The staff were supportive of our loved one and worked well with hospice.

Clean, Friendly, and Comfortable

The staff is extremely friendly. They have a new administrator who has come in and is working very hard to make positive changes to the facility, including the dining services. If you have a concern, they work very hard to address it. All things together, there is always room for improvement. And they're taking steps to make those improvements now.

Tour experience

We had a really great tour experience at The Gardens of Virginia Beach, I was impressed with this facility and this would have been my top choice. It was more expensive but it seemed like a step above the other facilities that we were looking into. The staff seemed more professional and they had different doctors and care coming in as well. My loved one did not want to move here because the location was too far away from family.

Thanks for visiting us and sharing your feedback. We're glad to read you liked what you saw and that the team really impressed you. Note that we do have a wide variety of floor plans that accommodate personal preferences and budgets, and offer short term stays at The Gardens. Since our community was at the top of your list, we'd encourage your loved one to consider a short term stay in order to “try out” senior living before making a commitment. They may find they fall in love with the community and that we're closer than they think! Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

Mixed thoughts

My parent has not enjoyed the time at this community. The staff are friendly for the most part but there is a lot of confusion among them. There are a lot of staff that come from agencies and we are not happy with the work. They are trying to help and I have been in contact with them and the issues continue. My mom can be difficult but at the same time there is a lot going on and she has had to wait up to 45 minutes for a response when she calls for help with a page.

My loved one was in the memory care area. The community was exceptional with my loved one. The staff were able to assist me in correcting items I was doing wrong. My loved one felt like it was a hotel, more than a community. The aide that took care of my loved one, I had her personal number to check on my loved one.

My loved one was in this community for two weeks. I only saw the front area of this community, and unaware of the cleanliness of the room. I wasn't receiving updates on my loved one regarding activities . My personal feelings is if you are Caucasian look into this community.

The Gardens of Virginia Beach, a Great place to be !

The Gardens of Virginia Beach has proven to be a first class facility. My mom went in, with a little hesitation and resistance, but, as soon as she saw her room, met everyone and experienced all that they have to offer, along with the friendly, welcoming staff and residents, she is thrilled ! I could not be happier with the choice I made for her, as well as how I have seen her thrive, since moving in.
