Traditions at North Willow was my first choice. Great facilities, staff, activities, and convenient to I-465. Unfortunately, it was cost prohibitive for our family.

I was amazed when I first came here it was seamless to move here. This place is very homey. The maintenance team put up bars in my bathroom to make me feel more safe. I have a screened in porch and love it here. The location is great with so many things around as well. I like that I feel like I live in a house but it is easier to maintain. I am very pleased with traditions.

The front desk staff is very great. [name removed] has a tough job but she does it very very well. I am happy with the cleaning staff and they always do a great job. [name removed] and [name removed] are two of the best people that work here. They are willing to help everyone and do it so graciously. Nurses are great and very helpful.

When first walking through the door our lobby with the fire place and sofas feels like a home. The different areas and places that we can meet other residents are numerous. We have many occasions to be able to meet everyone here. The hallways are quiet and people are courteous. We are able to be our individual selves here and still be a part of the community. Our staff is excellent and care for all us a lot. The care and cleanliness of our apartments is done for us which is very nice.

Our mother has been a resident at Traditions at North Willow for over 2 years and the quality of care she receives is very good. When mom moved to town we toured many facilities and the cleanliness, courtesy of the staff, activities provided, menu choices and overall accommodations are what made our families decision to move mom here. Traditions is a great place with great staff who truly care for their residents.

Memory Care
September 27, 2022

Traditions at North Willow has been a trusted source of care for my mother who has been in memory care for a year. No place is perfect and transition has challenges, but all challenges have been met with caring helpful and thoughtful response. I am grateful to all staff from administration down to maintenance, but especially to the staff of the memory care unit and third party caregivers who take on the extra difficulty of dealing with dementia patients. Thank you!

My Review

Residents and staff alike are very friendly at the Traditions. When I've needed to ask the maintenance crew for help their response has been extremely fast and thorough. The Traditions has a very nice music program which is offered two-four times a month, and it's invariably a good time. While I've only lived here [time frame removed], I can honestly say The Traditions is an excellent facility and a great place to reside.

My Tour Experience at Traditions at North Willow

On the other tours mom had to be in a wheelchair. At another community she surprised me by being able to walk with her rollator for the whole tour, made us so happy. That's why we chose another community.

Tour of Traditions

I toured Traditions at North Willow. The community was nice and clean. I liked the layout, and their memory care unit was located on the 2nd floor. We chose another community because they couldn't accept my mom, based on her level of care & behavioral state.

Tour of Traditions

My dad had a good tour experience with Traditions. We thought this was going to be the facility we liked the most and nothing was wrong with it, the residents just did not seem as happy and we were really looking for companionship for her.
