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 The facility is older, outdated.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 RetirementSeptember 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].
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.Reviewed on A Place For Mom
