We toured Stratford Court and it was a good facility and was actually our second choice. It is bigger, they have assisted living and independent living so you can move up later on if you have to. The average age of residents here was around 85/86 so it was not the best fit for my mom who is more active.
It is beautiful but they do not have a one bedroom in the assisted living- only studios and my sister wants a one bedroom.

Thank you for visiting our community and we're glad you found it quite beautiful. In our independent living neighborhoods we offer a variety of studio, 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, while our assisted living neighborhood has studio apartments. For families looking specifically for 1-bedroom assisted living options we have a sister community in Palm Harbor we work with that does have that as an option. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance as you look for senior living options for your sister.
My husband and I have been living in Stratford Court for over three years and we are happy and content. This is a beautiful and well maintained place. The staff is helpful and caring. Dining in lovely settings with two meals a day. Once a week housekeeping including doing our sheets and towels. We do have a washer and dryer in our apart- ment for our personal laundry. We also have a small dog. Very important to us.

Thanks for this lovely review Carolyn and Jerry. It was nice to read your positive feedback on so many aspects of our community -- from the apartments, to housekeeping, to dining and finally to our team. We love having both of you and your precious dog, Bella, as residents, and are glad you call Stratford Court home.
Extravagant looking and TOOOOO expensive.

Please contact me at the community at your earliest convenience as I would welcome a more in depth discussion about your concerns about cost.
My grandma chose to go here straight from rehab after a fall. She doesn't seem happy. It was a big change, she lived in a beautiful condo, now she lives in something like a hotel room, with a mini fridge and a really loud air conditioner like you would have in a hotel. So it's not very homey to me. I've been talking to her about moving to a place that would be more like her condo. She's also not allowed to go any where without an approved person picking her up. So she can't call a cab to go to Publix. They don't do bus outings or transportation. They also didn't want her seeing her own eye doctor, they wanted her to go to one of their doctors. I found all this to be strange. She's her own power of attorney. I just wish I could get her to consider someplace else where she would be happy. She says the food is good and there's lots of activities. For me it was really sad to visit her there, I felt like she was living in a hotel room just waiting to die or something. Cut off from the world, and unable to do the things she once loved to do. I know she is limited due to mobility issues, but they won't let her do anything herself which will just cause her to become more immobile.

Suzy, I am the Executive Director and was disappointed to read your impressions of our community. Your grandmother has settled in nicely into the suite she picked out, is making new friends, and is very happy here. I encourage you to speak directly with your grandmother or her POA about your concerns so you can hear for yourself how she feels about her new home -- and feel free to stop by my office anytime if I can help clarify any questions you might have about life at Stratford Court.
My husband [name removed] and I have been residents of Stratford Court Adult Living in Palm Harbor for a little over a year and a half and we are very happy here. The concept is of a gentile retirement hotel, with an attractive private living space, supplemented by inviting community venues (indoor and out) and a fine dining restaurant. I am particularly pleased with the housekeeping - both in my apartment and in the common areas, the food and service, and the availability of opportunities to create "community" with my fellow residents in many different ways. When asked how we like it here, my husband always says, "I'm happy and [name removed] is ecstatic.
My husband and I are very happy residents of Stratford Court - food service is exceptional, housekeeping very satisfactory, repair and maintenance prompt and efficient. Friendly, helpful staff, spotless facility, compatible neighbors. When asked if he likes it here, my husband always answers, "I am happy and my wife is ecstatic."
My mother in-law was in the ALF. I can't say enough good about the staff, care and homey environment. They were always just a phone call away if you needed to talk with someone about your loved ones care. We went to visit weekly and stopped in when not expected. They are familiar with the needs of older individuals. My mother in-law was a functioning Alzheimer's patient but would have mood swings. They found the correct medication for her to keep her functioning, crocheting etc. without appearing to be medicated at all. They adjusted as was necessary. She was happier than we had seen her all her life. She loved the staff. They called if there were problems and discussed care options. They also put on wonderful holiday and monthly shows for the residents, they took those who were able out to lunch, did daily chair exercises and craft activities as well as a variety of games that they loved to play. They have a lovely dining area, choices of food like ordering off a menu and have a living room like atmosphere with a large screen TV. They also allow those able to go out to sit by the pool and sit on the porch that has a grill for planned picnic like activities. Supervised by staff when necessary. There was one pet dog that was well known by residents and I noticed that at least one person had a white cat in their room. Never saw it out of their room so I'm guessing that it was their personal cat. The staff knew all the residents by name and were very helpful as the same people cared for your loved one daily because they had no one leave their position for years. Many of the staff had been long time employees. The areas were always clean and well kept. Every problem that you brought to their attention was addressed. My mother in law would come to our holiday visits and would ask to go back to her home when she was ready. When we initially placed her in the ALF, her initial attitude was that she admittedly did not want to stay and was verbally and nearly physically abusive about it. Glaring daggers at me. They advised that we not come back for a few days to a week, for her to get used to the idea and they were right. She lived their for many years and was happy and content. The Director, Sue Gianelli knows her stuff when it comes to Senior behavior and medical needs. I would highly recommend.
Mom, who is 91, broke her hip. She is going there from the hospital tonight. I had a diff place all picked out for her close to home, but I read the reviews and nixed the whole idea. The other place had dirty floors and allegedly drugged the dementia patients to shut them up. Not for my mother. This place, after looking at 3 others, impressed me. Fireplace, hardwood floors, wall-to-wall pretty CARPET in the hallways, the largest 32" tvs for each patient.... but mostly it was the decor and the smiles and alertness on the patients' faces. Nobody was sitting there looking dead. All the elderly people were talking, smiling, doing something. That says a lot to me. I will update. She is going there tonight for her rehab.
Not really impressed with their memory care. It looked like an insane asylum. It didn't look anything like a place that you would want to live out the rest of your life.
First one I looked at. Very nice.
