I moved my husband out of Waters Edge to a program better suited for his needs. They were short staffed. Activites not being done. Never getting outside. The staff were wonderful and always saying how overwhelmed they were.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
My mom is in assisted living there. The place is beautiful, her apartment is beautiful, its gated, there is good and safe walking. Nice pool, and library. Unfortunately the food is genuinely terrible. It was reasonably ok when mom moved in, but since the lockdown, its been really bad. No fresh fruit for ages. Lots of empty carbs. Unpalatable food. Mom has been spending $300-400/month on groceries...in a place that is supposed to be providing all meals. Mother and I spoke to the Director and the head of the kitchen, with specific requests: No pasta, no deep fried or breaded food, and please provide fresh fruit every day. These simple requests are not honored. Days after the meetings, I called mom and she was delivered a pasta main dish with a pasta side. i might expect this in a very low quality place, but I expect much more from Waters Edge, based on the beautiful facilities and the amount of money mom is paying. Others have made complaints to the Florida State ombudsman. I know that there has been turnover with the chefs, and the director recently left...perhaps let go. Other than the food issue he was quite nice and helpful. Recently residents who manage their own medication had locks installed in their kitchen cabinets and were instructed to lock up their meds. There is some talk of jewelry going missing too. The residents have been confined to their rooms and told not to visit with each other for the past 6 months. Activities such as they are, are in the morning, which is a bad time for older people. I don't know how other places have handled covid, but it has been very lonely and depressing for mom. I do like the place, but I can't recommend Waters Edge at this time. Maybe corporate will increase the food budget or they will hire someone who can provide decent food. At this point the food does not support health.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
