WONDERFUL community! The executive chef prepares great meals, the staff is extremely helpful, and being it is "all inclusive" (utilities, food, etc) the value can't be beat. The community managers actually live on the property, and are always there for my mother. They have great activities and entertainment, and it's like being on a cruise ship (without the water). My mother has extra help from the Visiting Angels caregivers, who have an office in the community, I highly encourage you to visit Windward Palms for lunch and a tour.
My Mom tried this place for a few months and decided to leave. There were several reasons behind her decision. First, it took forever to get even the most basic issues repaired in her apartment. The food was okay when she first got there but quickly dropped in quality as the weeks passed. The staff could be unhelpful to downright rude. I experienced this myself sometimes when I can to visit. They market themselves as independent living but it's clear many of the residents need full-time care. Iris Place plainly cares more about revenue than residents. The constant cost-cutting and shortcuts are visible everywhere.
This is a great place to live. It is a little older and dated than some of the other places but it is the staff that makes a place great. This place has a great and caring staff.
We all lived through bad and good times. And this place was great and very good for the first two years, then a very poor senior management team took over to start a couple of bad years. Now more than ever since the previous senior live-in managers have moved on it is back to a much nicer place to live. The old team were not very friendly (in fact hostile at times towards staff, residents, and family members). They seemed to browbeat all the staff, and appeared to divert money from quality of the food, activities, etc. I do not know where the money was going but it was no longer being spent on the facility, improvements, staff, quality food, or for the good of the residents. This man and woman ran off some of the best staff two activity director, two other husband and wife management teams, two marketing managers, and a lot of other good help. I think the staff and residents are all singing the Wizard of Oz tune that starts “ding, dong the …” just added words to include the male also … And the sad part is that the Holiday Retirement company management did not seem to care about or respond to any of the complaints that were made by staff, residents or family members
The new senior management team is much nicer and seems to be more competent. The staff is now much more interactive and seem to once again to enjoy their jobs. The food seems to be improving and the activities once again more diverse
Upon arrival of Emerald Park Retirement there is colorful landscaping. The staff could give better customers service or be more patience. That alone will help the atmosphere feel warm and inviting. The oversized windows provides the building with a lot of natural light. The outdoor space has beautiful landscaping and wide walking paths. The rooms are small with an open concept. The meals are served resturant-style and taste great. Senior activities are hands-on and suitable for seniors.
The Plaza at Pembroke Park is great for seniors. The staff is very kind towards the residents and patience. The staff is available 24 hours a day for assistance. They promote good health and strive for the residents to be as independent as possible. The building is always clean and feels like an old hotel by design. The rooms doesn't have a modern feel but are open and bright. The bathrooms are equipped with walk-in showers and hand rails. The food is okay and the culinary staff will accommodate special diets.
The Worthington is a independent living community in a nice quiet area. The community is a perfect fit for independent residents who are not extremely active. The community provides activities that are onsite as well as offsite. They have several social gatherings to promote communication and provide a ongoing outlet for residents. The Worthington offers a wellness program to assist residents with home health services as well as additional support services and resources. This community is not for residents who need frequent help with their daily needs, however the staff is aware of changes and assist with finding nursing support. The dinning experience is restaurant-style and provides tasty meals prepared by a chief. The building is clean and the apartments are average with a few upgrades. Overall this is a great independent living community.
Point Defiance Village is a nice facility housed on several acres and the grounds are beautiful.The interior is clean and furnishings on the newer side. Everything was bright and well lite very cheery you would say. They offer I believe five styles of apartments they are nice but are on the small side, they don’t have full kitchens instead kitchenettes, for those wanting to cook their own meals this is a downside.
I like the dining set-up meals are served restaurant style with a full menu to choose from, you are served your meals by a waiter. The menu has a good selection of food and it does change often. They offer special menu for those on a restricted diet. I was invited to come eat and I had meatloaf with mashed potatoes and salad it was very good. The dessert was chocolate cream pie and ice-cream made in house.
There have a fitness center and a big TV room It looked more like a place to gather and chat when I was there very nice to see. They have a full suite of activities and bring in outside entertainment.
Here is where I felt they really truly care and have the thought of their residents in mind at all times they have some rooms there available too, so if you want to go and visit your loved one, you can get a roll away bed in the apartment or they rent out a full apartment at a very affordable rate.
They provide transportation to local stores, banks and appointments via their own transportation system. I was very impressed with the cost that they had at Point Defiance Village it is very reasonable for what you are getting. The staff was great they really are attentive to the needs of their residents and I heard each of them call the residents by name.
I have visited many senior facilities and there are pros and cons to each, this facility has top-notch staff who genuinely care for their residents the level of care you receive is comforting. The activities are abundant the grounds are beautiful. Food is great, but what I really liked was the real sense that this was a community and for that I recommend this place.
If you are looking for apartment style senior living, Windlands south is all that and more. Upon visiting, I was impressed by the caring and compassionate staff, an amazing chef created menu, a wide variety of activities including outings and close proximity to the plethora of exciting sites and sounds of Nashville. A beautiful facility that is truly unique in all that it has to offer.
I had the privilege of visiting Bayside Terrace. And I must say they have a huge building. Resembles a hotel look almost. I liked their furniture decorations which was full of fall colors. They have many private apartments for rent. You can keep busy with the many activities you can indulge in. For instance, they have over 10 activity rooms for enjoyment. One including the gym where you can keep in shape. They offer restaurant style meals. As well as private meal rooms for social gatherings.
I am quite impressed with this independent community. Seniors can choose from apartments in the main building, or stand-alone cottages.
Seniors who grew up in the Pacific Northwest will appreciate the beauty of the 20+ acres they have access to—meaning that nature is always just a few steps away. There are even 3 miles of paved walkways throughout the grounds to make for safer outdoor activity.
When residents don’t feel like cooking, the dining options are restaurant-worthy.Active seniors can continue to head out-and-about solo, or they can participate in the many daily group activities. The amenities are also quite good, and include pool tables and a swimming pool.
As health declines a new home will be required as assistance is minimal.
As an independent living facility, it is an excellent option. There are plenty of activities that encourage socialization, the apartments have a nice sized kitchen, and it is in a great location.
As an assisted living facility, I would give this facility an average rating. As long as the senior only requires minimal assistance with ADLs or medication management it is good. As health declines, there is much room for improvement.
As a memory care facility there is much room for improvement, particularly the staff to patient ratio.
They did a nice job at restoring the old building and turning it into an assisted living facility. The apartments are cute and remind me of a hotel suite. The location may not be for everyone as it is right downtown Brooksville and lacks surrounding green space. They have restaurant style dining and the food is good. They will take Medicaid assistance for qualifying residents when available. Care quality can very because of staff turnaround.
Within walking distance of various restaurants and eateries, The Lodge at White Bear is at the center of it all. Friendly staff that knows each resident by name, the facility offers an individualized and customized plan for each resident. Weekly maintenance of each resident's room, including linen washing, carpet maintainance and upkeep of each resident's bathroom. Transportation is provided for residents, however, since most sightseeing locations are within walking distance, most residents enjoy walking. Facility is near various hiking trails so residents not only walk to local shopping centers, but also along a trail. Residents also enjoy a relaxing atmosphere and homemade meals and have dessert accompanying every meal. Numerous activities for residents are also available, including visits to the casino and gambling for fun.
Even though it is an independent living facility, they have all meals included. The dining room is very nice and the food is good. You have at least two choices in meals or you can just order a sandwich. You have activities on site and transportation. They also have housekeeping services. Even though they do not have personal or nursing care you may hire a home health agency come in to your apartment if you choose. The apartments are one and two bedrooms and have kitchens. Whenever I go there, they are busy with an activity. It is my impression they are mostly very active friendly seniors.
Very pretty facility. Residents seem very happy, and a little spoiled, as they should be. I have not been is the private apartments, nor have I eaten the food. The build appears clean. I have not experienced the quality of care. The residents are clean and well groomed. However, personal care is not offered by the facility so residents in need of personal care must hire/private pay for that assistance. The dining is presented very formal and classy. It is very appealing and I would like to eat at a restaurant like that. I have visited with the enthusiastic admissions/marketing coordinator, activities person and some of the managers. They seem to have their residents best interest a heart, tho sometimes they are hard to find or not interested, or too busy to talk? The activities person seems a little stressed, but really tries to find things that are interesting to the residents and tries to please them. The managers are hard to pry away from their desk and do not greet guest as they come through the door. I have never walked in and felt as if they were really glad to see me, and I have walked around looking for someone to talk to.
Renaissance Austin is a charming facility. The facility is very nice with big windows that constantly let in plenty of natural light. I find the design of the building to be quite nice with a layout that flows well. The atmosphere here is very open and airy and the light that shines through the many windows of this facility give it a very happy feel. Renaissance Austin is a nice facility when it comes to its interior.
The exterior of the facility is also very nice too. The facility is well landscaped on the outside and there’s plenty of seating areas for residents. There are also nice shaded parts of the building due to the many trees. I found the atmosphere outside the building to be quite peaceful and tranquil. There were areas of grass. The many seating areas were something that I was quite happy about.
Inside the facility is clean with a great layout. There’s lots of natural light coming through from the facility’s windows and the building had plenty of nice seating areas inside. There were plenty of areas to sit inside and plenty of recreational rooms for residents to sit and enjoy. There’s even a library and a billiard room. I also like the dining hall, despite it being a bit crowded. The tables a little bit too close to each other (or rather there’s too many tables packed into one area), but even despite this, the dining area is a very warm and cozy room.
Renaissance Austin offers plenty of food options to make sure residents have plenty of variety. Though I did not personally get a chance to taste the meals at this facility, the food visually looked very good. A downside of the Renaissance Austin is perhaps the fact it isn’t as centrally located as most facilities. It isn’t really located near any major establishments as the area is largely residential.
There is however establishments on HWY 183 which isn’t too far from the facility. Overall, Renaissance Austin is a very nice facility. There aren’t any establishments in walking distance of the facility, but there are establishments located nearby on HWY 183.
The community is rated as independent living however, the residents that I met were very sedate. I would say that the average age is 75 although the minimum age to move in is 55. The community dining area is themed after a cruise ship and has a very tall ceiling that reaches up 3 stories. I was invited by staff to have lunch and it smelled delicious but I did not have the time. The community is private pay only. They do work with the VA benefit aid and attendance for assistance with ADL's. They don't take medicaid. On site there are a few "cottages" that there is a waitlist for. The beautiful walking "trail" is completely paved and is gated to keep out critters. The community has laundry rooms on every floor so no trips to the basement to do laundry. The units them selves come with balcony's or patios. Cable TV is included in the rent along with utilities and transportation. I drove past the community a couple of times. The entrance is very small and not well marked and is on the side of a hill. There are small shops across the street from the community but its rather steep, so I would not recommend the neighborhood for those that like walking for exercise.
This is a multi-level senior independent living community with an elevator. There is a large dining area on the main floor right inside the entrance that serves 3 meals a day. There are numerous activities and community outings provided daily as well as regular outings to the store and transportation to doctors appointments as needed with reservation. Residents who choose this community are expected to be independent with all their daily activities or have state/private assistance available. There is an on-site beauty shop,coin operated laundry room, library, and small fitness center available. One negative that I noticed was that the staff were not very approachable and one was quite rude when I asked her some questions about one of the residents that I was seeing.
This place is one of the best kept secrets on Maui. First, it is on prime real estate, right across from one of the most beautiful beach areas on Maui. The staff are professional and really nice. My Mom thinks they are all fabulous. The activities are far better than most of the facilities we visited. The apartments are beautiful, and the meals are really good. She likes that it is restaurant style and she can choose from several options. This place is awesome! If I could afford it, I'd move in, too!
This is an Independent living facility in Grapevine that has the front office, dining room, elevators and stairs near the front entrance. There are apartments of various sizes available and most have grab bars installed as well as elevated height toilets. There is weekly housekeeping available for all residents, coin-operated washers & dryers, and meals can be eaten in the main dining room or delivered for an extra fee. The activities department is bustling and there is always something going on there, from daily exercise group to crafts, trivia, and residents are kept informed with a calendar & announcements over an intercom system. There is visiting physician, nursing, home health aide, and therapy services available if needed, however people who live here are expected to be able to manage their self care or have someone to assist as needed.
Absolutely a 5 star experience! I recently transferred to Windward Palms, from another community. I must say that the value is GREAT, and the staff is wonderful. The food is very impressive, and I encourage everyone to visit for lunch and a tour of the community. I could honestly say I will be a long term resident at Windward Palms.
My husband and I visited Madison Meadow in Phoenix, AZ two months ago in 2015. We were treated with utmost care and respect. So much that we are planning on moving in as soon as we are able. We give the Staff 5 stars, they are very friendly and explained everything about the Facility in detail. The Activities... we don't live there yet but according to their Calendar of Events, it is full of activities for the whole month, every month, so we'll give it 3 stars. We were asked to stay for lunch and we give it 5 stars for the Food, it was delicious and healthy. Quality of Care gets 3 stars... we're not there yet, but while observing the residents within the facility, I'd say they are pretty happy in that environment. The ambiance is peaceful, quiet and... ALL SMILES. That's important. Therefore, Facility gets 4 stars for now. And Overall gets 4 for now, also. We'll give another update when we move in. We loved the place.
Activities, activities, activities! The facility gives it's residents no reason to be bored. When I arrived some residents were loading up in a van for a trip. I walked in to see an exercising class. There were some knitting and playing games as well. Everyone seemed to be really enjoying themselves. I saw a few residents walking dogs. Not many places allow pets, so that was a big plus for me.
The Renaissance has come a long way. There have been changes made over the past year or so and this community has definitely improved. The lighting is better and the employees' morale seems to be much better too. The Renaissance is clean and maintained. The staff is kind and helpful. They have activities, socials, and outdoor functions planned for their residents.
Cottonwood estate is a nice independent living community. This community is neat with nice landscaping. The building is clean well maintained but the building and apartments could benefit from some upgrades. The apartments are small but can fit basic furniture. The dinning room is open and nicely light. The menu is not very accommodating but the food is good. The activities are average and could improve on variation. The staff is supportive and professional. This community is a better fit for active seniors but home health agencies are available for additional support.
