Review ofHarmony at Reynolds Mountain
4.4

We chose Harmony at Reynolds because it was the most attractive, clean, and pretty facility. We met with the sales person [name removed] and she was amazing. T[name removed] at the front desk is super sweet and does what she can. All of the ladies in the cafeteria are awesome and personable. I love her apartment size, the bathroom especially is a great size and the kitchen is to die for. I wish they had easier card games for residents to play, my mother in law is really missing that from her previous facility. I would absolutely recommend them without a doubt.

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.
