A great community under great management!

I love the continuum of care offered, from independent living to memory care, with options for duplexes and apartments. Lots of residential outdoor space, courtyards and gardens. In a quiet neighborhood. Springwood is wonderful!

Don't even think about moving here!

Moved here in March of 2013. My building is the Fountains, the independent living building on this campus. Other residents are amazingly compatible and friendly. There has been a rather constant turnover in managers most of them were average, no more. Less than a year ago we were gifted with the most amazing, empathetic, hard-working, creative woman you could imagine. Every resident in this building has been impressed and even more so with the corona virus upending our lives. To protect us, an aging and vulnerable group, this manager has gone above and way beyond. We gave been cared for in every way ---however today we find that this person, our wonderful caregiver, has been fired and we are left feeling that one more factor in our lives has changed and unnecessarily. What executive director in her right mind would take an action like this at a time like this? I question her stability and would like the owners of Springwood to begin a serious investigation.

Be Careful and Watch Closely

They are baffled by any care changes. Ordering new medications, no lift policy even when a senior needs a little help and they broke a pair of glasses with no offer to repair. Did admit the staff broke them however. Their menu of charges waiver and they will charge at times what is not provided. My relative was lonely and staff often stood at the front desk chatting with each other. We had quite a few missing items including some jewelry. They did not investigate or offer any remedies. We moved and our relative is doing tons better. We were in assisted living and it was very quiet most of the time. Little going on and food was so so. They claim to have a nutritionist but should look at service and offering an adequate meal that is not so high in salt and fat.

Stay away from this "home"

Resident of the assisted living; had to wait at the table in the dining room for 30-50 minutes before the food came. Medical staff ran out of medications without notifying family. Personal items disappeared from the room, many of value, administration was very slow to respond to inquiries; often over a week to return an email or phone call. If your loved one has any medical needs, like monitoring of blood pressure, or sugar levels that need attention urgently this is not the place for them. Do not let resident keep anything of value. Would not recommend this place.

I had visited Springwood several times before signing on with APFM. Although this is an older facility, it appears to have been updated nicely over time. The separate memory care wing is impressive and has a home-like feeling. I would consider Springwood when decision making time arrives.

All the tenants are friendly and helpful

When I was first touring this community, I was very impressed by how active everyone was. They offer a lot of activities and the tenants really take advantage of that and participate in a lot of things. All of the tenants I’ve met are very friendly and helpful. The staff members are also nice and they go out of their way to help you. Everyone knows your name after only a few days of being here. The facility itself is nice and the grounds are kept up with nicely. For activities, they offer a lot of games, clubs, and 3 different exercise classes. I would recommend this facility to other families.

I toured Springwood while looking at living options for myself. However, the person in charge who I toured with did not have a room available, so I wasn’t able to see one. All in all, they seemed very unprepared, so I chose another community.

A long wait list. The least expensive option I saw. The place seemed nice. I may have caught the representative on a bad day; she wasn't eager to take us on.

A great community tour

We toured this community that is very big. The community was nice and clean and the dining. They offered a lot of activities. The staff were warm and caring for the care for what we wanted. We liked that dining area and the activities that are offered are good for everyone to stay active when possible. We would highly recommend this community for good care and value for others.

Great nutrition and well balanced meals!!

I love how caring and genuinely concerned the staff are about there residents at this community. They take a lot of pride in there job and it shows through there work. The facility is always very well maintained and clean which is comforting to know my mother is living in a well taken care of establishment. She has been really enjoying the meals they serve and the dinning experience with the company of the other residents.

Terrible customer service---keeps rent and community fee after a one day stay

terrible customer service. They assessed my mom, admitted her, then asked her to leave roughly 20 hours later. Refuses to refund any portion of the $1,000 community fee and is insistent upon keeping the 10 days rent after vacating apartment that is specified in the lease. The facility's position is that they were not equipped for the level of care my mother needs--- and that her behavior was vastly divergent from all of the assessments--- never any admission that perhaps they made a mistake in admitting her in the first place. Flawed system that allows the elderly to have their life savings gobbled up.

Our Sr Advisor was the best. Gave us 9 choices, We were under a very short time frame to find a new location. We found what we wanted and what worked best for our mom. Definitely recommend using this site.

We Saw Nice Thing On The Tour

They were a nice looking community and it was clean. The apartment we were shown, it was very small. Otherwise, during our tour there were people all around doing things. They seemed happy in their community. This place was too far for us.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

Dad is doing exceptionally well at Springbrook Retirement and it has truly turned out to be the perfect place for him. He has the luxury of having the assistance although he is still able to do most things on his own. There are plenty of activities for him to participate in if he'd like and the staff are very nice, friendly, and easy to work with most of the time. Dad has his good days and bad days with the food but can still cook in his room if he chooses to do so. There is a large turnover with the staff in the dining area although that's no big deal. Overall we are very happy with the place and would definitely recommend.

Review of Bayshore Guest Home - Nokomis, FL

Thank you for so much for the wonderful care you gave my mother. She loved her time at Springwood special thanks to all the fine "companion" specialists who made her day.

Denver Springwood Retirement Facility not for us

The five star ratings must be a result of them hiring a company to clean up online reviews. We had a family member there briefly; and moved out within two months. Nobody gets to pick where they sit for meals....the staff puts people together. Grandparent was only allowed in during meals...no open kitchen. Food is bland at best.. no variety whatsoever. We went in to check out the Corner "store" and food was expired and only changed when they decided to go to the grocery store..once every few months For the money we paid, and older condition, there are much newer options available now. This is just our family's opinion, maybe others don't mind the strict environment. The facility is older, outdated. - The rooms are average in size and not recently renovated. - The campus can be hard to navigate; it's hard for visitors to figure out where to go. - Food is average. - The residents who don't go to activities tend to isolate in their rooms

Response from Springwood Retirement

September 22, 2015

Dear AnonMGRD: This is really surprising to read that you had such a disappointing experience here. I find it hard to believe since what you mentioned about dining, food, corner store and updated apartments is all false. I will address each of your concerns: 1. No one scrubs our reviews, they are all organic and genuine. 2. We have been steadily remodeling apartments as they come open, but future residents have the option of keeping the existing kitchen and bath style to save $200 a month on their rent. Perhaps your grandparent elected this option? 3. The entire common area of the building was remodeled 6 or so years ago. 4. July 6th, 2015 we converted to an open dining format which is restaurant style with the dining room open from 10:30-6 M-F and 11:30-4 on Sat and Sun. The menu has many options for entrees, soups, salads and sandwiches. This will seem much less restrictive than the old format which your grandparent likely experienced. If someone is more introverted, or has been living alone for a long time, it may take an invitation to sit with others or an arranged seating before they feel comfortable eating with others. But certainly the residents choose where they sit. There is no assigned seating in our dining rooms. 5. Marcos shops every week to replenish the Corner Store with fresh snacks and drinks. 6. This is a 15 acre campus. Just like any large campus (school, retirement community,shopping mall...) it takes some time to figure out where things are but once you do, it is simple. We provide a map for those who request one, but most folks do not have a problem after the first visit. 7. The building you refer to, Springwood Independent Living Apartments, is just that...Independent Living. We provide many opportunities to socialize and participate in activities, but if a resident chooses to stay in his or her apartment then that is their choice. We don't force anyone to participate. In Assisted Living, the staff will be more proactive about inviting folks to participate in activities since they may forget or not be able to read the schedule due to low vision. Hence the "Assisted" in the name. But in Independent Living people are expected to be self directed and able to make their own decisions about what they wish to do or not. I invite you to visit again, dine with us and let us address your concerns. I hate to think you left with a bad taste in your mouth. You may call us at [removed].

Not Very Welcoming

When we moved all of my mother's stuff in to her room, no one came up to say "hi" or welcomed us. They would just look at us and walk by. I think they could be a little more friendly, or just a little more welcoming when first moving in.
