This place felt more like a 55 plus community. The roads are poorly maintained. There is a lot of construction. The villas are noisy. There is no sense of community. The villas are contemporary and they have a lot of space.

Review of The Gardens of Waterford

I have lived here for 5+ years. The food is by far better than other places I've been. Staff are friendly and very helpful. This is Alden's main campus and the grounds are beautiful. Festive holiday decorations make this a very homey atmosphere. I call this "home".

Review of the Gardens of Waterford

Admission experience: It was fine, good. Nursing care: Very professional. Staff courteousness: They are fine. Housekeeping: It's very nice and clean. Food service: You have to remember you are asking questions about a dementia patient so she doesn't really say much, I'm not sure.

Review of The Gardens

The room was ready, people did their best to make him feel welcoming, they were really wonderful. He wasn't so happy but that's just him. My interactions with them has been very good. As far as I can tell he like the food, he was somehow under the notion that he was suppose to pay for the food, it looks like a restaurant so he just assumed. I told him to eat indulge and enjoy. They have been exceedingly courteous. It's clean, they did come in yesterday to clean. I help keep clean here and there, I take out the garbage and straighter things up a bit. I am not going to get to be there everyday starting next week. How does it work? Do they take out the garbage everyday? Do I need to do anything to make sure things are being cleaned

Review of The Gardens Of Waterford

My dad has been there for 18 months, so we know everyone and how things work. If we didn't like it so much we wouldn't let her move in. You know my Mom doesn't need much help, they always do their part, they are very nice and helpful. The food there is excellent. Everyone is always nice. The housekeeping is very good.
