My tour review

This community was my second choice to go with. They were nice at this community and followed up a lot of times in the beginning before the tour, but after we toured there was no follow up once we had already went through.

Our Tour Experience

They didn’t have the level of care that our loved one needed. But the people who led the tour were nice. The facility was a little older but seemed very friendly. I thought it was a good value. The apartment looked good for the money. If our loved one didn’t need nursing services, it would have been on our list.

Horrible, unhealthy food!

In reading comments from several years ago, i can attest nothing has changed except increase in rent! The food quality has actually gotten worse in the yrs that my mother has been there! Food is cheap and starchy with white flour and lots of pork options. White rice, dumplings, popovers, hot dogs, etc. There is very little to choose from if you are trying to avoid salt and sugar. The facility and staff are lively but unfortunately my dog eats better! And I'm serious !

A for effort - they're consistently trying

Overall, the people are nice there. The staff attend to my loved one and are quick to respond to her. Since the pandemic, there's been less social events and activities for her to do, and therefore a lot more isolation. I think that's the same everywhere, but it's still difficult to see. There have been several maintenance issues my loved one has had to wait quite a while on. The food is terrible, and my loved one complains to me about it every day. That could be due to the pandemic challenges of figuring out how to serve and deliver meals to the rooms. However, management is changing soon from Holiday to Atria. And all of the residents are really hoping the one thing that happens when Atria takes over is the food will get better. Activities used to be good before the pandemic. Now they're fumbling and trying, but it's just not working. I think it's pricey, especially considering how much she complains about the food. Also, they would normally have a bus to take the residents to appointments and go on outings. Not having that mobility further contributes to feelings of isolation. And that makes me sad to see. I think they do a good job of taking temperatures and offering structured visits. Her apartment is very clean. They clean it every week, including towels and bedding. And I'm so grateful for all of those things. I would tell other families to look around and not rush your decision. My loved one hates the food and is lonely, but she's safe there, in a clean environment, with people who care.

My Review of Village Gate is that the Community is Dated

The housekeeping for the apartments was excellent. The overall cleanliness for the community was less appealing. The meals were delivered at various times and as late as 7 pm. There was supposed to be a delivery schedule and the community did not stick to the schedule.

Review of Village Gate Of Farmington

I've lived here for over nine years. I can only say good things about my residence here. The people are friendly, the managers helpful and there are many, many activities to keep us busy and happy. I am now 95 years old and have slowed down a lot. The virus has been disturbing, but management has done a great job keeping us well!

Review of Village Gate Of Farmington

I've lived in Village Gate for 15 years and found the community very convenient, safe and friendly – in spite of bordering Hartford which entertains frequent shootings, stabbings and fighting now the way. It was much more peaceful when I moved in 15 years ago. "Society" has moved in which was not residing here previously.

Staff has been exceptional. My complaint is with the kitchen. They can't get meals to Residents. In the dining room it's hot! Everything's cool, mushy vegetables. Can't say enough about the staff, living through this crazy time.

The community is very pleasant. The only thing negative is the food. I've lived here for 5 years and very rarely is the food anything to brag about. Covid-19 has magnified the issue with the food.

Review of Village Gate Of Farmington

My husband and I lived in Ormond IN, in another facility for 8 years. He came to Connecticut to be near our daughter. My husband died six years ago. I have enjoyed living in both facilities and I'm happy here. My only complaint is the food could be better.

Felt comfortable knowing our loved one is comfortable and safe at this community

The friendliness of the people who worked at this community really stood out to us, and it just had a very homey and comfortable feeling to our loved one which was important. Our loved one hasn't said to much about the food, but from our understanding it is fine. She did say during quarantine, they would bring the three meals to their rooms along with two extra snacks, so during that time it was just a little to much food. Her room has plenty of space and is just a perfect fit for her,
