I would recommend

We chose Waterford at College View because of the proximity as well as the value for the money, they are also a pet friendly facility. The room sizes here are sufficient, they are not super big but you are able to fit things in there. When the meals were being delivered, it was made off premise so they were cold and the meals were not seasoned. I think the overall friendliness of the place is good, but it was kind of hard to tell because of covid, I was never allowed to go inside and really get to know people. I would definitely recommend to others looking.

Our Tour Experience

Based on our tour, this was a great place, but very expensive. It was absolutely beautiful, and it would have been an option had we had the financing available.

If only I could give zero stars. This place has been a nightmare. I can only recommend that people stay away. It is the administrators, directors, and owner that deserve the low rating. Save yourself from grief, anxiety, stress, fear and frustration by not putting your Mom at The Waterford.

Older of the 2' Waterford facilities, but well staffed with stable trained personnel. Facility is nice and secure.

Clean and friendly!

My tour of the Waterford at College View went well, the place was very nice and clean. The staff member that took me around was very nice and knowledgeable. They did not offer me any of the meals. The reason I did not choose this community was because it was too much on the edge of town for me.

Poor Staffing!

I had a scheduled tour of this community and when I had arrived for my appointment and rang the doorbell no one ever came to the door or let me in. I sat there for about five minutes and then decided to leave, it seemed very disorganized and my first not impression of the facility was not a good one.

April 12, 2017

We sincerely apologize for your bad experience and certainly understand the importance of making a good first impression. It is our intention to always provide the best service to our residents and to their guests. We are a secured facility, so it is possible that our visitors may wait for a short period of time while we are helping our residents. I do believe that if you had the opportunity to tour the facility you would have seen that our staff to resident ratio is actually one of the best in our industry. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience, honest feedback helps us know the areas that we can improve upon.

Review of The Waterford At College View - Lincoln, Ne

I enjoy visiting with my mother at this center. She seems to be happy and well cared for. The staff are excellent and are very kind to my mother, they are always saying this is their home and we are all family. I love Mary Kay, and the way she is always there to listen and is so caring of your feelings. She is such a great asset to your center. There are too many girls to name so I will say someone did an excellent job on hiring such excellent staff! Keep up the good work...

Communication From The Staff Is Great!

This was the best place we looked at from my sister and so far we like it. It is a very clean and nice looking community. I've an issue with the staff in regarding the fact my sister got the code to leave the community when I don't feel comfortable with her leaving with out someone with her, but that falls into the fact I need to make sure she is in the memory care part of the facility that is where she needs to be. I really impressed with the communication from the staff they have called me with any situation they have had with my sister and she can be difficult to handle at time. My sister does look a lot better since moving here and she feel like she is improving more. I would recommend this community it is a nice clean place.
