Would recommend Waterford

The staff are very good. They seem to be missing some people right now but it is still good. This is a very nice place. I just wish there was a swimming pool and a flat place to walk due to it being on a hillside. It is overall a nice place. This is my first experience with a retirement community.... Read more

A Great Place to Live

I would recommend that you check this community out for your loved one. The food is very good, and there is a big variety. There are three meals served each day and there is a menu to choose from, or another menu if you don't like what is being served.

A lovely retirement community

I found the staff very friendly willing and helpful. The community is more appropriate for resident who need assistance in ADLs but not so much for people with mobility issues and require higher levels of support. The elevator can't accommodate a full size power chair. Overall, it was a great place but it wasn't good fit for my dad.

My favorite

While looking into some options for my loved one I found that this location was expensive. They require a big down payment for the apartment. However, I liked this place the best out the other locations that I have seen. It’s very clean, I liked the lay out, there’s a lot to do, it looks new, it’s in good condition, and I thought the rooms were really nice. I was looking at a standard studio and its good sized, it has a kitchenette, has a little stop top burner, refrigerator, cabinet, pantry, and it’s like a little apartment.

The other residents weren't very friendly and welcoming

My mother-in-law was here and it was nice. We had a room for her at the top and there was a beautiful garden. However, the kitchen was not full and was only a sink and a microwave. The problem we had was that she’d go down for meals and they wouldn’t let her sit in certain spots. It wasn’t very welcoming or friendly and eventually she stopped going downstairs for her meals. The facility really was nice, though, and it was kept clean. If you need someone to help you sort your pills out once a week, it does cost extra money, but it’s available.

Excellent

This community looked very nice when we took our tour. The person that took us on tour was friendly. They have good food and lots of choices. They allow pets and seem to offer some daily activities. They were a little higher priced than what we were looking for.

A Very Huge Community

I saw a lot of good things as we walked through the community for our tour. The residents were very friendly when meeting them. We like the food was the best after eating a meal in the dining room. My mom didn't like the room we were shown, too small. Overall, my mom thought it was too big and said she would get lost in the community.

A dream come true!!

My mother loves it at the Waterford Terrace! Since the day she got there, they call her by her first name. They have more activities than she can handle which are great and the food is wonderful. She is always telling me that it is a dream come true!

Lovely Community!!

I would defiantly recommend this community to anyone looking for a clean and well maintained assisted living for there loved one. I had taken a tour for my grandmother and thought this facility was just lovely. All of the staff was so welcoming and patient with us. It was just too far of a drive for the family and I to get to my grandmother.

Very nice place!

A Perfect place for my mom and me since its close to my office. Really nice 1 bedroom unit with a balcony and beautiful dinning room and grounds. Lots of friendly employees and the residents seem happy and well cared for. A little pricey but it's worth it. Liked the fact that they allow pets and are month to month leasing without a huge buy-in.

Watrford Terrace is great

Waterford Terrace is great. Mom has only been there two weeks, but likes it. The Staff and Mgt. are excellent. It is a retirement or independent living place. Like an Apartment building for old people with food and activities. No doctors or nurses. Most of the residents are fairly independent and agile....happy folks.

well cared for and maintained

The grounds at Waterford Terrace are well cared for and maintained quite nice. The management and staff are all very nice people. The price could be more reasonable but you get what you pay for, although I do think they could offer a little more. They offer nice activities but mom doesn't participate. They could do better on house cleaning. The staff need to be more thorough, they do very little dusting. They have now implemented a room service fee come September 1st and I think the price seems outrageous. Overall I am pleased but I do think they could do a little better especially for the prices.
