  • Friendly and engaging staff!

    When I have spoken to the staff at Walden Place, they are always very concise with exactly what they are doing to assist the residents and ensure their stays are great. The staff is all very friendly and I have always felt that my aunt is very well taken care of. They all know my aunt by name and they all show a high level of compassion towards her. Considering the alternatives, Walden Place is a good value considering the wide variety of services available to the residents. Especially before the Covid-19 pandemic, there were always lots of activities available for residents to participate in. Anything from crossword puzzles to group activities, they always had something to entertain themselves with. During community lock down following the Covid-19 pandemic, Walden Place has been great about providing similar activities directly to the resident's rooms. Overall, I believe my aunt is in the best type of community that she could be in considering her care needs. They have checked all the right boxes!

  • My friend love it here

    I helped my friend find this community and it is such a good fit for her. The staff is great we love them. The atmosphere is warm and homey feeling. The food is great. And they will always have snacks out if they want to snack. They go into her apartment 1x weekly to clean up and it never smells in this community. She enjoys the daily activities like bingo or a bus ride. She gets her hair done in the salon there. There is a grill outside if they want to use it. The apartments are spacious and they have little balconies. I would recommend this to people.

  • Fun Place

    The Walden Place community is a fun place with a lot of potentials for my sister to get involved. We especially like staff members [Removed] who have been very helpful to us. The other staff members are very friendly. I really like her room it is very spacious and has a nice view. We are working with housekeeping to make sure it is well-kept and cleaned regularly. My sister says she likes the food that they serve. They offer a lot of activities and provide transportation excursions outside of the community. The landscaping is beautiful along the walkways and there is seating to relax and enjoy the fresh air. I would definitely recommend the Walden Place to others.
