Whealdon Estates had the structure of being a hotel experience. You come in, and there’s a great room, which is very nice. But to get to your individual room, you go down a long hall, like you would in a hotel. The outside experience was missing for my loved one. Which was especially important to us during Covid. We didn't want her having to walk past other people in the hallway. She wouldn't have been able to garden here, which she really enjoys. The tour itself was good. The person that met with us and took us around was very friendly and helpful. The facility just wasn’t what she was looking for. She was looking for less of a hotel experience and more of a homey feel with outdoor space.
I like it here, and I have recommended this community to others. I like my Apt. and it's quiet here. I am able to come and go as I choose. The director is very nice and I feel blessed to know her. Communication is very good and they return calls quickly.
I looked at other places and I liked the way they handled everything when I came to Whealdon Estates. They explained everything perfectly and were very friendly and helpful. The location was great as well from my family. I would recommend to others looking. One of the only issues we have had is they cannot keep a chef and also we run out of milk a lot, so we can only get one glass a day.
Whealdon Estates is a great fit for our loved one, they do offer a lot of activities, before COVID they had bingo, arts and crafts, and exercise classes every day. Our loved one enjoyed the ice cream snacks in the afternoon when they would offer them. They really do try their best to keep the residents active and engage, as well as encourage them to come out of their rooms. We loved the people which sold us at first, the residents and staff were always open and greeted every body.
My wife & I really appreciate the management & staff for their strict care for us to keep us safe during this challenging time. We have been here for 8 years & wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Love, love, LOVE these people!!
This place is awesome and the people are friendly.
Staff good, room O.K., food weak point. Lived in Cajun land, miss Cajun food.
Service is great. Kitchen is a disaster. Food isn't fit to eat. Management helpful and friendly. Room service, great job.
I enjoy my stay here at Whealdon Estates. I can't explain the way the staff make me feels. If I can say, I really appreciate the staff and what they're doing at this time during the pandemic. I hope they see this. Thank you
Personnel were very nice and friendly, the tour and facilities were very nice.
I do not live there myself , but a friend does. She is happy with everything accept the food. It is not always a pleasant experience. Joining her for Easter I see why. I found it to be of poor quality and just plain yuk. She had beef which was as tough as shoe leather. The place appears to be clean. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. My friend has been enjoying the activities, and find them a good experience. There seems to be an all around good atmosphere for someone to be.
We like the care at this community. The staff are nice and caring to the needs that are requested. They offer a nice variety of meals and they are activities and my mom likes that she is able to go and have her hair done on site. We would recommend the good care and value of this community to other families.
Since the move to the community the general manager has been very rude to me. The staff are not attentive and do not communicate well with me or my loved one. The meals are not good they don't have any taste to them. The person that had me sign my contract with Whealdon Estates was very dishonest and now things have changed drastically putting me in a bad financial situation.

Hello, my name is Katie and I work for Holiday here in the home office. It's always our aim for each of our residents to enjoy themselves and feel right at home, and I am so, so sorry to hear it sounds like this hasn't been your experience with us so far. I'd love to connect you with our resident relations team to learn more and work with you on this, if you can give us a call at [removed], one of our team members would love to hear from and speak with you. Thank you
I was a little concerned about the lack of security they had in this community, they had multiple doors that lead to the courtyard with no alarm and only had one little lock. The dinning experience was pleasant as well as the variety of meals they provided there residents
The staff are treating my loved one very nice. He seems to be happy living in the community. The staff are attentive to his care needs and have good communication with him and the family. I feel that he is in a safe place and would definitely recommend the Whealdon Estates they have been providing good services.
The community is really great. The staff is awesome and is doing a great job at taking care of my loved one. My loved one is having a hard transition, but the staff has been awesome about trying to get my loved one established. The community offers great activities and good variety of food. I would recommend them to my family.
I visited three different places for my Dad, and all three were outstanding in their own respects. Whealdon Estates seemed to have the most active "vibe" about it as I saw many more residents out and about than I saw at the other places I visited. It's a little bit older than many of the places, but it was clean and fresh, and the staff was sincerely focused on the well-being of the residents. Whealdon has the right floor-plan for what my Dad needs. I believe they have three or four different floor plans depending on what you are looking for - I'm sure they can find something for you, too!
We are very pleased with everything this community has done for us. My mother is doing very well. She is finally getting adjusted and taking advantage of all they have to offer. They do a very nice job of keeping the facility and her room very nice and clean. The staff is caring for her very well. They offer great food and nice activities. It is very lovely community and I would recommend it.
This community is pretty well-kept. The staff are doing good and help when needed. I talked to the manger about a low-sodium diet and I was told they do not add salt to their food and it is nutritious but I feel that is not enough for me. Otherwise breakfast is the best and the food is good. The community has activities available but it is not for me. I have been able to move around thanks to the community and would recommend this place.
