Gardens at Barry Road Review

So far, our experience with The Gardens at Barry Road has been great. They have a ton of activities provided for the residents and mom is getting involved and interacting with others which makes us happy. Whenever I ask mom how they treat her she says that they are all so friendly and caring, she is much happier here than she was at her previous facility. We have no complaints at all.... Read more

Thank you for your comments, Jenn, Your leadership in the Memory Care Neighborhood has taken the Resident Experience to the next level! When I visit, I love to see the residents engaged in Music Therapy, painting classes, games, and other stimulating activities. The Team has come together to make this an amazing neighborhoog.

Proud of this Team

I am so proud of the team at The Gardens at Barry Road. Their dedication to serving our residents is second-to-none. So many of our team members go above and beyond their "job descriptions" to do whatever needs to be done to fulfill a need or preference of a resident. Every time I visit to check in on this community, I hear from multiple residents that they are most thankful for the people who care for them. Many residents even tell me that if a certain employee ever leaves, they are going right out the door with them. I hear this about multiple different employees from different residents. This is a community that is more like a family. I love it!

Loved the people I met

I visited The Gardens and during my tour I met many of the care partners. I asked each one how long they had worked there...many were five plus years. We were invited to stay for lunch. The food was Great! The soup was from scratch and tasted wonderful. We liked the onebedroom apartment that has a walk out to the gardens. Really liked this place.

This is where our mother currently lives. They are horrible. Three Executive Directors, three memory care team leads & managers in an year in a half. Currently no Activity Manager or personal. The are using employees from the Assisted Living side to fill in. No training on memory care. They do not know the residents and their needs. We would not recommend.

Highly recommend!

The few times that we have been able to visit the community, the cleanliness of the place is just exceptional, and house keeping comes in every day to clean our loved ones room and the bathroom. The staff members are fantastic and the care services are beyond excellent. The maintenance guys came to help us move her to a different room and they even came back the next day to hang up her paintings. Our loved one participates in the exercise classes every morning, she loves the arts and crafts and she enjoys the church services every Sunday.

A happy home!

The care services are good, and they have great activities going on. We like that this community is kind of small, so the staff really gets to know the residents. Every staff member that we have encountered just has a great disposition and seem to really enjoy what they doing.

A warm, cozy and loving environment for your loved one!

We looked at three other places, and The Gardens had very warm colors and we know right then our loved one would feel at home. She really enjoyed playing bingo before COVID, and her room was more on the smaller side but it was adequate for her. She did hate the food, the quality was not good. One negative we did have, is once she was moved out of the community, we were not able to go in right away to get her furniture due to COVID. We were told no one was on the waiting list for that room, and we would not be charged for not picking up the furniture right away. Once we did pick it up we were actually charged. However, once our mother passed, the staff sent us a dozen roses, which we were really touched by. They loved her and were very kind towards us.

Beware of Memory Care at Gardens

We moved my mom in on [date removed]. Mom began thriving there as the care was outstanding, unfortunately everything changed when they lost their Director of Memory Care. Instead of hiring the person directly underneath the director that left they went outside. This resulted in the resignation of the 2nd in command. She went to another local memory care facility and took all competent caregivers with her. The quality of the caregivers currently there is very low. They don't know how to speak to the residents nor care for them. Recently we have found marks on my mother. We have turned them over to State twice in the last 30 days. Needless to say that we had to move my mother because of this. Yesterday I got a report from the Gardens on their latest investigation. They found that they were in the wrong for the injuries to my mom. Please think twice about sending your loved one to this facility.

Beware Memory Care

My mom had been a resident for 8 months. At first the care was top notch but after losing their director they went outside and hired someone incompetent. Basically all staff but 2 left and care went downhill from there. The current caregivers are disrespectful to residents and activities barely exist. This morning is the second time I've had to call State. It will be the last as we are moving her out. Both times I've called State there was bruising involved on her body

The Gardens is very nice and seems to be well-run. I was impressed that most of the staff members we met had been there for 10 or more years. They only offer assisted living, so their prices are considerably higher than places that offer independent living. My mom is currently able to do most things for herself, so we felt like independent living was more suitable for her.

The people I met during my tour were friendly. The community was nice looking. This community does allow pets and they seem to offer some nice amenities. This community was just a little farther away than what we were looking for.

An ok community

I am not impressed with the memory care area of this community. Mom does not seem to receive the same care as she did in the assisted living area. They are not following her medication schedule and she has had to ask for her medication. They offer daily activities and the community is clean. Mom does not like the food, however I have eaten there and I liked it. This community is a little expensive.

Very Nice Tour

I had a good tour of this facility. Everything went well. The community looked well-kept, and everything was clean. The staff I met was kind, and courteous. It was a nice experience, everyone was very kind too my family, and myself. We found a community that was closer to us, but our tour of this community went well.

A perfect fit.

The entire staff at this community are easy to get along with and seem to like their job. They have a low turnover rate. The caregivers are encouraging. The food is great and they do a great job with activities. This is one of the cleanest communities I have seen. This is a not for profit community. Any profit they may receive is used towards mission trips overseas.

We Were Delighted With The Attentiveness

The community is a great place and has fantastic staff who provide care for the residents. Although it cost greatly, it has been worth it. I like how excellent and friendly every staff has been with grasping Alzheimer, we liked the community for my mom. She was cared for very well and she loved it.
