Review ofLaurelHurst and LaurelWoods
5.0

Along with dementia, my mother also has aphasia (which essentially means she has lost her ability to communicate). It's heartbreaking, but now that she's at Laurelhurst Laurelwoods, I have seen her socializing with people again. She seems happier and I know she's safe. The staff have been nothing but kind and supportive. I'm so happy she has a place in their memory care.

Review ofLaurelHurst and LaurelWoods
5.0

My loved one lives in this community. In fact now that she has lived there a while, MANY of my loved ones live in the community because that is what it is, a community of people who accept and love one another as an extended family. We have grown to know other residents and staff and consider this to be a residence full of our loved ones. My review is that the accommodation is up to date, soothing in colors and decor, welcoming with ample sunlight and green space, clean and beyond that, very pretty. The accommodations are homes that the people who live there can be proud to say are theirs. The mood set by the brick and mortar space says home and does not give any type of institutional feel. Far more important than the building though, is the people. The staff, the food, the care, the grounds, the help with repairs and cleaning and the activities and operations, are all done with the best efforts and intentions. Even when there are glitches, the care put into working toward a solution is evident and with every intention of finding resolution no matter how long it takes. I believe that the community at Laurelhurst and Laurelwoods, made up of the residents, the families of those who live there, and the staff (who are much more than employees and are part of the life there), is an example of a saying I'd like to alter. "It takes a village to raise a child" is something we've all heard often. Its rather limiting isn't it? The bigger picture is it takes a community to thrive in life and with our mom living in this community, I am happy to say she is thriving even with the challenges that come along as we age.

I think they do a great job. The people I've dealt with are very outstanding. Their customer service is great. I have no complaints whatsoever. We had a little miscommunication hiccup at the beginning but were able to resolve. The first caregiver they sent disclosed that she was a recovering addict in our first meeting with her, which I commend her for, but another family member was a little offended. They promptly sent us another caregiver. I think they're very friendly and very caring about their patients. They haven't been able to provide much care since my loved ones won't allow them to. But anything they have done for us, grocery trips, things like that, they've done well.

What was once the best-kept secret of the Blue Ridge Mountains is now one of the fastest-growing cities in the region. Spend just a single weekend in Asheville and you’ll see why both retirees and young adults have been flocking to this quirky yet charming Western North Carolina town. With its blend of local folk music, big-city culture, truly breathtaking scenery, and endless outdoor opportunities, Asheville glows with an atmosphere unlike anywhere else in the country.

Downtown Asheville continues its ongoing revitalization with a variety of cafes, fine dining, antique shops, boutique hotels, and high-rise apartments. Some downtown hot spots include Mayfel’s for Southern-style brunch, the Flatiron Building for happy hours on the balcony during sunset, the Battery Park Book Exchange for cozy reading spots and a champagne bar, and Pritchard Park for communal drum circles on summer Fridays and street musicians throughout the year. A couple miles north of downtown at the Omni Grove Park Inn, a historic resort built in 1913 on the slope of Sunset Mountain, guests enter through a grand lobby — known for its two enormous fireplaces — before stepping out onto the back patio area for an expansive, unforgettable view of downtown and the mountains to the southwest. But Asheville’s most opulent residence is undoubtedly the Biltmore Estate, the enormous 250-room mansion built by the prominent Vanderbilt family in the late 1800s. Like an American castle of Gilded Age royalty, the Biltmore draws in more than a million visitors every year with guided house tours, gardens, bike trails, and a winery.

Asheville’s defining characteristic, however, is its access to nature. The city is surrounded by enchanting destinations like Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the hiking trails and waterfalls of Pisgah National Forest, rafting and tubing down the French Broad River, and countless other day-trip excursions. Weaving throughout the landscape is the Blue Ridge Parkway, a scenic byway that borders Asheville’s eastern edge and attracts road trippers from throughout the country. The Parkway’s low speed limit and winding curves allow travelers to marvel at the distant layers of hazy Appalachian peaks, which seem to drift along the horizon like rolling waves that intensify with each bend in the road — perhaps this dazzling, hypnotic sight is what earned Asheville the nickname “Land of the Sky.”

 

Transportation

The city provides public bus services throughout the Asheville metro area via Asheville Rides Transit (ART), which also offers paratransit and discounted rates for seniors. Riders can bring bicycles with them on buses, which are equipped with bike racks.
