of the community. Just make sure you research to make sure it is a good fit.

I would recommend

We chose Solstice Senior Living mostly because of the space. The unit they had available was an end unit and it was full of windows and natural light so it was perfect. The value for the money compared to other places we looked at was lower. She does say that the food is a little bland. I would recommend to others looking.

A good place to check out

I would recommend examining your needs and make sure that you are getting what you need from the community. For me and my loved one the friendliness is perfect. If you want to be involved with things you can and if you don't you can no one pushes you . People are happy to talk and be among each other.

Warm and Welcoming Place

I would tell others that this is a warm and welcoming environment. There are deer on the lawn every morning. My loved one enjoys it here. The community have been COVID free,. The cleaning staff is friendly and they keep the community clean as well. The only trouble I see s the campus is very hilly. This could be a concern for those with mobility issues.

Awesome community

We chose this community because the staff and the residents were outgoing, friendly, and extremely pleasant. I felt that they offered what he needed and fit his budget. The food was awesome. The chef was open to meeting with residents to discuss special dietary needs. You could not ask for more!

Good option

It is a good,friendly place to be. They have a lot of things going on usually. Food is not the best.Room sizes are good, I have a large unit with lots of windows. They have beautiful outdoor space. We have deer and ducks. It is a beautiful place to walk around. The staff goes out of their way to meet your needs.

Solstice Senior Living is in a beautiful setting and for independent living it really is a good community. The staff are really caring and willing to help the residents. The food isn't really that good. It is a nice place to live for independent living.

We did not care much for this place. Our tour guide was very nice and informative, however the facility needed a lot of remodeling. The rooms that were available and ready to show exhibited very poor quality on the remodel.

We just secured a studio apartment for my mom here. The studio is very spacious, has a reasonable amount of kitchen cabinets, and great windows. There is so much to keep my mom busy and engaged. There is also a lot of help for those days that she doesn't feel well. We also got to try out the food, and it was great! The chicken breast was moist, and I love the bread rolls and cake that are made on-site!

Couldn't Have Asked For A Better Place

My mom loved living here and she hopes that she will be able to return here but time will tell. It was very shortly after moving here that my mom fell and broke her hip and for now she is in rehab hoping to be able to return back here. She was loving the food it was wonderful we have all eaten here it's amazing. The staff is wonderful so kind and attentive and caring. The house is so clean very well cared for you can tell that take pride in the service they offer.

I was very pleased with the overall feel of the village. I thought the studio was small but 500 sq ft is small. I liked the small fridge and the bathroom was terrific but was pleased to see people out and about and happy. The price is a little high for my family member. .

Happy environment!!

I have no complaints of how things are going for my mother since she has made the move into this community. I go visit a couple times a week and she seems very happy and comfortable in her new living environment. She has had no complaints about the meals and has enjoyed participating in activities with the residents from time to time.

I do not recommend!

When residents move out, they do not rekey the apartment. They have mold in the apartments and all they do is bleach it, bleach does not kill mold. There is new management and they do not interact with the residents, in fact, they do not have management on site at night time. It is a scary place and there have been worse things that have happened, but they have not done anything about it.
