Melissa, We have a variety of diets we cater to. The Executive Director, Matt Dickerson, can assist to find resolution and ensure the appropriate physician ordered diet is being followed. If you would like I can have him call you. If you would email your contact information to info@phoenixsrliving.com, I will ask him to call you.

My review of The Retreat at Buford

Our loved one was only there for a few months and during his stay The Retreat did a beautiful job. The staff were very attentive and seemed to really love my husband. My husband kept everyone very entertained with all of his stories. When we got sick they let me come stay with him, they provided me with breakfast, lunch and dinner which was very nice, i really appreciated that. We were so pleased with the care he received. The med tech during the day would call me with any updated during the pandemic, and when the residents had to be locked down I was able to stand outside a window and talk through the screen. I would highly recommend them to others.

The Retreat is a nice place

Even though the activities were limited they still put in a lot of effort to have things from time to time. Our loved one really enjoys the food, and she really likes the staff members. We would recommend this community to others.

Limited experience due to COVID

From what our loved one says, the food is not good and they are having their meals delivered to their rooms due to COVID. The only activity we do know they had were bingo. We do know some of care takers take really good care of our loved one. The ladies at the front desk are awesome, they always answer our questions and help out our loved one.

a sad change of events

prior to the management change, it was great, after the change, the communication has been terrible and, they do not return phone calls. We had an incident where my mom called and said there was an issue, and we called the emergency line and no one answered. We drove there and no one ever came to the or answered the phone. Their response was we are having an issue with that phone. I would not recommend this facility.

A great place for dad

We chose The Retreat at Buford because of the location of the facility to my residence so I was able to visit my dad more often and if he needed anything I was right there. Also it was not as big so it was not as overwhelming. The 1 on 1 individualized attention he got was great due to the smaller amount of residents. They had been going through a lot of management changes and I feel like it was better when we first got there. They took excellent care of him but could have encouraged him to participate a little bit more. I would recommend the facility.

A Great Place for Mom

I love them and have nothing but good things to say. They do have activities but they are very limited due to COVID. My loved one doesn't participate in a lot of the activities. This is a good place for assisted living and memory care. I believe this is all they do. They are very attentive.

We have been happy with the response to covid, food services, laundry, and quick response of staff assistance. We have used the facetime visits and appreciate all the activities planned and provided on the center’s calendar. We of course are excited for when they will get off of lockdown and we are able to visit our family member and take him places. We are thankful the staff has kept his spirits up and encouraged him to be active.

This community felt dark when I visited. The hallways did not seem to offer a lot of light. The community looked clean and the people I met were nice. This community was a little larger than what my loved one was looking for.

Mom does not seem to like the food but I have tried it and I think it is ok. The staff are very helpful, informative and there technology is up to date. They do inform us through emails which I like. They offer a variety of activities and outings for the residents to participate in. The community is clean and well maintained.

Seemed like a nice place

I toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. The facility was well kept and clean, and all of the staff I met seemed friendly and professional. However, I don't think the room they had available would have been a good fit for my loved one. It was located too far from the dining room and common areas, the walk would have been a bit much for her to do every day.
