We didn't find this facility very inviting and the sales person did not seem very interested in us. Also didn't see any residents walking around the grounds and enjoying the beautiful location. We are interested in paying monthly so the very large buy-in was not for us.
Westminster Palms always has a lot going on, just the other day we went down to the beach to have a BBQ. The location is great we are right next to downtown St. Petersburg, and we have room on the 11th floor that over looks Tampa Bay. The independent living apartments are so lovely, and they are very accommodating. The lady in charge of marketing was absolutely wonderful. She was never to pushy, and she was always available to answer our questions.
Senior living as It should be . There are a variety of buildings with varying living options that range from independent living to skilled nursing. Every progressive stage of life is available once you're a resident. Comforting. Specular apartment homes with varying square footage and room combinations. Clean, active, great location, transportation, health center, meal plans, activities and upscale amenities. The sales staff was very knowledgeable and informative without any sales pressure.
The meals and dining services before covid was grand, we had a wonderful salad bar that had about 40 different items. They have several buildings to chose from, I absolutely love my apartment, it has washer and dryer in the unit as well as a dishwasher. The location is grand.
The staff immediately made my mother, and myself, feel welcome. A lot of effort was made to make sure my mother knew the other residents, participated in activities, learned her way around, etc. The aides know me when I visit, and report how my mother is doing. There is a definite feeling of "caring" for these residents, and kindness, that we did not see in her previous location. She is happy, and so are we.
Westminster Palms is a great place if you are healthy !!! If you buy into the living in place program and get sick, is when your trouble begins. The Administrator is cold hearted as is most of the administrative staff. They care about money and will find a way to take all of what you do or do not have, without providing care any where near comparable. I would not recommend this site for anyone who may be in that situation.
My family and I toured this location with my mother, since she now lives in a house out of town and needs to be closer to us. The campus is in a superb location in downtown St. Petersburg, overlooking North Shore Park. This is prime real estate, with many expensive condos and large homes nearby, and it is within blocks of the heart of St. Petersburg's waterfront (Beach Drive). Cost is reasonable, not cheap, but reasonable. I have been to less attractive places, in worse locations, that cost more. Being a non-profit, they are not a greedy penny-pinching business. Apartments and facility are constantly upgraded and well maintained. They have an amazing amount of activities and ammenities in and around the buildings. Walk across the street to a softball game, or take their little bus down the street to lunch, the Mahaffey, museums, or the pier once it is built! Very friendly staff, and residents appear happy and content. It is much more like a fancy hotel than a retirement community!
We are extremely happy with it. My parents are extremely happy with it. It was our first choice, from our many connections in the area. And when we saw how very affordable it was, we were delighted.
I only met three people on the staff . The person at the front desk, I think she was a female, she was nice. The marketing director was amazingly accommodating and showed us around even though he had a 12 o'clock appointment. We also saw the maintenance man as he passed through back and forth and he was nice. We saw some women sitting down talking and also saw a woman with some dogs. The marketing director said that the woman was a special case because when she came one the dogs was old and wasn't going to live to much longer but they accommodated her due to that reason. I saw that with all of the Westminster's, all off them are quite accommodating. It was very clean nothing was out of place. Nothing needed to be dusted. From what I saw of the staff they were friendly. I didn't really see any of the amenities, but from what I read of them you're getting what you paid for. Didn't get to see the care or any of the activities either.
We found everyone at Westminster Palms to be extremely helpful and friendly, especially Jerry Bushey. He was especially sensitive to the specific needs of my mother and went above and beyond to help her feel comfortable at Westminster Palms.
Jerry Bushey was great and very helpful.
The community may appear to be a high end living experience on the surface, but the truth is that you will be paying a substantial sum for limited returns. The administration is absolutely disorganized and uncaring. Policies will change without notice and the bottom dollar and profits are given priority to resident well being and needs. If you plan on moving to the community, be prepared to be bombarded with empty and false promises and expect to pay for something which is not worth the lies they feed you in print and shady marketing staff which will sell you the world in order to make the sale. They will typically place you in the inappropriate level of care and later move you around to increase their assisted living and skilled nursing census. Beware, be wise, steer clear.
It was nice, of course I liked the downtown on the waterfront and stuff and they were nice to talk to them. We took a 30 minute tour and it looked like a nice place, but she told me pretty much right when we got in the car that she preferred the other place over this because she was more familiar with it.
Things are going great, it's certainly a 5. We chose it for two reasons, number one, it was close to our house and number two just the overall clealiness and professionalism of the staff when we met with them. Since then my mother in law has been very happy there, she's constantly talking about how good the food is and how nice the little programs are and how friendly and helpful the staff is. She enjoys the meals with the other ladies and she meets with them at other times, I think they just sit around and socialize but she's making friends. It's going better than I thought it would. I think it's an upper end facilty but I do think we're getting our money's worth out of it. It's definitely going better than we expected, she seems very very happy which was all we ever wanted.
