A Life Well Lived

This review is based on the time prior to COVID. I would tell my friends that I feel that my loved on is well taken care of. Her basic needs are meet. I am very pleased with how the staff and how they care to seem about the residents. I would say COVID isn't much different. The reason I picked this community is because of the activities. Since COVID, they aren't able to bring musicians, singers, and people singing the old songs. We are able to visit outside for 30 minutes a week and six feet apart with masks. There is no touching or giving food to our loved ones. They test staff each week for COVID. There was a situation where a part-time staff tested positive and the community decided to shut that floor down for all visitors as a precaution for 10 days. They do a great job with general communications, but if I want specific answers to my loved one's care. I have to ask specific questions.

Bad Management

Poorly run, bad management. Had a parent there and would never go back. Very expensive, but they skimp on everything for your parent.

Keep Looking

The building is very nice but the administration is all related and they don’t really care about the residents. Very unresponsive to families, expensive but Crappy food, no exercise room or plan to help your parent meet people or adjust. Stealing issues. I would not recommend it to anyone.

A Good Tour But Not For Us

We took a tour of this community which is beautiful and the ambiance was nice. The staff showed us everything that they offered,she was a nice, informative guide. On my walk through the community I saw a party going on with a group of residents and an activity in the library room. The residents seemed active and friendly. I didn't choose this community because it felt like a hotel and I just didn't get a warm n friendly feeling.

I most impressed by the elegance of the facility. The director of marketing was most kind and helpful. The rooms were clean and spacious. The community set up is conducive to support quality of life in a natural and safe manner.

Incredible Facility

Good and bad there - the facility was incredible. The facility was like a 4 star resort, like a hotel with incredible views of the river. Overall we were happy, but we had some issues with one particular person who was really good with the clients and made you feel like one was going on, but when you looked into it, it was actually different. The facilities were absolutely amazing though and definitely made you want to live there yourself!
